    Default Rice cookers - zojirushi? other suggestions?

    Been using a $40 hamilton beach rice cooker for a while now. Its done the job, but thinking about getting something a bit more premium now (~$200 range).

    Debating between these two, but open to other suggestions:

    Can get this one for about $145, not sure if the neuro fuzzy is worth the extra $85?

    Don't you need to get the one with the roses on it?

    i bought this 3 years ago and has been a great investment.

    i noticed that the inside of the pan chipped somehow even though we have been careful not to put any metal solid objects inside when cleaning it.
    makes perfect rice all the time though from white rice, brown and gaba.

    cant go wrong with either zoji or tiger though, just pick one that fits your budget and type of rice you plan on making.
    micom/neuro fuzzy is all the same

    It's lasted us well, but then again as correctly stated by the stocker at T&T, we are not a "rice eating people" so it's not a daily use item. I will say though it doesn't do brown rice that well

    We've actually been very happy with our Instant Pot for rice but Zojirushi is the go-to if you're looking for a premium dedicated rice cooker. I am not sure if this is still the case, but some models were made in China and others in Japan if that matters to you.

    Tigerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

    Bought from Costco. Works good. $99

    If you wanna go old skool, get the one button Tiger from Asian grocery store. But either work.

    Eat rice 3-4 times a week. Can confirm asian.

    I find it awful for the stock pot in regards to stickage...
    Did you buy the nonstick inner?

    No just the regular pot. Sometimes we get a bit of rice stuck to the bottom but 90% of it is perfect so I'm not too bothered by it. I imagine a non-stick liner would be better though. We're always cooking brown/wild rice though so white rice might be worse for stickiness.

    I should burn my imperialist Japanese-made Zojirushi and purchase a Cuckoo from my people.

    Yeah well I wonder how they get the soft flowing caramel inside the Caramilk bar but you don't see me making a god damn thread about it. Slap your wife Baygirl, straighten him out.
