Zojirushi NS-ZCC18 Neuro Fuzzy Rice Cooker & Warmer, 10 Cup, Premium White, Made in Japan
The NS-ZCC18 Neuro Fuzzy Rice Cooker tops this list of the best Zojirushi rice cookers and is touted as our best Japanese rice cooker with many advanced rice cooker features that produce perfect rice in every cooking cycle. The main selling point is its intelligent Neuro Fuzzy Logic technology, which masters the process and adjusts its temperature and time levels accordingly.
Traditional rice cookers automatically shut off based on heat and temperature, whether your rice is cooked or not. But the Zojirushi NS-ZCC18 Neuro Fuzzy Rice Cooker and Warmer knows when the rice is fully cooked and adjusts the temperature and cooking time to produce the best quality rice possible. It “masters” the cooking cycle and knows the right cooking options to produce the best Zojirushi rice, so you don’t have to worry about adjusting anything – the cooker does it all on its own.
The NS-ZCC18 also features a thick, spherical inner induction heating pot that effectively balances heat. Induction heating technology distributes heat evenly throughout the inner pot, ensuring that the rice cooks evenly without burning it at the bottom.
The stove features a selection of menu settings that can be easily navigated through an easy-to-use control panel. You can cook any rice you want, including: white rice (long or short grain), regular rice (long or short grain), sushi rice, mixed rice, porridge, sweet rice, semi-brown rice, no-wash rice rice and quick cooking. There is also a keep warm function on board to ensure your rice is at the optimal serving temperature even hours after the cooking cycle has ended.
The NS-ZCC18 has a capacity of 10 cups and can cook up to 20 cups of rice. It has a smaller counterpart, the NS-ZCC10, which has a 5.5-cup raw rice capacity and can produce 10 cups of cooked rice.
For smaller families or those living alone, the Zojirushi NS-ZCC10 Neuro Fuzzy Rice Cooker model is highly recommended. Measuring only 14 x 8 x 9 inches, it can easily be added to a small kitchen. The smaller capacity also provides the right amount of healthy portions for your small family. But don’t worry, because the NS-ZCC10 5.5-cup rice cooker is an exact replica of the NS-ZCC18 10-cup rice cooker. The only difference is that it is smaller and has a smaller capacity.
Any Zojirushi NS-ZCC10 rice cooker review will tell you that this model is an excellent kitchen companion. But the NS-ZCC18 is better for you, if you have a large family.
