I have this rice cooker, bought one a few years ago and it's amazing. I've made a few dishes with it like hainanese chicken and rice porridge. and I also use it to steam vegetables all the time. If you are going to feed a family of 4 or more people, I would highly suggest this one over the 3 cup one.

Tiger sucks. No comparison. I have both.
its probably due to the selection of products stateside, but Tiger is one of the best sellers at yodobashi in japan:

japan always keeps the best stuff for themselves.

They sure don't make them like they used to. The exact model worked for about 7-8 months before the keep warn function completely stopped working and the rice would be dry within a few hours. Sure, it made great rice for that time but for over $100 it should last much longer. If you eat the rice as soon as it's cooked this may not be a problem for you but if you don't, be prepared for a world of disappointment. And what about the warranty you ask? It sounds good until you find out that you pay shipping both ways! What a joke!
Buy cuckoo or cuchen pressure rice cooker. Those are expensive. Maybe around $200. But rice would not dry within 2 or 3 days. I have cuckoo and it works fine.

Bought it last year for Xmas for 109+tax; been using it every other day with warmer or extended warm and so far so good. No complaints at all.

My personal take is that not everything that is made in China is trash. iPhones are "assembled" in China so are other products including this. It depends on company and how much they pay attention to quality control and overall manufacturing process.

I mentioned this on the 3-cup version that was recently posted. It may be useful to some in the future:

Models made in Japan will say "Made in Japan" on the control panel, typically above the "Start/Reheat" button in black font. The same applies to other Zojirushi appliances such as their water boilers (it will say it above the "Unlock" button).

Models made in China will simply not say "Made in Japan" on the control panel.

Previous comments are pretty funny. I've used models from both countries and I'm not growing a third arm nor do I feel as though I've dropped one standard deviation in IQ. If you like to worry for a living, consider the mattress in your bedroom off-gassing chemicals into your lungs or the fluoride in your water making your newborn child potentially mentally ill.

My wife and I have a made in China 3 cup (NS-TSC10) and it has been flawless for the 3 years we've had it with semi-daily use.
My mother has a larger model purchased in Japan (not sure where it was made) and it has been going strong for over a decade.
It has been a very good investment and I'd recommend it to anyone.

Yeah I agree... Buy it with a Costco Citi card and get extra 2 yr warranty for peace of mind

Same query I asked in the other thread. In case anyone here knows -

Does anyone know whether it's worth it to buy one of the more expensive induction cooking models. From what I can tell, the induction models are made in Japan and arguably have better quality (though I won't bet on it). Also they cook faster. But I'm not sure whether there is any difference in quality of the rice. If there is - I would rather buy the induction mode instead. If it's truly a once in 10-yr purchase like what folks are saying then I don't mind the difference in price. But if quality of rice is same, then of course I'll just buy this one.

Does the inner pan comes with non stick coating that gets scratched easily?
That was always the problem when we had Zojirusji cooker.

my .02: a simple rice cooker like the Zojirushi NHS-18 is fine.

Mine is over 25 years old and it does one thing very well: makes perfect rice.

Mine is non-stick aluminum and over the years the line has developed its own burnished smoothness. I don't dishwasher wash it, I just let it soak. Occasionally I'll scrub with some vinegar.

The NHS-18 is $55

So have you actually tried the the newer ones over the past 25 years?
