Urgent SCSI "My wife thinks I am addicted to Amazon", Amazon
3 January 2015
Summary: This review will most likely get lost in the hundreds and hundreds of current reviews of this product but I feel that I owe it to the community to write another review. BLUF: This rice cooker will keep your rice warm and fresh up to 2-3 days. Your rice will not get soggy or dried like those other rice cookers out there. I am Asian and although, this racial statement as no merit in a review, I am identifying my race to established some credibility.
Summary: Sad that I left a review on the same item but another item listing on PRIME, I would like to give an UPDATE on my review. I start to regret getting this rice cooker. This is one of the cheapest Made in Japan rice cookers. It is not the easiest rice cooker to clean. First of all, the water gets around the inner bowl when the rice is ready, which is messy to clean. It didn't mention you MUST clean inside the removable lid each time after you make rice.
Summary: Having similar rice cookers in the past, we wanted the best with the capacity and it apears to be the one. It is easy to use and rice can be kept in it quite a while without comprominig the quality.
Excerpt: Our Zojirushi rice cooker is one of the best purchases we've ever made. We bought it about 10 years ago and we use it OFTEN! It still looks and performs like brand new. We usually cook white rice or brown rice and it is perfect every time. The brown rice does take extra time to cook though. The white rice takes about an hour to cook. But, I'm willing to wait if it comes out perfect every time. It also will keep it perfectly warm and tasty for about a day..
Excerpt: This rice cooker is so convenient and efficient! It has many settings -- a normal cook setting, a cook setting for mixed rice, a cook setting for porridge, and a quick cook setting. I really enjoy using the quick cook setting -- whenever I am running out of time, this setting is very convenient. Usually cooking normally will take about an hour's time, so sometimes, when I have to eat before then, quick cooking my rice will take only about 40 minutes.
Excerpt: Love this rice cooker! Very small footprint so it doens't take up too much counter space. The color is nice and the design is cute. It's pretty light weight, so it's easy for women to move it around the kitchen if you wish. There are a few functions, making rice versus congee versus steaming. I have only tried making rice so far. It's fast (relatively speaking) and it keeps the rice steaming when it's done.
Summary: the first time I used this rice cooker, it was amazing. however, after a light hand wash and countertop air-dry, the second use was a huge gelatinous mess. no matter how delicately I cleaned, re-cleaned this machine, leaked all over the counter. Trouble-shooting suggests the machine isn't clean enough, was dinged. I couldn't have been more gentle with this machine and it only lasted one use. An awfully expensive waste. I would not recommend this to anyone. Too delicate.
Summary: I purchased one of these rice cookers, with a fuzzy logic board. It contains a battery, not replaceable by the consumer. The battery will last about 3 years, which means it will have to be replaced. Although I like cookers with programs, in my opinion the price is too high for something that needs repair after 3 years.
