The Sanyo ECJ-PX50S is one of their premium rice cookers. If you find a cheap Sanyo ECJ-HC55S you can save yourself a few dollars but even though these machines are similar, there are some differences that will make the extra cost of this model worth it for some. It depends on exactly what you are looking for in your rice cooker. One of the main differences is the thickness of the inner cooking pot. If you are trying to find a cheap Sanyo ECJ-PX50S you may find this difficult. This machine costs more than $100 so it depends upon your definition of what cheap means. This rice cooker has an extra thick cooking pan that is 3.5 mm in thickness. It is made from titanium and has a non-stick coating. The benefit of a thicker cooking pot is that it more effectively distributes heat. Therefore this helps ensure perfectly cooked rice every time you use your machine. In addition the cooking bowl has a rounded bottom which also adds to its heat distribution effectiveness.

When you buy a Sanyo ECJ-PX50S you get the benefit of its Variable Pressure Control Technology. This causes the rice to move about as it is cooking within the machine to help bring out its flavor and ensure a light and fluffy texture. There are various options you can set for the rice that you want to prepare. This machine can handle a whole host of different styles including Japanese white rice (japonica), brown rice, non-rinse rice, sushi rice and many more. As mentioned at the start of this review, this appliance offers more than just a rice cooking ability. It can be used to create delicious soups and stews by using the slow cook functionality. Further it is great for steaming vegetables too. For people looking to eat a healthier diet, this electrical appliance can become a great help. The cooker offers a timer function that can be set up to 24 hours ahead of when you want the machine to start cooking. This allows you to prepare your breakfast before going to bed and waking up to something nice and warm. In the winter this can be a lovely treat that you can give yourself, every day. Once the food that you have put into the Sanyo ECJ-PX50S has finished cooking, it automatically switches over to the warming function. This is claimed to keep food ready for up to 24 hours. However it has to be said that the sooner you eat it, the better. Food that has been kept warm using this setting tends to dry out a little if left for too long. This is especially true of rice which can become hard. This does not mean that it is not edible but just that it may not be as amazing as if it was eaten sooner. This is true of most rice cookers. In my own experience I find that eating “kept warm” rice up to about eight hours old is optimum.

The Sanyo ECJ-PX50S can prepare up to 5 cups of un-cooked rice. This will be enough to feed about seven or eight people. So it is a good sized cooker for many families. There is also a pressure cooking ability that can speed up cooking times. This rice cooker has a stainless steel outer shell which is both easy to clean and stylish. The steam vent is also removable. This makes it easy to clean up after use.

If you are looking for a cheap Sanyo ECJ-PX50S rice cooker then I recommend checking out the prices available at Amazon. They have a wide range of Sanyo rice cookers at reasonable prices.

    Can this model be used in Asian or European countries with voltage 220-230?

    Hi Min,

    No this is a 110V model. There is one called the Sanyo ECJ-FS50UK Petit Gourmet Multi Function Slow Cooker. Unfortunately there is a real lack of top quality rice cookers outside of Japan, the U.S. and Canada.
