If you're serious about rice ...

  • Summary: Zojirushi markets one more model above this as top-of-the-line which uses pressure cooking in addition to everything the NP-HBC does, but you will be well served by this model. (Pressure cooking might perhaps limit the cooker's usefulness, since you can't open the lid in the middle of the cooking...

Way more than a rice cooker--an incredible, versatile machine for a healthier lifestyle!

  • Summary: Wow! I'll just add to the chorus of amazing. Few things work better than you think they will, or people say they do, but this is one of them. In our quest to eat healthier we bought this and the crazy expensive blender.

Good for 10 months

Yuchen W., Newegg
19 August 2014
  • Summary: No Zojirushi product ever again.
  • Pros: To be fair, in the first 10 months, this rice cooker was great -- it did everything it supposed to do, and did it wonderfully. The rice tastes great, and it's very easy to clean everything up.
  • Cons: However, since the 9th month, the outside of the cooking pan started peeling off. It started small, but within two months, almost one-third of the outside of the pan is gone.

Unreliable

Guohu Huang, Amazon
1 August 2014
  • Summary: Bought it in March of 2012 and it stopped working last week after a little over 2 years of light use. Very disappointed with it. Even my $30 rice cooker bought from Costco worked for more than 10 years for me, and I would expect an expensive unit like this would last longer.

Great Result, But Not Recommend

Bob, Amazon
6 April 2014
  • Summary: There are many reviews, which state how good the end results are, and I concur. Mechanically, this rice cooker is very well made. The material look, touch and parts finish are appropriate for such an expensive unit. It cannot be said same about electrical design.

Best rice cooker out there

tinylovetreasures, Viewpoints
29 November 2012
  • Excerpt: I know this is an expensive kitchen appliance but if you eat rice daily like my family, it's a must have. It keeps rice good, longer than any other rice cooker I have owned and the rice tastes great.

Worth every penny if you like to eat rice

Summerlin, Amazon
27 July 2012
  • Summary: For the longest time we used a cheap $18.00 on/off cooker which did a good job. It was time for something new, Me, the wife and the dog eat rice pretty much every day (dog included). We are not Asian but enjoy rice daily. I usually always make 1 1/4 Asian sized cup of rice per day.
