To find a Zojisurhi NP-GBC05 for sale is easy. There are many places that sell this cooker online, for example Amazon. To be honest, they are a great place to start looking. Often they offer the lowest price so they are a good benchmark if you are trying to find the cheapest machine.

The Zojirushi NP-GBC05 is their premium rice cooker, in the 3 cup range, sold in the United States and Canada today. There literally is no better machine in the 3 cup rice cooker range. This is as good as it gets. If you need a larger size, you may want to buy a Zojirushi NP-HBC10 instead. A 3 cup machine is perfect for small families, couples and those of you living alone. It allows you to cook as little as 1/2 a cup of rice. I have owned both 3 cup and 5.5 cup rice cookers and to be honest have never needed to cook more than 3 cups in either of them so for me, I prefer the smaller machines.

It has a load of different cooking cycle settings. The NP-GBC05 is the only 3 cup rice cooker that I am aware of that has a special GABA brown setting. The allows you to prepare a supposedly healthier brown rice but it does take a long time. The rice is soaked for 2 hours at 104°F. This is supposed to activate the gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) which occurs naturally in brown rice so that we can get even more health benefits from eating it.

There are many different Zojirushi rice cookers for sale so it can be hard to decide which one to select. I put my money where my mouth is because I actually use the Japanese version of this machine, the NP-GD05. The good news for me is that rice cookers in Japan are cheaper than in North America.

The NP-GBC05 is a dream to use. When you have finished making your rice it is easy to clean up when you are done. All the sections that you need to clean are removable, e.g. the inner lid and the steam vent as well as the cooking bowl of course. Because the cooking bowl is coated with a non-stick material I always like to let it cool down fully before washing it. In fact, once it has cooled down and dried out, it is easy to simply wipe out the remains of the rice with some dry kitchen paper. Then wash it in warm soapy water and you are done.

The cheapest place that I have found to purchase a Zojirushi NP-GBC05 online is through Amazon. They offer great deals and are well known for their safe and reliable ordering system.
