Capacities for All Sizes

This conventional rice cooker series come with three sizes, NHS-06 for 3 cup, NHS-10 6 cup and NHS-18 10 cup. The NHS-10 is the most popular seller among the three. It’s easy to understand that it’s for an average family size of 3-4 people. But if I were you, I would get the NHS-18 10 cup so you can cook more when you host a party. The price difference between the 6 cup and the 10 cup is only $10.

Conventional Heating

Heating is very straightforward. There are two main parts in this rice cooker. The external vessel has the heating element built in the bottom and a sensor that will be in touch with the bottom of the inner cooking pot. The inner cooking pot is made of non-stick material that sits into the external vessel. The rice and water are placed in the inner pot. Plug the electric cord to heat the cooker.

The heat will heat the inner pot through the heating plate on the bottom. The water will generate steam and be absorbed by the rice. The sensor will shut down the heat when the rice is cooked and the cooker will be switched to “keep warm” function automatically. Pretty simple, right?

Easy to Use and Clean

(Back to Top)

It can’t get any easier than this no-brainer rice cooker. It might take more efforts to mess it up if you wish. Soak the rice a few times until the water is clear (a critical step). Add water per the measured water line in the pot. Put the lid on and plug the electric cord. That’s it.

Cleaning a non-stick inner pot is just a matter of washing it in some soapy water with a gentle dish cloth.

Other Features – NHS-10

LCD and Timer:There is no fancy LCD display or timer, only two buttons for “cook” or “keep warm”.

Menu Selections:This rice cooker is designed to cook white and brown rice. Steaming is an added bonus for many. Don’t limit yourself to just steaming veggies. You can do better than that. Steaming fish is one of the best ways to get it done just right without added fat or losing nutrient. Do the same with chicken or another meat of your choice.

Cord:The electric cord is detachable. This is just another nice touch in the Zojirushi’s rice cooker. You can stow it away in a drawer after using it to keep the counter neat and tidy.

Color: White

Dimensions:9-1/8 x 7-1/2 x 7-1/2 for the 3 cup, 10-1/8 x 8-7/8 x 8-7/8 for the 6 cup and 12-5/8 x 10-3/4 x 9-3/8 for the 10 cup.

Accessories: Measuring cup and serving spatula

helpful-tipsHelpful Tips for Zojirushi NHS Rice Cooker

  1. The capacity for brown rice is reduced. For example, for NHS-10 the 6 cup cooker, you can cook as many as 3 cups of brown rice vs. 6 cups of white rice. Make sure you check the Instructional Manual.
  2. Soak brown rice for 15 to 20 minutes before cooking to get the better cooked rice.
  3. Steaming some potato to make American style or French style potato salad.
  4. The water requirement for steaming different vegetables is different and so is cooking time.
