If there is a kitchen appliance that can be said to save the most time and effort during cooking, it must be a rice cooker. But not any rice cooker, you need to make sure you buy a good quality product such as this Zojirushi product.
More Features Means More Convenience
With its wealth of settings and features you will be surprised at the things the NS-TGS10 can do for you. For example there is the timer function which allows you to cook the rice so that it is ready for you when you need it. The flexibility of being able to have the rice ready when you return home in the evening means that you will find yourself using the timer on a regular basis. Then there is the warmer, which ensures that the rice stays warm if you are not ready to use it, but the rice will never dry out. Even after 12 hours or so the rice still tastes great!
The inner cooking pot of the Zojirushi NS-TGC10 is marked with water levels, which you use to determine how much water to add for different amounts and types of rice. This removes the need to measure out the water separately with the consequent risk of making the wrong measurement. Each different type of rice has its own setting and it is very easy to figure out what to do.
To help with cleaning up, the bowl is non-stick and cleans up easily. The inner lid of the cooker also removes easily to enable it to be cleaned.
A Rice Cooker is the Key to Healthy Eating
For a family of 2 – 5, the Zojirushi NS-TGC10 is the perfect size and the key to a healthy diet. From steel cut oats that are ready when you wake up, to jasmine rice, brown rice, sushi rice, mixed rice, risotto or rice pilaf, the NS-TGC10 cooks each to perfection. For its ease of use and the perfect results every time, you will find that this will be the best investment in kitchen appliances that you will ever make.
It also seems to have a mind of its own. You will find that if you add the wrong amount of water, as long as the quantity is not wildly out, the NS-TGC10 rice cooker seems to adjust for it and still makes great rice or oatmeal.
Which Zojirushi Model to Choose?
There are many Zojirushi rice makers on the market and it can be difficult to choose between them. Probably most people end up comparing this NS-TGC10 5 1/2-Cup model vs. Zojirushi’s NS-LAC05 3-Cup model. It depends on how many people you are cooking for. The big advantage of this 5 1/2-Cup model is that it gives you more flexibility to make more rice in the event that you have friends or family over for dinner, or on occasions when you might want to cook ‘one pot’ rice-based dishes. You certainly won’t find any problems with the quality of the rice if you decide to only cook 2 or 3 cups of rice for example in this 5 1/2-Cup model. In addition this model can be used to make cakes whereas the smaller model cannot.
Zojirushi NS-TGC10 Micom Rice Cooker with Advanced Fuzzy Logic
The combinations of the advanced fuzzy logic technology and the multi-menu cooking functions allows you to make white/sushi rice, brown rice, sweet rice, mixed rice, porridge, cakes and so on with ease and with perfect and consistent results every single time. It has a clear coated stainless steel exterior and a black thick inner cooking pan. The LCD control panel is easy to read. A spatula, spatula holder and rice-measuring cup are included.
