What's the regular price range for this model? Or is it just never on sale and $30 off is already more than we've ever seen?

$453-$600 based on what I have seen.
I bought it at $484~ I think (strangely enough the price I paid at the bay after coupons was the same price amazon had it for in July 2019)

I live in a small condo, and is trying to find space for it before i pull the trigger.
My parent has a Korean branded pressure rice cooker and the rice from it is amazing.
I understand this is not for everybody tho.

I cook rice every day and I find my instantpot rice cooker works just fine and it costs only around $50 when it was on sale... I understand this rice cooker must have some amazing features but in terms of cooking rice, I don't think it can do 10x better than the one I have. Maybe I am just too poor...

Oh wow. I'm guessing the price is because of the pressure feature? Is it much faster than the non-pressurized Zojirushi cookers?
Love the Neuro Fuzzy but having to start the cook more than an hour before dinner time has made it hard to plan around sometimes.

one of the Amazon reviewer's comment worries me. "Easy to use, rice is great. I ding of one star as this is pressure model, which means you can't use porridge setting to make oatmeal which is a deal breaker for me. I ended up replacing for one-down model and very happy with that one." It has no porridge setting or it has but not able to make oatmeal? Anyone owns the cooker can shed me some light?

I don't have this cooker, but the control panel literally says porridge on it...
Seems like the reviewer just decide its not safe regardless, maybe its a big no no on stove top pressure cooker

i've never had that problem with mine. I don't use the rice setting, i wash the rice, then add an equal amount of water. Then I pressure cook on high for 7 minutes...and let it either naturally release all the way or just for 20 minutes. turns out great and does not stick at all.

Odd, I don't love the rice that comes out of the instant pot (although it's serviceable until I get more counter space) but it has only stuck a little, not a whole cup. Do you always do quick release? I did that one time and it stuck more than usual. I let it do natural release and it seems fine.
