What is the best, most versatile rice cooker?

I am a college student looking to purchase a quality rice cooker for everyday use to prepare both delicious rice and other one-pot meals. Does anyone have any specific brands or models they would recommend? My absolute upper limit is $150, but a model under $100 would be great.

Best one-pot soup, stew, or casserole recipes for crockpots?

Looking for soup, stew, or casserole recipes where I can spend ten minutes dumping stuff in the crockpot in the morning and have a full meal ready when I get home. Something like this is ideal; the only prep is chopping an onion before setting it and forgetting it until dinnertime. No dietary preferences or restrictions, but some vegetables would probably be good. I'm seeing a lot of recipes online, but am having a hard time weeding out which ones are worthwhile, and would appreciate any favorites you care to share.

Hyper rice cooker help

I got a rice cooker, and was looking forward to cooking lots of interesting rice-based dishes in it. All the recipes I've found online, however, say things like "Cook for 40 minutes" or "Add chicken 15 minutes before the end of cooking". My rice cooker, however, manages to cook a serve of rice in about 10 minutes flat. How do I use this apparently turbo rice cooker to cook these sorts of recipes? The rice cooker has a "risotto" setting that obviously takes longer, but I'm worried that will ruin ordinary jasmine rice.

Why does my gas cooker not have gas anymore, and what do I do about it?

My gas hob/stove/cooktop doesn't have gas anymore, in any of the 4 rings. Our gas boiler appears to be working fine as we're still getting heating and hot water. The electric oven on the same appliance also works fine. The ignition works, it's just there's no gas coming through, but there was yesterday. What is wrong, and what do I do?

Can I use a rice cooker as a slow cooker?

Slow cooker/rice cooker question. I have a standard Cuisinart rice cooker and I've heard it said that you can cook other things in it as well, so my question is, can I use it as a slow cooker, in other words, will any slow cooker recipes turn out just as well in a rice cooker? If so, please share them with me! [more inside]

What is for Dinner?

I have read conflicting reviews about cooking boneless skinless chicken breast in a slow cooker. I will be making apricot chicken in the crock pot tomorrow. The recipe calls for a chicken cut into serving size pieces. I am using boneless skinless chicken breast instead. How long do you usually cook it on low? The recipe says 3-8 hours. Pretty wide berth there. Any tips?
