Go to the asian market or Amazon and get a Zojirushi that is made in Japan. Zojirushi has units that are made in other countries, but you don't want those. Made in Japan= very high quality.

There are many kinds, and you can go crazy with options, but if you only care about really good white or brown rice, even the most basic Zojirushi will be miles ahead of, say, Aroma brand. The most advanced ones cost three times more, cook rice 12 ways, and have a computer processor in them...

Barring Zojirushi, Cuckoo is another great brand but it is extremely expensive and cooks rice "Korean Style" -- leaving a ring of toasted rice on the bottom of the pot. I believe you can turn that mode off as well.

There are three things every house should have: A zojirushi rice cooker, a zojirushi water boiler, and a zojirushi coffee maker.

No the Japanese made ones have bilingual buttons and instructions. Japanese / English.

The water boiler is great. They usually hold five liters of water and keep it at 195 degrees F. Newer versions use almost no energy to keep it there after it boils. You can drink tea, have miso, and make oatmeal all day long. I didn't understand it either until I was in Japan and realized how great it was to have tea all day whenever I wanted.

The coffee maker is just nice. It takes a reusable filter and has a ten cup thermos -- no hot plate. The coffee stays hot for hours and doesn't get concentrated or burned from a hot plate.

Which one do you have ? Please

There's a lot on amazon.

I'll probably check out the ones at the Japanese market and compare prices

I have a Neuro Fuzzy model and like it.

I use a Keurig coffee maker for just water, I don't actually use K-cups.
