Research and recommendations I did for Takoma Village a couple of years ago. Someone fixed ours so we never replaced it. It has a stainless steel interior and the new ones are teflon. We were in dispute about getting teflon (A dispute I wish someone would resolve, please!) some wanting it and others not.
Someone fixed the foot on ours and we still have it. I don't know the make and model but it is so old I'm sure it is no longer available. The next time I go downstairs (and remember) I'll look. It produces a lot of rice, not sure if it is 25 cups, though. It does get used a LOT.
Sally (below) reviews rice cookers so it might be worth an email to her if she still hasn't reviewed the larger models.

Includes larger models: http://gourmetsleuth.com/howtoselectaricecooker.htm Compare prices on larger models: http://www.smarter.com/---se--qq-rice+cookers--pt-0--tt-.html Better prices: 25 cup models. More expensive. $90+;Walmart sells the Aroma for $89. Costco also has good price but may not be in stock. http://www.nextag.com/commercial-rice-cookers They vary widely in price -- Smaller are about $30 but one for $169 recommended for brown rice, but the Oster also does brown rice and is the one she uses but it does not have a glass lid. All have non-stick surfaces. Could get two and have more options when cooking or is it just too small? 25 cup models. More expensive. $90+;Walmart sells the Aroma for $89. These are so cheap it seems we should replace the one we have. http://www.nextag.com/commercial-rice-cookers Sharon ---- Sharon Villines Takoma Village Cohousing, Washington DC http://www.takomavillage.org
