Make every rice type imaginable with a Zojirushi Rice Cooker

Zojirushi
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.

Zojirushi
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.

Zojirushi
Mixed

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.

Zojirushi
Porridge

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.

Zojirushi
Steam

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.

Zojirushi

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:

Zojirushi
Convenient detachable inner lid for easy cleaning.
Zojirushi
Spherical inner cooking pan provides even heating for better cooker.

Accessories include rice measuring cup, nonstick rice spatula and spatula holder.

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.

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 :)

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.

Basmati rice turns out perfect, I usually add some ghee or peanut oil to the water and rice. Sticky rice or sushi rice are also very good. Quinoa turns out perfect...usually use 2 parts chicken or beef stock and one part water to three parts quinoa. I give the rice or quinoa a few rinses in water (just swish around in the cooking bowl) to remove any excess powder, and then its just a matter of filling to the right level with water or stock, pressing the button, and waiting for perfect rice or quinoa. I did notice that if I leave the unit on the keep warm function that there may be a little browning on the bottom after a while, but that is not so bad. And for anyone who is used to making rice on the stove top with two cups of water to one cup of rice, you will probably be blown away by how good rice can taste when it is cooked slowly and properly with only ONE cup of water per one cup of rice.

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.

I have only had this rice cooker for a couple of weeks but so far I like it a lot for the following reasons:
1. It makes very good oatmeal and rice easily
2. It will keep the rice or oatmeal warm until you are ready to eat
3. Clean up is a snap as the cooking bowl is non stick
4. The unit looks good and takes up very little counter space.
5. It comes with easy instructions.
This is the 3 cup version with 1 cup being only 6 oz so keep that in mind. I think it would be good for 2-3 people but no more.
I have given it only 4 stars as I have only had it for a couple of weeks so I can't speak to its longevity.

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.

it's perfect size for 2-3 household family, cook the best rice i ever had in my life. i owned a SANYO rice cooker for years, it was quite pricey but doesn't work as great as zojirushi. it's so easy to clean and I love it so much.
