I'm joining this conversation late, and I'm sure you already purchased the rice cooker by now...but I have to second the Zojirushi comment. Actually, pretty much any Japanese or Korean brand rice cooker will do. I've had experience with both Zojirushi and Tiger, and both are great, I just prefer Zojirushi.

I've had my 5.5 cup, Fuzzy Logic Zojirushi rice cooker for...a little under four years now, and it still cooks my rice PERFECTLY every time. And by rice, I mean sweet, short, long, brown, sticky, and even porridge. You can find them on Amazon pretty easily...the ones made in China are typically cheaper than the ones made in Japan, but they work just as well. I highly, HIGHLY recommend this brand.

I think it depends on what your needs are, and what your finances are like.

I have a simple Black and Decker rice steamer, and it makes perfect rice. It is all in how you handle the rice. ALWAYS rinse your rice first, and follow the manufacturers directions for measuring the rice and water. I also use my rice cooker to cook other grains as well. It does a splendid job on grits, oatmeal, barley, and buckwheat as well as the various rice varieties.

I know this is from a while ago, but just in case you are still wondering, my husband and I recently coughed up the cash for a Zojirushi fuzzy-logic rice steamer. It was absolutely worth every penny, it makes the best rice and we use it almost everyday. We did have one of the smaller rice cookers, with the steamer tray, but if you eat rice with any great frequency, try one of the asian brands, especially the Japanese ones.

I just have a simple one, with a steamer tray on top, and I love it. It works fine for me.

I'm thinking of buying a rice cooker for when I'm cooking Asian food. Is there anyone here who has any experience with these? I'm mainly thinking along the lines of which features I should be looking for.
