There are a few different Zojirushi 3 cup rice cookers for you to look at if you want a high quality small rice cooker. The “best” is the NP-GBC05. You can find all the models pictured above, the NP-GBC05, Rizo, NS-LAC05 and NP-VGC05 on Amazon. This is a good place to compare prices and decide which model and price best suits your circumstances. There is a further model not pictured above, the NHS-06, which is not a Micom rice cooker.

The four Zojirushi appliances above all feature their Micom (Micro Computerized) chip which controls the cooking process. The Zojirushi NHS-06 on the other hand is just a simple electrical rice cooker with an on and off switch. The Micom machines are able to control the temperature within the cooking bowl and also shorten or lengthen the cooking time.

If you choose to buy a Zojirushi NP-GBC05 you are getting the most expensive 3 cup rice cooker sold in the United States and Canada at present. It features their Induction Heating System. This helps to make sure that each grain of rice is cooked to perfection and that it has a lovely texture. The cooking times for various grains varies. For some e.g. white rice it takes around an hour or less. While for GABA brown rice you are looking at over 3 hours cooking time!

The Rizo rice cooker has a setting for risotto. The cheapest of the four, the NS-VGC05 has a setting for making cakes. These are the only 3 cup machines with these features. The variety means that whatever your needs you should be able to pick one that is suitable.

To find out who sells Zojirushi rice cookers at the best price, have a look on Amazon to see their prices. Typically they are the lowest you will find anywhere online. They are a good place to use for comparison purposes.
