This model is perfect for a family of 6 +. It is made in Japan, high-end, quality rice cooker.

Zojirushi is one of the most popular brand for the rice cooker in Japan. The company was founded in 1918 and it has obtained top market share in the industry.

The IH (Induction Heating) rice cooker was invented in 1988 and uses the IH source to cook rice. It can cook rice more evenly and keep rice warm for a longer period of time without being dried out thanks to the induction heating source compared to the micom rice cooker. Because of this advanced heating function, hence the price tag is higher for the IH rice cooker.

If you are making more than 3 cups of rice, the IH rice cooker is better option as the micom (microcomputer) rice cooker is not good for making a large batch of rice due to the location of the heating source.

The delay timer function is great for a busy household (you can set the timer in the morning and it will be ready by the time you get home!).

The accessories include the rice scooper holder which can be attached to the rice cooker. It is a nice added bonus!
