Pros: Cooks fantastic rice every time. Like my Zojirushi bread maker this rice cooker is super simple to use and does an excellent job every time. It is extremely easy to clean requiring just a simple rinse of the bowl and lid. The delayed start timer is great. You just set the finish time and press start.
Cons: I wish the cord was retractable like some of the other Zojirushi models.
Summary: It's compact and stylish but most importantly, cooks rice perfectly. Just follow the measurements and you'll be rewarded with perfectly cooked rice every time. The regular setting take longer to cook rice but quick cooking makes it easy if you're pressed for time. I cooked brown rice couple of weeks ago and it was the best I've tasted. Pricey but very nice!
Pros: What a great little rice maker. I have kept rice warm for 24 hours and it still tasted great. Liked this machine so much we bought the breaker which is just as well built and produces a quality bread.
Pros: Cooks fast. About 40 min. Always perfect. I use the older rice as it is more dry. I buy a 40 lb bag from the local Asian store. Older more dry rice is better. I.e. last years crop. Great looking, light, easy to use, stores well. Easy enough that my 8 year old can make 2 or 3 cups of rice if I ask him to. 10+ hours holding time is excellent!
Cons: Expensive. -1 star because I really don't think this machine was worth the price whether I use the Gabba setting or not.
Pros: I researched several rice cookers after owning a cheaper brand that didn't cook very well for a holiday gift to the family and this one seemed to not only be the most expensive (unfortunately), but the best/best reviewed of them all (that was the good part). People consistently said it produced the best rice with no stickiness or lack of uniform texture. They were right. I bought one and for the amount of rice we eat (probably 3-4 times per week), it has worked out be...
Cons: None, except maybe the price, but you get what you pay for.
