Got a new Zojirushi, recipe suggestions?

My dad bought me a Zoj Neuro Fuzzy 10 cup for my B-Day.. I love the look, kinda like something from Star Wars.
Anyway, anyone out there have something they love about their Zoj, aside from rice of course.
I have always had trouble with brown rice and this one has that setting. Does it perform well for that?
Thanks in advance
Yes, I've never had a problem with the brown rice setting. I love my Zojirushi. I also love the programming feature. When you always get home from work after 8P, it's nice to have freshly cooked rice waiting for you. Have fun breaking in your new rice cooker.
My Dad got a big Fujitronic automatic job...doesn't cook brown rice very well at all. The old cheapo National however cooks brown rice very well. My guess is the newer cookers have a moisture or some other sensor that shuts it off too soon...the fuzzy logic however might help. Also might look for split grain brown rice, usually at Japanese stores.
Well, I just made some rice pudding in it and the flavor was great!
Hopefully, everything else will be. I dug out my copy of The Ultimate Rice Cooker Cookbook and am going to try several other things this week.
I just cooked some brown rice (short grain) in mine yesterday. I don't like the brown rice setting OR the suggested water amount. Makes the rice soggy, IMO. I cook mine on the white rice setting, with the white rice water guides. This might be dependent on the type of brown rice you're working with...
How did you make the rice pudding?
I used the Old Fashioned recipe from The Ultimate Rice Cooker.
2/3 C medium grain rice
4 C milk
1 large egg
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
put rice and milk in cooker. set to porridge. When it stops, add remaining ingredients [tempering first]; reset to porridge and stir every 15 minutes or so [it will thicken as it sets]..
after that, I added some demerera sugar to the top just for crunch..love that taste
Hubby ate three helpings.
It was also good cold the next day
