I have a cheap rice cooker that heats only the bottom (most rice cookers do this) of the bowl and it'll burn the rice at the bottom or at least brown it slightly. With this, the heat is generated all around so in theory, you should get a more consistent rice throughout.

Why do people not count pressurizing and pressure release time? Nothing cooks in under 15 minutes in Instant Pot if you count total time.

Heat is heat. Don't understand why anyone would spend this much money to cook rice. Reviews say it taste the same as a regular rice cooker. This appears to be a good price compared to it regular price but I just don't get it. My Sanyo cooker is 40 years old and still going strong.

Came here to post the same deal and found someone already did. Cheapest IH I could find from Zojirushi was at Mitsuwa for $199 and it was the cheaper HCC model (older I think). I jumped on this one.

This one cooks GABA rice which is a tasty brown rice and has settings for different kinds of rice because different grains don't cook at the same rate

It's the no hassle anyone can do it aspect. I also have a 40+ year old Tatung (hand me down from my mother) that cooks rice perfectly and does not burn/make dry rice. But, I have to measure with a measuring cup (I can eyeball to double water level, but results are not as consistent). Also, a Zojirushi will maintain cooked rice at the same humidity for days. Helpful if you want seconds. All of my relatives own one.

Personally I'm reluctant to let go of my Tatung but I would buy this if my Tatung ever dies.

I have a Tiger brand 5.5 cup induction rice cooker. The rice is more evenly cooked and it has a warmer function that keeps it over 140f to prevent bacteria growth along with being able to seal in the moisture. It will keep rice for a day... maybe two... and still taste good. I paid around $160 for mine. My previous cooker was an old National brand rice cooker. It was good and reliable. It did burn the bottom of the rice on occasion... it also had an aluminum bowl and no warmer function. I went with the Tiger one because they don't make cheap rice cookers like the old National ones any more. All of the newer cheap ones I tried were really bad at burning the bottom of the rice. Being able to store rice in the rice cooker is also a very nice feature to have. No more putting left over rice in the fridge and then microwaving it.

Made in Japan and IH. Nice. That's a great price.

Just make sure 3 cups is enough. My family's big enough I'd want at least 5.5.

That's good point to bring up. A rule of thumb I have heard is that it is one cup per person. For example, a 3 cup rice cooker is good for up to 3 people, a 5.5 cup is good for up to 5 people etc.

I just bought a urlhasbeenblocked 20 cup rice cooker (yes, 20 cups vs 3 cups for this made in Japan) which looks like a clone of this one and at half price! And it cooks fantastically.
