Micro Computerized Fuzzy Logic 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.

Top Customer Reviews
I was raised in Japan, and not ashamed to admit that I am a rice snob. If you invite me over for dinner and prepare Uncle Ben's or Rice-a-Roni, I will politely decline any portions and silently wonder for the rest of the evening what on earth would possess anyone to do such a thing. Since you're in the market for a rice cooker, you probably know what I mean... If I'm coming over to my Filipino or Chamorro friend's home for dinner, I always bring the "rice power" with me, and everyone loves it. You really don't need to read the rest of this review - just buy this model knowing you'll be happy. For those who aren't entirely convinced, read on.
I use my Zoji for four types of food: umami white rice, GABA brown rice, steel cut oat porridge, and slow-cooked turkey chili. Preparing any of these items is ridiculously easy and convenient. Making white rice? The Zoji works perfectly on all three settings - quick, white, or umami. My mainstay white rice is Calrose, but I've also made Jasmine, Basmati, and Arborio. Every batch has been nothing short of perfect. The Calrose and other short/medium grains come out perfectly sticky, while the long grain varieties are fluffier with less stickiness. My favorite by far is Calrose cooked on umami setting. It is better than I get at many restaurants. Do you own a restaurant? Then please buy a few of these and stop serving me terrible rice!
I have been trying to eat more brown rice for health, but as we all know, brown rice is gross. The good news is, this cooker makes brown rice... goodish? Although it takes longer, I use the GABA setting, which makes the brown rice much softer and taste a lot less like paper. It will never be as delicious as umami Calrose, but is still the best tasting brown rice I've ever had. Again, medium grain comes out slightly sticky and long grain less so.
Want a delicious breakfast? 1 cup steel cut oats + 1 cup almond or coconut milk + 2 cups water = super delicious, creamy porridge. Throw it all in the cooker the night before, set the timer, and wake up to a hearty porridge that can be topped with berries and have your family thinking you channeled the spirit of Martha Stewart!
Lastly, the slow cooker setting works just as good as any crock pot. My world-famous five-alarm turkey chili cooks to perfection, and the automatic "keep warm" function maintains the perfect serving temperature for as long as I need it to. I mention this and the porridge just to reiterate that this cooker is actually pretty versatile and good for more than "just rice."
This Zoji has all the features a regular household will ever need, and makes delicious rice. If this cooker is in your budget, stop reading now and click the buy button! If the cost is more than you had hoped to spend, my honest advice is to hold off, save up a little longer, and come back when you can afford it. You can thank me for years to come as you feast on rice that is fit for the gods!
The cooker itself is beautiful and will definitely be taken care of better than any pets I ever owned just because I won't let anything bad happen to my expensive, fancy rice cooker. No one's going to be eating cheetos and touching my cooker! It is extremely easy to use, including the timing function, which is also my favorite. You just set the time you want the rice to be done and it'll start itself up accordingly. What a time we live in!
The ONLY negative is that the plug doesn't retract back into itself like my old cooker and comes instead detached from the machine. The cord is extremely loose and will fall out if you just barely touch it so I just leave mine plugged in and yell at whoever comes close to the plug.
Suggestion: While it will keep your rice warm for however many days you want it to, it will definitely start to go bad after two days. I feel like with my older cooker, I would still eat rice days after it was finished cooking on the warm setting, but was probably able to do so because it dried out the rice. This cooker keeps the rice moist and so it will go bad and develop a smell if you don't eat it quick enough. So eat up!
