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.

Cooking on the Umami setting will take longer, approximately 1 hour for 2 cups of rice. It does, however, taste better than if you use the Quick Cook function, which does well when you're in a hurry for dinner. The difference is in the aftertaste of the rice. When eaten plain, there is a distinctly sweeter taste in your mouth after chewing and it brings one dangerously close to just standing by the cooker eating gobs of plain, hot rice.
The downsides include a thick and unwieldy power cord that isn't retractable, a cover that doesn't easily snap shut, and a not-so-non-stick non-stick rice paddle. It also took a couple pots of rice for the new plastic smell to go away. You'll find that happens when you cook other items as well, as I had beef scented rice after cooking some beef soup with the slow cooker function.
The liquid level restrictions of the pot don't make this an ideal slow cooker for a family of 3 or more. If it's just you and one other person, this might make just the right combination appliance of rice cooker and slow cooker. Just don't slow cook a dish that you want to serve with fresh rice. :)
Pressurized was too costly for not much of a perceived benefit, and regular Micom was maybe not all of the features we desired. It came down to the Induction and the Umami 5.5 cup models, and the prices were similar on Amazon.
The extra Umami setting was what sold us, plus a number of small things. This is their latest and greatest model, so it incorporates all of the lessons they have learned over the years from small things like lid design, button placement, durability of internal components, and other small benefits. And the Umami setting is amazing!
We will pretty much use this for two settings - GABA for all of our brown rice and Umami for our our white.
The timer and keep warm feature are just so convenient. I love how you can put your rice and water in the night before, and then come home from work the next day with PERFECT rice ready to go right at dinner time.
First off, I don't know what I'm doing with cooking rice -- every time I have tried, it ends up slimey or burnt or otherwise wrong. With this cooker, I'm a master chef. It really is amazingly easy, just add (thoroughly rinsed) rice and water and you're done. Every grain of rice separates and is perfectly cooked, it just works. The "umami" and "GABA brown" settings do really make a difference, too. The umami white rice does actually taste better than the normal setting, though it's hard to explain the taste difference. "Savory" seems a bit too strong of a term, but does seem right somehow. More savory than regular rice anyway. Same for the GABA brown, however that does take 3-4 hours to cook, so just be aware of that.
I've also used it to cook oatmeal, which turned out fantastic. I use McCann's steel-cut labeled 5-minute, the "quick & easy" variety. If you put the oatmeal in with a little more than 2.5x the volume of water and use the "porridge" setting it'll come out very thick in basically a solid block of oatmeal, which is the consistency I like. If you start it right away it takes maybe an hour and the oats come out with a firm core.Read more ›
