Do you want to buy a Zojirushi NP-HTC10? Think carefully before making your final decision. This rice cooker is not cheap. It costs nearly $400. One of the best places to compare prices is on Amazon. They usually have the lowest price available online. The NP-HTC10 is the model up from the NP-HBC10. It is the “best rice cooker” sold in the U.S. and Canada today. So what are the differences?

These two machines look different. Both have a stainless steel body but the higher priced machine is “stainless brown” instead of plain “stainless steel” so there is a cosmetic difference.

Functionally they are almost the same. As far as settings go, they both have a color LCD display and can cook the same types of rices. However the main difference when you get a Zojirushi NP-HTC10 is that it has a pressure control function. It automatically selects from three pressure levels, depending upon the cook cycle that you choose. The added pressure is supposed to help give the rice a better texture as well as make it easier to digest. However, does it taste any better? While customers on Amazon are happy with the performance of the NP-HTC10, it seems hard to detect the difference in taste between the NP-HTC10 and the NP-HBC10 therefore even though the more expensive machine is “better” it might be a good idea to save some money and buy a Zojirushi NP-HBC10 instead.

Other than the way they look and the pressure cooking ability of the NP-HTC10, there is no other major difference between the two rice cookers.

As you would expect from Zojirushi, the NP-HTC10 cooker is easy to use and simple to clean up. After each time you use the machine you should always wash the cooking bowl, inner lid and steam vent.

Before you decide to buy a Zojirushi rice cooker you should spend some time and research your proposed purchase thoroughly. To find who sells these appliances, Amazon is a good place to start. They are well known for their low prices and secure ordering system.
