Rice Cookers

I find myself the reluctant recipient of a Wolfgang Puck 10 cup rice cooker. I used it for the first time tonight and was pleasantly surprised that it actually worked.

Does anyone own one of these, or something similar, and what else can you do with it?

I only use mine for rice - I now eat alot more rice than I did before I had a rice cooker. In fact I don't think a white potato has been eaten in my house since that time - DH loves rice. Lots of times we'll have one of those Thai rice mixes for a quick side dish on week nights.
