Comments about Zojirushi NS-RNC-18 10-Cup Rice Cooker:

Rice is my absolute favorite food ever, so when I received the Zojirushi ten cup rice cooker for my birthday a few years ago, I was ecstatic! I use it practically every single day! It is very durable and will last you years. It may just be the only rice cooker you will ever need! The controls are very basic and easy to operate. Maintenance is easy, it is very easy to clean. Out of all my kitchen appliances, and I have a lot, I would have to say my Zojirushi Rice Cooker is my all time favorite. It holds ten cups so you can cook enough rice for a large family in it. It is great if you put rice in casseroles too, you can cook your rice in this while you are doing other things. You do not have to worry about the rice sticking to the bottom of the cooker. Not to mention, the rice is just great! It tastes just like Peking's! You can make virtually any kind of rice in it. It is great for large quantities and for beginner cooks as well!

This rice cooker has been in my family since I was a child

By 

from Stroudsburg, PA

Comments about Zojirushi NS-RNC-18 10-Cup Rice Cooker:

This rice cooker has been in my family for MANY, MANY years. We've probably had it since I was a child (maybe even before I was born) and now that I'm an adult I use it all the time. I have never had any problems with it, and I have never had to replace it. I prefer using a rice cooker over making rice on the stove because the rice cooker is safer. It tells you when the rice is finished cooking and keeps it warm while you are waiting for the rest of your dinner to be done. I also like it because you can make larger amounts of rice without it being a pain. You can make any kind of rice in this rice cooker, and it comes out tasting delicious and perfect every time. The rice never gets stuck and burnt to the rice cooker which is also great as well. I think this rice cooker will last me for the rest of my life if I'm lucky.

I would definitely recommend picking up this rice cooker. It will last forever and it makes cooking rice very easy.

Performance
It makes perfect rice every time, and I never have to worry about my rice getting cold. It's amazing, and If anything every happened to it I would definitely buy another one.

Ease of Cleaning
I like using this rice cooker because its so simple to clean. You just take the insert out and wash it clean. I never have any problems with rice sticking to the rice cooker or getting burnt so I really just rinse it clean with some soap and a sponge. It literally only takes a minute.

Ease of Use
It's so easy to use. You just add the preferred amount of rice you want, water, close the top, and that's it. It'll tell you when it's done. When the rice is done it will just sit in the rice cooker, and keep itself warm until you are ready to eat.

Durability
It has to be pretty durable since it's been in my family for about 24 years. It's never broke, and we've never had any problems with it. It still looks brand new like the day we bought it.

Design
It's a very simple rice cooker. I'm not a huge fan of the design. I'd rather it would have been all completely white or even black without the flowers but it's not a huge deal. I keep it under the counter when I'm not using it so the design doesn't really matter much to me.

An excellent, high-quality rice cooker.

Comments about Zojirushi NS-RNC-18 10-Cup Rice Cooker:

The Zojirushi Rice Cooker is a spacious, easy-to-operate rice cooker that delivers fresh, hot, steamy, soft rice (yum!). It is extremely easy to use - all that an individual must do to use it is pour rice in, add a corresponding amount of water (about twice the height of the rice), and flip the switch on the cooker to begin the cooking process. It takes about half an hour for the cooker to complete its job......and voila! You have some delicious, hot-and-steamy rice. It is convenient, easy to use, and an essential tool for nearly every kitchen. I cook a lot of asian cuisine, and rice is an absolute must for any meal. I use this rice cooker every single day, and it is absolutely fantastic - I highly recommend it to anyone that is looking for a high quality rice cooker.

Performance
In just thirty minutes, this rice cooker will make you some nice hot rice. It does pretty much all of the work for you.

Ease of Cleaning
It is quite easy to clean. It is a bit large, so be careful not to drop it while using detergent to scrub it clean. Rinse it with water.

Very Awesome Rice Cooker

Comments about Zojirushi NS-RNC-18 10-Cup Rice Cooker:

I've had this rice cooker since I was a little kid, and I've replaced it once to buy a new one. I can't think of any other rice cooker that could have such great durability, as well as a sleek and sophisticated design With just one batch, I'm able to feed my 4-person family for the whole day, and we all have rice- around 2 bowls each! The ZOjirushi-NS-RNC-18-10 Cup Rice Cooker cooks the rice very well, and it always end up perfect. It's super easy to learn how to cook the rice and it's perfect for any kind of rice. I've cooked both brown and white rice, and they both turn out great! Cleaning can be a hassle sometimes depending on the rice, but otherwise, I have no complaints! The price is a bit expensive than some other rice cookers on the market, but the Zojirushi lasts long, does its job to perfection, and is my choice for the rest of my life. I can't imagine looking anywhere else.

The 10 Cups lets you know how big of a batch it can handle, and all I can say to sum it up is the Zojirushi has made my life so much easier with rice cooking. I can easily feed my family with little hassle, and I know I can trust Zojirushi to be there when I need it.

Zojirushi NS-RNC-18 makes perfect rice every time!

By 

from USA

Comments about Zojirushi NS-RNC-18 10-Cup Rice Cooker:

My Zojirushi NS-RNC-18 10-cut rice cooker makes perfect rice every time! It is fool-proof!

I have had this rice cooker for several years. It makes from 1 cup to 10 cups perfectly, and keeps the rice warm and fresh for up to about 24 hours.

I bought this rice cooker to replace my first Zojirushi cooker that I used for about 8 to 10 years. We cook rice about 5 nights per week, so we really do put these rice cookers to the test! And they have really held up!

Performance
If the correct amount of water is used, the Zojirushi cannot fail! All I do is measure the correct amounts of rice and water, then push the button.

My mother always taught us to "wash" the rice before cooking. I think that is from the "old days" when rice was covered with talc. But that is not necessary anymore.

Ease of Cleaning
Typically, all I have to do is rinse out the pot with a little soap and a sponge. I toss everything in the dishwasher every once in a while. Couldn't be easier.

Ease of Use
Rice, water, button...

Durability
My first Zojirushi lasted about 10 years. My current one is about 3 or 4 years old. And my rice cookers get a LOT Of use!!

Design
I like the looks of it. I like that the lid is on a hinge rather than removable.

Fairly priced and cooks a ton of rice!

Comments about Zojirushi NS-RNC-18 10-Cup Rice Cooker:

Whenever I cook, I cook for a huge audience and so I needed a rice cooker that can handle a lot of cups of rice. This machine does this job perfectly. The rice is never undercooked or overcooked. Also, even when I cook about 10 cups of rice, it does not take very long and the rice is ready in no time. The color is neutral and modern-looking and so blends in easily with any kitchen . My favorite part is the minimal sticking of the rice to the bottom which is such a hassle to clean. This never happens with this rice cooker.

Comments about Zojirushi NS-RNC-18 10-Cup Rice Cooker:

I needed a new rice cooker so I bought the Zojirushi NS-RNC-18 10-Cup Rice Cooker about a few weeks ago. This rice cooker has such a pretty and simple design on the front (a flower). This rice cooker cooks a lot of rice, (up to 10 cups) so you don't have to cook it separate times if you have a lot of people coming over. The Zojirushi Rice Cooker cooks the rice perfectly. Being of Asian descent, rice is pretty much a must in our house. As a result, this rice cooker is the perfect recipe for fantastic rice. It is also easy to handle and understand. The rice cooker is also simple to clean. Although I didn't have the Zojirushi Rice Cooker for a very long time, I still think that it will be durable and will last me a very long time. As a result, I am extremely satisfied with my purchase of the Zojirushi 10-Cup Rice Cooker because it does the job well and efficiently. Excellent rice cooker product!! :D

Number one rice cooker, Only brand I will ever own.

By 

from USA

Comments about Zojirushi NS-RNC-18 10-Cup Rice Cooker:

This is one of the best rice cookers on the market. It is the highest quality and large enough to cook for a large crowd, 2 people or a large family. It easily cooks with the push of a button and then holds for hours, keeping the rice moist and hot. It is fast and makes perfect rice every time. White rice, Black rice, brown rice, sticky rice, sweet rice....you name it, it makes it. The cook and hold option is fantastic, you turn it on and walk away with no worries.

Performance
Easy to use, measure, close, one button push cook and it is done in a reasonable amount of time, perfectly. I like that you can get other things done and not worry about burning your rice or make the rice hours in advance and go to the kids soccer game.

Ease of Cleaning
It cleans very easily. The inside rice pan comes out and it is teflon lined, be sure to use a plastic rice spoon to serve and it will last years. the top lid comes out easily for cleaning and the catch piece on the back of the lid easily comes off for cleaning.

Ease of Use
How much easier can it be, You measure your rice and water then close the lid and push the cook button, when the button clicks over to warm and the warm light comes on, the rice is done and can sit for hours until you want to eat.

Durability
This is my second Zojirushi in 2 decades. I use my rice cooker almost daily and I amazed at how long the first one (I bought second hand) lasted. I did not have an instruction booklet and would submerge the lid/top completely in water, it eventually ruined the inside wiring and insulation, it was completely my fault and I am sure it would have lasted years longer had I not ruined it. My new (8 years old) Zojirushi still runs like a champ and I expect to get many more years from it.

Design
This is a simple rice cooker, easy to use, one button to push, the design is simple also, One big removable inner basket with a lid for easy cleanup. It can make 2 cups or 10 cups and it all comes out just as good for any amount each time.

Older style, but much more simple.

Comments about Zojirushi NS-RNC-18 10-Cup Rice Cooker:

Everyone knows that Zojirushi rice cookers cook the best fluffy white rice. No other cooker measures up to the quality of rice that comes out of a Zojirushi. This Japanese brand is certainly not cheap, but you will find that every Asian person that eats rice will have one. This model is one of the older models. It does not have the complicated digital options, but cooks rice very well. With this rice cooker, all you need to do is wash your rice and put it in the cooking chamber with water and push one switch. You rice will cook to a perfect fluffy consistency. If you do not normally cook rice you may be confused by the many options that the electronic cookers have. This cooker is best for beginners. It is a simple rice cooker that does what you need it to do. This rice cooker can cook rice for a family of 8 people. I've used this cooker for 5 years before I switched to a digital one and it still works perfectly.
