I got a Zoji rice cooker similar to the one that sappy posted. Only beef is the Brown Rice doesnt quite get done enough, as mine does not have the brown rice setting.
But that thing is way better than stove method.
I also had a little 15 dollar cheapy Yan Can Cook Aroma I bought at BX while I was in korea. It did the job better than stove, but not as good as elephant.
