    I would not buy a brand name kitchen appliance on amazon. It's exactly the kind of thing that would be faked, and sold on amazon. Go to a real shop for that kind of stuff. Amazon is for stuff where it won't matter, like cleaning supplies, maid uniforms, charging cables, novelty colored raspberry pi enclosures, chokers, and thigh highs

        Times I've been sold fake shit on Amazon
        - Fake Darn Tough merino hiking socks
        - Fake US Cellular Galaxy S10 (wrong carrier, phones IMEI had been altered to make it look like it was a USC phone)
        - Fake Osprey Backpack
        - Name brand garden composter
        - Fake name brand coilovers
        - Chinese HPFP internals instead of name brand I ordered

        Some of them I sent back, some of them Amazon told me to frick off because "iT wAs A tHiRd PaRtY sElLeR tHatS bEtWeEn YoU aNd ThEm" in which case I just charged back the payment.

              This is true but their point is that that won't happen if you ensure that the product is shipped by Amazon and not a third party seller. That being said Amazon is still shit so I'm not defending them.

              Will Zojirushi's $100+ models make a difference I don't want to waste money

              If you can't comfortably afford it then it's not worth it, the difference in taste/texture won't blow you away but it's a nice quality of life. Unless you cook a lot of short grain rice, then it's worth it. The main advantage to them in my opinion is their keep warm function works amazingly well.

      Depends on how you like your rice. If you like it Korean-style (a bit drier, little clumping) get a Cuckoo. If you like it more Japanese/Chinese-style (a little wetter) get a Zojirushi.

        How "wet" (actually, sticky) your rice is depends on the rice cultivar, not the rice cooker. It's mainly the amyloectin content. Different nations have different favourite cultivars and sometimes species of rice.

          Just be aware that those models don't have the same features the new Japanese models do. They look the same, and they're priced high, but they're not the same.

          They use some of the marketing images that LOOK like the "fire dance" rice modes used on the Japanese market models, but the US support when asked said the US units do not use that technology.

          A bit scummy in my eyes, but the North American market has always been an after thought for Zoji.

          Normally, a pot will last at least five years even with sloppy handling.
          However, this occurred in this rice cooker because it used a pot with high thermal efficiency and increased the amount of heat given to the pot.
          However, this has now been improved.[...]

          ENBU-DAKI also had a three-year warranty on the pot when it was first released, but the newly released version has a five-year warranty.

          Incidentally, Hitachi has always had a six-year warranty on its pots and pans.

          Literally our last wall oven, installation and all, didn't cost this much (admittedly it wasn't a fancy steaming or convection model). Any of you that have a rice cooker compared it to just putting your rice in a dutch oven or fully clad stock pot with the same amount of liquid and just baking it lid on @ 250-350F in the oven for 45 minutes to an hour?

            multiple IH heating elements controlled by computer to mimic the kind of heat a fire would have on a traditional iron pot of rice. It also can change the internal pressure and adjust the cook time/heat for that particular batch.

            Most people don't care, but if you're japanese and eat rice every single day it makes a bit more sense to care.

          Anonymous

          The japanese ones only have moonrunes on them, so you need to be artistic to read it.

          The "fire dance" mode is basically they have a bunch of small induction heating zones that are powered on at some specific type of randomness to mimic the inconsistent heating you'd get from a real fire so that the rice cooker can try to replicate traditional iron pot rice cooked over a fire.

          I have no idea if it's worth it or not as I'm not gonna drop $900 to import one.

          So yeah, the new US ones are still newer by a generation than the other units, but they're just "regular" multi-zone induction heating with pressure cooking which puts them about a generation behind the current highest-end Japanese models.

            Just in case you aren't too familiar with what you're getting into, the 10 cup models typically have a 2 cup minimum for cooking. Might be a hassle if you're just cooking for yourself, but if you have use for that much rice every time you cook then it seems like a good deal, even if the fire dance thing is an upgrade (it realistically can't be THAT much of an upgrade imo, but nevertheless it sounds like an interesting concept).

        Rice cookers cook rice at less than half the specified capacity to achieve the best flavor.
        If 3 cups, use 1.5 cups; if 10 cups, use up to 5 cups.

    >scrapped coatings

    don't buy ricecooker or pot with non-stick coating. even when they don't wear/scrap off, they're cancerous. if you don't want shit to stick, just use some oil/ghee. and vinegar works too. for vinegar, you will still need to soak it some water for a few minutes for the dried up vinegar to work its acidic "magic" in unsticking rice and other burnt bits in a pot.

    Toshiba is not recommended among high-end Japanese rice cookers.
    Toshiba uses a method that removes as much air as possible to create a vacuum and increase pressure.
    Moreover, the rice lasts longer because it is vacuumed while being kept warm.

    However, after years of use, the vacuum function seems to deteriorate and air begins to enter.
    If you live in Japan, you can have it replaced or repaired, but if you live overseas, it is not so easy.

      This happens to all pressure cookers that use a vacuum. In the vast majority of cases it's simply a matter of replacing a silicone valve for $5 or less. I literally have a 35 year old pressure cooker from my mother in law on the stove right now.

    i bought a neuro fuzzy. Its literally a meme. The measurements dont add up so you need to trial and error it. The funniest part was when cooking rice in a pot made the rice 10x better than when i did it in the zojirushi.

      Did you not use the provided measuring cup...? It's not the same as a US measuring cup (it's equivalent to 3/4 cup). I've never once had to trial and error anything.

      Literally our last wall oven, installation and all, didn't cost this much (admittedly it wasn't a fancy steaming or convection model). Any of you that have a rice cooker compared it to just putting your rice in a dutch oven or fully clad stock pot with the same amount of liquid and just baking it lid on @ 250-350F in the oven for 45 minutes to an hour?

      You could probably cook better rice in a donabe, but thats besides the point of using a rice cooker in the first place which is convenience.

            And she still didn't use a rice cooker lmao.
            My dad tried to get her to, especially after my grandpa died, but she refused.

      The Aroma digital rice cooker as a very slightly less budget option, or literally any option with the little paddle on front (bonus if it has a keep warm). The latter works through an incredibly simple mechanism so I doubt quality matters much, they're pretty much all the same.

      No, that's way faster than most good rice cookers.

      The whole point of a Japanese rice cooker is to cook it as slowly and gently as possible basically.

      The highest-end japanese models without using a quick-cook rice is about 60-80 minutes.

      Is it a cheap one? You're supposed to let it rest ~10 minutes without lifting the lid after it finishes cooking, at least for ideal results. Otherwise that's normal for a cheap cooker.

    I've lived in Japan for 11 years, married to a Japanese woman for 13. Never had a rice cooker. It's completely unnecessary, even with 3 children.
    We use a pressure cooker pot. Cook 1-1.5kg of rice a day. Any left overs just throw in the fridge and microwave when you want it.
    Absolutely no need for anyone to own a rice cooker. Just use any pot, it works the exact same.

        I don't see the point of your reply. Everyone in my family is perfectly satisfied with the pressure cooker.

There is no "need" here, it is simply a wasted purchase.

      nope, im sure it's fine, but it's not perfect, it's basically impossible to get perfect rice on the stovetop from a regular pot since the top of the pot will be colder than the bottom, some of the rice will be more cooked and some less cooked.

      A rice cooker gives you much more consistent doneness throughout the entire batch of rice, from a single serving up to 10+.
