Quote from Invisiblemoose View Post :
I bought a Tiger JNP-0550, made in Japan, for ~$95. Looks very similar to my Tatung, made in Taiwan I believe, which cost me $20. I used the Tatung for years at university -- the Tiger I bought in November. Same simple one-button design -- not digital. Despite nearly identical looks, I'll bet the internals aren't the same..

The big difference? Consistency. The Tatung cooked rice fine -- but never quite the same. Sometimes it would come out wet and mushy, other times more firm and dry. Always edible, but always a surprise.

The Tiger cooks rice exactly the same every time -- perfect, with a delicious bit of o-koge on the bottom.

Another difference with the Tiger is you can leave the rice on warming much longer without affecting the rice much -- overnight, even, for packing lunch.

You can always boil/steam your rice to perfection without an expensive machine -- but if you eat a lot of rice, the convenience is worth the cost. Cooking a Japanese-style meal is enough work without having to worry about the rice..

thx for the review. where did you get the tiger one? was it long ago?

That's a tough one. Let me give you an idea here then. For the gf and I if we're wanting something simple like white rice to put under something like orange chicken, we typically cook just 1 cup. It ends up enough rice to easily cover half our plates as a deep bed for the chicken. I personally think a 5.5 cup makes an ample amount of rice for 5 people.

I don't know though, when you get into making OTHER things (actual recipes / one pot meals in it, which I DO recommend you try with the cookbook I listed) you might with that many people be wanting the larger model. I suggest you find a bookstore or library with that book asap to flip through as it might help your decision if this sale is going on a few days....(I don't know when it ends).

My gut says that 5.5 cup would be fine though.

Sharing one recipe since spring will soon be here and there will be fresh rhubarb (April and May).

For a 6 cup (I use my 5.5) rice cooker, fuzzy logic only
Cycle: Porridge
Yields about 3 cups

5 large, firm, tart green apples (1.5 to 1.9 lbs)
2 cups fresh rhubarb cut into 1" pieces (1/2 lb)
1/2 cup water or apple juice
1/2 cup sugar
1 to 2 tsp grated orange zest
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter

1. Peel, core, and coarsely chop the apples (smaller pieces tend to be better here rather than huge ones). Place in the rice cooker bowl. Add the rhubarb, water, sugar, orange zest, and butter. Close the cover and set for the Porridge cycle. Yes, your rice cooker will be very full.

2. When the machine switches to the Keep Warm cycle, carefully open the cover allowing the steam to escape. Stir the cooked fruit and its liquid with a wooden or plastic rice paddle or wooden spoon. The applesauce should be soft and chunky (you can puree it in a food processor or with an immersion blender if you like it smooth THOUGH NOT IN THE RICE COOKER BOWL). Let stand to cool.

My tip: You may think it looks like a soupy mess of rhubarb and apples in water when you opened it, but I usually let mine sit open for quite a while on keep warm for it to thicken some more.

3. Transfer the applesauce to a covered container and refrigerate. Keeps for up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator, or freeze.

For people who eat rice every day, it's worth every penny. Find any appliance that you can say with confidence that you can use reliably every day that will last you 10+ years.

For people who eat rice occasionally like me, it's still worth it. I just buy smaller size rice cooker of the same brand. The rice's made perfect every time. As a comparison, my girlfriend has a cheap $30 cooker of the off-brand at Chinese market or even Walmart. Eating her cooked rice gives me constipation every time due to the rice not being cooked completely and evenly.

As a rule of thumb, if you want GOOD cooked rice, stick with Tiger or Zojirushi, and make sure they are made in Japan.

Welcome to the world of inflation. I can remember when the average cell phone plan was 39.99, and data was unlimited and cheap, I remember when gas was 1.99 a gallon and Xbox live was low 30ies. I remember when guns and ammo were both cheap and readily available. I remember when milk and other staples were much cheaper than they are today...

But that's not the world we live in, nor are the prices of yesterday similar or likely to ever return. We have had a massive amount of printing of money, the likes of which hasn't been seen, and the inflation has only started to be felt. What the current administration hasn't fixed for us, corporations looking out only for shareholders will bleed the rest of us for what the govt didn't get in taxes and fees.

Welcome to life now. A rice cooker is selling for 150, it's a good deal. It's in line with other absurd deals posted on here, like earlier in the week when juicers that "normally" cost 500+ were selling for 300ish.

If you really want to see fleecing, look at tech. More and more computer mfr's are dumbing down hardware so you can do less and pay more. The upcoming chrome book retina is 1300, for hardware that can't run applications, only browser add ons. Why let you store stuff on a hard drive, when we can pay for a monthly subscription to back up to the cloud. And people love it. I suppose if we can only use a browser the web will become much safer, and we can eliminate side issues such as piracy etc.

PS thanks OP. I did get one. My rice cooker doesn't steam vegetables nearly as well and is on its last leg. So it was a good time to upgrade.

huh...???
We eat rice everyday (although the quantity may not be as huge as that of Asians Wink)
And even a normal Black and Decker rice cooker [walmart.com] makes good rice, provided you use a good quality rice (and of course know how to cook rice...lol), like Zafarani [amazon.com] and then you will realize what is more important, rice or the cooker Wink
Here is the formula:-
for each cup of zafarani rice, add 2 cups of water, a bit of salt, a few drops of olive oil or a small piece of butter (we do this to avoid getting it sticky) and then even if you use an "avg quality" cooker like Black and Decker, it will be a world-class rice, trust me and try it once...

I have five in my family, but am going for the 10 cup based on what I have read in various reviews. I think the 5.5 is enough for just my family, but if we have guests over? Cook 2 batches? The first will be over an hour old when the second is done and how would I keep it fresh?. The dimensions are really not that much wider or deeper (about 1 inch for most models).

BTW, there are many other models besides the one in this thread that casa.com sells. I am getting the Zojirushi NS-YAC18 Umami.

I used to think this too, but after having some rice at a friends house (cooked in a Zojirushi) and getting the same rice to try to replicate the rice they had there, It was not even close (this was expensive premium rice too). Sure the rice I bought turned out (and tasted) better than the cheap stuff, but nowhere near as good as when it had been cooked in the Zojirushi.
