this is one of the best rice cooker brand in Korea. Not sure how costco can sell these for $129 as H mart / Hannam sells these for over $300. maybe this is previous gen. but def. recommend this. we switched to another brand called Cuchen but not satisfying in terms of keeping rice warm for few days. Cuckoo keeps it fresh and warm much better and longer.

Tiger? No way... Maybe Zojirushi could have some chance. Cuckoo is another level.

Wouldn't this micom be better for just $10 more? Looks better soon, and save some counter space.

Umm because this is one of the more basic/entry model? Just like how you can find $500+ Zojirushi with induction heating, while you can also find a lot of sub $150 models.

I bought this rice cooker from Costco the last time it was on sale. It works great and the timer function is so convenient. One thing of note, the LCD screen is powered by an internal battery ie it stays on even when not plugged in (I guess for power outages??). If that battery dies, it's a real pain to replace it because you basically need to dismantle the whole thing. Mine is still new so haven't run into this problem yet.

I bought a used one years ago and absolutely love it. Well worth the money. Tempted to buy a new one as the battery is dead and inner pot is scratched up.
Id say pair with a 5 year warranty, but it likely takes longer before the battery dies.

You can always replace the inner pot with a new one if you're willing to keep your current one. Cuckoo Canada sells the units themselves and the accessories such as inner pots and rubber packings (they're supposed to be replaced every 6 months or a year, I can't remember for sure)

Besides, the display's clock isn't all that important, at least to me. I had a unit for around 7 years and the display kept going, through out 3 moves and countless blackouts.

Thanks. The display definitely isn't a worry. My thinking is it'd be cheaper to sell this old one and buy a new one than to just buy a replacement inner pot.

Does zojirushi sell replacement parts too.?
Looking for a 3 cup insert replacement. I wonder if the cuckoo one fits zojirushi.

300+ ones are pressure cookers. Without pressure, the price is about 150.

I showed my wife (Korean) she said this is not a good model. Can't remember what it was, maybe no pressure cooker settings? but her group of "Korean mom friends" were all talking about it and said don't buy it, for Korean style rice it is essential.

We ended up getting a pressure cuckoo from Galleria for $380.

Personally I think it tastes just slightly better than our zojiroshi we had before which worked fine, just had a bad inner pot.

Do I care?
It's non-pressurized model at correct price.

Pressurized models cook slightly quicker and taste tiny bit better, but unless you use it all the time you may not care. Taste is like splitting 8/10 and 9/10 rating between models so not a major difference.

For those wanting that extra benefit, I've seen pressurized ones for $250 and under. You don't need fancy displays and 50 buttons, you just need it pressurized for next step up.

Pressure ones are much more expensive but if you eat rice a lot it’s worth every penny. Personally pressure cooked rice tastes much better. It also takes half the time to cook vs a regular ones.

My mom has a similar model 0631F (I think it's the same as the one in the OP just a different color) and TBH I'm pretty disappointed with the quality of rice this produces, it definitely could also be that I have grown accustomed to better rice and am now a rice snob.

retractable cord should be standard for everything...its something you don't realize how much you appreciate till you had it

I've always had a pressure cooker as it is the more superior one to the none pressured one.

As NogardMX said, if you're eating rice everyday, it's worth every penny. The one I got, this one can cook 5 cups of rice in under 20 mins, or under 15 mins in turbo mode, and keeps it warm for days (althought it's recommended you eat it in next day or two for better taste, but stale rice is good for stir frying, IMO)
