I got married a few years ago. Me and my wife both are working people. When we started our new life we face a little heave when it comes to cooking as when ever any of us comes back from office we both are dead tired and lately perched out of energies. Out of many things which are common between me and my wife, we both are rice lover. Not just lover I would say but you can well imagine that rice is a must part of our menu weather it is lunch or dinner. We were not only facing problems with cooking the rice but we also didn’t had time for cooking as we have other chores to do as well. Then my sister in law gave us the idea to try this japanese rice cooker, as it will not only save time, also we can have the great quality of rice every time we cook through zojirushi as there is no chance of misjudgment. Both of us liked the idea very much. So we bought a zojirushi. And just as we expected that was a very pleasant experience. The rice was very well cooked, no breaking of rice. The timer function is a great addition, as you just have to put the rice and water in it, set the time and you can go to office. And when you will return you will be welcomed by the great odor of cooked rice.
The weight of zojirushi is almost 10 pounds which makes it very portable and easy to handle. Among all the other plus points of zojirushi there are several other too which are worth mentioning. The outlook is absolutely a class, a modern looking design having a stainless black body. The music sets off when the cooking starts and finish. The keep warm function works well. I 1st thought it will turn the rice mushy if we leave the rice for the night. But that didn’t happened, the rice were as fresh as newly cooked, warm and ready to serve.
This model is even perfect for large families too as it can cook a whole meal for them. The steam function is a very big advantage when it comes to beans. As the beans are sometime tough to cook. The re-usage of steam cooks the beans perfectly and to the bottom. The base is a four pointed having a very firm grip on many types of surfaces. With all these features who being a rice lover can overlook this offer. As far as we are concerned we would highly recommend it as it is not just meant for the rice but with the additional features one can use it to cook the boiled chicken with the rice and vegetables without the loss of nutrition. A perfect buy as it will cover its cost within a month. 5 stars I would give to it and hope to enjoy the same great taste whenever I cook.
