This review is from: Zojirushi NS-XBC05YR Rizo Micom 3-Cup Rice Cooker and Warmer, Yellow (Kitchen)
I'm very happy with this appliance. My kitchen and living room are essentially one, and all my kitchen stuff is on some black Metro shelving. Appearance really matters to me and this thing looks great. I cook for one 95% of the time and this makes a wonderful little two-pot** meal. I've been using it with THE ULTIMATE RICE COOKER COOKBOOK and haven't had a failure yet. I cut the recipes in half if it's written for a 6-cup machine and in quarters if it's written for a 10-cup machine. The recipes all use wonderful fresh, and sometimes exotic, ingrediants.

* The price was too much for me, but I bought it from the Amazon Warehouse_Deals for $108. Look for them in the refurbished tab. There was nothing wrong with the item. It didn't even look like a return. The box was scuffed up a bit, but no worse that something off the shelf at Target.
** I find the bowl too small for sauteing veggies and chicken at the start, so I use a pan on the stove for that.
