Several reviewers dubbed the Zojirushi NS-ZCC10 5-1/2-Cup Neuro Fuzzy Rice Cooker and Warmer, Premium White the top-of-the-line rice cooker. The product is solid and beautifully engineered. The footprints are small but the production possibilities are large.
The unit is designed to cook rice spherically. The black, thick interior spherical pot is covered with DuPont Teflon. The stay-cool handles make it a snap to lift the interior cooking pot from the machine. The Teflon really serves two purposes. It does not permit the rice to stick to the cooking surface and it does make cleaning so easy.
Zojirushi refers to the rice cooker’s technology as “neuro fuzzy” technology. This technology provides the user with multiple menu selections. The options include temperatures for various rice types. The sky is the limit.
Users should use the measuring cups included with the cooker. These cups are not the same size as standard cups. Use these cups for both rice and water. One measuring cup is for regular rise and the other is for non-rinsed rice.
The technology also provides an automatic warming cycle. When the contents are cooked, the automatic warmer kicks in and keeps food war without burning or further cooking. To cook the rice, add the number of measured cups and then an equal amount of measured cup holding water. Spices and flavoring can then be added. Stir the mix and select the type rice being cooked.
Next, the user pushes the power button. When the rice is cooked, an indicator light will notify the user. In the world of rice cookers, this is an all-star. Reviewers report it lasting from 6 – 10 years.
