Zojirushi NS-TGC10 Micom 5.5 cup rice cookerZojirushi NS-ZCC10 5 1/2 cup rice cooker

If you have decided to buy a Zojirushi rice cooker and want some help to choose which model to purchase, then you may be interested to know the differences, as well as the similarities, between the Zojirushi NS-TGC10 and the NS-ZCC10.

Even though they look completely different, they are both 5.5 cup rice cookers. You will notice the “10” at the end of their model numbers, this indicates that they can make rice for up to ten people. Therefore these appliances are a good size for most families. If you need to make rice for more people than this then you may want to get a Zojirushi NS-TGC18 or NS-ZCC18 instead. I will let you work out how many people they can feed.

Both the NS-TGC10 and the NS-ZCC10 are Zojirushi Micom rice cookers. You can read more about the meaning of Micom here. Briefly, it means that these appliances are controlled by by Micro Computer chips. All top quality rice cookers have this so they are definitely the best kind to go for. The NS-TGC10 is a standard Micom machine while the NS-ZCC10 also has Zojirushi’s Neuro Fuzzy techonology which is their advanced Micom computer chip. As you may guess from this, the NS-TGC10 is therefore a bit cheaper than the NS-ZCC10.

This is not the only difference. The cooking settings that they have also varies. The NS-ZCC10 has options to cook white rice at different levels of hardness/softness while the NS-TGC10 does not. On the other hand, you can actually make cakes in the NS-TGC10 but the Zojirushi NS-ZCC10 does not offer this feature. Both do a great job of cooking regular white rice, brown rice, sushi rice and rice porridge. The also both have a quick cook setting and a keep warm function.

The exterior of these appliances looks quite different. The NS-TGC10 has a stainless steel finish while the NS-ZCC10 is made of molded white plastic. Their overall size is very similar.

Both machines are easy to clean. Their interior lid comes out and you can remove the steam vents too. This makes it easy to get all parts of the rice cookers completely clean.
