Every time one of these comes up I'm so confused as to whether I should buy it. So far I have gathered it must be from japan, must be IH, must be 3-5 cups. What else? What's the gold standard model to get I'm tired of waiting for a deal on these things and want some good rice! /rant
10 cup is tooo big for most people. I have a 5.5 cup and wish I had a 3 cup. The counter footprint is smaller. Plenty of rice for our 2-person household. Though someone at some point said the 3 cup doesn't make quite as good rice as the 5.5 cup version. I don't know if that's true but it always struck fear in me.

Unless you have a big family or are eating way too much rice/carbs, I recommend holding out for the 5.5 or maybe 3 cup version. It's easy to click and buy this, then have a giant rice cooker on your counter forever, or lug a giant rice cooker on and off the counter.\

......

That all said, does anyone know if the fancy expensive Zojirushis (or other brands) make passable sushi rice? All I need is 'decent' sushi rice. The fancy ones have a 'sushi' setting, but never heard anyone talk about the results, ever.
Your pressure cooker almost certainly does not cook rice perfectly. It might make rice that you're happy with. It might make decent rice quickly. It might be convenient to not have a dedicated rice cooker. But it is not making perfectly cooked rice

I just bought the Zojirushi NS-ZCC18 one hour ago. Should I buy this instead?

Checking out now. Cancelled the other order. Price point at this price is worth the additional/marginal cost vs features. Thanks

I read a comment on the Zoji youtube video that said this unit is 99% identical to NP-NWC10 / NP-NWC18 but without the IH pressure cooking technology. You are paying $200 more (today's sale price) for the (10-cup) pressure cooking feature. I would spend that extra on an Instapot or comparable for dedicated pressure cooking.

I have the 5.5c white version. It's great. The umami setting takes a long time, but it produces really good rice. And since it stays good for 3+ days, you can start it in the morning and not worry about how long it takes. Not sure how much extra umami it gets you. I add MSG to the pot before cooking and it comes out sooooooo good.

Wish the 5.5 cup version was on sale. It cost more at $259.99.
Would return this Amazon Basic 5.5 cup version I bought last week. But works ok so far and good for the price.

Not saying what is better because I wouldn't know, but I do know my pressure cooker cooks rice perfectly and also, well, cooks a bunch of other stuff. I don't see why you'd get this if you didn't have either. That's just my uninformed opinion though.

I've tried multiple rice cookers but none of them seems to handle long-grain rice like Basmati.

I have had an Instant Pot, old school Tatung rice cookers, cheap rice cookers, and a Zojirushi NP-HCC10. I eat rice almost everyday including white rice, sushi rice, brown rice, and gaba brown rice, and rice porridge. Zojirushi makes the best rice, and it's not even close especially if you are a fan of brown rice or gaba brown rice. I've owned my Zojirushi for about 6 months and never regret it.
