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.
Steam your favorite foods. Steaming function can be lengthened or shortened by adjusting time setting.
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” .
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 their 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.

I decided to keep it but post a review here to remind the seller on their business ethics.
Since I moved back to the U.S. about five years ago, I used a cheap rice cooker/steamer/yogurt maker from Costco. It did the job, and cooked rice fairly adequately. It died on me last year, though, and my wife BEGGED me to buy a quality rice cooker to replace it. Though a cheapskate at heart, I'm also a big softie, so after spending hours online researching rice cookers in English and Japanese, we settled on the 5.5 cup model of this one. It lacks all the bells and whistles of higher end suihanki, but it has high reviews, the most modern technology and design features to cook rice well, and Zojirushi is one of the most trusted brands in Japan.
As much as I have wanted to believe that my wife was over finicky about rice (typical male?), I am not too proud to admit when I am wrong. I was so wrong - the rice that this appliance cooks is truly phenomenal! Whereas the rice in the previous cooker had soft and hard spots - some rice overcooked and some undercooked - the rice from this one is uniformly consistent. Each grain comes out glossy and chewy, with just the right amount of stickiness.
If you want to make any popular Japanese dishes, from the lowly onigiri (rice balls), to sushi - everything turns out more delicious with rice from this cooker. I truly don't understand how there can be such an immediate, explicit difference in the quality of the cooked rice. We use the same exact brand of rice every time, and my wife doesn't even use any of the "fancy" features on the device - she just hits "quick rice."
Nearly two hundred dollars may seem like an exorbitant amount to spend on a one-trick pony appliance like this (especially considering our bread machine was only around 50 bucks). Rest assured, though, this is money well spent. I cannot recommend this rice cooker enough.
In the case of the Zojirushi, I immediately felt buyer's remorse after I submitted the purchase (but wait, I don't regret a thing). I had only recently begun playing around with Asian cuisine and decided I needed a rice cooker. My only prior rice experience was burning rice to the bottom of a cheap pot or throwing one of those bags of Uncle Ben's into boiling water. I KNOW a relatively cheap rice cooker would have probably done the trick but my aforementioned ridiculously tedious research kept bringing me back to the Zojirushi and, more specifically, to this model (with the "Neuro Fuzzy" technology. I got the 10 cup version only because I imagined myself cooking for large groups of people (hasn't actually happened yet).
Ok, so, here is what I've found: This thing is awesome... not like cure a disease awesome, but pretty darn great. I followed the basic directions and made brown rice for my first use. It came out perfect. I didn't rinse the rice, I didn't do anything special... I just dumped the rice and water in, pressed the button, and perfect brown rice resulted. Since then, I do a lot more sushi rice and jasmine rice which also come out perfect. I like it sticky so I tend to add more than the recommended amount of water. I've steamed vegetables in it as well (with a stainless steamer placed inside - I know, I'm probably destroying the coating on the bowl) and that works flawlessly as well.
So often, I order things online and they might be good, they might be okay, they might be terrible... but rarely do I get exactly what I hoped for. The Zojirushi NS-ZCC18 joins my Wusthof Classic Ikon Knives and KitchenAid Mixer as the only items that truly lived up to the hype.
P.S. The only teensiest gripe is that I could do without the odd Hello Kitty-like alarm that goes off when the rice is done... but it's not too loud, so I'll live. ;)
P.P.S. A master Asian chef I know (just a great home cook, really) berated me for hours about the need to wash/rinse the rice first. I have since started doing it before placing in the Zoji... does it make a difference? I'm not sure... but it's better than getting yelled at in Chinese.
Top reviews from other countries
The footprint of this one is fairly large, obviously being a 10 cup cooker over my last one, which was only 4, but turns out the difference in size between the 5.5 and 10 cup Zojirushi models is hardly any, and you can cook a round of rice as small as just 1 cup, so why not.
The only other downside, aside from the price, is the cooking time. Being able to finely adjust the rice to hard or soft (which you can choose in the menu) comes at the cost of extra cooking time. My old dumb (for a lack of a better word) rice cooker would complete a cooking cycle in about 20 minutes. This one, you're looking at minimum 40 minutes to an hour, depending on the amount of rice you have in there. But it is oh so worth it having rice that isn't burnt or sticky at the bottom of the pan. I've used it a few times so far and the rice always comes off the inner pan easy.
The best function on this cooker BY FAR to me, is the timer option. You're able to set the time to *when you want the rice to be ready* (not when it should start cooking). Perfect if you're heading off to work and want perfect rice by the time you get back home! Perfect if you want to cook up a batch of oatmeal (yes, it does that too) in the morning - just set up the oatmeal in the pan, add water, set the timer, close it up and wake up to easy breakfast.
I am super happy with this even though the upfront cost is so high. A slight nitpick would be that the LCD menu on the cooker is not backlit, so it'd be hard to see in the dark. Oh well. Minor gripe.
Important things to know:
- It can only make 4 cups (uncooked) jasmine rice. So the 5.5 cup capacity doesn't apply to all types of rice.
- The 10 cup version is actually cheaper, so if 4 cups of jasmine rice aren't enough for you, you might want to go for the 10 cup one and save a few bucks at the same time.
- It has handles that stay cool, unlike some of the other Zojirushi models.
- Has a very handy automatically retractable power cord.
Even my boyfriend raved about the rice's texture (and he is not the type to pay attention to that kind of detail). I used to own a cheap rice cooker that cost under 20$. It depends on how picky you are. Sometimes I would hurt my teeth on the uncooked rice of that cheaper machine. The Neuro Fuzzy cooks rice really evenly. None of it sticks to the bottom to form a hard crust.
I actually bought a Panasonic Fuzzy Logic rice cooker a few years back (retailing at around 100$) and I returned it to the store, as it couldn't deliver texture-wise.
I am SO pleased with this rice cooker, there was obviously quite a lot of thought put into it. Little things like a retractable cord, plastic handles on the pot so you can pick it up right after cooking, and a well-balanced handle (the cooker stays level when picked up by the handle).
I highly recommend this to anyone looking to get a real rice cooker, either for the first time or as a replacement for an older one.
