3-Cup Zojirushi Micom Rice Cooker & Warmer: White & Stainless Steel

The Zojirushi Micom NS-LAC05, here in white and stainless steel, is a fully-automatic rice cooker with a digital readout and removable pan for convenient cleaning. This unit has an onboard microcomputer which automatically adjusts temperature and cook time based on the type of rice and quantity being cooked—hence the Micom name. The Zojirushi's 3-cup capacity is ideal for students, singles, couples, and small families where cooking large quantities of rice is inconvenient. Yields up to 6 cups of cooked rice (approximately).

The internal cooking pan is coated with a non-stick layer to keep rice from sticking and to minimize cleanup. This Zojirushi rice cooker's pan has measurement markings for white rice, brown rice, and sushi rice, and porridge— just add rice to the pan via the included measuring cup, fill water to the appropriate line, and start the machine. Zojirushi's Fuzzy Logic™ senses when rice is most tender and flavorful and switches from cooking to warming at that time, keeping rice at a stable serving temperature until you remove it (up to 12 hours). The Zojirushi makes an audible "announcement" once cooking is complete.

Included with purchase are a non-stick rice spatula with storage hook and a cup for measuring rice. The Zojirushi NS-LAC05 backed by a 1-year warranty through Zojirushi Rice Cookers, USA. Click the Video tab below for an overview.

Wow! This is the one! Review by


I recently purchased this model of the Zojirushi rice cooker and can't emphasize how pleased I am with the perfect results! The induction heating and spherical pan are a breakthrough in rice cooking. I love the delayed programming.

I've already used it for white steamed rice, sticky, and sushi rice.

If you regularly eat rice and want restaurant quality - actually I get better results than that, it pays to buy the best - Zojirushi.

It doesn't get any better than this! (Posted on 1/8/09)
