Promo code comes in your email everyday when you sign up.

Where is this made in? China?

Prefer the make in Japan ones.

It is made in China. This is probably the lowest priced Zojirushi rice cooker out there. Costco's NS-WSC10 cost 89.99

I haven't used this model, but have only had great experiences with Zojirushi products. Even the beat-up bread maker I bought off of Craigslist for $15 has performed flawlessly for years. I have a different Zojirushi rice cooker, but it has lasted ~15 years of nearly daily use, and has never let me down.

I got this one couple of days ago. It is a great budget rice cooker and it is better than the white rice cooker sold at Costco in terms of taste and rice hardness/ softness if you do not mind the smaller size of this one.

Is that so? We had a Tiger rice cooker or two that lasted at least 10 years. I upgraded to Cuckoo, the premiere Korean brand and paid $500 for the IH 10 cups rice cooker. That thing is full of tech. It even speaks in Korean, English or Chinese. We were happy with it until about 3 years into it the damn thing could not hold the steam in. The steam comes out around the lid instead of the designated hole. On top of that, you need to replace the rubber gasket around the lid once a year to keep the steam and pressure in. I was hoping that it will last as long as my old Tiger rice cooker. So much for Korean quality and engineering. Now it will cost me anywhere from 80-270 to fix this issue. I think i will give Zojirushi a try next. To be honest, I think Japanese quality and engineering overall is still ahead of the Koreans when it comes to tech stuff.

Growing up, my mom always told me, tiger for rice cookers and zoji for water heaters. Our old tiger was also 10+ years before we decided to get a new one (the non-stick pan was starting to flake and lid rubbers were deteriorating) but it still cooked fine.

i guess the fancier they got. the less reliable they have become. I dont mind replacing the seal rubber ring/gasket because do to the heat, it will deteriorate over time. But everything else should be durable and last for years considering the price I paid for it!

You have to replace the rubber housing. Which is a user replaceable part.

The difference between your old heat plated cooker and the Cuckoo pressure ( most likely induction heater) is its electric pressure. It requires more stringent standards than your older Tiger model.

I've had a Tiger and Zoribushi cooker before but none of it compares to my electric pressure Cuckoo.

It did the same to me but I noticed the zip was incorrect and once I made the correction it came out to free shipping under "ground shipping". And I'm in Colorado.
