Make every rice type imaginable with a Zojirushi Rice Cooker
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.
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.

The instructions and the control panel are very clear and simple. So far, I have used this to cook 3 kinds of rice, and each was wonderful. I found that I was rewarded with good results by taking the time to go through the instruction manual before I started using this cooker. This machine is designed to carefully cook a number of varieties of rice and therefore the measurements of water and rice as well as the settings are different according to the kind of rice being cooked. And it does each one well, if I follow the instructions. Imagine!
PS Amazon.ca makes returns a snap :)
I was debating whether I should get this model or the cheaper Zojirushi NS-VGC05 and I'm glad I picked this one. The two main considerations for me were the more modern style and the spatula holder (I hate to have to look for a spatula somewhere else when I need).
The cooking time tends to be longer than those cheap ones, but that is when the timer comes in handy. I would put rice in the pot, go to the gym, and when I get back, my room smell so good that makes me want to eat more and more rice.
