Things You Should Know Before You Buy a Zojirushi NS-ZCC10 Rice Cooker

Zojirushi make over 20 different models that are sold in the U.S. and Canada today. Are the most expensive rice cookers the best? Of course price is often a factor in determining quality however there are some instances where you do not have to buy the most expensive product to get an amazing kitchen appliance. Choosing to buy a Zojirushi NS-ZCC10 rice cooker is one of those times.

It is surprising that this device is so cheap, relatively. Compared to more expensive models, this one can cook more different kinds of rice than all but the most expensive Zojirushi rice cooker, which is about double the price! The NS-ZCC10 has settings for a host of different rice including white, brown, semi-brown, sweet, mixed, porridge, quick cook and rinse free settings. This makes it one of the most versatile machines in the whole range.

This machine can be purchased in either 5 1/2 cup or 10 cup capacity. Depending upon how many mouths you have to feed it may be wiser to get the larger model. The good thing is that the size has little bearing on the price. Of course the larger machine is slightly more expensive. However it is the technology of the style rather than the size that is the main determining factor when it comes to cost.

The styling of the NS-ZCC10 is fairly plain. It would fit in with most kitchen designs and layout. The outer body is made of hard white plastic. This makes it easy to wipe down should it get a bit dirty. Cleaning of the machine itself is easy. After serving the rice you should let the inner cooking bowl cool down completely and dry out thoroughly. Then all you have to do is wipe out the dry “rice paper crust” that is left. Then the inner lid pops out allowing you to wash it easily.
