Many dishes being cooked today include rice. It may be served as a side dish or as a part of the main dish, but the requirement of rice with food is increasing. The increase in the need for rice has brought about a need for the rice to be cooked perfectly. One who cooks knows for sure that cooking rice with the right amount of water and salt is not easy. The process of making it in a pan can very easily cause lumps and the rice to become sticky. This is the reason why people prefer to cook their rice in actual rice cookers and eliminate the pending disasters of cooking rice. The Zojirushi NSRNC18FZ is an electric rice cooker that not only cooks fluffy, soft rice but also keeps it warm and makes sure that it does not turn brown.
Zojirushi NSRNC18FZ Review
Design and Features
This rice cooker is one of the simplest forms of rice cookers. It does not come with an array of functions but just one simple switch that you turn on once you have kept your rice and water inside. Once the switch has been turned on, the cooker starts and cooks the rice at the required time and temperature.
Though this style of rice cooker does not come with many functions, it does come with a keep warm option that allows the rice to stay warm for around 12 hours.
The handle on top of the cooker allows for easy opening of the cooker. It also helps in closing the cooker tightly so that no pressure of the steam escapes while cooking and it cooks the rice through and through. It also comes with a detachable lid and inner lid, which makes cleaning it a whole lot easier. The retractable power cord is one advantageous feature as moving and storing the cooker becomes relatively easier without the worry of damaging the cord.
Performance and Quality
Since it is solely dedicated to the purpose of cooking rice, it cooks it very well without any sticking. It cooks the rice quickly and it is very simple to use as there are no added buttons or functions to play with. The warmer keeps the rice nice and warm. It also prevents the rice from turning yellow or brown and does not allow the rice to turn crispy for a longer period of time.
The cooker, though durable, is made of plastic material. The look of the cooker gives it a very old fashioned appearance but is very simple and easy to use by anyone. No instruction manual or navigation is required.
