Seeking good basic rice cooker with no warmer

liveforfood | Apr 17, 201107:07 AM     9

Well, our 25 year old rice cooker has seen its last day and we need a new one. Its a brand I never heard of before (National?) and my husband acquired it many years ago, long before I was in the picture. What we like about this cooker is its simplicity--medium capacity (cooks 4 cups dry rice to make 8), no frills, one non-digitally programmed button and no warming feature (we usually want the rice to cool for making sushi). Does such an item exist anymore? I've been looking and I am getting overwhelmed by hundreds of options out there on the net. Panasonic looks like it might have some simple cookers but I have not yet seen one without the warming function. Zojuroushi has an impressive line but far more rice cooker than we need. We want one that can handle cooking up to 5 cups of dry rice to make 10 and one that would work well if we wanted to use just 2-3 cups of dry rice. Definitely no digital features. We don't need one that multitasks--just want it to cook rice. Thought I'd pose the question to you all, thinking someone out there probably has an idea or two. Thanks!
