Whether you want to cook quinoa, porridge, mixed, brown or white rice it’s all possible using the NS-LAC05XT from Zojirushi, check out our review to find out it’s capabilities.

The Zojirushi rice cooker holds 3 cups worth of 6 ounce/180 ml rice and is capable of cooking rice to near perfection, however it would be unfair to concentrate just that one aspect, as it is also capable of cooking much more. Equipped with a microchip that calculates how long to cook for and what temperature depending on the rice, even with automatic steaming. It’s smarter than the average rice cooker.

A thermal sensor is activated during cooking to cook at a consistent temperature while heating the contents evenly, no more burned rice towards the bottom! It’s also really easy to clean with nonstick coating and a completely removable inner lid. The Zojirushi NS-LAC05XT has a basic layout, with a button to keep rice warm, a timer that can be customised depending on how long you want cook rice for and preset buttons for sushi, porridge, quick cooking, white and brown rice it is more versatile than just a rice cooker.

When you start the Zojirushi NS-LAC05XT the measurements within the inner pan give a good sign of how much rice is needed while the other measurements do the same for water, this is particularly clever as it takes into account the differences in types of rice and therefore help you achieve the best results every time.
With a LCD control panel the Zojirushi micon is easy to understand, the warm and reheat cycles make using leftovers even easier and there’s even a delay timer so you can cook rice that’s ready as you walk through the door!

Compact design

Being smaller than a microwave the footprint of the Zojirushi Micom is very small, if space is at a premium you need not worry, with a retractable cord it’s even more compact, you can even store the NS-LAC05XT in a cupboard. With a handle that fits around the unit it’s easy to pick up and put away too, great for portability.

Removable inner cooking pot

Unlike older models of rice cookers the NS-LAC05XT micon from Zojirushi has a removable inner container. This makes cleaning easier, getting sticky rice off the bottom of older models means bringing a damp cloth over and wiping the unit down to clean it, possibly damaging the electrical wiring. Because of the ergonomic design uses can simply take the container out and clean it like a bowl.
