Lowest price in a long time. Great pressure rice cooker from the largest Korean brand. Well worth the investment if rice is part of your regular diet. Particularly beneficial if you use brown rice.

1. Supposedly brings out more GABA (helps people relax, sleep supposedly. Yes, they have Gaba chocolate in Japan, too, but it doesn't do anything for me besides satisfying the sweet tooth craving.)

2. In Korean.
Ie. A pain for anyone not Korean speaking.

3. Supposedly, pressure cooking mode for faster cycles.

4. Setup and calibrated to make rice the way Koreans like rice, not Chinese (Tatung old school style) or Japanese (Tiger, Zojirushi, Panasonic, etc) way.
The rice types each country typically uses is also different, so you'll have variations in how those types are cooked as well.

5. Forget about easy warranty.

6. https://m.kohls.com/product/prd-1044813/zojirushi-micom-55-cup-rice-cooker-warmer.jsp

https://www.homedepot.com/p/Tatung-6-Cup-Stainless-Steel-Multi-Cooker-TAC-06KN-UL/303331780?cm_mmc=Shopping%7CG%7CBase%7CHDH%7C29-28_SMALL+ELECTRICS%7CNA%7CPLA%7CCookers%7c71700000048833951%7c58700004850322376%7c92700041732069712

For most people in America who need a big 6~ cup, the Kohl's Zojirushi (with Kohl's cash), even the Home Depot 6-cup Tatung will suffice at cheaper prices and last.

7. If you're the type to be lazy, old school type like the Tatung is far easier to clean than the new electronic types. Solid interior pan = simple wipe with sponge. Also, they can be used to cook stews easily - put ingredients into put, water outside, cover and cook - and steam buns. Simple lid means easy to check food, add ingredients and stir stews, and clean.

8. The electric rice cooker was invented in Japan, and since the post-war era, has advanced in tech and programming to be the most advanced five cookers in the world at the top end (those $1000+ rice cookers). Pot coatings and build especially. https://panasonic.jp/tourist/en/suihan/

...

Honestly, for a Chinese, the modern electronic ones don't do it for me. Not versatile enough (no easy stew, steaming), too many parts to clean after each use (just how long does it take to clean out the vent hole alone??), inner pot surface too complex to clean with a fast wipe, and everything's delicate (not stainless steel or aluminium). Thus, Tatung to replace the broken one (which tends to last 10-20 years+).

But that's eating Chinese rice all day. Obviously, if making Japanese dishes all the time, strong consideration for the Japanese rice cookers IF using high-grade Japanese rice.

(If you're using the cheapest rice, why bother with an expensive rice cooker??)

...

With any rice cooker, proper preparation according to instructions (If none, then on your own) is a key.
Proper rinsing and washing of the rice until the water runs clear, temperature of the washed rice, how long it sits drained before the cycle starts, etc.

Noticeably better tasting.

...

For Brown rice, assuming for American tastes, a Japanese make with American targeted model will have the proper brown, quinoa, etc settings on the front menu and optimized cooking for those types of rice.

Korean brown rice is different, so this rice cooker will cook it to Korean taste standards instead.

I bought an Induction Heating Pressure rice cooker from Cuckoo a couple years ago for over $300 and it's been working great.

I also have the induction version also bought it for $300 about 5 years ago. Still going strong. It's one of the best investments I've ever made. I've had the heat plate versions and the non pressure cooker versions and they all just plain suck. The brown rice is perfectly moist every time. Just make sure you get the water level just right or you'll screw it up big time.

What's so special about this particular cooker? I cook brown rice at home with the rice cooker I bought several years ago - it seems to do a nice job.

I would pay that for a rice cooker even if the cooker went to the store and bought the rice all buy itself.
How many of these rice cookers did you buy?

So Cukoo is considered a high end rice cooker in Korea.
There is a huge difference between this and other pressure rice cookers.
If you like Korean/Japanese style cooked rice then this will beat all the rice cookers in the world. (Somewhat stickly and more bouncy)
Now if you prefer southeast asian/Indian/Chinese style, this might not be it.
This is a really good price for entry. Average is around 250-300.

As a matter of fact, I am using this exact same model. Does a really good job.

It makes it super moist unlike some dogdriedsheit coming out of your 40 dollar cooker
