Help me choose a rice cooker!

FoodieFrannie | Apr 25, 2010 06:25 PM

Hi - I'm getting ready to turn in my Amex points to buy a rice cooker and can't decide between the following 3 models:

1) Zojirushi Micom 5-1/2-Cup Rice Cooker & Warmer
2) Zojirushi Neuro Fuzzy® Rice Cooker & Warmer 10 cup NS-ZCC18
3) Cuisinart® Rice Plus Multi-Cooker with Fuzzy Logic Technology - up to 15 cups; With pre-programmed settings for six types of rice, plus oatmeal, soup, steam, slow cooking, and more – and easy dishwasher cleanup.

I know the Zojirushi's get rave reviews and I was going to go with one of those until I saw this new Cuisinart that has fuzzy logic and can also be used as a steamer, and supposedly you can use it for risotto - plus parts are dishwasher safe.

I have a family of four and would like to use it to make rice, rice dishes, oatmeal, grains. I don't currently make a lot of rice since I am "rice challenged". Otherwise, I'm an experienced cook and home baker. But as a working Mom, I also love my crock pot and like the idea of having rice, a rice dish, or oatmeal prepared ahead of time and ready when I want it.

Thanks in advance!
