Zojirushi NS-LAC05XT Rice Cooker Review
The Zojirushi NS-LAC05XT Micom 3-Cup Rice Cooker and Warmer is a great product
for those who like perfectly cooked rice. While the name might be a mouthful to say, it’s
nothing compared to the mouthful of rice you’ll be enjoying once you start using this
appliance.
There are many wonderful features this neat little appliance offers and in this review, I'll
go over several of the best things about it. I’ll also talk about some additional pointers
you should take note of before purchasing.
MICOM Technology and How Does It Work
The microchip in this rice cooker automatically calculates and adjusts cooking times and
temperatures for different types of rice: everything from the pre-soaking of grains to the
steaming of rice is taken care of for you.
The thermal sensor at the bottom of the inner pan is activated according to the cooking
option you select, and its “fuzzy logic” sensors ensure that rice will cook perfectly each
time. Due to the rice cooker’s heating system which provides even heating, rice at the
bottom of the pan will not burn because everything cooks at the same pace. (The black
and thick inner cooking pan regulates this heat, and it’s easily removed for washing.)
The product is also cETLus listed, which means it complies with safety standards in
both the USA and Canada.
Types of Rice That Can Be Cooked
The types of rice that this appliance can cook include white rice, brown rice, sweet rice,
mixed rice, sushi, and porridge. With just a press of a button, you’ll get to cook a wide
variety of rice. For those days when you barely have enough time to cook, there’s a
“Quick Cooking” option to help you out.

How to Use This Rice Cooker
Using this appliance really takes the guesswork out of cooking rice. The measuring lines
on the inner pan provide precise indications on how much rice to pour in and how much
water to use. If you’ve been cooking rice for some time, you’ll know that different types
of rice require different amounts of water to cook. The Zojirushi NS-LAC05XT rice
cooker will help you produce soft and fragrant rice on a consistent basis.
To make your cooking life easier, the rice cooker has an easy-to-read LCD control panel,
an automatic keep warm function, and an extended keep warm and reheating cycle.
There’s also a delay timer (with two settings) that cooks your rice when you’re not
around to press the “Start” button. This is perfect for people who need to head out of the
house in the morning (i.e. to go to work), but still want to come home in the evening to
rice that’s warm and not burned.
Sleek Design and Music to the Ears
The Zojirushi NS-LAC05XT rice cooker comes programed with interchangeable
melodies and beep signals to indicate when the cooking cycle has ended.
Cooking Capacity and Storage
The 3-cup capacity is ideal for singles, couples, and small families. According to the
manufacturer, the Zojirushi NS-LAC05XT rice cooker’s maximum capacity is three 6ounce cups of raw, short-grain white rice. This means that 18oz of raw, short-grain
white rice (when cooked) will yield between 36oz and 54oz of cooked rice.
The appliance comes with a built-in retractable power cord so there’s no mess when
you’re done cooking and want to store the appliance away.
Accessories
The rice cooker comes with a measuring cup, nonstick rice spatula, spatula holder, a
spherical inner cooking pan which provides even heating, and a detachable inner lid for
easy cleaning.

Dimensions
This 120 volts/450-watt rice cooker measures 11.8 x 9.1 x 7.5 inches and weighs 7
pounds.
Pros

MICOM technology and fuzzy logic – cooking time and temperatures adjusted
automatically

Cooks a wide variety of rice – sushi, porridge, mixed rice, brown rice, etc.

cETLus listed – complies with safety standards in both USA and Canada


Cons
Do take note that the measuring cup that comes with all Zojirushi rice cookers are
slightly smaller than normal rice cups found in the USA. The measuring cup that comes
with this rice cooker follows Japanese standards – but no worries as precise measuring
lines are already provided in the inner pan.
Word on the Street
With more than seven hundred reviews on Amazon at the time of this writing and an
average star rating of 4.7 out of 5, you’ll have to admit that this rice cooker is indeed a
popular appliance. At last count, there were over 600 five-star reviews for the Zojirushi
NS-LAC05XT rice cooker, and I think it has stood the test of time with a lot of happy
buyers.
Price
There are two different colors available for this model and they come with different
prices. While the black Zojirushi NS-LAC05XT looks really sleek, you'll be able to save
some money if you choose to purchase the stainless steel color instead. I’d have to say
that the stainless steel one doesn’t look as pretty as the black one, but all-in-all, it still

offers the exact same functions. It's your call on whether you want to shell out a few
extra dollars for a different color.
There is also a special bundle available on Amazon that includes the Zojirushi NSLAC05XT rice cooker and warmer, a cookbook with 250 rice recipes, silk-wrapped
chopsticks, two oil and vinegar bottles, and a bamboo spatula spoon.
Closing Thoughts
The Zojirushi NS-LAC05XT Micom 3-Cup Rice Cooker and Warmer is a smart little rice
cooker that will allow you to produce perfect rice each time you use it with minimal fuss.
I think for the price you’re paying, you’re really getting your money’s worth because this
is a product that’s built-to-last and makes cooking rice extremely easy.
