3.5 Cup Capacity

This rice cooker is considered one of the smallest rice cookers in the U.S. market. With 3.5 cup of uncooked rice, it’s a fantastic size for a bachelor or empty nesters. As you might know, rice is doubled upon cooking. 3.5 cups will be 7 cups of cooked rice. The caveat is that the rice cup is smaller, about 3/4 of the U.S.cup. Then again, people rarely just have rice as their main meal.

Heating Technology for ECJ-S35S Rice Cooker

Like most of the high-tech rice cookers on the market, the Sanyo ECJ-S55S is equipped with a micro-computer chip to do all the “thinking” for us. The smart chip knows how long to cook the rice or bake the bread and at a precise temperature.

The inner pot is coated with extra thick Titanium and the round bottom of the inner pot conducts heating evenly and efficiently.

The rice comes out always perfectly. The bread is a huge hit with many people. I can salivate at the sweet aroma of the bread just by reading the customers reviews.

Of course, the “Keep Warm” function will make it very convenient for your family to eat at different times, yet still enjoy the freshness of the rice or the bread.

It doesn’t take a genius to figure out a few menu settings to cook rice, bake bread and make bread pudding. When you get the rice cooker, read up on the instructions, surf on YouTube to see a product demo. Play around with a few small test batches. You should be good to go.

Menu Selections: White, mixed, rinse-free, sprouted brown, quick, brown, porridge, bread and the Korean specialty dish of BiBimBab.

Bibimbab is a Korean signature dish. “Bibimbab” means “mixed meal”. A mixture of assortments of colorful vegetables, thinly julienned, grilled meat/s added and top it with a fried egg. A dollop of special chili pepper paste for mixing everything together. It is a match made in heaven for the color combination, bursting flavors and textures. Give it a try if you haven’t already. It is rated as number 40 on World’s 50 most delicious foods in a readers poll compiled by CNN Go in 2011.

Cord: Retractable cord

Color:This rice cooker has two color options, black and white. Black is a very rare color for most of the top-rated rice cookers as many only offer a shade of white or chrome. If you have black granite counter top in your kitchen, the black rice cooker will look really sharp.

Dimensions: 7 11/16″ x 10 5/8″ x 8 7/8″

Accessories: Measuring cup, rice spatula and recipes for various dishes

ECJ-S35S Rice Cooker Customer Reviews

4.5 out of 5More than just a rice cooker, Sanyo ECJ-S55S has wowed so many customers with the added-bonus of bread-making. They tried bread dough, pizza dough, sweet roll dough. All came out with slightly brown crust on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside. It goes without saying that it makes perfect rice time and time again.

Pros and Cons of ECJ-S35S Rice Cooker

ProsMulti-functional cooker, awesome bread baking machine. Save so much electricity in making rice and baking bread in this 460 watts cooker instead of heating up the oven and the entire kitchen. Perfect kitchen accessory for a small family or a bachelor or a bachelorette.

ConsInstructions are poorly translated, consistent feedback about several top Japanese rice cooker manufacturers. The sound of the buzzer is not loud enough. You may want to back it up with the alarm in the oven or an egg timer.
