Is Tiger a good rice cooker brand?
You have started searching for Japanese rice cookers and wondered:
- There are too many options to choose from!
- Which brand is best for my needs..? Tiger, Toshiba, Panasonic, Zojirushi..?
- I have decided on Tiger rice cooker but is Tiger a good rice cooker brand?
Tiger is one of the best Japanese rice cooker brands. Here are why:
A top class knowledge and expertise in the heat control technology.
Tiger corporation (then Kikuchi manufacturer) is a well-established company founded in 1923 (it celebrates 100-year anniversary in 2023!) with a long history of developing good quality rice cookers.
Tiger corporation was first in the industry to release an IH rice cooker which had a ceramic inner pot in 2006.*1
The Real Meaning Behind Tiger’s Brand Name
Tiger Corporation’s history started with glass vacuum bottles in 1923. It was thought that the glass vacuum bottles are fragile and breakable back then. Tiger Corporation decided on the animal logo “Tiger” to promote the strength of durability of the product.
Another reason is that the founder’s father was born in the year of the tiger. He named the company “Tiger” to show the gratitude for his father.*2

It is recommended to use the bowl or strainer to wash rice to preserve the inner pot. Read this article for more tips on how to preserve the inner pot for a longer time!!
It is not recommended to keep rice warm for more than 12-24 hours in a rice cooker. It is recommended to freeze cooked leftover rice to keep the freshness.
Make sure to wash/rinse rice before cooking to avoid the odor after cooking as the rice bran can be the cause for the odor.
In addition, improperly stored uncooked rice can be the cause for the odor after cooking. it is very important to store uncooked rice in proper temperature and place. It is recommended to store them in temperature below 15 °C with 70% humidity in a place not exposed to direct sunlight.
