Rice Cooker warmer 5 : better taste rice

Cooks the rice, does a good job of it, replaces my previous cooker which was also zoujirushi. Needed to pay a bit for customs – about £60 or something. The post office left me a note and i had to pay them online to release the package. Easy enough to do and it was what i was expecting to pay (you can calculate charges online in advance). The cooker is everything it claims to be. If you want really nice rice of course, you have to buy good grade rice in the first place. You can’t make a silk purse from a sow’s ear but it will cook any rice evenly and accurately to give the best possible results from what you have given it to work with. Timer function is handy, lets you set the slower cook option and have it ready for the evening. Wanted to get one of the ih cookers but was put off by the extra hike in price. No regrets with this purchase and i suspect the more expensive induction cookers would probably not produce results that i could actually notice a difference with.

This is the best of my kitchen gadgets and also the most expensive, but if you have the money and you enjoy well prepared rice, it’s really worth it. I have not tried the slow cooking function. In fact i have only tried the gaba function for brow rice (i use brown basmati, which you should not wash btw) and the rice is so delicious, trhat i have not cared to try the other functions. I preprogram it, which you can do 13 hours before you need the rice, and then i have the best fresh cooked rice everyday. The gaba function takes about 4 hours, but when preprogrammed it doesn’t matter, and as i’ve already said: it’s just the bestspeaking of cleaning it’s very easy. It’s almost only the pot itself, that has to be cleaned. My old and cheaper model was a lot more difficult to clean. The only thing i don’t like is the price.

Very good service by the japanese supplier.

I’ve been cooking various kinds of rice (indica, japonica) on the stove with a heavy pot for years and was happy with the results (i steamed the rice at the end, never scorched it, used just the right amount of water so that the grains were separate and fluffy, etc). After reading raving reviews of the zojirushi cookers on the us amazon website i decided to try one (from yumasia. Uk), namely the ns-yqs10 (the same as the one depicted and commented upon here even though the ref is different). I was more than ready to be sceptical but after just one try on the ‘umami’ setting with thai rice my husband and i were blown over. It seriously puts to shame all my previous attempts at rice cooking. It’s the difference between merely competent and expert cooking. The grains are tighter, more fragrant, drier, and this without being hard or unpleasantly separate. After that i tried nishiki rice and akitakomachi, this time using the sushi measurements but still the umami programme (more on this below), and the results were equally out of this world.

My father in law is a good cook he immediately noticed the difference of the taste of rice cooked by this product. He said the product itself looked beautifully good and the rice tasted much better. I paid roughly 55 quid for custom’s charging but overall it’s good value for money.
