Make every rice type imaginable with a Zojirushi Rice Cooker
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.
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.
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.

But that's not all. Due to the manner in which this unit seals, and it's use of thermometric feedback which measures temperature throughout the cook cycle, you can actually leave the rice in the bowl all afternoon, and it will still be perfect. It's really quite amazing, and I was totally unbelieving until I tried it out myself. But it actually works. It's really quite amazing. Now, to folks in Asia, there is no breakthrough here (Sony, after all, made their first rice maker right after World War II). But to those of us over here on the other side of the globe, a device like this can seem completely amazing, and now you can make rice anytime with little effort. And it makes all types of rice: white, brown, wild, and so on. The device measures temperature and other settings to make things come out correctly regardless of the rice type.
It's a tad expensive. However, if you think of how much rice you can easily and simply make with it, you'll be making rice more often, and you'll actually be cutting down on your food bill because you are making your own rice. And it opens a whole world of possibilities of rices you would never before try, because of their complexity. It's as simple as pie now, and even with the exotic rices, you'll still be saving money.
I can'r recommend this device more highly. It's an amazing cooking tool that, if more people in the US knew about, it would be constantly out of stock. This is a six star device out of five. No Kidding.
This rice cooker is a brilliant at cooking my now-preferred brown (Genmai or GABA or 8-grain mix) rice, and having it reading when I get home from work in the evening, or wake in the morning. Every time the rice is fluffy and nutty, just the way I like it, actually cooking perfectly on the white rice setting. Genius!
I can saute a few extras using the Quick Cook setting, then hit Reset, and add the rinsed rice, water, and set the cooking time for the actual cooking. Voila, perfect rice pilaf. On the porridge setting, it makes a lovely lentil soup.
This is a handsome little unit that doesn't take up much counter space in my tiny kitchen; if I need to move it, there's a convenient handle that is well designed and sturdy. The lid closes like a luxury car door. I'm in a bit of appliance heaven with this rice cooker!
So I decided to invest in the Cadillac of rice cookers. The first thing I noticed was the weight of the rice bowl, it felt very thick and heavy for more even heat distribution. Was also pleased to see that the cord retracted into the base. On the first use I noticed that there was absolutely no rice sticking to the bowl and it was all the same consistency. There was no crust that seemed to form on the bottom of cheaper models, even when leaving it plugged in for a couple hours.
The rice maker plays a short musical tone when turned on and also when going into warm mode. I love the design and feel of Zojirushi products. There have obviously perfected this product. If there is one thing I would change it would be to change the bowl to polished stainless steel. I think that most people would rather have some rice stuck to the bowl than to use non-stick coatings.
I wish the musical ditties played when the cycle stops and starts could be turned off, they're loud and it would be nice to be able to silence them.
