I just love this rice cooker. I have two different sizes but the smaller one is used most often.I don't remember where I purchased the first one from, but it could have been one of the chains - KMart or somewhere like that. It lasted about 10 years and I got the last one from a shop at DFO in Brisbane.Now I see them in Robyn's Kitchen for about $20. Still worth the price, but a bit dearer than I paid for it.Don't know the brand but steer clear of the type you get in the supermarket with just the bowl and the lid. They don't work nearly as well as this one.
