This piece of kit is generally held in regard as the Mercedes Benz of rice cookers .... quite hard to get hold of in the UK, then I found this amazing website called Yum Asia, and got it from there. Cooks rice perfectly and especially without burning it on the bottom! You just put the rice and water in, switch on and forget it. It employs something called "fuzzy logic" technology, which I do not understand at all, but it bloody works. Love it.
