The official name of my new beloved is the “Zojirushi 5-1/2-Cup Neuro Fuzzy Rice Cooker and Warmer” — but I call it my best friend forever!
If you want to eat healthy, you know brown rice is the best rice. It fills you up and it cleans you out. Brown rice can be tedious to cook and really messy to boil if you don’t have the right dedicated cooker on hand:
The Zojirushi is forgiving and kind. You can use too much water or not
enough water and the machine will compensate for your inability to read
the perfectly pre-measured fill lines printed on the Teflon-coated pot.
Cooking three cups of brown rice takes about 2 hours with this machine.
The beauty part is — when all the cooking and eating is done you can
save your leftover rice and warm it up the next day in the Zojirushi in
just a few minutes using the “Reheat” setting.
If you plan it right, you can cook all your rice for the week in one
big stew session and then just reheat what you eat each day. Reheated
rice in this machine tastes incredibly good!
This kind of convenience isn’t cheap. The Five Cup Zojirushi will run
you around $180.00 USD on the discount selling sites — but for those who crave and need brown rice, you quickly realize that money is well spent to bring home the little brown Gods inside you on a daily basis.
Here are some specs for you:
- 5-1/2-cup computerized rice cooker and warmer with advanced Neuro Fuzzy logic technology
- Multi-menu selections; automatic keep-warm, extended keep-warm, and reheat cycles
- Spherical, nonstick inner pan allows for spherical heating; LCD clock and timer; retractable cord
- 2 measuring cups, nonstick rice spoon/scooper, rice spoon holder, and recipes included
- Measures approximately 14 by 8 by 9 inches; 1-year limited warranty
The Zojirushi Brown Rice Cooker is killer — and you can cook white
rice, sweet rice, sushi rice, semi-brown rice and porridge as well if
you must – but the Zojirushi best slays those brown nuggets of gold for
you and happily presents them hot and sticky for the delicious eating.
Have you ever eaten brown rice? If yes, did you take to it right away
or did you have a period of adjustment? If not, why not?
