Is Zojirushi a good brand?

When it comes to cooking technology, Zojirushi is a bit better than Tiger. It is, therefore, great to use Zojirushi if you would like to prepare food at the right temperatures and not the guesswork that many people do when they use other brands of rice cookers.

Every Zojirushi rice cooker comes with a plastic measuring cup. This cup has a capacity of 6-ounces, or about 3/4 of a U.S. measuring cup.

Are Zojirushi rice cookers worth it?

To me, the $200 I spent on the rice cooker was worth it. It cooks rice very well, keeps it warm for a long time and has a ton of advanced features. This also allows it to cook several varieties of rice. My Zojirushi cooks brown rice, semi-brown rice, short grained rice (e.g. Risotto).

Can you cook meat in a rice cooker?

You can even steam a whole fish in a steamer basket lined with vegetables for a full one-pot meal. Or try steaming fully cooked sausages on a bed of sauerkraut and potatoes (30-40 minutes cooking time). You can cook just about any meat in the rice cooker this way, even an entire chicken.

How much water do you put in Japanese rice?

The Japanese golden rule for rice to water ratio is 1 : 1.1 (or 1.2). That is 10-20% more water (that you didn't add). For 1 rice cooker cup (180 ml), you will need 200 ml of water, not 180 ml.

Should I buy a rice cooker?

Even if you only use it for rice and not as a multi-tasker, it's very convenient. If you regularly cook rice (once a week or more), a low-end rice-cooker is a good investment. If you're cooking rice almost every night, then a high-end one may be a good investment.
