Rice, every way you like it

The Zojirushi Induction Heating Pressure Rice Cooker and Warmer offers precise control for cooking rice.

Rice is nice--especially when it's made the way you like it. Sur La Table

When it comes to kitchen appliances, manufacturers tend to make two kinds: either a combination unit that can do multiple things, such as fry an egg while toasting bread, or a single unit that does only one thing, but all too often that thing is entirely unnecessary for a dedicated appliance. There is, however, a rarely seen but much appreciated third option: do one thing and do it very, very well.

The Zojirushi Induction Heating Pressure Rice Cooker and Warmer is one such appliance. Using not one but two cooking methods, the unit offers precise control with a variety of options. Using pressure as a means to elevate cooking temperature, the rice cooker transforms starch, resulting in softer and fluffier rice. By incorporating induction heating into the design, the appliance evenly distributes heat, which leads to shorter cooking times with more consistent results.

The pinpoint control offered by this rice cooker allows for a diversity of menu settings. The LCD control panel has a timer function, along with warming settings, but it's the amount of actual rice options that make this cooker shine. Users choose from several options that include: white (regular, softer, or harder), mixed, sushi, porridge, sweet, brown, GABA brown (a method, not a variety), quick, and rinse-free. No matter what type of rice you prefer, or even how you like it, this dedicated rice cooker has you covered.
