IH system and "regular" rice cookers

Can anyone explain (in everyday English) what is the difference between the IH system and all the other rice cooker there is out on the market?
I picked up a new baking book in Asia that uses the IH system rice system to bake breads and cakes. I was thinking it should easily apply to my electronic rice cooker, but I want to be sure.
I have baked in my rice cooker before, and I got bread, crunchy on the outside, soft and chewy inside Asian style European bread. It was delicious, but the cooking method was a bit different than the original recipe. I figured it was the difference in rice cooker.
So now I want to know what is the difference between the 2? And is it worth $200+ to invest in one?
