Panasonic Microcomputer-Controlled Fuzzy Logic Rice Cooker
Small on size and large on multitasking, Panasonic's smartly designed microcomputer-controlled Fuzzy Logic rice cooker takes the stirring, hovering, checking, and temperature adjusting right out of dinner preparations--leaving little for you to do but to enjoy delicious home-cooked meals. With a capacity of up to 5 cups of uncooked rice (model SR-DF101) or of up to 10 cups of uncooked rice (model SR-DF181), the rice cooker works well for healthy side dishes and dinners for one or two people, as well as large feasts when cooking for the family or entertaining friends.
Panasonic's easy-to-use microcomputer-controlled rice cooker features a simple, pre-programmed control panel with four large buttons for selecting up to six menu options: quick cook, steam, white rice, brown rice, porridge, or soup.
Choose one of the rice settings to cook anything from basmati, jasmine, or arborio rice to hearty wild rice, brown rice, or short- or long-grained rice. The rice cooker cooks the satisfying grain to restaurant-quality perfection, making it easy to create a fabulous main dish when paired with stir-fried veggies and tofu, stirred into soups, or fluffed with nothing more than butter and salt.
Yes, it cooks rice, but it also does so much more. For a quick and healthy addition to grilled chicken and dinner rolls, just fill the rice cooker's included steamer basket with green beans or fresh broccoli from the farmer's market or zucchini and pea pods from the backyard garden. Then press the quick cook/steam function and you're well on your way to appetizing side dishes. Short on time in the morning? Load up the rice cooker with oatmeal, grits, or other hot cereals and water or milk for a low-effort, soul-satisfying breakfast before heading out the door.
Advanced Fuzzy Logic Technology
For precise and delightfully consistent results every time, the rice cooker's advanced Fuzzy Logic technology automatically adjusts the power and cooking time--making the art of rice cooking practically foolproof.
The rice cooker's automatic shut-off function ensures peace of mind and prevents overcooking, while its handy keep-warm setting activates automatically when cooking is complete, holding contents at an ideal serving temperature for up to 12 hours.
Along with the steaming basket, the rice cooker provides a special measuring cup for portioning the desired amount, as well as a non-scratching rice spoon for authentic Asian-style service.
Other highlights include push-button lid release, a domed lid that prevents accumulated water from re-entering the contents, a nonstick-coated pan for simple cleanup, a detachable power cord, and an attractive, compact design that fits neatly on a countertop, kitchen island, or dinner table for convenient serving.
Awarded the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval, Panasonic's microcomputer-controlled Fuzzy Logic rice cooker effortlessly cooks up main dishes, sides, snacks, hot breakfasts, and a host of other meal options, making it a useful addition to any busy kitchen.
Note: Do not clean or rinse the rice in the rice cooker pan, but use an outside bowl.

Top Customer Reviews
No timer, no yogurt option, sticky rice etc.
As 7 days rice eater I can tell you this is a step in the right direction -- you will only ever use 2 of the four buttons this model has, and that is white or brown rice.
Comparing with the DE-103, this 10 cup model cooks white rice better. Maybe this is down to size and how that affects heating, because I'm fairly certain the 'fuzzy logic', heater plates and bowls are standard across Panasonic's affordable line.
The only drawback is this models size, if you see my picture, it's about a third the size of my microwave and sits fairly high -- also the 10 cup requires more room for the lid to open so it can't be kept under kitchen cabinets.
After cooking 2 cup of basmati brown rice I am slightly disappointed, the top seemed to be cooked ok but the bottom was slightly mushy.
In my experience with the SR-DF181 so far, I've found that taking the time to rinse/wash your rice thoroughly prior to cooking is very important (also, as the manual mentions, don't wash the rice in the cook pot... the dry rice is pretty abrasive) and if you have heavily chlorinated water or water with any sort of strong taste/smell, I'd recommend filtering the water you'll be cooking the rice in with a Brita pitcher or equivalent first so that the taste of the rice ins't impacted. For those complaining about poorly cooked brown rice, I think it may have something to do with the type of rice being used (i.e. there are probably some assumptions being made on the part of Panasonic). I've only experimented with Nishiki brand medium grain white and medium grain brown rice in the cooker thus far (both are a California grown Japanese style rice) and haven't had any issues.
Quick cleaning tip: after emptying the cooked rice from the cooking pot, leave the pot out or cooker open so that the residue in the pot can dry out. It's a lot easier to clean when you do this because nearly all of the residue in the pot will peel right off and can be thrown away. If you just toss the pot into a sink full of water for cleaning, then the moistened residue will become very glue-like and hard to remove.
In short, given such a low price, it is not too bad.
But, given that
- this model makes crusts, and makes rice dry and hard after keeping warm for 4-5 hours
- Panasonic has already removed basic functions such as beeping when finished cooking and a holder for the rice scoop (not asking for advanced functions such as timer/ delayed cooking).
this model definitely ruins brand image of panasonic.
- this model always creates rice "crust" at the bottom, as attached picture shows. (I cooked several times, but always). Not hard crusts, but soft one; yet this is not supposed to happen.
- rice loses moistness after hours of "warm" status; rice become dry and hard, which does not happen in advanced rice cookers.
- when open the lid after hours of "warm" status, too much water drops from the lid that the water come out of the designated pool occasionally, and it happens definitely whenever steaming. (this does not happen in advanced rice cooker as well)
