Have you seen the Zojirushi NP-GBC05? It is the smartest 3 cup rice cooker. I love this little cooker but I don’t love the price. It is pretty expensive I just noticed a Youtube video about this Zojirushi rice cooker which you might enjoy
Zojirushi make lots of different rice cookers which they sell in the States. They have even more models in Japan. Oh yeah, in case you don’t know, Zojirushi are from Japan. Do you know what Zojirushi means? Zo in Japanese means elephant and jirushi is the word from brand. So Zojirushi = Elephant Brand.
Like I said, there are loads of these funky Zojirushi rice cookers for us to get. This is so cool. Cooking rice without a rice cooker is one option but it’s much easier if we just get with the program and buy ourselves a neat little machine. It makes things so much easier on ourselves!
If you look at the Zojirushi product info they talk about all the technology. This compact rice cooker has Micom and Induction Heating. But as you know, I am mostly interested in recipes. I can eat rice every day but there has to be some variety. So this NP-GBC05 is pretty neat coz it comes with some recipes in the manual. There are not many but it is good to get an idea of what you can do. If you want more ideas for your Zojirushi NP-GBC05 you can find lots of suggestions on my site. Hint, hint! There are books too. One that I am going to add a review for soon is The Ultimate Rice Cooker Cookbook by Beth Hensperger and Julie Kaufmann. There are hundreds of yummy things this book tells you about. It is much cheaper than a rice cooker too!
What else does the Zojirushi NP-GBC05 have? Oh yeah, non-stick cooking pan, this is standard. The pot has markings on the sides for how much water to add, this is standard too. The inner lid un-clips. This is good for cleaning and you can let it soak if you cook with smelly things like garlic, onions and stock cubes. Lots of programmable cooking options. Yeah, if you are a health freak…or just want to be healthy, you can use the GABA brown rice program. This is super healthy brown rice. Try it, yummy! Haha, I forgot to say, this size is best for loners. If you have a family you gotta get a bigger rice cooker!
