Why Should I Use A Rice Cooker To Cook Rice?
The rice cooker is an efficient and time-saving kitchen appliance that cooks perfect rice every time. Many people have difficulty cooking rice on the stove because the burner cannot be turned down to a low enough simmer for the steaming portion of cooking rice. The result is rice that is scorched or burned. With a Zojirushi rice cooker, rice will be fluffy and delicious. Plus, you won’t have to stand over the stove while it cooks. Just set it and leave. All Zojirushi rice cookers have durable nonstick inner cooking pans for quick and easy cleaning.
How Is Rice Measured? What Does The Capacity Mean?
Every Zojirushi rice cooker comes with a plastic measuring cup. This cup has a capacity of 6-ounces, or about 3/4 of a U.S. measuring cup. The capacity of the rice cooker is counted in these 6-ounce cups of uncooked rice. One 6-ounce cup of raw rice makes about 3, 6-ounce cups of cooked rice. Do not confuse the rice cooker measuring cup with U.S. measuring cups; they are different. All Zojirushi rice cookers come with a special measuring cup and nonstick rice spatula for serving. The capacity of a rice cooker is stated in the numbers of 6-ounce cups of raw rice.
|Capacity||Up to 3, 6 or 10 cups||Up to 5.5 or 10 cups||Up to 5.5 or 10 cups||Up to 5.5 or 10 cups||Up to 5.5 or 10 cups||Up to 5.5 or 10 cups|

I'm not a rice connoisseur...the Japanese take it to an art form, so maybe the more complex machines result in a better dining experience. For me, this rice cooker delivers fluffy, perfect rice every time. I tend to cook about 3 cups (dry volume) rice each time. Add water, add rice, flip the lever to "cook", and in about 20-25 minutes I have great rice for dinner. If that's what you need, then this is the product.
Differences from the original - interior is non-stick aluminum which is a huge improvement over the original bare aluminum. Rice doesn't stick. There are markings in the "pot" to show where to fill the water - these are definitely harder to read with the non-stick coating. It's a bit of a pain, but not a deal breaker. Lid is glass and has a small weep hole. I read that this hole "spit" and made a mess. This is NOT my experience at all. In fact, my old lid (light aluminum, no hole) occasionally caused a small mess. This does not.
I've had this product now for 3 months. It's a simple cooker that works perfectly and exactly like the one I had for 25 years. Very, very happy.
It does spurt and sputter, especially if you are making brown rice (probably due to additional "stuff" in the brown rice causing foamier bubbles, in addition to needing more water for brown rice). As long as the lid is seated properly (not floating on water or a stray rice grain), and you cover it with a towel (flour sack towel works great) when it's cooking, it's fine. But I am not a countertop neatnik. I definitely make sure the lid is seated properly, and cover it with a tea towel or kitchen towel. I almost never pre-soak my rice, even brown rice. If you want a spurt-free rice cooker, you need one of those with the hinged, latching lids, they have special gaskets and systems to manage the bubbling and overflow. The benefit of this simpler style is that it's less bulky and easy to clean with warm water and a dish brush.
As for complaints about cooking quality, you really need to use water ratios from your rice packaging, not the generic ones that come with the rice cooker. For Japanese-style short or medium grain white or haiga (partially milled) rice (Nishiki, Botan Calrose, for example) I would use 1 cup rinsed rice : 1.25 cup water. (This is the 6 oz cup that comes with the cooker.) I also use a Japanese Kagayaki medium grain brown rice that does exceptionally well with just 1 cup rinsed rice : 2:25 cups water, and cooks up fine with no pre-soaking. I find brown rices to be more variable in their water needs, unfortunately; so YMMV.
I don't like constantly plugging & unplugging things so I use a simple plug-in switch at the wall to shut it off. I found one at my local hardware store years ago, it's similar to this GE Grounded On/Off Power Switch, Plug-In, White, Energy Efficient, Space Saving Design, UL Listed, 15A, 120VAC, 1800W, 25511 .
The biggest negative for the 1.2L model (the middle size, I think it holds 5-6 cups uncooked max) is that the bottom does seem too hot. Making just 1 cup (uncooked) rice tends to result in rice that's dry and crunchy on the bottom. My typical batch is 2 cups raw rice at a time, and I find 2-3 cup batches work well. The bottom can get slightly brown, but if you turn it off within 30 minutes or so it doesn't dry out too much. However, it's definitely annoying, and is the one problem that has made me want to ever investigate a different rice cooker ever.
However, since this has proven to be a workhorse and reliably produces delicious rice for my purposes, I'm still giving it 5 stars.

I’ve made white, brown rice and quinoa and they’ve all turned out beautifully.
This machine is pretty much fool proof.
I have several zojirushi appliances and it is a top brand. I’ve never had any problems.
This is a one time purchase rice cooker. You should never have to buy another one.
