Summary: Perfect rice always. As you prepare a meal for any size group, just set up your NS-ZCC18 first for rice and casually prepare any kind of meal and watch your guests or family rave about the best rice they ever had, ever. Remember, put the rice on first, if by chance it is done before everything else, it will still be the best. The next day too! And the next and the next, etc. If it cooked a bit faster, I would give it 6 stars.
Summary: I did a ton of research before buying a quality rice cooker and I'm glad I did. This model along with other Zojirushi's always came up on top of many review lists I read online. We've had it for a few months now and it hasn't disappointed yet. It does take a little longer to cook rice when compared to the Salton we had before, but there is no comparison on the final product. The Zojirushi ALWAYS cooks the rice perfectly! *Provided you choose the correct setting*.
Summary: After using this cooker for 3 years, I am sure this is the best rice cooker I have used. All the functions are still working properly. The inner container is still shining, not like other cheaper ones. I love it, and will definitely recommend to others.
Summary: I like it because it has more features. Also the 'pot' inside is better than what I used to have, not aluminum. The only thing I noticed is that with regular white rice I have to add an additional cup of water to make it soft. For example for 3 cups of rice I put 5 cups of water. Maybe it is the type of rice.
