Our old rice cooker finally died, and I bought the Black & Decker. It's hard to get excited about a rice cooker, but this one is great. The pot is nonstick, so no crunchies on the bottom if you forget butter or oil. Pretty foolproof and doesn't take up too much storage space. Great value.
If you love this product, then buy it from XXXXXXX or XXXXXX for only $XX.XX. I'm still feeling sore about overpaying AND having to do my own leg work to find out the shipping cost to return this to see if I can still save money. Funny, they shipped it to me stand alone; so, it seems that they would know exactly what the shipping cost would be. Anyway, I only started looking into all of this because the instruction manual says NOTHING about how to cook any rice other than white. that is, it doesn't have recommendations for adjusting water for various types of rice like my old rice cooker. So, now I can only wait to hear from B&D whether this cooker can do it well or not. BOTTOMLINE: Lots of buyer's remorse and I haven't even opened the product--only the instruction manual.
This is not actually "Made in USA" as the product features claims. I called Overstock and they explained that the product features are "auto-generated" and often false. There are 5 rice cookers on here making this claim, I'm sure the other Black & Decker is also made in China. None of them have where they are made in the description only under product features, so I was told none are made in the US. Since this is the first hit when you google "rice cooker made in the US" I'm sure a lot of people are being misled by this. The operator explained to me that the product features can not be updated so this will not be corrected.
