Sanyo ECJ-JG10WZojirushi NP-HTC10

Both the Sanyo ECJ-JG10W and Zojirushi NP-HTC10 are 5 1/2 cup rice cookers. They are the most expensive model of machine in both Zojirushi and Sanyo’s product line up of rice cookers that are sold in the United States and Canada. If you want to buy the best rice cooker then if you can afford it, one of these machines may well be what you need. You can find the lowest prices for these two machines on Amazon. They are offering a sustantial discount on the price for the Sanyo ECJ-JG10W that is being offered on Sanyo’s own U.S. website. So if you want the best prices online then Amazon is a good place to start your search. Finding a better deal may be hard.

Both of these appliances are have the same capacity. If you want a bigger rice cooker that has both Induction Heating and Variable Pressure Control then the only option is to buy a Zojirushi NP-HTC18. Sanyo do not have a larger capacity cooker is this range. As you would expect, both machines come with detachable inner lids for ease of cleaning. As these machines have the same major components I want to focus on their smaller differences.

The ECJ-JG10W from Sanyo comes with a steamer tray and a special steam setting. This can be used to create the healthiest steamed vegetables. The Zojirushi NP-HTC10 does not have this feature. Of course you can see from the pictures above that they look quite different. They both have a wide range of rice cooking settings. The Zojirushi however is the only one to have a special setting for GABA brown rice. This is a long cooking option that takes about 3 hours but it is supposed to make the rice softer and the nutrients more readily digestible. However the Sanyo machine does have a pre-soak function which is kind of similar.

Another difference that you will be interested to find out about is that the Sanyo unit is cheaper than the Zojirushi. You can easily check this by comparing their prices on Amazon.

Some people question whether the pressure cooking feature is worth the money. If you buy a Zojirushi NP-HBC10 the only difference between that rice cooker and the NP-HTC10 is that they look slightly different and the former does not have the Pressure Cooking functionality. You can save yourself about $100 by going for the less expensive rice cooker.

    Can you use the pressure cooking for other foods other then rice?

    Hi Matthew,

    The Sanyo unit is more versatile in that it actually has a slow cooker setting. However the Zojirushi unit only has options to cook rice.

    That said, it is quite easy to experiment with these rice cookers and try cooking different things. However if you specifically want buttons to press for different kinds of cooking, the Sanyo would be a better option. The Sanyo is less expensive than the Zojirushi unit.
