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.

Its stupid easy to clean, the bowl comes out and is non stick so just wipe it out with soap and water and boom done. The instructions are translated from Japanese so they are a little..funky...but I watched a instructional video on youtube before I ordered it to see how easy it was and so they made sense to me. Overall fantastic rice cooker and have zero complaints!
Also, it makes great oatmeal, even the steel cut type that normally takes 30 minutes to cook. Use the "porridge" setting. Use about half as much water as recommended on the oatmeal box. It has two timers that remember the last time used and the cooking setting. I have one timer set for porridge in the morning and the other for brown rice in the evening.
It has a small footprint on my counter - about the size of a toater. The cord has a retraction mechanism (like a vacuum cleaner) which means here is no excess cord on the counter. There is a large handle, much like you would see on a small cooler, making it easy to put pick up and put away when not in use.
I've never done anything adventurous as far as rice goes. Little bit of salt and pepper, some butter... maybe some dried herbs? I went full on iron chef for my first time cooking rice in the Zojirushi though. Coconut Saffron rice made with Jasmine rice and saffron from Mehr saffron (available here on amazon). I had to adjust the amounts of liquids and seasonings for the rice cooker but it was extremely easy to do, especially with the handy rice cooking chart that came with it. It shows each type of rice, and exactly how much water to use for how much rice you are using, along with which setting to use.
I also found the instruction booklet very easy to follow. No confusion here, and very easy to work the cooker. I'm not sure how some people have issues in that area unless they just aren't reading the directions?
Anyways, one of my best small kitchen appliance purchases ever, along with my little personal blender for shakes.
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!
