At first glance, I thought this was EA trying to earn some money back on their golf games... :lol:

The company is Japanese, but the rice cooker itself is made in China - confirmed this at my nearest WM. Tiger makes some of their products in Japan, but not all.

The lower end Tiger ones are from China I read somewhere.
Tiger is a classic Asian brand rice cooker. Most asian homes had a Tiger or National brand cooker probably 15 years ago before panasonics started flooding the market.

If I remember correctly National is part of Panasonic and its known quality brand. Thanks for the info about 'Tiger' brand.

You kidding me. For rice cooker, Tiger is one of the best brand in the world, at least much better brand than Panasonic.

If it's IH version and made in japan, this price would be a steal.

Here is some price reference for a typical Tiger Rice Cooker (IH) version.

My Tiger is 11 years and still going. the inside is starting to peel off a bit.

Mind you there is nothing much to break in a rice cooker

Just in time as I'm searching for a new one. Got one from Souffville Supercentre. It's the last one on shelf. Not sure if there is any more in the back. Used it for dinner and the rice tasted good.

Tiger cookers from Walmart are made in China. The ones made Japan are the good ones, the 10-cups cooker made on Japan costs over $150. I have 10-cups (model JPN-1500) for over 10 years but the inner pot bottom starting to get scratches. I ordered this one, Zojirushi, from Amazon.ca as new replacement. There are 3 big reliable cookers from Japan: Tiger, Zojirushi, Panasonic/National. They are expensive but reliable.

We tend to replace our rice cooker every 3 years or so. And we always been using Tiger (made in Japan) ones. We replace them just to freshen up, not cuz they break... They are usually $150+ at local Chinese electronic. I think at $68, we could give these Chinese-made a try

replace just to freshen up? lol... That's high class rice cooking. That doesn't sound very asian thing to do at $150 a pop.

I don't know much about rice cookers. We have a Rival 5.5 cup and it's more than enough for the three of us (2 adults and one child). The non-stick of the pan has seen better days so I consider replacing it with a better quality cooker. We normally put 1.5 cup (came with the cooker) of raw rice into the rice cooker. Is a 10-cup an overkill?

10-cup is overkill. I have one of those and min. is 2 cups. That is why I am getting 5.5-cup cooker.
