    • Our Opinion: We found this Farberware rice cooker listed as the bestselling rice cooker on Bizrate.com.

    • Our Opinion: We found this rice cooker listed as a bestseller on Amazon.com at a price of $27.31. This small rice cooker falls in the same category as the Farberware cooker and is a big hit with bargain shoppers. Panasonic has a good reputation amongst rice connoisseurs, and this is their least expensive offering.

      Zojirushi 5.5 Cup NS-ZCC10 Rice Cooker

    • Our Opinion-Listed second bestseller on Bizrate.com, this rice cooker from respected Japanese maker Zojirushi offers restaurant quality rice using neuro fuzzy logic technology. Although pricier than the basic rice cookers on the market, the additional functionality offered by the advanced Neuro Fuzzy logic technology is well worth the money. It offers tight control of the temperature for efficient cooking of many different types of rice including white, sushi, mixed, porridge, sweet, semi-brown, brown, rinse-free, and quick cooking (according to Amazon.com).
    • Features: 5-1/2-cup computerized rice cooker and warmer, multi-menu options, lcd display, advanced neuro fuzzy logic technology, automatic keep-warm and extended keep-warm.

      Sanyo ECJ-HC55S 5.5 Cup Automatic Rice Cooker

    • Our Opinion: Offering Zojirushi capability at a cheaper price, the Sanyo model also boasts computerized fuzzy logic control of temperature for top notch cooking of different types of rice (and even other grains). Includes a steamer and 24hr timer as well. With raving reviews on review sites, we recommend this rice cooker if you want restaurant quality rice and the 24hr. timer and steamer capability.
