Coordinating perfectly done rice with the rest of a meal can present challenges even for seasoned chefs. Zojirushi takes care of that delicate timing with its Automatic 10 Cup Rice Cooker and Warmer. When the cooking process is complete, it switches automatically to a Keep Warm setting that will preserve the right texture and moisture until you are ready to serve. The larger capacity lift-out pan with its interior water level markings and quick-release nonstick surface will maintain those temperatures for several hours. At the side, a condensation collector works in tandem with the lock-tight lid to manage moisture and steam. Use the included cup for precise measuring of white rice, add the recommended amount of water, fill the container and flip a switch. For brown rice and specialty grains, soaking ahead of time can optimize results. When the Zojirushi 10 Cup Automatic Rice Cooker and Warmer is on the job, you can walk away and tend to other parts of the meal. A stay cool exterior with recessed lifts at the base makes it easy to move from countertop to the table.
