fine product but small, not for a large family,
This review is from: Zojirushi NS-XBC05YR Rizo Micom 3-Cup Rice Cooker and Warmer, Yellow (Kitchen)
I've had this product for a couple of weeks and have used it with several different types of rice. All came out perfectly in the sticky style. The liquid volume of the bowl is about 1,200 ML. The 3 cups description are the smaller in size Japanese cups. If you eat more rice at one meal, have a large family, this is not the product for you.
There are several things that you can't cook in this appliance including soups, sauces and a full 3 cup quantity of rice (it will boil over and make a terrible mess).
You can use it to steam foods with a very good result on vegetables.
The instruction book is confusing and took some figuring out.
This machine is extremely well insulated and does not heat up my kitchen as my very old rice cooker does. Also it doesn't put gobs of steam into the air.
I look forward to seeing reviews from folks who are more technical than I am, but I am pleased with this machine.
