This is a very good rice cooker. I wanted to buy a rice cooker that wouldn't break the bank and this one fit my needs. It comes at a really good price and it works just as well as if it was one of the more expensive models. Performance This rice cooker is great when it comes to time. It cooks rice really quickly, much quicker than I thought it would. And the rice always comes out nice and hot and not full of uncooked pieces. Ease of Cleaning It's very easy to clean this rice cooker. I use only a wet sponge or wet paper towel and in no time at all the rice cooker is as good as new. Ease of Use This is an incredibly easy rice cooker to use. Just use the settings, which are easy to figure out and you'll have freshly cooked rich in no time at all. Durability I use this rice cooker a lot and I have yet to have a problem with it. Design This is a great looking little rice cooker, which is what I was going for. I have very little counter space and this rice cooker fits nicely.
