Make every rice type imaginable with a Zojirushi Rice Cooker

Brown Rice

This is a menu setting designed to cook delicious brown rice. In order to cook hard rice bran and the rice inside, preheating time is extended for better absorption of water, and is cooked at a lower temperature to allow the rice to cook longer without becoming mushy.

Sushi Rice

Because sushi rice will be processed after it's cooked, it's easier to handle when it is a little firmer. This menu setting is very similar to regular white rice, but uses less water (adjusted by the water fill lines) for a firm finish.


Mixed rice is rice cooked with additional ingredients and seasonings. This setting extends preheating for better absorption of seasoning. Also, the cooking temperature is slightly lower than regular white rice, to avoid ingredients from boiling over.


Instead of cooking rice in larger amounts of water and risk making it sloppy, use the porridge setting to cook fluffy porridge. Cooking temperature is slightly lower than regular white rice, to be cooked longer for soft texture.


Steam your favorite foods. Steaming function can be lengthened or shortened by adjusting time setting.

MICOM (Microcomputer) Technology

Aided by microcomputer technology, this category of rice cooker takes having rice on your menu from “occasional” to “serious”. Basically, the microchip does all the thinking for you, as far as adjusting cooking times and temperatures according to the type of rice you are cooking, and timing the pre-soaking of the raw grains and the final “wait” period during steaming.


MICOM allows the cooker to have multiple functions on its menu, making it a necessity for any avid rice fan who wants to incorporate rice into her daily diet.

How it Works

Conventional rice cookers simply turn on and off in reaction to temperature. The “fuzzy logic” of MICOM fine tunes this adjustment to adapt to various rice types, such as white, brown, sweet or porridge, which all has different cooking requirements. The trigger to everything is the thermal sensor, a small round button at the bottom of the inner body of the cooker. As the inner pan’s weight rests on it and activates the sensor, it starts the cooking process and keeps an eye on the temperature and time.

Key Features:

Convenient detachable inner lid for easy cleaning.
Spherical inner cooking pan provides even heating for better cooker.
Accessories include rice measuring cup, nonstick rice spatula and spatula holder.

5.0 out of 5 stars This machine rocks Jan. 28 2012
Color Name:Black
Ten years later, my old rice cooker was on its last legs. Thought I'd buy a new one only to discover today's rice cookers are far more sophisticated. And boy do they cook fantastic rice. Just amazing clean light firm no-stick rice. But the real catch is the different things you can make in a rice cooker. Like Risotto. Risotto can be a pain to make, stirring for an hour or more. Not with this machine. You cook everything in the bowl, add ingredients, close the lid, wait an hour and bingo, the best Risotto ever. I'm thrilled. The machine seems very well made. Solid, not flimsy in any way. This three-cup model makes enough rice for four people at a go. Highly recommended. In fact, it's a revelation.

4.0 out of 5 stars Smaller than expected Feb. 21 2011
Color Name:Stainless Steel
This Zojirushi rice cooker is advertised to hold the capacity of 3 cups of "dry" rice. The cups are not North American 8oz cups, but rather 6oz cups. I did not cook in it, but I would estimate that it could cook 2 to 2 1/4 8oz cups of dry rice. I returned it and have purchased a larger Zojirushi 5.5 cup model, which has more cooking functions, and only takes up a slightly bigger footprint on the counter. I believe that the larger models can still cook small amounts of rice if needed.
PS Amazon.ca makes returns a snap :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantasitic Nov. 21 2010
By Sasha
Color Name:Stainless Steel
The same rice I have been eating over 30 years tastes totally different! I cannot believe what I was missing! California rice tastes like the top rated Japanese rice, Koshihikari! On top of that, no messy clean-up of spills, etc. Problem: I have been eating too much rice since I bought Zojirushi.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very impressive Nov. 6 2011
By fathom
Color Name:Stainless Steel
My previous rice cooker of 20yrs have finally given up its soul.
Shipping from Amazon was very fast.
Construction: It's a cute little unit with all rounded corners. Seems very well build, no rattle, no cheap part. The stainless steel warmer is non stick and really heavy (ie no cheap aluminium wall) and retains the heat well. Standard small plastic measuring cup.
Instructions: relatively easy, however deal with some things that are only available in Japan (eg. recipe given says to put 'the seven herbs of spring' (what are those??). This thing cooks rice, so in the end not rocket science to figure it out.
Cooking: PERFECT rice every time, whether it's sushi, basmati, scented long grain. Even tried steel cut oats (needs 1.5-2 times more water). Great to have the delay timer cooking. I would soak the oat overnight then start the cooking at 4am to have a great hot just cooked breakfast. Once done it beeps a silly tune but it's cute just like the look of the machine.
It's just the right quantity for the 5 of us.
Very happy. Hopefully will last another 20yrs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best rice I've ever made at home Jan. 27 2013
Color Name:Black
I had used cheap rice cookers in the past, and thought I was eating decent rice. Then this magical Zojirushi box entered my life. Holy sweet Jesus it makes amazing rice. Whether white, brown, mixed — heck, even oatmeal — I can't believe how much better everything is that comes out of my Zojirushi. Even the speedy "quick cooking" setting makes delicious rice, it's just marginally less spectacular than it usually is.

If you eat rice regularly, this is one kitchen spurge you won't regret.

By Choki
Color Name:Stainless Steel|Verified Purchase
This Rice Cooker is the best buy for my money. Programming is easy. Timing is perfect. The result of the cooked rice is delectable. The appearance of the cooker is handsome and easy to clean. The measumement linings on the inner-pan are helpful and precise.
In short this Zojirushi Rice Cooker is a gem in the kitchen

5.0 out of 5 stars Best rice cooker yet Feb. 25 2011
By walter
Color Name:Stainless Steel
I've used a number of cookers so far, but none have cooked rice as good as this one. It requires an hour to cook white rice, and a hour and a half for brown, but it's worth the wait. I haven't tried the quick setting, as I'm satisfied with the regular setting. The rice doesn't burn on the bottom as others used to do. The pot is heavy duty - with a non-stick coating. I was impressed with the quality of the pot: so much better than others I've used. A feature the kids liked was the tunes it plays when it's started and when cooking is finished. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A little gem Sept. 15 2012
By Bianca
Color Name:Black|Verified Purchase
Being from Japan, I'm quite picky about how rice is done, but this little zojirushi is the best rice cooker I've ever owned. Especially with Californian rice (I recommend 'Milky Queen' or 'Koshihikari' variety), it makes delicious rice with great texture on the palate that's neither mushy nor dry and chewy. The warmer function keeps the cooked rice reasonably good-tasting for a few hours as well, so it's convenient for parties, Bento-making etc. The only reservation I have about this model is that the rice tastes so good we end up eating all the rice we cook at one go, making me regret that I didn't get a larger model.
