Summary: This little machine makes just the right amount for the two of us with a little left over for snacking on later. We eat brown & wild rice mostly; it cooks perfectly every time, keeps it warm & delicious for the duration of a meal & even much longer. I haven't tried any of the other cooking options yet (white rice, porridge). It's also a snap to clean. Bonus: looks great on the counter, matches my other stainless appliances!
Summary: I love my zojirushi rice cooker. I use it every morning to make quinoa and buckwheat. You can either use a long or short cook cycle. It makes wonderful rice and is so very easy to use. It plays a fun little tune when you hit the start button and when to cycle is complete. Also, it is very easy to clean.
A must have for every kitchen!
Summary: It is so nice to make perfect rice and quinoa every time, and have it done when you want it. We cook whole grains more often because of it.
Before purchasing I was a bit concerned from some other testimonials about the unclear directions but they were not that bad. The problem, if there is one, is that the manual shows the process a couple of times, one with the timer and one without the timer. Read the directions and you will do fine.
Summary: I don't have an elaborate story or clever review, but I do want to say that this rice cooker is awesome. the size is perfect, even for 5-6 people, the rice comes out fluffy and wonderful all the time, and the timed cooker works really well. I lost the little cup it came with and now only eyeball it, but it still comes out right. The cooker is really easy to use and keeps time better than anything else I own.
Summary: I never really thought of myself as someone who made rice a lot, but I always hated making it on the stove. I looked into a few rice cookers on amazon and saw they were all pretty poorly reviewed, except this one. This is the best appliance I have ever purchased, bar none. It makes it so easy to get restaurant-quality rice in about 30-45 minutes (depending on if you use the "quick" setting or not), and rice becomes a variable that you don't need to worry about while...
Summary: While I've only used this five times now I'm in love, It cooks a perfect fluffy and soft rice. I've never owned a rice cooker before, but this is becoming a regular in my daily meal cooking. The cook to be "ready at timer" has been accurate to 30seconds-1mins. Be sure to clean it after every use because it does get messy depending on what you cook.
Summary: I love this rice cooker. The only downside is that it is made in China and not Japan (the larger sizes ones are). But overall, lightweight, easy to carry around and great for a 2 people household. Easy to use and always cooks rice perfectly!
Summary: I had a sanyo rice cooker before I bought this Zojirushi one. Apparently, the rice cooked by Zojirushi tastes much better. I love its "delay" function which means I can book the time at night before I go to bed and then have a bowl of hot congee in the morning when I get up. Or I can set the time and then go to pick up my kid, and when we back maybe a hour later after playing at playground, the rice is ready, I just need to quickly pan-fry something I have already...
