    The Zojirushi Home Bakery Supreme is an up-to-the-minute bread maker that combines a range of automatic controls with easily tailored options. Its 10 cycles are designed for making everything from wheat bread to cinnamon rolls and can also be put to work for non-bread items likes cakes, fruit jam, and homemade meatloaf. Versatile controls let you use the dough-only function or make a loaf from start to finish, and handy programming options include a sourdough starter, a 2-hour quick-baking cycle, and three crust settings. The timer allows you to set all controls up to 13 hours ahead, and three memory settings store your most-used recipes.

    Built with a durable plastic body, the Home Bakery Supreme has many structural plusses, including twin kneading paddles, a broad viewing window, and an angled control panel. A welcome alternative to the cylinder-shaped bread maker pans, the nonstick baking pan here turns out traditionally shaped, 2-pound loaves. Streamlined and manageable, the unit measures 16-3/4 by 12 by 8-1/2 inches and comes with a detailed manual, a recipe booklet, and a how-to video. Zojirushi includes a limited one-year warranty.--Emily Bedard ... Read more

    1-0 out of 5 stars nightmare of a gift
    I have one of these machines and have had no problems with it. HOWEVER, I sent my 86 year old father one for his birthday (he had used a Panasonic for 11 years but it gave up the ghost! and he bakes bread like three times a week!). Anyway, he has done nothing but turn out "bricks" with this machine. Trying to help him over the phone has been frustrating, especially because we live 1,200 miles apart. Would I give this Zo bread machine as a gift again? NO! NO! NO! NO! NO!

    1-0 out of 5 stars I'm so frustrated!
    I can't believe all the glowing reports I've read about the Zojirushi breadmaker model BBCC-V20. I have yet to make a good loaf of bread. Today I tried using an expensive mix from the store where we bought the machine. It is a flop! I do like using it for mixing and rising and then removing the dough to finish the bread outside the machine. My husband has talked with the sales rep, but her suggestions have not helped.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Bread Machine!
    Just received my Zo X20 after using a West Bend bread machine (it died from overuse) for 5 years. I am delighted with the horizontal loaves and beautiful texture. The bread pan releases the loaf easily and I can't imagine having trouble with warping as the pan is quite substantial. I would like more recipes in the instruction manual but should be able to find some online. I'm surprised some people have had a bad experience with the Zo as my family and I have been very pleased.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your time, money or ingredients!
    If you have reached this page looking for a reference to the Zojirushi, here is my delima: I purchased this machine and wish I hadn't.
    It looks and seems like it would be a good purchase, but when I got it home and tried baking several loaves, they were hard as a rock and wouldn't release from the pan. I called the company and they sent me new blades. That helped with turning the loaves out, but they were not eatable. The crust was very hard and the bread was so terrible, I gave it to the birds. I kept calling the company and they finally said to contact the sender and get my money back....thank goodness, I returned it and by recommendation of one of the South Beach forums, was advised to purchase the Breadman Ultimate. I hope this saves whoever reads this some time and aggrivation! Happy Shopping!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect Toast
    The journey to a perfect piece of toast begins with a ZO cx20. Out of the box, with recipes from the manual, one can be an instant able baker. The ZO turns out bread with a wonderful texture, nicely crusted outside with a tender interior. Perfect with a dab of butter when hot out of the loaf pan; great toasted with jam or cinnamon sugar the next morning. Not being of the baker persuasion, I purchased the Zo - after much web research - following the traumatic closing of our neighborhood Jewish bakery. I have experimented conservatively beyond the supplied recipes and have not been disappointed. The ZO's cost may seem steep to some at first, but in our house we are now eating better, but less, bread. Going from three modest to two large loaves a week, I figure the break-even (3x$2.50 purchase v. 2x$1.25 ingredients) will be less than a year. In about 10 minutes from this writing we will be enjoying just-baked slabs of white/wheat bread with good strong coffee. The prefect way to start a Saturday morning! ... Read more


    2. Zojirushi EC-BD15 Fresh Brew Thermal Carafe Coffee Maker

    Amazon.com Review

    Lots of folks dislike the burnt flavor that coffee gets when it sits in a glass pot over a heating element. To avoid this, coffee shops often brew right into large thermal pots to keep the coffee warm without it becoming overcooked. The Zojirushi Fresh Brew does that, too, but in home-sized batches. It looks great, too, with a glossy black body and stainless steel carafe and brew basket.

    To brew, lift the lid and swing the water outlet spout to one side while the filter is being loaded; the spout will return to its proper position when the lid is closed. A small red ball in the water gauge makes it extra simple to read. And an electronic clock module also serves as a timer that will start the brewer at a specified time. The carafe's lid is designed to be on during brewing, with a small cap to help keep the heat in after it's ready. The Fresh Brew also has a pause-and-serve function that stops the flow for 30 seconds while a cup of coffee is served.

    To clean the brewer unit, use a solution of white vinegar and water, following the instructions in the accompanying booklet. The unit is not immersible. The exterior can be wiped with a damp soft rag; do not use abrasives or scouring pads. The filter reservoir is removable; clean with warm soapy water and rinse thoroughly. The coffee brewer measures 15 by 12 by 9 inches (includes carafe handle when unit is completely assembled), and it uses #3 cone-shaped disposable paper filters. The Fresh Brew comes with a detailed instruction booklet. Zojirushi guarantees its products with a one-year limited warranty. --Garland Withers ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent
    This makes very good coffee and keeps it hot for several hours. A quality product.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Coffee Maker
    The design of the carafe on this maker is good; the mouth is a bit wider than most, but you will still need a bottle brush to really clean it. There is even a secondary carafe lid to prevent air from entering the carafe after you have brewed a pot.

    I bought mine at Costco for less than Amazon, and the latest revision of this model (Model EC-BD15BA) states that you can use the readily available #4 cone filters. I think Zojirushi realized that #4 filters are easily found for the American market.

    The unit is easy to program for timed brewing, and the water level indicator is easy to read.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Another quality Zoji product - just what I was looking for!
    I was looking for a coffee maker with a large capacity, unbreakable carafe, auto-shut-off, pause-and-serve, and a programmable timer. I found everything I wanted
    with this Zoji.

    It has a stylish, brushed stainless carafe that stays cool to the touch and has no breakable glass liner like some carafes have. The base has an easy to read water-level display, with markings up to 10 cups, but it has a larger capacity than my old 10 cup Braun. It also has a cute little elephant on it!

    The 1.5 liters works out to approx. 51 ounces, or just over 6 (8-ounce) cups. My old "10 cup" coffee maker held about 5 8-ounce cups. I never have quite figured out what counts as a "cup" in coffee terms, but it seems to vary between 4 and 6 ounces.

    This is a pretty tall (15 inches) coffee maker, and you have to lift the lid to add the coffee and the water. Since steam comes out of the top, I pull it out from under the cabinet when it's running. If you have shallow counters, this could be a little tricky.

    The only down side, in my opinion, is that it uses the hard-to-find #3 filters. I've gotten around it by cutting about 1 inch off the top of my #4s. I also had a little trouble getting the lid off the carafe when I screwed it on too tight - I had to put a towel over it to get a good grip. Those minor details aren't enough to cost it a star, though.

    I'm not sure how long coffee stays hot in this carafe, because we drink so much coffee around here it doesn't stay in there very long. I did sleep in one morning, though, and the coffee that was automatically made at 6:15 was still hot at 7:30.

    Overall, I am extremely happy with this coffee maker. I have hot coffee ready for me whenever I get up in the morning, and I never have to wonder whether I forgot to shut it off when I leave the house. ... Read more

    "Micom" means this sleek rice cooker is computer-controlled and ultra high-tech, from its spherical, nonstick pan to its "surround heating" system to its LCD clock and timer. (Program the cooker in the morning and have hot rice available immediately after work.) It not only cooks up to 3 cups of dry rice, but offers a choice ofwhite/brown, mixed, sweet, and porridge settings. A quick-cooking option cuts time by 10 minutes. Rice is automatically kept at warm for hours, and a reheat feature brings it back to serving temperature. Instructions and a cooking chart explain everything. At 10-3/4 by 8-1/2 by 8 inches, it's remarkably compact and also lightweight. Transport it by its handle. Cord retracts for storage. --Fred Brack ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Worth Every Dollar
    This rice cooker works great and is very easy to use and clean. Out of the box, you plug it in (retractable cord), set the clock, use the menu button to select which type of rice you're making, use the measuring cup for your rice, fill the water corresponding to the number of cups of rice. Hit the "cooking" button and you're off.

    The rice comes out beautifully, and after you fluff it, you can keep it in the cooker where it will stay nice and warm until you're ready to serve.

    On an aesthetic level, this is a wonderfully designed (and compact) kitchen accessory.

    This smaller model is perfect for 2 people. We usually make around 4 bowls of rice. If you need to make a larger amount you'll want to get the larger capacity model.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome little rice cooker!
    This is a really great little rice cooker. It [costs a little more]... but it is worth the money.
    I bought it several months ago, and it proved its worth within a week. It cooks rice really well. I love making hot cereal in it because I can set the timer so that the cereal will be done (and very fluffy) when I wake up in the morning.
    Of course, the rice can't compare to Indian/Asian restaurant rice, but it tastes really good to me. I often eat it with nothing else.
    The countdown function (10 minutes til done and so forth) and the alert are also very convenient features.
    The reviewer who mentioned that it is a little hard to clean because rice gets gunked up in the back of the lid and in the drain is right, but it is not impossible to clean it all up. Just don't put milk in the cooker. That's bad news.
    It's true that the English translation in the manual is sometimes off, but I think if you didn't read the manual, it is pretty self explanatory and easy to use.
    This definitely would be too small for a family, but as I live by myself, it makes just the right amount of rice/cereal.
    One other thing: the retractable cord stopped retracting within a month, but I don't find that too big a deal, just a little disappointing. As long as it keeps cooking.
    All in all, I am happy with this purchase and would recommend it. I use very nearly every day.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Response to Some Other Reviews
    This is NOT intended as a full review of this machine; I have only owned it for one day and obviously cannot comment on reliability and many other important issues.

    The only reason I decided to post this is that I almost did not buy this rice cooker because of some comments that are present repeatedly in earlier reviews, which are perhaps either overstated or not applicable to many potential buyers.

    One common complaint is that the rice maker won't make enough rice and you need a larger one. This depends entirely on your circumstances. I am an athletic 50 year old male and eat a huge amount of food for dinner each evening. The most dried rice product (e.g. when cooked) I could conceivably ever eat is 1.25 to 1.5 cups, the cooked result of which is obviously much larger. Two very hungry adults would have trouble consuming all the rice this thing can make in one sitting. And why would you use the rice for leftovers if making rice in a rice cooker is so easy and the rice itself is dirt cheap? I used a similarly sized (but very basic) 3-cup National (Panasonic) rice cooker for about 10 years and never used close to the capacity of that cooker. So, for 1 or 2 people this thing makes a fully sufficient quantity, however for a family you would probably want a larger model.

    As to quality of the rice produced, there is no comparison between what this Zojirushi makes and what I get out of the Panasonic. The Panasonic produces dry rice that is burned at the bottom. This cooker, the Zojirushi, produces moist rice in easily separated grains that are not burned at all, anywhere. I found the timing function to be convenient.

    Other reviewers have stated that this model has fuzzy logic; I don't think that is correct. You have to buy a more expensive rice cooker from Zojirushi to get that feature. Personally, I'm only concerned about the results, not how they were made, so I'm happy with this and don't miss fuzzy logic.

    Using white rice, clean up took about 1 minute or less.

    You will need to read other reviews for the kinds of insights you can get only from longer term ownership.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Perfect for 2 people, limited counter space
    This is a nice compact size, esp if you have limited counter space. Perfect for two people, was also fine when we had 2 friends over for dinner. If you cook 2.5 cups of rice, it is perfect for 4-5 people. I always fluff in the bowl or plate I serve on to. If you are not picky about "fluffing", it is really no big deal if you can't fluff in the cooker. Not having any spoon holder is a pain. Love the timer feature. Makes perfect jook or rice porridge, as well as tapioca/taro dessert. We cook rice everyday so this was a nice change from using our 15 year old steamer style pot.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Different, but still good
    I grew up with one button rice cookers. The kind I liked the best was one where you would put water on the outside of the rice pot as well as in the inside of the pot with the rice and then press the button. I don't think they make those anymore. Nowadays you have to keep the outside of the pot dry. Kinda a pain after you got it wet washing the rice.

    Back when I was growing up we made delicious rice, rice porridge, steamed sausage over rice, steamed chicken and vegetables in broth, bean soup, etc. using the simple one button rice cooker. The trick for some of the dishes is to run the cook cyle twice to cook longer.

    I mention all this to explain why just having a rice cooker cooking different things doesn't totally impress me. I'm used to having one that is simple to use and versatile.

    With this background, I was a little bit disappointed in the ZAC10 rice cooker although I still think it is an excellent product.

    This neuro fuzzy is CUTE. And it makes DELICIOUS oatmeal. It also makes cheaper rice taste better. The keep warm feature works perfectly -- no making a crust. I use the timer feature for oatmeal in the morning - very nice to have.

    But it is also awfully SLOW. I'm used to the rice cooker cooking faster than the stovetop method but this one is just as slow if not slower. For 1 small cup of rice it takes 40+ minutes. The machine I grew up with took 20 minutes. Even the quick cook feature on this machine takes 30 minutes.

    Theoretically you can't use this as a steamer according to the Ultimate Rice Cooker cookbook I also bought. That's too bad since I am used to steaming things in a rice cooker. I will play around with it though and see if that's really the case.

    I am still torn about whether to get this for my motherinlaw this Xmas. She loves oatmeal but cooked in milk so the timer feature won't help her. But still, it makes delicious oatmeal without her having to stand and stir. And it keeps it warm for a long time. What's making me hesitate is that she doesn't eat rice that often and the buttons in the front are rather daunting. (It really isn't as complicated as it looks though) Also the manual has no good recipes. It doesn't even tell you if you can make oatmeal with milk or not in it. (You can.) On the web they have some and if I were to get this for her I would definitely print out some recipes to go with it. This would be an expensive gift not to be used.

    If you eat rice alot or like rice, oatmeal, porridge, that kind of thing... a rice cooker is a must and this one is a great one. Just realize that if you're use to a one button rice cooker you'll be giving up simplicity.

    FOLLOW-UP:
    I have demoted this from a FIVE star to a FOUR star product. It still makes wonderful rice but disappointingly it doesn't handle oatmeal cooked in milk (1% fat). I've tried it three times now, two times on porridge cycle and this thing made a COLOSSAL MESS. Hubby said it's like a baby puked all over it, inside and out. The thing spewed oatmeal which stuck and dried everywhere (I got to it two hours after it went on keep-warm). Even though the inner part of the lid pops out, it still took nearly an hour to clean up the nooks and crannies of the thing. I definitely suggest watching it if you cook oatmeal with milk and maybe even opening it up several times to release the steam. Better yet, do it on the stovetop. Too bad because the oatmeal still left in the pot that it didn't spew out tasted fantastic.

    To be fair to the recipe, I should say I used quick cook oats (1 minute type) instead of the steel cut slow cook type oatmeal. Maybe that made a difference. BUt if so, too bad because I still have a lot of the other kind of oatmeal to use up.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Worth it
    We hestitated for a while because of the price. But once we took the plunge and tried it out, we couldn't be happier. In the past, we've had both the cheap, one-button type and the microchip type, and if you have rice 2-3 times a week, you definitely want to go with the better model. (We pitched the cheap model immediately; the rice turned out part crusty, part mushy, part burnt.) The Zojirushi is an improvement on our previous microchip model because 1. it's easier to clean, with the lid-liner not accumulating scum and the inner pot having a rounded bottom, which is easier wipe clean 2. it has no "moisture catcher" to clean out 3. the inside pot has cool handles to lift out 4. there is a place to put the rice paddle (important!) 5. the rice paddle has nubs on it, with prevents rice from sticking to it. And, of course, it cooks brown rice very well! We're waiting to try the porridge setting - yum. We're completely happy with our purchase and wondered why we hesitated. (NB, All Zojirushi products we've tried have been superb, despite their generally higher prices.)

    2-0 out of 5 stars Problems with altitude
    I have purchased three NS-ZAC10 cookers within the last year. Two are being used by daughters living near sea level. They work perfectly. I use mine mostly at an altitude of 3,000ft and, at times, at an altitude of 7,500ft. The cooker works only adequately at 3,000 ft and poorly at the higher altitude.

    I suspect something is wrong with the Fuzzi Logic programming, which should be able to sense the altitude by measuring the boiling point of water and extend cooking times accordingly. Fuzzi Logic is an incremental type of mathematical set theory in which the next step depends upon the success of the previous step. Not being able to cope with higher altitudes suggest a fault with the coding. And it spoils the general usefulness of the cooker.

    Personally, I would welcome information from Zojirushi regarding how to adapt the NS-ZAC10 to high altitude cooking --- if indeed that is possible. I have no idea how to contact them. They don't appear to maintain a website.

    Unless you live at sea level, don't waste your money. Buy a simple, inexpensive On/Off rice cooker where you can compensate for altitude by adding more liquid and extending the cooking time.

    On the other hand, if you live near sea level, this cooker works well.

    For folks who eat rice on a daily--or even weekly--basis, this rice cooker has a unique fuzzy-logic microchip for advanced programming and a spherical heating system that cooks on all sides of the inner pan and makes perfect rice every time. The unit cooks up to 10 cups (enough to feed a crowd of 10 or more people) of a variety of rices--white, brown, sweet, and porridge--to use in dishes such as sushi, paella, stir-fries, or curries. The cooker has settings to accommodate your preference for harder or softer rice and even has a setting for prewashed rice. The LCD screen is easy to read and the push-button controls are simple to program once you've mastered them. A programmable timer allows you to set your cooking time without worry that rice will burn or get overcooked--and the start and complete time of your cooking cycle signals with a pleasant melody rather than a jarring beep (although you can choose a beep if you prefer it). Another excellent option is the ability to keep rice warm for up to 12 hours after cooking is complete, so you can cook before work and have warm rice at dinner. The Extended Keep Warm function warms rice for up to 8 hours at a lower temperature and reduces the chance of rice drying out or becoming discolored or odorous. Both the inner pan and inner lid detach from the unit for thorough cleaning. The rice cooker has a plastic handle for transporting it from cabinet to counter and a retractable cord for easy storage. The appliance comes with two measuring cups, a spatula, and a spatula holder and is covered by a limited one-year warranty. --Cristina Vaamonde ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Essential Kitchen Appliance
    This is an amazing machine. Not only does it cook a variety of rices to perfection, but it does an even better job on whole grains and beans. It also works well for cooking one pot meals. My favorite use for the cooker is for breakast, the porridge cycle produces fantastic rice porridge as well as splendid oatmeal. Using the timer function we can put our contents in before leaving for work and dinner is ready when we get home. We use it every day and it is a total breeze to operate and cleanup is very easy. The investment seems like a lot before you buy it, but after a couple of months it seems like a ....

    5-0 out of 5 stars This is the best rice cooker i've owned!
    You can say goodbye to burnt rice once you start using this machine. Rice indeed tastes better!

    Warts: it cooks slower than previous rice cookers i've owned. even in its "quick cooking" setting it still takes more than half an hour to cook 3 cups of regular white rice. another thing is its buttons. they're too hard to push...it probably gets easier in time, though.

    despite the warts, i still love this rice cooker!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Worth every cent
    This is one of my favorite gadgets and can not live without items. I do a lot of cooking and have had this machine for about 1 year. When it is rice time (and i tend to cook a lot of it since I bought this machine), I set the machine and by the time the rest of the dinner is ready, the rice is cooked and ready to eat without worrying about it. I can concentrate on the items on the menu. As you can tell, my meals always include several items. For a busy person, this is worth every penny of it. There is a battery in the machine which will eventually need to be replaced, but I called the company and they said if you keep the machine plugged in, the battery should last at least 6 years or more.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Long cook time, but great rice! Easy to clean too.
    I purchased this cooker as a present for myself this past Christmas, and boy was this ever a great gift! My husband is a rice junkie, and this makes good rice every time.

    On the directions/manual:
    It took me a little bit to read through the directions; they are a bit hard to follow. I found that the continuous interspersing of multiple languages (and some peculiar English - they liked the phrase "tasty rice" to describe well-cooked rice) to be a bit troublesome for continuity. I was really unsure of cooking the first time, but after two trial batches, I found cooking to be a breeze.

    On cleaning:
    One (low-star recommendation) reviewer said about the lid not coming off to clean properly; this is not the case. Granted the lid is not non-stick like the pan, but I can't say that I ever had more than the littlest bit of rice starch show up between the inner lid and the outer cover. The inner lid is fully removable, and just needs wiped when warm to fully clean. To clean the pan, I found that removing all excess rice at the end of the meal, and then leaving the pan sit open until the next morning makes all the rest of the rice starch dry up. It only then takes me about 3 minutes to clean the cooking bowl, as well as the remainder of the cooker.

    On cooking length:
    It takes 35-48 minutes to cook regular basmati rice. This seems like a rather long time, but since preparation is so quick, it isn't that much of a nuisance. Rather it's just an inconvenience if you want to eat soon (and you probably will, the rice really is GOOD)!

    Extras:
    I find that this cooker is a perfect traveler for family functions as well. I normally make chili for family gatherings (slow cooker), and making if I make rice in this sucker before I leave, I just have to unplug it, and if the cover stays closed, I have found the rice to still be pleasantly warm up to 3 or 4 hours after it was unplugged.

    Hope this helps!

    4-0 out of 5 stars This is a great machine
    I was a bit hesitant to spend so much on a rice cooker. From my 20+ years of making white rice almost daily, a rice cooker is a rice cooker. After using this machine everyday for 2 months, I find it to be no different from the many others I had used of similar style (ie a non-removable outer lid and a removable inner lid), except that it has something I desperately in need of --- a timer. The quality of the cooked rice is the same, though it takes almost twice as long to cook and reheat as other cookers. As another reviewer mentioned, I too don't particularly care for the condensation dripping, but I did not find the gross build-up. I find this cooker to be more bulky than my previous 10-cup cooker. However, because of the timer, I am very happy with this machine. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Good rice for average rice eaters
    We eat rice often. We've had a Faberware cooker for years that finaly died. Wouldn't get another as it cooked the rice unevenly with 'burned spots'. The Zojirushi costs lots more, but is well worth it. This unit cooks all of the rice perfectly every time. We like the size, it delivers 2 to 5 cups of cooked rice, and it delivers the same high quality rice for any batch size.

    I wish we could leave it pluged in, but there is no on/off switch. The overall quality seams very good, what you would expect from a [price] machine.

    If you eat rice frequently, and enjoy high quality food, this is an excellent machine and is well worth the cash.

    5-0 out of 5 stars You won't know how you ever cooked rice without it!
    For years I've wished that I could cook "perfect rice". This little "Zo" has made it possible for me to prepare perfect Sushi-style rice (sumptuously sticky and moist) as well as the perfect cafeteria-style rice (no two grains stick together, and the rice is firm, almost al dente). And the absolute best feature is the impossibly non-stick surface of the cooking pot. Every grain of rice falls out of the pot! Cleaning my previous rice cooker was so repulsive and difficult that I soon stopped using it. You can use a damp paper towel and clear water to clean this Zo!!

    The recipe is simple -- measure rice, rinse, add water, soak, press the button, let it steam for 15 minutes after the cook cycle has finished, then stir to release the trapped excess steam. PERFECT! The Zojirushi will keep your rice warm for hours, but who can wait that long to eat it? Not me!

    If you want to avoid the very tiny bit of browned rice on the bottom, the secret seems to be rinsing the rice for a ridiculous amount of time, at least 5 full minutes.

    I heartily recommend this item.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Rice Without Pain
    I purchased this unit for a rice-eating roommate after having to scrape the results of a bad attempt from the bottom of a pan. She had a decent system, but not decent enough to get a truly consistent result. I thought this would be a "use it until the charm wore off" appliance (to be placed next to the ice cream maker).

    It felt wonderful to be wrong. We enjoy perfect rice at least twice a week...more if we have some leftovers and need a starch. She's made just about every type of rice (including wild rices and pilafs).

    Clean-up of the rice container is a no-stick snap...but there are nooks and crannies around the rim/seal of the top.

    My roommate just interjected when asked for her comment, "What more could you want - PERFECT RICE".

    Enjoy!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Makes very good rice
    I had a problem with delivery where the first unit arrived with a bashed in product box, and the second arrived without even being double boxed. However, I'm happy with the product, and it makes good rice, and the keep warm function works well too.

    2-0 out of 5 stars I expected something easier to use/ = to clean
    The included "Operating Instructions" are a joke and practically useless.
    It does cook absolutely perfect rice,
    BUT cleaning is a pain:

    1) The inner pan has a rolled rim which catches and retains water when washing it. Don't put the pan back in the cooker unless you are sure that there is no trapped water left in the rim for dripping into the main body and onto the cooking plate.
    2) One needs to also clean the dew collector and the steam vent apart from wiping down the inner main body rim from the liquid that does not reach the dew collector. Instructions tell to not remove the reverse stopper valve when cleaning the vent assembly: I did not intend to remove this stopper valve - it just fell out under a gentle stream of warm water from my faucet...Don't loose it - down the drain!
    3) The stationary lid needs wiping + cleaning ASAP, otherwise one collects additional grime [See 4)].
    4) Be aware that the area between the steam vent + the slots in the lid does trap really nasty stuff you can't see nor reach easily when cleaning. Pay attention to these hard to reach nooks and crannies....
    5) It's easy to miss the moment when the unit switches to the "keep warm" feature, - the click is barely audible, unless you stand next to it. As the recommended 15 minutes of steaming are essential for a good result, it is disappointing that you need to keep watching the unit visually for light changes. Am I asking for too much if I'd prefer a louder click or even a ring?

    Saving grace: It does produce the most delicious and perfect rice.
    My next rice cooker will again be a "simple" version with a glass lid + less extra parts to clean. ... Read more

    This rice cooker cooks up to 5-1/2 cups (enough to feed five to ten people or more) of a variety of rices--white, sweet, porridge, and mixed--for accompanying stir-fries, stuffing peppers, or rolling sushi. The LCD screen is easy to read and the push-button controls are simple to program once you’ve mastered them. After loading your rice and water into the inner pan and choosing the type of rice you are making from the menu, the microcomputerized "Fuzzy logic" temperature control system calculates the exact cooking time (usually between 45 and 70 minutes) and programs it for you. The Fuzzy microchip combined with the unit’s spherical heating system, which cooks on all sides of the inner pan, ensure perfect rice every time without burning or overcooking. You can also set the timer manually in 30-minute increments for cooking times of up to 13 hours. When cooking is complete, the cooker beeps eight times and automatically shifts into a Keep Warm mode, which keeps rice warm for up to 12 hours after cooking is complete. An Extended Keep Warm function warms rice for up to 8 hours at a lower temperature and reduces the chance of rice drying out or becoming discolored or odorous. If rice is still not eaten by then, there is another opportunity to give it a warmup of between 5 and 15 minutes using the Reheat key.

    The inner pan has a nonstick coating for easy cleaning and the lid’s stainless-steel underside also wipes clean much effort. The rice cooker has a plastic handle for transporting it from cabinet to counter and a retractable cord for easy storage.

    Maybe I am doing something wrong, but I've purchased 2 in the last 2 months and they both died - I don't know how it happened but water got in the LCD display and fried it. Makes great rice but at this rate, I'd spend $1,500 a year on rice cooking. Forget it!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Miracles in Technology - Perfect Rice
    I purchased this machine from a local cooking supply shop, after doing some online research. The person who sold it to me told me that it was useful for little more than making really good rice. As I found out from research - that is simply not true. 'The Ultimate Rice Cooker Cookbook' by Beth Hensperger and Julie Kaufmann (ISBN 1-55832-202-7) gives you excellent recipes that are wonderfullly suited to this device. It's the manual you wish you would have gotten with this device.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Luxury "Sushi" rice cooker smarter than some people!
    Having live in Hawaii for several years -where excellent rice is the norm (even at McDonalds)- I feel confident that most finicky rice lovers will be pleased with this cooker. If your favorite rice is dry, instant, or like Uncle B's- don't get it- mainly because this cooker excels at creating moist somewhat sticky rice that can be scooped like ice-cream (in fact- in Hawaii- they will ask if you want "two scoops rice"--but then again they love Spam (ugh!))

    Pros: Excellent rice just right for two. No burnt rice on the bottom. Stay warm feature is great. Easy to use once you figure out the manual. Fun good looking high-tech gadget! Makes other visiting cooks really jealous. Well made (makes other rice cookers look like pathetic pieces of low end junk!). Makes porridge- which I have yet to try. Has a limited countdown timer. A cross-cultural and intellectual experience too.

    Cons: Rather large and bulky. Hard to figure out how to work it, since the manual was probably translated poorly form Japanese and refers to 2 models. My DVD player is far easier to "figure-out" and I have an IQ of 166! Rather small to cook other veges with the rice since it is not only small, but they warn you not to cook anything but rice--I guess it freaks out the fuzzy logic. The manual is rather Obsessive-compulsive and claims that you should treat the inner bowl with tender loving care- don't even wash your rice in it, for it may scratch it! I prefer to live dangerously and not only clean my rice in it, but I sometimes sin and add non-rice objects (like carrots).

    Conclusion: High Tech Excellent "Sushi-type" rice maker- but rather pricey and limited to rice. Definitely NOT for rice pilaf. Obtuse manual.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Really, really good rice.
    I've made rice regularly for many years, using a steamer or using the stove. I thought I knew what well-cooked rice was. But when I eventually bought this machine, I learned what I had been missing. We are talking about wonderful texture and flavor. Yum.

    The machine is very simple to operate (basically you push one button), and it'll keep your rice warm for many hours with no change in the texture, which seems remarkable to me. You can just leave it on, almost indefinitely, rather than putting your rice away and reheating it later. This is surprisingly convenient if you eat rice more than once a day.

    However, you have to rinse the rice quite well or it will come out sticky. In addition, the machine doesn't come with instructions for brown rice, so I'm still figuring out the right method for that.

    Also, the controls are confusing and hard to use -- an amazing achievement for such a simple machine. I could not make it any more confusing if I tried!!

    My Taiwanese friend tells me that in most of her friends' households there, a machine like this is in use all day, every day. It's that useful -- assuming you eat rice all the time.

    However, if you eat rice only occasionally, this machine is overkill. For a small fraction of the price you can get a Black & Decker Handy Steamer, which makes good rice (though not as good as this) and is just as easy to use and more versatile. So do you really, honestly, want a single-purpose rice machine, considering the cost and the space to store it? If you really do, this one's a nice choice. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Perfect Rice, Annoying Sounds
    Why do the Japanese insist on making inanimate objects sing?

    Even if I didn't have a 1-year old, I would find the aural feedback on this device wholly unnecessary. Start cooking, and you get serenaded by an electronic melody. Stop cooking, and you get another electronic melody. There are options to change the **octave** of the melody, or change it to a series of beeps (why just one beep with 15 will do?), but NOT TO TURN IT OFF. I don't want my son to wake up from his nap simply because the rice cooker is feeling self-satisfied. My old rice cooker did fine without twinkle twinkle little star, I ask you, why? WHY?

    I've popped the thing open, hoping to find a speaker that I could clip the leads of of. Nope, the transducer is soldered directly onto the board and is extremely difficult to get at.

    Love the rice cooker. I just wish it would shut up.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect rice cooker
    We have been eating rice almost daily. I decided to buy a Zojirushi when my 3 years-old Aroma rice cooker started to smell really bad after I cooked porridge once. Besides, I have always envy the rice I have had in those japanese restraunts and wondered why my own rice cooker just can't make it right. I decided to get this model because it is not too expensive, although it doesn't have that many features. ... I tried white rice and porridge. They all turned out perfect. Most amazing thing is it didn't leave any mess on the inner lid as my old Aroma rice cooker did everytime. I'm very happy with this product. I will not buy any other brands no matter how inexpensive they are.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great for Large Families
    We actually bought this rice cooker at our local Ranch 99 store and it was on sale for $90.

    I have only used it twice so far. Once to make rice for a party of 8 and another time to make porridge.

    I'm very impressed with the product. Making porridge is such a pain to watch and time but with this rice cooker I just turned it on and forgot it. The regular rice I cooked turned out fine and no sticking to the sides of the pot! Wow!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best rice cooker ever
    I have had this model for over a year and I have never been disappointed. This model has a quick cooking feature which I use a lot, it is so convenient, it cooks the rice quickly and beautifully and beeps to let you know when it is done. When the rice finishes cooking the machine turns itself to the warming mode and simply keeps the rice warm and ready to serve. I finally have the perfect rice which most restaraunts can not hold a candle to.
    I like jasmine, sticky and plain white rice and they all cook great in here, I have also cooked rice for sushi and made puerto rican arroz con gandules in here, all were done perfect!

    I had never used the "fuzzy logic" style rice cooker before. I've owned a classic Zoji rice cooker, the one button style with absolutely no trouble. I decided finally to upgrade to a 10 cup and Zoji impressed me again! This is a great rice cooker that makes it virtually impossible to screw up rice. I thought having an LCD would be pointless, but the count down timer makes it easy to judge just how long I've got till the rice is done. I really like it, I highly recommend! ... Read more

    This rice cooker has really impressed me. I became very frustrated with my inexpensive one that spewed starchy water on my kitchen counter and resulted in rice being consistently stuck to the bottom. This rice cooker did not do either one of the things I just mentioned. The rice is perfect every time. This rice cooker delivered on every promise it makes. Being Asian, rice is an extremely important part of my life. Rice is a blessing and represents all the blessings in life. This rice cooker's non-stick pan allows me not to waste one grain.

    I have used other rice cookers, but this one has spoiled me.
    Stop using instant rice! Just start the rice in the morning and
    when you are ready for dinner, the rice is warm, moist and ready
    for that quick stir fry or mexican burrito recipe. You have never had such fresh tasting rice ready to use when you get home
    tired and face cooking dinner. I use basmati, jasmine, brown, or pearl. All come out just great. And I use my Zojirushi as a roll warmer when needed. Works great. This is not a vegetable
    steamer, not reccommended for that, but the best rice cooker.

    5-0 out of 5 stars I have owned this one for 5 years and it's still going!
    I'm not Asian but my husband is. Because of the inlaws my children love rice and seaweed. I was given this rice cooker by my inlaw to make rice for her son, well it's still going strong and I have not had any problems. The unit is beyond easy to use and I make 4 cups of rice as a standard for our family and keep it plugged in for 3 days and the rice stays warm and ready to eat. That's the way my Mother in Law did it, and I have done the same without any problems.
    Oh and never, ever use any metal items in the rice cooker or you will ruin it. The plastic spoon is really all you need for fluffing your rice once it's finished cooking.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The floral print is key
    Growing up in an Asian family, we weren't about to mess around with cheap crumby rice cookers. The Zojirushi 10 cups through the years have kept me well fed for 25 years. If you treat it well (i.e. no metal on the nonstick), they'll last forever. If you don't eat rice every day or don't have a large family, this unit might be overkill. You may think about a 4 or 5 cup. You can, of course, buy this one too. My mom owns 3 rice cookers. If you ever go to an Asian food market, you'll see that practically every rice cooker comes in floral print. I don't trust a rice cooker without flowers on the side. =)

    PRO:
    Easy perfect rice every time
    Can feed a small army
    Comes with everything except rice and water
    Will last forever with a little care
    Floral print

    CON:
    Not for people living alone
    You need to know how to make rice
    Kinda pricy, but worth it if you eat a lot of rice

    5-0 out of 5 stars The only option!
    My mother has been using hers for 20 years. I own this rice cooker and its the only one I would ever buy. Its good for korean style short grain rice which is really sticky. Western style long grain rice works well too. Once I made a paella in it and it was not bad! You can also add pre-soaked beans to your rice.

    I think the new "fuzzy logic" models are not worthwhile. I just want to put in the rice and cook it!

    There is only one button, so its easy to use. Use the measuring cup that comes with it and then add water up to the corresponding line on the inside of the bowl. For instance, for 3 cups of rice, put water up to the 3 cup line. I prefer moister rice so I add more water, like a 1/2 measure more. The chinese method of adding water to the first knuckle of your finger works too.

    Another tip, this is an awesome non stick bowl, but it scrathes really easily. NEVER EVER, put a fork or even a spoon in it. Use the spatula that comes with it. Also never scrub it, wash with a little soap and soft sponge. I mean it, never scrub or you will ruin it right away.

    I agree with the other reviewer, its all about the retractable power cord. Why dont all appliances have this? ... Read more

    A handy workhorse for homes where tea is a staple, this 3.0-liter Micom pot from Zojirushi boils water then keeps it hot. Equipped with a handy electric dispenser, the unit requires no pouring and makes it easy to fill mug after mug or add a quick shot of hot water to a bowl of oatmeal or ramen. A micro-computerized heating system monitors water temperature precisely and includes a re-boil mode and three keep-warm settings of 175, 195, or 208 degrees F. In addition, a dechlorinating mode helps reduce chlorine and odors, while a descaling mode cleans the interior pot. The unit also has a timer so you can program it to have water hot on your schedule.

    The pot’s control touchpad is cleanly laid out, with satisfying buttons, function lights, and a digital display that shows present water temperature, temperature setting, and remaining time. An automatic lock helps keep fingers safe, and an automatic safety device cuts power to prevent overheating. Other helpful details include a wrap-around water level gauge, a 360-degree swivel base, a nonstick interior, a removable power cord, and a basket-style handle to simplify transport. The pot is no speed demon, taking about 27 minutes to boil a 3.0 liters, but its convenience makes up for the initial time investment. Zojirushi also makes the pot in 2.2-liter and 4.0-liter versions. --Emily Bedard ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Better than a tea kettle!
    I just received this for Christmas, it's something I've wanted for a while. Ever since my tea kettle died of old age, I've been boiling water for tea with a regular sauce pan and what usually happens is I forget all about it and only remember after it has been boiling for a while. Also, I didn't like the long wait for hot water. I want instant gratification! And now I have it with this Zojirushi dispensing pot. It's perfect since I'm an avid tea drinker, consuming several pots of tea each day.

    A long long time ago, I used to have the "air pot" style dispensing pot where you just press on the top and it pumps out water. This one is a much newer design and dispensing is handled electronically. What I like is the "safety" feature which was lacking in the old "air pot" styles. You have to press the "unlock" button before the "dispensing" button which prevents accidentally dispensing hot water. You can set this to keep water at 205°F, 195°F, or 175°F. You can also set it to give you hot water in 7 hours, but this is a feature I really don't need to use. I'm using the 195°F which seems to be a good middle ground for making black (requires hotter water) and green (requires lower temp water) teas. This is also handy for making instant noodles, oatmeal, hot chocolate. Also handy when needing hot water for a dish I'm cooking, or making chicken/beef broth for a dish I'm cooking. This is very convenient ... no more waiting for hot water! (This beats getting a replacement tea kettle because with a tea kettle I still have to wait for it to boil/whistle, and it usually whistles shortly after I've sat down and gotten comfortable.) This pot will automatically reboil when it feels the temp has dropped too much. The water level gauge is easy to read, the lid lifts up easily for refilling (also removes easily to make pouring water out and cleaning a cinch). Another nice little detail is a removable power cord. It makes me feel a bit "safer" being able to remove this before cleaning out the pot in the sink.

    I am confident that this will last me a long time. My in-laws also have a Zojirushi water dispensing pot and it has never failed on them. And I know people who have other Zojirushi products and have had no problems with them. So I feel comfortable with this brand, and I may look into getting one of their rice cookers.

    Oh, I have to mention one more nicety of this dispensing pot. The base will swivel around (think lazy suzan style), making it easy to rotate it without scratching your kitchen counter top.

    The only thing I need to be careful about is where to put the dispensing pot since there is a steam vent on the top. I don't put it directly beneath any kitchn cabinets, just in case the steam might damage the cabinet over time. ... Read more

    Terrific for conveniently cooking one-pot meals or baking, this1300-watt appliance prepares stews, rice dishes, soups, shabu-shabu,pancakes, fried noodles, and many other dishes on the countertop or atthe table. The cooking pot, which lifts off the heating plate, holds 10cups and measures 10 inches in diameter. It's coated intitanium-ceramic nonstick rugged enough to be safe with metal utensils.(The pot can safely be placed on a stovetop gas burner as long asthere's liquid in the pot.) The unit's cooking range is 280-460 degreesF (140 to 240 degrees C), and there's also a keep-warm temperature of180 degrees F (80 degrees C). The bottom section housing the heatingplate is clad in gray plastic, matching the cooking pot's nonstickcoating, with the cooking pot's stay-cool handles providing stylishblack accents. Overall, the oval unit measures 14-1/2 inches wide and7-1/2 inches high, including the pot's see-through glass lid. --FredBrack ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best Electric Skillet I've used.
    This is my third Electric Skillet. I work 100 miles from home and live in a trailer during the week (the commute is terrible around here, but I can't afford another or even a different house). My propane Stove went out a couples years ago now and I started using my BBQ, A toaster over and/or an electric skillet instead. My first skillet was "Silver stone" coated. First time I burnt something in it was the last. I then bought a Stainless Steel pan but didn't like the temperature control and it can be hard to clean. This Zojirushi pan not only can be used to higher temperatures (460F instead of the usual 400F), it's a dream to clean and the temperature control is great. I've already burnt something (on Purpose) Blackened peppercorn Rib Eye. Great!!! (anyone got a good air purifier, next time I'll do it on the porch, another advantage, its portable) But nothing sticks to it, don't even need oil or butter. I like it so much I've ordered the larger Sizzler and started using it too. It's got a larger surface and the sides aren't as deep so it's easier to get a spatula into. Also it goes to 480F (call the Fire Department, yee hah). The design is different, but it's a great pan too.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Overall Excellent Product
    I've had mine for over 6 mos now. I originally bought this to replace a small portable gas burner (using cans of gas) which I used for shabu-shabu & sukiyaki. It takes some time ~12-15 min. to come to a boil on high. And it quickly comes to a boil after adding addtl meat & veggies. Works well to make stews and teppanyaki. Clean-up is a breeze and the non-stick coating is thick (they call it Titanium coating) so it should last a long time. My only complaint is they should have made temp a little higher so it comes to a boil faster. But overall I'm very satisfied and would recommend this item and the brand.

    5-0 out of 5 stars use mine everyday
    I use mine everyday. It's a handy extra burner beyond the four on the stove. I have prepared a delicious stew using it as a slow cooker and I have turned it up high and used it as a grill. Cleans up so easily, too. ... Read more

    I purchased this grill because I wanted a grill to use inside and also wanted a grill with a thermostat. The cooking grid area is very small and the grill is hard to clean since the heating coils are part of the grid and you cannot immerse it in water. If you have it turned up past medium it burns everything.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Grill
    My bf loves my mother's Korean bbq and she likes to use indoor grill to cook right at the table. When he decided he needed his own electric grill we decided to get Zojirushi EB-CC15 because compared to others it looked better, had more cooking space (same size unit), and non-stick coating. Since the purchase, we've used it many times and it cooks wonderfully and cleans with incredible ease. We definitely recommend this item!

    5-0 out of 5 stars FOLLOW UP NOTE.
    We continue to be pleased with this grill and we have noticed one additional benefit over the built in grill we had used previously: there is almost no smoke at all when we grill on the Zoji.
    No matter how well we cleaned our previous grill, cooking 4 steaks would leave a lingering odor in the kitchen for a day. We had even looked into a roof-mounted extractor fan to assist the hood-mounted unit. Happily, we have no smoke problem anymore! ... Read more
