Zojirushi NP-HCC10XH Rice Cooker
|Product Name:||NP-HBC10 Rice Cooker|
Zojirushi’s trademark excellence and top-quality presented in a deluxe multipurpose cooker
As far rice cooking goes Zojirushi is one name many rice lovers have come to associate with excellence and top-tier quality. The Zojirushi NP-HXX10XH rice cooker is the Japanese company’s multipurpose cooker, designed to cater for any style, specification, and volume of rice cooking.
The Zojirushi NP-HXX10XH rice cooker is an Induction rice cooker. What this means is that unlike conventional rice cookers which house a base heating element, the Zojirushi rice cooker cooks rice by induction – delivering heat to the base and sides of the pot simultaneously. By virtue of this configuration, the NP-hXX10XH cooks rice evenly; is capable of making precise temperature adjustments; and possesses greater energy efficiency than the average rice cooker.
As an added incentive Zojirushi offers prospective buyers a 1-year limited warranty. If the Zojirushi NP-HXX10XH rice cooker develops any faults within this period (which seems very unlikely given the first impressions this cooker makes), you can send it back to the manufacturer for repairs.
What we liked
Zojirushi’s signature line of custom cook modes
In the hyperactive market of rice cookers today, most manufacturers see the number of features a rice cooker has, as a measure of its value. As a result, many do their best to cram as much cook modes/features into a single rice cooker to gain competitive advantage. In the end, however, most of these cookers turn out to be the proverbial jack of all trades and master of none. Of all the brands we’ve reviewed, Zojirushi triumphs as one of the very few manufacturers that has managed to find that sweet spot between versatility and effectiveness. The Zojirushi NP-HXX10XH rice cooker is a star performer in all varieties of rice cooking; from white, sushi, brown, jasmine or even porridge rice, rest assured that in each instance you’re getting fluffy, well-cooked rice that’s sure to titillate your taste buds. Zojirushi even goes a step further to equip the Zojirushi rice cooker with a delay timer and auto keep warm setting all geared towards making the cooking process as convenient as is possible
One model, differ sizes
Ever read through a rice cooker review, fell in love with the rice cooker in question, only to discover at the tail end that the manufacturers felt it’d be best to limit its size to 3 cups uncooked – if you’re a rice enthusiast like us, you’re all too familiar with this scenario. Good news is Zojirushi doesn’t disappoint in this regard. The Zojirushi NP-HXX10XH rice cooker comes in two size variations; 1 liter to cater for the rice needs of a bachelor/spinster or small family and 1.8 liters for larger families.
Premium Build quality
One look at the Zojirushi rice cooker and you understand why this cooker costs $245. If we are being fair, premium is a weak adjective to use in describing the NP-HXX10XH. Complete with a brushed aluminum finish, detachable lid, movable handle, a futuristic display console and a minimalist build the Zojirushi NP-HXX10XH rice cooker is nothing short of spectacular. The cooker features a stylish grey color tone and yellow accents that make it the perfect complement to the 21st-century kitchen.
What we didn’t like
We’re tempted to list the Zojirushi NP-HXX10XH rice cooker’s $245 price tag as overly expensive, but after reviewing this unit and seeing what it brings to the rice cooking table, it’s safe to say that it is worth every penny spent. That said, if you’re working on a budget then, the Zojirushi rice cooker might not be the best choice.
