[Amazon Canada] Zojirushi NP-NVC10 Induction Heating Pressure Rice Cooker 5.5 Cups (Made in Japan) - $458.99

This one is a step up from the NP-HCC10 posted - induction and pressure cooking function. Lowest price according to the humped animal.

I'm sure there's going to be a wall of responses about this vs. some $20 Salton. If you have to ask, stick with the Salton. We eat rice all the time, there is a significant difference in taste, texture and smell including the fridge leftovers the next day. We have this in our home and it is worth the cost for us.

Great price, this is about as low as it gets. I bought mine at the bay for a similar price last year during one of the 15% off sales.

A word of caution, the minimum amount of time this takes to make rice is just a few minutes more than an hour. You will be making perfect rice every time in this, but you can get very good rice in a cooker that costs hundreds of dollars less in half the time.

I learned is that it is not recommended cooking foods like beans and mushy foods like oatmeal in this particular unit because it messes with the pressure cooker part of the machine.
Two other things to note are the battery in the unit (powering the display) is not user replaceable and the unit will need to be sent in to zoji for replacement, and the unit makes weird buzzing when on the keep warm setting.

If all of these issues are things you can live with in exchange for perfect rice, then this is for you. It is one of the best machines sold in the North American market (JDM rice cookers are still on another level).


EDIT: Some limitations of this machine taken from the manual

you cant go wrong with this brand, Zojirushi. I would agree with OP that the quality is into every grain of rice.

the only question I have is, is there a significant benefit adding pressure cooking? I am using the IH model right now.

Thanks OP! Bit the bullet and went for the 1.8L. Been waiting for them to have a decent sale.

Is there something like this, for rice, but without the non-stick cooking surface? So I guess stick cooking surface :)
From the Zojirushi site it looks like all their non-conventional cookers use non-stick.

we use the conventional cooker now but are interested in the smart, pressure cookers

ok, question here. I'm not questioning the purchase of a 400$+ rice cooker, but what i am questioning is which rice do you cook in these in order to get the benefit? I'm pretty sure it's not Uncle Ben rice :)

Is it? In Japan, top end models sell for $1000+.

This is just mid-range...not getting into the high-end just yet.
