Many people are frustrated that they aren't able to produce delicious rice. It is the basis of many dishes and goes with almost any food. Rice cookers also let people make rice without fussing over it. They just put rice and water in the rice cooker and return at the appropriate time. Sushi has become a popular food in the United States. While many people enjoy going to a sushi bar, it has become very popular to make sushi at home. This dish, more than any other requires perfectly cooked rice. Visit any kitchen in Japan and there's a good chance that there will be a rice cooker in it.
Zojirushi Rice Cookers
Looking for reliable Japanese Rice Cookers? Then buy a Zojirushi rice cooker - the premier Japanese appliance brand since 1918
Zojirushi rice cookers are the answer you're looking for, if you've tried for years to cook restaurant-quality authentic tasting Japanese or Chinese rice - and failed. I have to admit that that is my story. I have some of the best pots on the market that promise you'll be able to make rice in them. No matter how much water I used - or didn't use. No matter how I adjusted the cooking time. The rice was less than okay. Out of total frustration, I finally resorted to boiling rice in bags.
But my rice cooking was saved, when my husband and I were given a small 3-cup Zojirushi rice cooker as a housewarming gift. I have used it at least once a week to make rice (even brown rice). But more importantly we can make oatmeal in it and have it waiting for us in the morning. So the first thing I smell is the wonderful aroma of oatmeal in the morning. Then just before it's time to get up, I hear to coffee maker turn on. So I basically don't get out of bed until breakfast is cooked
