I had a rice cooker that burned up-!
Since I read how to cook 'foolproof rice' on Chowhound - I now just use this method--below--and I did not replace my rice cooker :
Just boil the rice in water that covers it by an inch or so for 20 minutes, strain through a fine mesh metal collander into another pot, put the collander over that pot, cover, and steam for another 10 minutes.
Bulletproof and works with Japanese, basmati, brown, and converted rices. If you've got 2 pots and a collander, you already have a rice cooker-!!
I put a vegetable broth cube into the water that I boil the rice in for 20 min.
I also often add barley, lentils, wheat or rye berries + quinoa and they all cook together nicely.
You do have to pay attention so it perhaps is not as 'easy' as a rice cooker but you never have to guess about the amounts of water and it always comes out perfect.
