    Everyone I know who owns one of those fancy ones has had theirs for a decade or two. So as far as I can tell they last forever, so it might be worth it for that reason. However that could also just mean they were built well 20 years ago which could be completely untrue by now. I assume if they're still made in Japan that they are good to go.

      If you love rice, and especially short grain it is absolutely a worthwhile investment. The keep warm feature alone is worth buying one.

      The made in Japan zojirushi still last decades.

          Huh? Let me guess. You're one of those absolute 2 IQ morons that thinks the keep. Warm function is dangerous.

          I have one of those. Lol. Makes pretty good rice, but a donabe does it better.

    Definitely don't get a cheap rice cooker. You'd be much better off cooking on the stove.
    The Difference between the cheap and higher-end rice cookers mostly comes down to fuzzy logic, which auto adjusts cook time, as well as the placement of heating elements around the sides and top of the unit which help distribute more evenly.

    if you are buying a piece of shit, you are saving far more than $100

    i have been using both 40€ and 400€ ones and the difference is noticeable. the fancy ones are fancy for a reason, BUT a cheap shitty ones aren't worthless. the pots get worn down in a year and then you have to get a new one or learn to enjoy the taste of fried rice on the bottom (which is frankly pretty good if it doesn't burn). with the cheap ones i have noticed that you have to learn how the shitty thing works and how much water to use and time to give it when using particular types of rice. my cheap one cooks some kinds of rice almost perfectly but the moment i try to cook some other types it all goes to shit unless i have learned from past failures
    tl:dr: if money isn't an issue, a fancy one is far better but it might become a worthless kitchen appliance like a bread machine if you don't actually use it often. a cheap one is ok for some things if you are lazy and still allows you to throw in extra stuff to make a full meal in it

    I've got that exact rice cooker. It's good but it won't make you cum.
    It's definitely for it for me. Sometimes I wonder if I should have gotten a more high end model(this model is definitely a lower-mid tier one) But I don't regret it and I don't really feel fomo unless I see a video on youtube of someone with a really gucci one that cost 2x as much.
    But yeah. If you eat rice 2-3 times a week, it's 100% worth it. It's probably my most used small appliance outside of my Breville oven/air fryer combo.

    as long as it allows adjusting for time it is good enough. might take a try or two to find the suitable amount of time for different kinds of rice but after that it is worth the cost. really cheap ones don't allow for adjusting the time and work on some mystery logic only known to the designer

    I've had that rice cooker for a couple years now and love it. It get for making something quick and cheap. I buy 50lbs bags from my local Korea grocery store for like $30 and each lasts me 3 months. Well worth the purchase IMO

    I recently learned how to do it on the stovetop and I prefer that to my ricecooker

    I got one as a christmas present. It's a North American market model, so it has options for Porridge and Long Grain in addition to basic short grain and sushi settings.

    I'm extremely impressed so far. Makes perfect rice every time, keeps it perfect for hours. Tested Calrose, Jasmine, Basmati, and Koshikikari. It did an excellent job with all of them. Only downside is it takes an hour to cook long grain rice.

    I went from doing all my rice cooking in a pot to doing 80% of it with the rice cooker. I had a cheap rice cooker but I never used it because the quality was not satisfactory. The new one doesn't do a good job with making Spanish rice/Yellow rice/Pilaf, so its really only good for plain rice, but it is really good at it.

    I have a zojorushi for ten years now works great. The good ones range from $200 to $700 but the $200 is totally fine for most people.

    Not that anybody asked, but my rule of thumb is if you make rice once a month or more and aren't starving for storage space, invest in a rice cooker. If you make it less often or don't have the space, just make it in a pot. We're a make-it-in-a-pot household.

    It's worth it but mainly due to the reliability and the keep warm feature. Only buy Zojirushi rice cookers. Also, the reliability only confidently applies to the made in Japan models as far as I can tell.
    The keep warm feature will keep rice warm and fresh for days without drying it out whatsoever.
    The difference in taste might not be too tangible, it's just infinitely consistent, which is especially helpful for short grain rice. The rice will always be evenly cooked.
    In the end though you have to decide for yourself whether or not the price is justified for your use case.
