"VitaClay" clay pot automatic rice cooker / slow cooker

Has anyone tried the Vita Clay cooker? It looks like a hybrid of a crockpot and rice cooker. The pot is clay.

I'm attracted to this cooker because of the natural clay (vs non-stick) pot. My primary use would be to cook brown rice, steel-cut oats, and other whole grains and cereals. And to experiment with other foods.

I wonder how much added bother this clay pot would give me...

I used my National/Panasonic non-stick rice cooker for 8 years until it broke. I'm also considering a zojirushi fuzzy-logic rice cooker, but I'm not thrilled with the non-stick pot.

For reference, here is are earlier chowhound threads about various rice cooker models and cooking methods: http://www.chowhound.com/topics/437485
