I bought this at a local Asian store for just under $100 and originally I thought is this worth the price? This is my first computerized rice cooker (I used a plain rice cooker before). Now after several months, the answer is definitely YES.

It does a lot more things than rice cooking. In fact, I used it for other purposes more times than rice cooking:

1. It does a nice job of slow cooking. The best thing is that it has a timer control: let you specify when to start the cooking, and how long it lasts. This is very important since many cheap slow cooker does not have both features. I routinely cook beef/pork soup in the rice cooker overnight, and the next morning it is done perfectly.

2. It does porridge! I love porridge but it is messy to cook. In my old plain rice cooker, water/rice is often spilled all over the place, which is a messy thing to clean. Now this cooker has specific selection to do this and works perfectly. No spills and perfectly done.

3. Non-stick inner surface. It is very easy to clean and the costing seems to be very sturdy too (should last a long time).

4. Did I forget to say rice cooking? It does this perfectly, better than the plain (cheap) rice cooker.

4. Overall it is easy to clean inside and outside. The top has a removable aluminum plate and it proves it helps cleaning greatly.

5. Easy to use. I have used rice cooker before, and this one needs little time reading manual and it is under control.

6. It is cheaper than comparable models from Panasonic, Zojirushi. Often 10-20% cheaper. And I found no reason other models should charge more (except brand name)!

However, I do have a couple grunts:

1. When I do slow cook or porridge, if I put too much water (close to 5.

I decided to buy a rice cooker so, never having owned one, I did a lot of research. I spent hours comparing styles, brands and reviews and ended up feeling overwhelmed at first over all the choices. I was stunned between the variety of options and range of prices. How complicated can it be to cook rice? I had been doing it for years with just a pot on the stove, after all. I just wanted something that would cook both white and brown rice well, be reliable and easy to use, and was well-made.

I weighed the options between the simple, on-off kind which appealed to me in their basic functionality and lack of microchips, and the fancy, fuzzy logic kind that could do everything but clean the kitchen. I wondered if the latter kind were worth the extra money, or if they were just a product that appealed to folks who love the latest and greatest technology. However, the idea of using the rice cooker for other things like stew, porridge and one-pot meals appealed greatly to me. What to do?

After much reviewing I narrowed my search to the Zojirushi NHS-10 6-Cup Rice Cooker/Steamer for its simplicity and good reviews, and this Sanyo ECJ-D55S fuzzy logic cooker for the fact that it seemed to do everything the highly-rated Zojirushi NS-ZCC10 5-Cup Neuro Fuzzy Rice Cooker did, but for far less money.

Despite my initial urge to keep it simple and buy the basic on-off cooker, I ended up buying the Sanyo fuzzy logic cooker and I couldn't be happier. It is versatile, easy to use and takes up very little counter space.

It cooks excellent rice. My son, who thought a rice cooker was a frivolous thing to buy unless you eat rice three times a day, thinks the rice and oatmeal it cooks is "awesome.

I love this rice cooker. It has a nice steamer which is the main reason I pick over the Zojirushi brand.


- In addition the rice cooker bowl is coated w/ titanium which is much more durable then the other option. The bowl has 2.5mm thickness which when you hold it, you can tell you are getting your money's worth.


- rice is cooked just right. not too sticky or too dry.

First time I make rice with this rice cooker is completely painless and get perfect result. I use one of the korean brand white premium rice and use the water measure that's inscribed in the rice cooking bowl. It cooked just right.

This rice cooker is large enough for 5 people (two bowls each), and not too big for one person. The steamer is perfect for me to heat up left over food (or other cooking that I can do without using the harmful microwave cooker.)

Don't get the 3 cup version unless u are sure u do not need to use the steamer.

The user interface is nice and simple.

From the construction standpoint I think this is far better then the Zojirushi NS-ZCC10 (street $129+tax). The Zojirushi rice cooking handle actually can make it difficult to clean. This is a suggestion my mom made who has certainly do rice cooking for over 50 years.

I pick the Sanyo not primarily because it's less expensive but it's a better rice cooker.

Price paid for Sanyo: $99 + tax.

I'll provide more feedback after I use the rice cooker for a longer period of time.
