This exclusive-to-Japan rice cooker comes from the land where people really know how to prepare rice, AND how to make better tasting rice even easier to make. Zojirushi's Kiwamedaki ("ultimate rice cooker") pressurizes the plantinum pot to prompt the breakdown of starch in the rice. Combining the age-old know-how of traditional Japanese rice cooking of increasing the heat in the middle of cooking, the machine is designed to do this automatically, increasing the internal pressure.
More water is absorbed into the rice, breaking down starch and increasing the sweetness of the final product. Its vacuum oven pot is plantinum and thus easy to maintain. Moreover, the controls are on a practical touch-panel, and the menu is made more visible on the clear organic EL display.
