To be honest there are many rice cookers out there and many rice cooker reviews so it's hard to decide which one buy. You are in same situtation? You doubt which rice cooker you should purchase? I will try to help you and in this document I'll try to explain which one you should buy. Sometimes is hard to decide which product one should buy so there are online reviews that may help. In this case I will give you some links to rice cooker reviews. These rice cooker reviews are really useful, just read all of these documents and research well. Especially, you should research well if you want to save some money because once you order a product, it's too late to purchase another one. I think the first thing you should take in consideration is size of cooker. Do you have small family? Do you have bigger family? If you are planning to cook rice only for yourself or eventually for one person more then you are probably not going to spend a lot of money. Especially if you aren't planning to spend a lot of money. However some more expensive cookers are better and not easy to shatter. For example, rice cookers of better quality are better in the long run. But problem is that the more quality stuff is, the more it is cost so you will need more money. In case that you are planning to cook smaller amounts of rice and especially if you travel a lot let me recommend you a cooker by Black&Decker. That's one very good rice cooker so you might take in consideration to purchase it. However if you are looking for a long run and you are ready to pay more money, let me recommend cooker by Zojirushi. This cooker is coming from Japan and it's probably best cooker out there.
