i love my Zojirushi's top of the line Induction Heating Pressure Rice Cooker (NP-HTC10). But i couldn't resist Zojirushi's new Umami rice cooker that was released earlier this year, which is a mid-line model that costs about half of the premium pressurized model. The main difference between this Umami model and the premium model would be the lack of induction heating technology and the pressurized system. However, after trying every setting on this rice cooker, the cooked rice is every bit as good as rice cooked in the premium model. I would definitely recommend people on tight budget to buy this model because it is almost $250 less expensive than the premium model. Th Umami model uses only 610 watts of power, as compared to the premium model that uses 1,230 watts of power, yet it produce similar quality rice as the premium model. The premium model uses considerably more energy to cook due to the induction heating technology.

Zojirushi sent me this cooker to review a couple of months ago and after cooking with it several times a week for two months, I can honestly say that I am extremely happy with the cooker's performance. Coming with loads of settings for quick cook, GABA brown, no rinse, porridge, mixed, slow cook, etc, what sets this cooker apart is the new Umami setting, which cooks the rice slower to give you a more savory pot of rice.

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. :)

I really researched and deliberated the purchase of a rice cooker, and even after firmly settling on a Zojirushi, my quest still wasn't over, as they have a number of different lines - Micom, Induction, Pressurized, and now ... Umami.

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.

UPDATE -- I have used this rice cooker to make oatmeal (steel cut oats) 3-5 times a week for the last year or so, and it makes the best oatmeal ever. You can cook the "5 minute" McCanns steel cut oats on the porridge setting, but for best results use the McCanns oats that comes in an actual tin can, very old fashioned looking. Take 1 part oatmeal to 3.5 to 4 parts water, add a little salt and then use the Umami setting. This will take a lot longer to cook, but is much better. The oatmeal comes out tasting almost buttery, really great.

----------------------------------

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.
