Rice can either make or ruin a whole meal, there’s nothing quite like perfectly cooked rice, but then again, there’s nothing so bad as grotty rice – a rice cooker really can make like so much easier and all the difference when you just know that you can guarantee perfect rice, every time, from your rice cooker.
So how do you know which is the best rice cooker? It really is down to personal choice, after all, the best rice cooker for you might not be my favorite – see what I mean? Rice cookers are available in 3 basic sizes, 3 cup, 5 cup or 10 cup, depending on how many people you need to feed!
One name which is really well known in the world if rice cookers is the Zojirushi rice cooker. When you are cooking for the whole family, for example, the Zojirushi NS-ZCC10 is one of the most popular rice cookers in the United States and Canada. It’s easy to use, easy to clean and can easily cook enough rice for a family of 4 (or even 5 at a push). Yes, if you’re looking for a rice cooker to serve the whole family then you won’t go far wrong with the Zojirushi NS-ZCC10, one of the premier Japanese rice cookers on the market.
Another popular model of rice cooker from Zojirushi is the Zojirushi NP-HBC10 – this 5.1/2 cup rice cooker is built to last, makes perfect rice every time and even has a warming function which is designed to keep your rice warm for up to an amazing 48 hours, while still retaining that “just cooked” taste. It really is amazing, but then, the Japanese certainly know a thing of two about rice and Japanese rice cookers are the best in the world – probably!

Of course, the model which we ultimately choose will, for many of us, be determined by budget. There are two main questions you need to ask yourself when choosing a new rice cooker – 1, does it cook good rice and 2, how much does it cost? If you are looking for a cheap rice cooker there are plenty available on the market today. Of course, the quality of the cooked rice might not be quite as good as the more expensive Japanese rice cookers, but it really depends on your budget. Even a cheap rice cooker might do a better job of your rice than you do with a saucepan of boiling water!
You really ought to buy the best rice cooker you can possibly afford. The Zojirushi rice cooker, for example, guarantees perfect rice every time you use it.

American brown rice
Image by Emily Barney not really my favorite - doesn't have a lot of flavor, takes a lot longer to cook, and requires careful handling to deal with the heavier texture. It also doesn't absorb flavor as well as white rice - but it's definitely healthier.
