Zojirushi Rice Cookers
Does anyone here have a Zojirushi rice cooker or experience using one? I am looking for one for our family of four (two adults and two kids) and would like it to be able to cook small batches for just two of us as well as large batches when we entertain, say, 10-12. I see the three types of cookers (conventional electric, computerized, and induction heating) on Zojirushi's website and wonder whether the fancier ones actually do a better job or are, for lack of a more appropriate term, "kitchen toys". While I can't recall which, I believe other brands of rice cookers can also steam vegetables and do additional tasks. Does that make them less capable rice cookers or make the Zojirushi a wastefully-specialized device?
