Not much to say, this is a great cooker. This is our third cooker and our second Zojirushi. We had our previous Zojirushi for six years and used it extensively, but we had to leave it behind when we moved to the US. When we arrived in CA we bought an inexpensive B&D, it was ok for the cost and just about managed to make ok white rice, forget brown rice or sushi rice. If you have owned a great cooker you will never want to move away from great rice so we quickly upgraded to the Zojirushi Umami cooker and it has delivered great rice ever since. We mostly cook brown rice (which takes quite a while), but we have tried white and sushi rice as well and it all comes out perfect.
It is quite expensive, but you really get what you pay for.

This is a great product, I am very satisfied. Strongly recommend to any one.Every thing comes as expected. I had a party the other day, every one had more rice than expected and they all praised our rick cooker.

Fantastic rice cooker with many features. The rice turns out amazing and delicious. The Umami flavor is incredible and worth the extra investment. Another design feature I like is that it's easy to clean. I know there are induction and pressure cookers out there but they don't have the Umami flavor. This rice cooker uses less wattage than the induction cookers so you`ll save on electricity. I chose the 10 cup because it can cook even 1 cup of rice perfectly. When I have guests I may cook up to 8 cups of rice so this rice cooker is very versatile. Splurge and get the best rice cooker on the market.
When the cooking begins you will hear a cute melody: "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star". When the rice is done you will hear: "Amaryllis".

I cook brown rice. It takes a while to cook in this machine, but it is totally worth it. It is really good when it is done. It does a much better job with brown rice than my previous Zojirushi rice cooker (which is old) did.
