We are finishing up our final Christmas giveaway with an awesome 5 1/2 cup Zojirushi Umami Micom Rice Cooker (value $273). Zojirushi is known for their high quality kitchen appliances, especially rice cookers. They are considered the best rice cookers on the market because of their intuitive technology which makes perfect rice every single time.
The Zojirushi rice cooker not only makes great rice, it has multiple unique settings that go far and beyond what other cookers can do. The Zojirushi rice cooker soaks and steams the rice longer for enhanced flavor, which releases the natural sugar in the rice grains resulting in a noticeably different flavor compared to cooking on a regular setting. As the rice cooks, the rice cooker adjusts the temperature and cooking time so the rice is always perfect. This is not the case with most other rice cookers on the market.
The cooker also has different settings for cooking different types of grains or rice (white, Umami, mixed, sushi, porridge, sweet, brown, GABA brown, rinse-free, quick cooking and slow cook). This rice maker also doubles as a slow cooker making it a dual purpose appliance. It’s also small enough to store in a kitchen cupboard or left on the kitchen counter without taking up too much space.
As someone who has owned several different types of rice cookers I know from experience you can add too much water, or not enough, and the end result can be disappointing. The smart technology behind Zojirushi rice cookers makes cooking rice nearly fail-proof.
If you eat rice on a regular basis or just love to make your own sushi at home, this Zojirushi Umami Micom rice cooker is for you! It also makes a lovely Christmas present.
The kind folks at Zojirushi has partnered with Savory Sweet Life to give one of these beautiful Zojirushi 5.5 cups Umami Micom Rice Cooker to one SSL reader.
