Make every rice type imaginable with a Zojirushi Rice Cooker

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.

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.


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.


Use the Cake menu setting to bake cakes inside the rice cooker. How’s that for versatility?


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.

Key Features:

BPA Free Steaming basket
Convenient detachable inner lid for easy cleaning.
Black thick inner cooking pan provides even heating for better cooker.
Accessories include rice measuring cup, nonstick rice spatula and spatula holder.

Zojirushi is a premium brand and should not be compared to the $15~$20 rice cooker from Walmart. Cheap rice cookers does not produce the same quality rice as the Micom (microcomputer) fuzzy-logic model.

There's a reason why Zojirushi is expensive, and that is for the quality of the rice cooker, and the quality of rice it produces everytime it cooks. The quality and built is designed to work 24/7 and this will last for years and years (My Aunt has one of this for years and she's still using it up to now).

You can put the rice in morning, set it to cook at 6pm or 7pm, go to work, and come home with a perfect rice waiting!

- Rice is cooked perfectly
- Modern looking (stainless steel/black)
- Easy to clean
- Not bulky
- Melody/Chime when cooking starts and finished
- Timer (You can set what time do you want the rice is finished cooking)
- Rice don't get mushy/wet when left in warm mode overnight. You can have rice available all day for several days!

- White rice cooks about 1hour (but this makes the rice perfectly cooked). There's a quick cook setting that will finish in around 30-40mins, but I don't recommend it. The cook quality is comparable to a regular rice cooker when quick cook is selected.

I also bought a cheaper version of Zojirushi Zojirushi NHS-18 10-Cup (Uncooked) Rice Cooker/Steamer & Warmer, Rice is also cooked nicely, but when you leave the rice in warm mode overnight (let's say you have leftovers and you want to eat rice in the morning), the rice is wet and mushy on the side, the middle is the only part not wet. So I returned that unit and bought this.

Me and my wife are happy with this purchase. Money well spent.

Highly recommended!

Me: A foodie Dad in the USA who knows how to hand-cook long-grain, sushi, basmati, jasmine, and brown rice so they're just right. I rise early every morning to hand-make lunches for my four children and my wife because I'm socially awkward and emotionally closed off, and this is one way that I show my family that I love them. I'm a middle-class working guy, without tons of money, so I don't buy $100+ kitchen appliances on a whim. I mean, I bought my wife a Kitchen-Aid mixer eight years ago because she wanted it, but I winced at the price. I've owned this product for five months, and used it 4+ times a week during that period.

You: Somebody that identifies with me and cooks rice or other steamed grains on a daily basis.

My Review: If you're pressed for time and you cook a lot of rice or other boiled/steamed grains, BUY THIS RICE COOKER. I would give it more than 5 stars if I could. It's a triumph of convenience engineering, and obviously a multi-year investment. I've owned a couple $20 rice cookers, which I used when I didn't have enough time to spare to pay attention to heat-on, heat-off cycles when I was making a meal. Now, I just select the type of grain from a super-intuitive menu, select the time I want it ready, and push a button. The rice is always perfect when the beeper goes off, and is still perfect the next day.

Geek details: The AC power cord is flexible and retractable. The clock doesn't need to be reset if the cooker is unplugged for 2 days at a time... handy because the cooker doubles as an insulated container (like a crock pot) from which to serve hot rice several hours later.

I bought this rice cooker because I wanted an advanced rice cooker that also had the ability to steam cook. I have used it to cook sushi rice and jasmine rice, both of which it cooked well. I have also successfully cooked fish and chicken in the steamer tray while cooking rice. I believe it only allows cooking one cup of rice while steaming. I was put off by the limit at first, but I find I only ever cook one cup of rice anyway. The cooker is not as advanced as some zojirushi cookers. It makes no distinction between rice which needs to be washed and rice that does not--some models have a special measuring cup for non-rinse rice. Regardless, I am very happy. It meets my five main criteria: makes tasty rice with ease, keeps the rice tasty for a long time on the "keep warm" setting, has a steamer tray, good size for my usage, and stylish. This one seems like a good value over the much more expensive models. I'm glad I chose this one over them. I can't imagine the bells and whistles they have (such as spherical bowls and induction pressure cooking) can really make the rice much if any better, while the steam function is lacking in them.

First one arrived damadged due to being packed upside down, second arrived a day after I sent the old one back with the amazon replacement program.

Weird that the clock stays on even when unplugged, hopefully it does not die... Otherwise love it!

Have made brown, basmati, black, and sushi rice. Mixed rice and beans, rice and sweet potato, rice and daikon, even made a spiced rice with almonds and cranberries for thanksgiving that was a bit hit and saved me oven space! The steam function overdoes the cooking a bit for me, but that may just mean I need to take it out sooner. I like veggies crunchy. Still it's nice to have the basket so I can do multiple items when making rice for bentos. Not perfect but efficient to use it this way.

Have not tried any of the wet items yet (porridge, stew) or cake ^_^ but my husband loves how easy the inside marks are to see. He. Can start this when he gets home, and we have rice and whatever foe dinner.

Update: November 29, 2012
Can cook 2 cups of rice without burning or otherwise ruining rice. The body is long, so can be awkward when kept under a low cupboard, as the steam rises, hangs a bit off my counter to avoid this, but not a deal breaker and I can move it to a table, etc if I want. Fairly lightweight and well constructed. I like that you can detach or move the paddle holder to either side or put it away if you don't use it. May go make some more rice right now!

Update: April 5,2014
Cooker still works like new, no peeling, etc. makes excellent steamed kabocha squash, which may be the target of the steaming tray, as it comes out perfect in 1" cubes ( a bit mushe smaller). Porridge function works nicely.
