This is a mega rice cooker - seriously 10 cups of rice! It also can be used for stews. It has a cool touch exterior, so you don't have to worry about burning your hand if you accidentally touch the outside.
I went home this weekend to celebrate my dad's birthday. while there I was reminded of the fact that when I'm home I do most of the cooking and that I'm cooking for more people than I normally do. A 10 cup rice cooker like this would be perfect for a family. Plenty of rice for dinner and then rice to make breakfast or dessert with!
