About


My name is Andrew Cowan. Almost 10 years ago, I moved to Japan and since then have become fascinated with the various ways to cook and eat rice. I love eating rice and want to spread the word that it is both tasty and good for our health. There are rice cookers to suit any budget. Please take a look around the site and see which one you like best. Since moving to Japan, I have used a host of different rice cookers. Please leave a comment if your specific issue/query is not addressed.

The rice cooker that I currently use is a Zojirushi NP-GD05. This is a model sold only in Japan. If you want the American version you should buy a Zojirushi NP-GBC05. You can read more about my rice cooker here.

My rice cooker is the one on the left, the American model is on the right. They are basically the same machine except one has buttons in Japanese and the other in English.

I now offer a service that allows you to order a genuine Japanese rice cooker direct from Japan.
