Buy a Zojirushi NP-HBC18 now


The Zojirushi NP-HBC18 is the big brother to the Zojirushi NP-HBC10 rice cooker. While the smaller machine has a capacity of 5.5 cups, the NP-HBC18 can cook 10 whole cups of rice at once. This makes it perfect for large families (over 8 people) as well as great for entertaining and dinner parties. Typically 2 cups is enough for 3 people so this machine is capable of preparing rice for up to 15 people at once.

The larger machine also gives you the option of simply cooking more rice for yourself. Storing rice in tupperware containers and then freezing it is a perfectly good way to save yourself time and on washing up. There are special containers that you can get to store your rice in. These are easy to find in Japan however I am not altogether sure about their availablity in the U.S. and Europe. Wraping portions of rice up plastic wrap is another option to consider.

The features of this rice cooker are literally the same as the smaller machine. The only really difference being the size. Therefore it really depends upon your own situation as to which machine would be best suited to your needs. If you are looking for a top of the range machine then a Zojirushi rice cooker may be your best option. The NP-HBC18 uses induction heating technology to ensure even heating of your rice and avoid burning. There are a wide range of cooking options that can be used to prepare a variety of different kinds of rices and recipes. Of course if all you want is standard white rice then the Zojirushi NP-HBC18 excels and, provided you wash and prepare your rice correctly, guarantees you perfect rice every time.
