A larger version of the same machine is also available, which fits 8 cups of rice. It is called the Cuisinart CRC-800.
. This machine is quite a bit more expensive with a list price of $270 (though it can be bought at a large discount if you shop around), but it has features that make it definitely worth the price if you can afford it. One of the features that make this unit special is fuzzy logic technology, which automatically adjusts the cooking temperature and cooking time to the rice inside, so there are no "mishaps" and your rice is excellent quality every time. This is also a large cooker, which makes up to 15 cups of rice at a time, so it's great for serving larger groups of people. This is actually a common rice cooker in restaurants because of its size and the automation that fuzzy logic technology allows for (in other words, you don't have to monitor the rice very much). There are also 6 pre-programmed rice preparation modules, for white rice, hard white rice, sushi rice, brown rice, risotto rice, and soft white rice. It also has pre-programmed settings for oatmeal, soup, reheat, quick cook, and slow cook. The only real downsides to the Cuisinart FRC-800 are its higher price, and its larger size. But for those serious about cooking great restaurant-quality rice those are not huge considerations.
