I looked at that one but never want an aluminum cookpot, esp non stick. Is it like teflon? Or hard anodized?
I won't use any alumimum, but now I'm wondering if it makes that much difference?
I waited a really long time for a stainless pressure cooker to go on sale, and now kicking myself for not getting the instapot on sale.
Any thoughts on the aluminum non stick?
And does anyone but the mixed grain blends that fill Indian store shelves?

|PaperPinWheel||I just used mine for the first time. This is the most perfect rice it's not even funny. Had to come straight here to tell how happy I was with it|

|PaperPinWheel||Thank you I just ordered the recommended model. A good portion of my diet used to be rice and I've decided to go back to that. I'll need a good rice cooker for such a large task.|

|runnerveggie||I love my Zojirushi rice cooker. If I were on a limited budget, though, I might be tempted to go for a multipurpose electric pressure cooker (Fagor is one brand) because they are a bit more versatile and cook great rice too.|

I don't know about keeping rice warm that long, I have heard not to do that too.

Since we're talking about rice cookers, I can't understand how it's okay to keep cooked rice on the warm function 24/7? In reviews people talk about keeping rice for days without it turning 'brown or hard'! I've heard second-hand from people (who know people) who do this.
I've always been told rice is particularly susceptable to spoilage--is the warm function enough to stop that?

I've also heard good things about the one
posted, but if you want the BEST, rumour has it that the Tiger brand ones are well worth it.
If I were going to invest in a rice cooker, I'd get one that just does rice; apparently the multi-purpose ones are not as good, from what I hear ^_^

I have this inexpensive one and it works great for my needs. Cleaning is a pain though. Too many nooks and crannies. For the longest time I didn't realize the piece inside the lid comes off. Then one day it came off by accident and I almost threw up when I saw the amount of mold in there. Ewwwwww. But it was a good thing because now I can clean it really well every time.

|LedBoots||Thank all of you. I'm going to click some links. I have been eating rice nearly daily lately, and so I feel this justifies a splurge. I have liked the Japanese models I looked at @David3 .|

You may find this discussion helpful-
I wish Vitamix would expand! with their reputation manufacturing more things like an American made instapot could work! Or would they cost $250?.....

Now I am sorry I didn't post this when amazon.com had a prime day. It was like $70. that day only
I really wanted one but couldn't justify spending anything as I'm broke. It gets rave reviews, lots from plant based blogs:
Functions as a rice cooker, pressure cooker, slow cooker, even makes yogurt easily

Best rice cooker? (In USA)
I finally want to break down and buy a rice cooker. I like the Asian style ones that can steam vegetables too, and hopefully a pressure cook option. I don't want to spend more than say, $75 but could go up to a hundred with some flinching. Any good/bad experiences with rice cookers? [emoji4]
