These cookers are mainly for people who are always on the go and don't have too much time to spend in the kitchen and usually, those types of people more often than not, have no time to prepare a proper meal.
In these cases, small rice cookers are at their prime. The reason for that is; you are able to cook the a smaller amount of rice without the worry of making too much which will be thrown away later in the day.
