I have been using this model for 2 years. It is the best one out there for the price. I cooked rice for 200 people and asked for people to let me use their rice cookers. I got 11 of them - all different brands. Expensive fancy, small and complicated, simple ones, digital with a bunch of buttons.... but overall, the Black & Decker Rice Cooker Plus was the hands down favorite for simplicity, quality of cooked product and durability. I will also add that I cook EVERYTHING in this cooker. Lamb chops, gumbo, curry chicken, every kind of rice, stew, even broth and matzo balls. I love this machine. My mom has one and my daughter took one to college.

I purchased this on Black Friday as a Christmas present for my mother. My mother opened her gift and was excited to use it today. After she put the rice and water in the pot, she discovered that it did not work. The switch does not engage the "cook" option. It remains on warm the entire time. I have to push it down a certain way and hold it in order for the cook light to come on. Of course since the rice and water were already inside, I had to tape the switch on a certain way so the cook light would engage and cook the rice. I will be returning this item tomorrow. I would exchange it but it seems like several people have had this same issue.

Rice cooker stopped working after few uses. Currently it is not getting power. I have used the similar cooker a while back and loved it so bought a new one again. But this time looks like i didn't got a good product.
Rated 1 out of 5Â by Santhanam It just worked only once
I just bought this rice cooker yesterday and tried to cook the rice. The unit worked once only and now it never switch ON. Both indicators are off and the cooker never switch ON. I am very disappointed. The instruction manual do not give any diagnostic information. I know Black and Decker is a good company and strong in home appliance but I am not happy with this product. Whatever it is , rice cooker failing to switch ON after one use is very disappointing. I wonder what Black and Decker can advise me on this and their response to my situation.
