"I want a good automatic rice cooker"

At least 6-cups and something that won't burn the rice that's left in there. Advice please!

My Automatic Rice Cooker Recommendation

My family has the Zojirushi Neuro Rice Cooker. It's only 5-1/2 cups tho, so it misses your cutoff by a bit :)

For my family of 4 (2 adults, 2 pre-teen girls...yay us), we rarely make more than 2 cups of rice for dinner and always have leftovers. Unless you are cooking for a big gathering, I'd think the 5.5 cup version would be fine!

We love the features, the look and the compact size of this rice cooker: it just feels solidly built; does a GREAT JOB cooking brown rice making it nice and plump and sticky; plus, it looks great on the counter and blends in well with our white cabinets and appliances!

We also have a bias for anything Zojirushi as they've built up a lot of goodwill with us through the performance of their other counter top appliance that we own (water boiler, bread maker).

One last thing: the timer is super easy to use which is important since we use it quite a bit, especially when making brown rice which takes 80 minutes to cook. Ping me with a comment if you have any questions!
comment I second the Zojirushi that mieyun recommended. Perfect rice, every time. Well worth the counter space, since my family makes rice at least 2 times a week. - mitch 6 years, 9 months ago
comment Thanks for the advice, mieyun and mitch! I'll let you know how it goes. - meggers 6 years, 9 months ago
comment My parents gave me the Zojirushi Neuro cooker when I went off to college. It makes great rice and I love how small it is on my counter top; a nice benefit for an apartment dweller like me! - amykim 6 years, 9 months ago

Get the Right Rice Paddle!

Your choice of rice paddle will make serving your rice either a scooping joy or a never-ending battle against the stubborn grains of rice that cling to your scoop as if they were glued there.

Don't get a smooth paddle, get one with either ribs, nubs or dimples. It makes a HUGE difference!
comment I couldn't agree more, Amy. We have a couple rice paddles with "ribs" and one with "nubs" and each are far superior to the smooth ones we have. - mitch 6 years, 4 months ago

More information about Why Do I Need a Rice Cooker?

Technically, you don't need a rice cooker. It is entirely possible to make rice in a pot on the stove or even in the microwave. Now that we think about it, you don't actually need a stove either. You could just cook your food over a fire in your living room. Sometimes, modern conveniences are worth the extra appliance in your kitchen.

The main reason to own a rice cooker is the convenience it provides you. Simply toss the rice in the cooker while you prepare the rest of your meal. When you are ready to eat, the rice is done, always cooked consistently and perfectly.
