“Rolls Royce of Rice Cookers”
Zojirushi NP-NVC10 represents the crème de la crème of rice cookers today. It is way ahead of any competitor in terms of technology and innovation. This luxury high-end model from Zojirushi makes perfect rice every time.
You may ask why anyone with a pot and a stove needs such an expensive rice cooker. After all, it is just a rice cooker. However, comparing Zojirushi Induction Heating Rice Cooker with an ordinary rice cooker is like comparing a Ferrari to a Ford Pinto. This Zojirushi rice cooker says goodbye to the old way of cooking rice (resistive heating element) and employs the newest revolution in rice cooking – pressure inductive heating.
Technology Behind This Smart Rice Cooker – Pressure Induction Heating with Fuzzy Logic and Artificial Intelligence
Pressure Heating – This is the technology that sets it apart from other rice cookers. Pressure heating turns beta starch into alpha starch which produces softer rice that’s easier to digest. Also, rice cooked under pressure stays softer longer after cooking.
Induction Heating – Traditional cookers use one resistive heating element on the bottom of the pot, so there is no even heating. The bottom may end up burnt or mushy, the middle just right, and the top a bit dry and undercooked. In an Inductive heating rice cooker, inductive magnetic coils are present in the walls of the cooker. Therefore, the heat is conducted more evenly and rice is cooked from all sides.
Fuzzy Logic + Artificial Intelligence – Zojirushi NP-NVC10 uses fuzzy logic and AI. In layman’s terms, this thinks like a real cook. . It uses its senses to observe the rice as it cooks, adjusting for it type and volume, and intervenes by changing the time and temperature when necessary. This means you will get fluffy and soft rice every time even if you haven’t got the measurements exactly right.
Colored LCD screen with timer – The LCD screen on the front of machine has a comprehensive number of presets including white rice (regular, soft or firm texture), brown rice, GABA rice (germinated brown rice), sushi/sweet rice, porridge etc. This makes everything very simple – just touch it and you are done. Moreover, there is a timer. You can schedule it to cook an hour before waking up in the morning. It will automatically switch to the Keep Warm option when cooking is completed.
- Uses best heating technologies to date – You will consistently get fluffy and soft rice.
- One-touch LCD with Comprehensive Menu – You can cook a variety of rice.
- Timer – Schedule whenever you want
- Keep Warm feature – Keeps rice warm after cooking is finished.
- It comes with a 1-year warranty only. Even though it is built to last for a long time, I wish the warranty was longer for peace of mind.
This is a smart rice cooker that uses cutting-edge technologies. It’s certainly not cheap, but if money isn’t a concern, then you won’t mind paying for all of this awesomeness!
