Both the Panasonic SR-MS102 and Zojirushi NS-TGC10 are high quality Japanese rice cookers. Neither is a top of the range product but they are both Micom machines that can make great tasting rice. They are in the same price range so you may wonder whether either one of these machines is more suited to your specific needs.

To begin with they are both mid-sized rice cookers. They can make rice for up to ten people at once. So they are a good size for families. So the question is, should you buy a Panasonic SR-MS102 or purchase a Zojirushi NS-TGC10? This really comes down to your own personal preference. There are differences as well as many similarities. In this comparison review I shall try to highlight both where they are the same and where the differ.

Interestingly enough both of these rice cookers can be used to make cakes. Not all that many machines have this setting so it is somewhat rare to have two machines in the same class with this function. To be honest, the Panasonic model has a wider range of settings to cook different types of foods. It has a slow cooker setting and also comes with a steamer tray. The Zojirushi on the other hand has primarily, rice cooking options.

The Panasonic SR-MS102 is an advanced Micom rice cooker with Fuzzy Logic. Whereas the Zojirushi is a standard Micro Computerized (Micom) rice cooker. So far it seems like the Panasonic is the better buy because it has more functions and an advanced Micom chip set. However the trump card of the NS-TGC10 is that it is made by Zojirushi. While both companies are Japanese, it is Zojirushi that has a stronger reputation in their home country for manufacturing the best rice cookers.

I personally use a Zojirushi rice cooker so my opinion is somewhat biased. But it is an interesting conundrum as to whether to go with the company with the reputation or for the machine with more features.

Regardless of which one you are interested in, Amazon has the lowest prices online for both the Panasonic SR-MS102 and Zojirushi NS-TGC10 rice cookers.
