Rice Cooker Size Reference

If you need to make 3 cups of rice, it is better to pick the size 5 – 5.5 cups rice cooker for the best tasting rice.
Reason: It is said that the more space exists between the rice and the inner pan, it allows the grains of rice to move more naturally.

It is better to pick one size bigger.

Summary

This model is perfect for a family of 4. It is made in Japan and the top-of-the-line rice cooker by Panasonic.

If you are looking for a Made in Japan, multi-functional IH rice cooker, this is the one. It has everything needed to cook the delicious rice, 12 hour timer, top-of-the-liner inner pan, 5 layer IH technology, stylish and compact design. I meant EVERYHING.

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 12 Hour 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!).

Summary

The pressure IH rice cooker is the top-of-the-line rice cooker. If you are pursuing the best quality cooked rice, the pressure IH is the one for you.

The pressure IH brings out Umami, stickiness, and fluffiness of rice by increasing the pressure inside the rice cooker.

One of the reasons that Zojirushi is know for the best rice cooker manufacturer is because of their commitment to quality and pursuit of the best tasting rice.

The platinum infused nonstick inner cooking pan is the result of their passion to pursuit the best tasting rice.

The platinum coating lowers alkalinity in water and breaks down the protein on the surface of rice grain.

This allows water to penetrate into the core of rice grain and increase gelatinization, which make rice taste sweeter and stickier.

It is also worth noting the thickness of Zojirushi’s inner pan. This thickness of the inner pan enables the temperature to be kept at high.

The size 5.5, the timer option, and the simple cleaning instructions are perfect for a busy household (family of 4).

Summary

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!

Summary

The pressure IH rice cooker is the top-of-the-line rice cooker. If you are pursuing the best quality cooked rice, the pressure IH is the one for you.

The pressure IH brings out Umami, stickiness, and fluffiness of rice by increasing the pressure inside the rice cooker.

One of the reasons that Zojirushi is know for the best rice cooker manufacturer is because of their commitment to quality and pursuit of the best tasting rice.

The platinum infused nonstick inner cooking pan is the result of their passion to pursuit the best tasting rice.

The platinum coating lowers alkalinity in water and breaks down the protein on the surface of rice grain.

This allows water to penetrate into the core of rice grain and increase gelatinization, which make rice taste sweeter and stickier.

It is also worth noting the thickness of Zojirushi’s inner pan. This thickness of the inner pan enables the temperature to be kept at high.

The size 10, the timer option, and the simple cleaning instructions are perfect for a busy household (family of 6 or more).
