Summary: I returned this to Amazon, no issues with the return, because there is a lot of information missing from the listing. Here is a copy of an email from company's customer service: Thank you for your inquiry. The NP-HTC10/18 cannot cook oatmeal even thru it has a porridge setting .
Summary: My wife does most of the cooking so I will answer from my point of view as the eater of rice, lol. Fifteen years ago, living in Long Beach, CA, we had a Korean family in our church who used to make the most wonderful meals for us that of course were always served with rice.
Summary: I have had this rice cooker for 2 year and I love it. I just started replacing other item in the kitchen with Zojirushi and have been very pleased with every purchase. Yes they are spendy but we are not talking about a walmart brand..
Summary: If you have never included rice in your meals this is the product to have, from the midwest we were potato based for meals, now we have expanded our menu. I would recommend this product to everyone..
Summary: This unit is great and keeps the rice perfect. We start it in the morning before work to come home to fresh rice. We once had dinner and left the remaining rice in the unit over night. I had that for breakfast and it tasted just like the night before. Never burned or dried out.
Summary: Rice comes out perfect every time. The pressure cooking keeps the moisture in and cooking fast. What's the saying...just set it and forget it. Only missing feature was the reheat option that you need with the next upgraded model, but the keep warm option works just takes longer.
Summary: Even though the price was high, the benefits have been worth it! No more bad brown rice. This unit does brown rice perfect every time! I am so happy to finally have something that makes me feel comfortable to try different types of rice with confidence! Cleaning is easy and use even easier.
Great rice maker especially for brown and wild rice

Summary: Great rice maker especially for brown and wild rice. Will keep rice warm and fresh for days too. Really does still taste fresh. Wish there were better recipes on steaming vegs. (Which this unit will do) Looks like trial and error method.
