If you eat a lot of rice, or want to start eating a lot of rice these things are a godsend.  They make perfect rice in ~45 min and keep it perfect for over 2 days! Very convenient.  Even 3 days after the rice is still good but starts to get 'porridgy' which I don't like buy many are fine with it.  Zorjirushi is the top brand.  
Great deal OP. I don't need one. I've owned the same Zorjirushi rice maker for about 10 years. its stil flawless.  Top Recommendation.

Also,
These things will last forever as long as you take care of the non-stick.  It's easy to take care of non-stick in a rice maker, much harder to be nice to a non-stick pan.  I advise never to use a nylon scruby on it. You don't need to. I only use a sponge.  I lived with a Korean with impeccable hygiene who advised me to only rinse it and not even use a sponge.  I use a sponge but would never use anything more, because my non-stick surface is perfect. I only make white rice in mine. If you are they type to use a fork to get the rice out, don't bother buying it.

Nice thing is about these (and most) of the nicer rice cookers is that they come with a perfectly sized small rice spatula for serving, obviating the need for sticking a fork in it.

That said, I had an eight year old Zojirushi and the cook pot was have its nonstick starting to peel. They sold a replacement one for ~$15-20, just had to call.

The Aroma brand from costco cooks white/brown rice really well. $30 only.

  Aroma is okay if you just want your rice cooked. If you prefer a better (or best) cooked rice, you will need a model like this or other higher end brand. They also offer other functions plus a timer.

Based on Amazon site, looks like this model is made in China.

I can't find this on Amazon, but we have a different model Zojirushi and we love it.

  agree!  The higher end rice cookers cook rice more evenly.  On the cheaper style units, the rice at the bottom can be harder / dried out.   I have a Costco Aroma bought 13+ yrs ago and it worked ok.  Then I got a high end unit and I realized how much better in texture the rice turned out.  Also, the current Costco models have a much thinner inner pot than the one I bought - probably another cost-cutting measure at the manufacturer.

Don't know about the difference but I have one that I got from Costco two years back, and it cooks the rice the best!
