The Panasonic SR-MS102 and Zojirushi NS-ZCC10 are very similar rice cookers. It depends upon your own cooking needs whether it makes more sense to buy a Panasonic SR-MS102 or buy a Zojirushi NS-ZCC10. First of all, they both look fairly similar with their white finish. Some people prefer the stainless steel colored finish while others like this clean white look. Both rice cookers feature an advanced Micom controller chip set with Fuzzy Logic technology. And they both come with rice spatulas and a measuring cup (the Zojirushi includes two cups, one for non-wash rice).

There are of course differences. While they are both made by Japanese electronics manufacturers, the Panasonic machine is produced by a company that makes a huge range of electronic devices and the NS-ZCC10 is made by Zojirushi who specialize in kitchen appliances, in particular, rice cookers. For me, this is one factor that makes me think that a Zojirushi is the best rice cooker of the two. But if you forget Zojirushi’s reputation and just look at the specifications, the Panasonic is the one that seems to shine.

For example the Panasonic SR-MS102 seems to be a more versatile rice cooker. It has a slow cooker setting which makes it perfect for cooking things like soups as well as stews. You can also use to make cakes. The Zojirushi NS-ZCC10 does not have this feature. If you want to make cakes in a 5 1/2 cup Zojirushi you would have to buy a Zojirushi NS-TGC10 instead. Also the SR-MS102 comes with a steaming tray that attaches to the top of the rice cooking bowl. This is great for making healthy steamed vegetables and can be used at the same time as you are cooking rice. There is actually a dedicated steam setting so this so I personally would prefer to cook my vegetables in “clean steam” rather than rice steam.

Both of these rice cookers can be found for the best price on Amazon. They have the lowest prices online for a huge number of kitchen appliances.
