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

This is precisely what I've been looking for. It's compact. Cooks a small amount. And gives me top quality rice. And at a reasonable price. This is a machine for those of us who know good rice, and expect nothing but the best. Without paying an arm and a leg.

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!

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.

Wow! Nice little gadget! Bought it two years ago and have been using it regularly. I know that Zoji has two sizes for these and because I have typically needed to feed two, this size is more than enough. It cooks up to 3 cups of rice which is quite a bit. Throw in some seasoning at the end and mix it all together for a bit of flavour. Set it and forget it! Takes around 45 minutes - 1 hour for a full cooking. Used short grain to long grain rice, but not brown or mixed rices yet. It's expensive $$ but if you've been eating rice your whole life like I have been... this will last and make great rice for you and your family. Anyone mention the cooking chime?? Love it!

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 :)

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.

I had been putting up with my $20 rice cookers for many years until I decided to buy this rice cooker from Zojirushi. The problem I had with my cheap rice cooker was that I don't usually eat a lot of rice and even one cup is too much for me. When I tried cooking with 1/2 or 3/4 of a cup, those cheap ones broke down easily (so I ended up buying 3-4 cookers in the past few years). With this Zojirushi, you can do as low as 1/2 cup and my rice never tasted so good.

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.

Didn't think I needed a rice maker, but picked this up on sale. Makes great fluffy rice with just the right amount of water. Plus now I get to hear 'twinkle twinkle little star' every time I make rice.
