Zojirushi Micom rice cooker

Browse the full range

There are a wide range of Zojirushi rice cookers sold all over the world today. The NS-TGC10 Micom cooker is another strong performer in their product line up. This rice cooker is a 5.5 cup capacity machine which makes it perfect for families. This is the same size as the Zojirushi NS-ZCC10 rice cooker. However, the NS-TGC10 is actually the cheaper of the two. This is why I like this machine so much. Another feature of this machine that caught my eye is the fact that the inner lid is detachable. This makes for much easier cleaning.

The NS-TGC10 features Zojirushi’s Micom technology. This is what allows the rice cooker to think for itself and make slight temperature adjustments to ensure perfectly cooked rice every time. The majority of the features of both these rice cookers are the same. For example, they both feature a wide range of cooking settings from plain white rice, to their keep warm function through to even cooking cakes. Of course there are a whole variety of styles of rice that can be prepared by using the machines’ specific settings.

The main differences between the Zojirushi NS-TGC10 Micom and the Zojirushi NS-ZCC10 rice cooker are the way they look. You can check them out below. The NS-TGC10 is on the left. The NS-ZCC10 looks smaller here but that is just due to the pictures sizes. They are in fact very similar in size. Personally I prefer the styling of the NS-TGC10 Micom machine as I like the stainless steel coloring and to me the unit looks more robust. Click the images for more customer reviews on

Another difference between these two Zojirushi rice cookers is the inner cooking pan. The Zojirushi NS-TGC10 Micom has a black thick flat bottomed cooking pan while the NS-ZCC10 rice cooker has a spherical bottomed pan. Some people feel that the spherical style allows for more even cooking of the rice. I have used rice cookers with both styles of cooking pans. My current machine has the flat bottomed style and I am more than happy with the rice that it produces. Although I am once again thinking of getting a new rice cooker with the spherical cooking bowl.

To me, the cheaper Zojirushi NS-TGC10 Micom is the machine of choice out of the two discussed in this review.
