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.
I'm looking for cook books that present easy to follow, one pot rice cooker recipes for complete cooking novices. Shopping and freezing guides would also be nice. [more inside]
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.

I wish to end my barbaric method of cooking rice in a saucepan. I'm stuck between the Zojirushi NS-LAC05, NS-ZCC10, and NS-TGC10. I've checked the product comparisons. Will I miss not having "Extended Keep Warm" - and how is that different from the already-present "Automatic Keep Warm" anyway? What in the world is this "Rinse-Free" and "Sweet Rice" settings, and will I miss them? Is "Cake" decent? Why is picking a rice cooker so complicated? [more inside]
