Excellent, smaller rice cooker. Perfect rice every time, 5 minutes to prep and 5 minutes to clean. I use it daily and it's one of the best appliances I've ever purchased.

I make and eat rice almost daily. I haven't noticed any difference between this model (which my parents own) and my own rice cooker I got from Costco for $40 bucks. The consistency is the same, cooking time is the same, cleanup is the same - the only difference I'm seeing is the price.

For what it's worth, I only cook jasmine rice. Just my two cents.

We have all three sizes - 3-cup, 5.5-cup and 10-cup... The 3-cup is significantly smaller than the 5.5-cup, and the 5.5-cup is a little smaller than the 10-cup...

The 3-cup is the one that we use regularly... oatmeal in the morning... rice 3-4 times a week in the evening... for a family of 4 (2 adults, 2 kids) it is the perfect size...

We bought the 3-cup four years ago - never had an issue... and yes we have the induction heating model... Paid $230 on Amazon, so this is a great value for this model... Thumbs up!

Haha 3 Cups!? Does this take up less room on the counter or is it about the same size as 5 cup Zojirushis?

I have the non-induction 3-cup from them and love it. For two I rarely make more then a cup (uncooked) at a time. That's enough for two Donburi bowls....

It's pretty small - maybe 9x12

Is Zojirushi truly so much better than every other brand when it comes to cooking rice?

Yes. I use to have a Tiger cooker and didn't think a Zoji would make much difference. There was a noticeable difference. The one I have is just fuzzy logic. The induction one would make a difference especially on brown rice. I've also made porridge and cake with it and they turn out great.

Great cooker, had it for about a year and any rice ive put in it has come out perfect. The GABA brown rice setting is also great. 3 cups is enough for 4 people too.

It's nice to hear when others use their Zoji for more than just rice. I also make porridge and it turns out great. I have a Neuro Fuzzy but the bowl is starting to peal.

Does anyone know where I could buy another bowl for a decent price?

I've had my Zojirushi for about 13yrs now. I've never had an issue and it still makes perfect rice every time.

Hmmm choices. I think I've seen the 10 cup posted here for like 50 bucks more. I feel like that is a better value, but certainly it is a larger cooker.

Yeah, Jasmine rice is pretty easy to cook so once you have the process down most rice cookers should be able to cook it properly. I have the induction cooker with pressure and it's great. The only downside with having the pressure function is that you cannot cook oatmeal and make cake in it.

This deal is pretty solid if you don't eat too much rice. For a typical rice eating Asian family I would recommend the 5.5 cup as the minimum.
