Thread Details

Haven't had the chance to use my $25 code as I did not see anything heavily discounted that I wanted to buy on Newegg the past few days.

Today, Newegg drops its price on this excellent induction heating rice cooker from $239.99 to $209.99. Cheapest it has been on Amazon two weeks ago was $189 (plus the usual state tax) so this still comes out cheaper for me at $184.99. It doesn't have the synchro cooking function but I don't think I want that feature anyway.

Amazon reviews are pretty decent:

There's already been a few deals on Tiger microcom rice cookers recently, but this one is for those of you who simply will not settle for anything less than induction heating Wink It's been almost half a year since another induction rice cooker was under $200, so if you want one, get it now.
Let's not turn this thread into a debate of whether your rice is worth the induction heating or not. If you eat enough rice and it's worth it to you, then it is. If you don't, then it's not, and that's that.

Also, please skip the arguments for/against eating rice and its high glycemic index etc., there's been enough of that in the previous threads Smilie

honest question. Why? I just graduated college and was super happy with my $5 black friday special and i would buy the 25 lb bags of rice from sams for myself each semester. I'm sure in some people's minds it is like trying to compare gas station sushi to traveling to Japan and dining with the emperor.

Congratulations on your graduation and hope you land your dream first job.

For a family of four, we don't often finish the 2 cups of rice we make and with our current Tiger rice cooker, the rice eventually dries up. I am guessing this will be less of an issue with induction heating. The additional bonus is possibly fluffier rice and 20% shorter cooking time.

I understand where you are coming from but for me, $184 is a small price to pay ( to be more inclined to eat at home) versus eating out more often (more time and money spent) or using our old Black & Decker rice cooker that doesn't make good cooked rice.

I think the Japanese and Korean make the more advanced rice cookers as rice is a staple for them unlike in North America where rice isn't eaten as much.
