What are the differences between rice cookers?
Rice cookers use a variety of technologies to heat and cook rice. Conventional rice cookers are the most basic, with just a thermostat and a heating element. Micom, or micro-computerized models have programmed cooking "flows" to make adjustments to cooking time and temperature. IH models are also micom, but utilize induction heating technology to heat, instead of a electric heater. The to-of-the-line models apply pressure during cooking, for the ultimate cooking results.
No matter the technology, the principle is the same: we heat the rice perfectly to ensure a tasty, worry-free outcome. Read more about the various kinds of rice cookers below.
How do I cook rice in a rice cooker?
Although the details may vary slightly from model to model, the process of cooking rice in your Zojirushi rice cooker couldn’t be simpler.
Can I cook things besides rice in a rice cooker?
Absolutely! Your rice cooker is actually a versatile appliance for cooking a variety of grains and foods. Depending on the model, your Zojirushi can handle far more than simple white rice.
My rice didn’t turn out as I expected. What did I do wrong?
A Zojirushi rice cooker is as close as anyone can get to the ultimate in simple, one-touch rice cooking. But of course, there are some things we know that can still go wrong. Here are a few:
Convenient, Powerful Features
Zojirushi rice cookers are intelligent tools in the modern kitchen. Different types of rice and grains require different temperatures, timing, and sensors to cook perfectly. Our competitors can’t match the powerful features here. Not all models have all features. Please see our product page to compare models.
What does the rice cooker capacity mean?
The capacity indicated on all of our rice cookers are the maximum amount of raw short grain white rice that can be cooked, measured with the included rice measuring cup (approx. 3/4 standard U.S. cup). The maximum capacity for other types of rice (brown rice, long grain, etc.) will differ.
A 3 cup rice cooker is generally ideal for singles and couples. A 5.5 cup rice cooker generally works well for a family of 4, and a 10 cup rice cooker for larger families.
What comes with my rice cooker?
All Zojirushi rice cookers include rice measuring cup(s) and a spatula. Rice measuring cup capacity is approx. 6 oz. / 180mL.
Some models also include a spatula holder and rinse free measuring cup.
Some models include a steaming basket.
