If you only cook 1 or 2 bowls of rice at a time, is it worse inside a 10 cup cooker than a 5 cup cooker?

[...] Rice cookers are in most Asian households and super useful IMO.

Also I’m pretty sure this is Made in Japan.

It's sad when entire rice cookers are cheaper than replacing the pot used in them.

I have many rice cookers that still work but the teflon lining in the pot is peeling off after about 5 years. I called their HQ to order a replacement and it was always in the low hundreds before shipping. It feels wasteful but it was always cheaper to just buy an entire new rice cooker, even the same model!

In rice cookers like this, Zojirushi or Tiger, etc, a "cup" is actually 180ml. It will come with a cup that size, to measure. So in a "10 cup" rice cooker you can cook 1.8l of white rice and fill water to the 10 line. That's a lot of rice, it triples in volume. You may need that much room for cooking other things like beans and steel cut oatmeal in it, where you have to add 3x the volume of water.

Edit- 180ml not 2/3 cup... thanks to the person that replied and corrected me

Yup. The measuring cup they include with Japanese rice cookers is a 180ml one (US cup = 240ml, Canadian cup = 250ml).
A standard Japanese cup measure is 200 cc. This is about five-sixths of a standard American cup. Don’t, however, get this confused with the cup measure used in your rice cooker. This is calibrated to the old Japanese system — called a go (ichi-go, ni-go, etc.) — in which one cup is just 180 cc. In this old measuring system — often still used in professional kitchens — 10 go equal 1 sho (1.8 liters), the size of a standard bottle of nihon-shu (Japanese sake). From this, the bottle size takes the name isshobin.

I have been wanting to buy a Tiger or Zojirushi rice cooker and the Teflon lining is the #1 reason I haven't bought one. In my experience, the lining peels off after a few years.
I use an Instant Pot now to cook rice, no Teflon lining.
Fully agree with you.

I got a 4 cup rice cooker from the 80s. I'm not hugely afraid of the teflon, but I don't want to buy a new piece every couple of years. If you like products made in one country over another, then this Tiger might not be for you. Mine only has two settings and is made in Taiwan (Good China, not bad China).

I assume the Chinese Tiger QC team has been taught by people at corporate, similar to how the Toyota plants in Ontario are not disconnected from corporate.

To be fair, it took about 5 years and that's with daily use. I do prefer the convenience of a dedicated rice cooker that I can set and forget, especially one with micom.

As per comments on Amazon, it is made from China.

I doubt there is a ricecooker with the similar function selling under $150, let alone under $100, cook 10 cups and made in Japan.

From my experience. Yes it is. Better to go with a smaller cooker if you are making 1 or 2 bowls at a time.

Costco has a Panasonic rice cooker at $99.99. Member may wish to compare the two if one's budget is at sub $100.
