I'll weigh in as an eater of daily rice. I've used a Costco Zojirushi NS-WRC10 5.5-cup Rice Cooker for awhile and it's been great, but noticed the inner pot non-stick lining was starting to come off so I looked into a stainless steel inner pot. Thus, I purchased an Instant Pot Ultra Mini 3 Qt specifically to cook rice and grains. Results for cooked rice in Instant Pot I've noticed is that while multi-cookers get the job done, finished product is not as good:

Rice is not very evenly cooked.
Texture is not fluffy.
Keep warm for longer than 1 hr will start drying out rice.

I've cooked white, brown, red, black rice, multi-color quinoa, and several other grains and followed Instant Pot's directions/recommendations for rice and grains. Generally, dedicated rice cookers have better, even cooking (especially induction cookers), seals for keep warm function can last hours (this is important for me since I sometimes come home hours after rice was cooked), and they have better timers (uses clock times, not hr/min from current time, etc).

Instant Pots and other multi-cookers are awesome for other things like stews, curries, chilies etc, but only okay for rice and grains.

I'm currently on the hunt again for a good dedicated rice cooker with a stainless steel, ceramic, or other inner pot materials that are non-toxic, won't peel, etc.

If you got a blind taste test on rice made from a higher end Asian rice cooker vs a pressure cooker, I bet you would pick the rice cooker every time. It really is that much better.

My wife is Vietnamese. Rice is a staple food in our home.

With a good quality rice cooker, you can cook rice with one button press, and when it's done it will automatically cycle into "keep warm" mode and it will stay warm and perfectly good for a full day.

Kids come home from school and want a bite to eat? Rice cooker.

Breakfast? Cook up some eggs and a scoop of rice from the rice cooker.

It's always warm, perfectly cooked and waiting for you.

Can someone explain please why would I need a 1L rice cooker for 100+ bucks while I can get 6L pressure multi cooker capable of making rice and more for 50? Maybe I'm missing something.

Thanks for your explanation. Even though I am quite picky about rice I see now there are more sophisticated rice eaters out there. Rice I cook in my Instant pot satisfies my taste 100%

Contemplated buying Zojirushi, but have some concerns about the non stick inner pot. Is there any good dedicated rice cooker with a ceramic or other non toxic inner pot you could recommend? Thanks.

Washing a Japanese rice cooker pot, you are not supposed to use any scratchy tool. You can just wash with water and a piece of paper towel without soup. Even if you get several scratches you can still use it without any sticking problems. I've using microcomputer type for 17 years and it finally lost the battery for front clock timer last year.

My 3 year old zojirushi cooks excellent rice but it will be so dry if I try to keep the rice warm for several hours. The 7 year old Toshiba rice cooker of my parents can keep the rice for 2+ days and it still tastes like freshly made. I noticed the Toshiba inner pan is much thicker than zojirushi's one but not sure if that's the reason

As I know, the Japan rice cooker is 1L capable as like the 3L normal rice cooker.
