This is an excellent rice cooker at a good price. Can be used a a slow cooker. This is NOT like those $30 POS rice cookers like Black and Decker. It even has a countdown timer to tell you when the rice will be ready.

Nice product. Cooks Japanese rice properly and the various functions are convenient. However, it doesn't have a retractable power cord

This rice cooker is very slow when cooking rice.
It's just died after less than 2 years of use. Of course the warranty is over.

It is a well-made product. But it takes over 80 min to cook rice for 4, way too slow. "Slow cooker" is a more appropriate name for it.

HASH(0x9f4c81c8) out of 5 stars Tiger Rice Cookers Lithium Battery Is NOT User Replaceable = $40 Cost To Replace In 2-3 Years Oct. 31 2015
By MrSmiley24 - Published on Amazon.com
Size: 5.5-Cup
My review is for the Tiger JAE-BIOU and JAE-A10U, which were the previous models to this model, but the problem I am describing pertains to the newer Tiger rice cooker models as well. I was very happy with the way the 2 units cooked rice. However, there is one MAJOR drawback to buying a Tiger rice cooker, and that is that the lithium battery that runs the control panel when it is not plugged in is NOT user replaceable. Nowhere in the user manual does it address this, nor in any of Tiger's product information pamphlets.

So beware, in 2-3 years when the lithium battery dies, you will have to return the unit to Tiger in Southern CA, at your cost, and also pay for them to hard wire in another lithium battery.

I complained to Tiger about this, and they turned a deaf ear to the problem and acted like paying $40 to replace the battery was "no big deal" for an item that cost $120-$150. I told Tiger I was going to write a bad review and the service rep said, "Go Ahead". So here it is. You've now been warned. Let the buyer beware...

HASH(0x9f4c821c) out of 5 stars Fantastic!! Aug. 1 2013
By Roger C. Penwick - Published on Amazon.com
Size: 5.5-Cup
I've had one of these for about 5-6 years. Bought a second one for a friend as a Christmas gift and just yesterday she told me it had "changed her life". My son never liked brown rice. This makes fluffy brown rice with each grain separate and he now loves it. Mine MAY have finally malfunctioned today (after being used 2-5 times a week for 5+ years) so I came on to see what is currently available. Price has dropped since I bought mine! White rice consistently takes about 40 minutes. Brown rice approximately 60. Not sure what's up with the 80 minutes for white rice for the other reviewer. If mine actually does prove to have an issue -- I will buy another without hesitation.

HASH(0x9f4c8654) out of 5 stars Wonderful rice cooker, limited slow cooker Dec 8 2013
By Chris Black - Published on Amazon.com
Size: 5.5-Cup
We've had the unit about a month and I'm buying another as a present for my sister-in-law.

Good:
- good size for a small family (1 cup uncooked rice makes rice side dishes for 2-4 people and 5 cups worked out well for a small party last week with 11 people).
- rice cooks perfectly (unlike our previous cheap rice cookers)
- rice stays warm and ready to serve (unlike our previous cheap rice cookers)
- can cook rice with meat and vegetables
- can cook rice and steam vegetables at the same time using the steamer insert
- can cook soups and stews and roasts (up to about 4 lbs) using slow cook mode
- nonstick pot is easy to clean

Bad
- slow cooker has a three hour limit. after it finishes and goes to warm mode, time can be added to resume slow cooking (if you're physically there and paying attention). slow cooked roasts and stews need 4 to 8 hours, so we ended up buying a slow cooker also.

HASH(0x9f4c8a14) out of 5 stars Great purchase June 3 2013
By coffeedrinker - Published on Amazon.com
Size: 10-Cup
My old rice cooker is not as good anymore so I got this one. I am able to make perfect soft sticky rice with this cooker. I tried my old rice cooker and either the sticky rice is too soft and wet or uncooked a the bottom. You can also use to timer to make rice when you want it done which I love because I usually have to make them over night and by midday the rice is already been warm for 12 or more hours which is kind of old. I have always purchase a Tiger brand rice cooker. I tried the American brand at Target once and didn't like that it doesn't keep the rice warm.

HASH(0x9f4c8af8) out of 5 stars If you are seriously interested in good rice, get the right tool for the job! Oct. 3 2015
By John S. Socha - Published on Amazon.com
Size: 5.5-Cup
Having taught a (non-credit) eBay class for years, I got in the habit of checking out thrift stores and the local (clean, well lit) franchise pawn shop when in town. I found this unit in an unopened box for $59.95.

There are many who balk at that price, let alone the $100+ price. But to compare this to the typical $25 cheap rice cooker with the glass or aluminum lid is like comparing a Mercedes to a Yugo (remember those?).

First, this has a microprocessor control for various kinds of rice. Second, it is a "closed system" that acts more like a pressure cooker. You may need to adjust the amount of water needed to cook your rice the way you like it.

I cannot speak to the "slow cooker" feature, as I don't slow cook. Based on other comments, it appears the Japanese idea of slow cooking may not be the same all-day crock pot idea in the USA. And there are concerns about bacteria buildup in crock pots that do not reach higher temps, which may be why this one is hotter than some expect.

In Japan, rice is part of the national identity also a sacrament. Perhaps it is a bit like noodles in Italy or brats for tailgating in the USA. So the Japanese are very particular about how rice is cooked and turns out.

I had a previous unit from another company that I found for $7.95 (used) and it served me well. But I gave it away and later regretted it when I found that my pressure cooker, microwave rice cooker, etc., just came up short.

This is not a speedy instant rice maker! Like decent noodles (not Ramen cups) it takes time to cook properly.

I'm giving it four stars only because the inner pot is not as thick as the one I had before. But it is far thicker than the cheap rice cookers.

If you are seriously interested in good rice, get the right tool for the job!
