Zojirushi NS-LAC05XA Micom 3-Cup Rice Cooker and Warmer, Stainless Steel

I have done review on Zojirushi 5/13 cup electric rice cooker, and that is what we use. However what if you are wanting cook less rice or have one or two people in your household, this 3 cup rice cooker will be much more suited. It has very similar features to 5/12 cup electric rice cooker but little difference so here is the quick review for it. If you think you may need larger size, I strongly recommend review of our best rice cooker that we like here: Best rice cooker 5/12 cup.

  • Measures 11-1/2 by 9 by 7-1/4-inch; 1-year limited warranty.
  • Measuring cup, nonstick rice spatula, and spatula holder included
  • Keep-warm function; LCD display with timer; nonstick inner cooking pan
  • Menu selections include white, sushi, porridge, brown, and quick cooking
  • 3-Cup rice cooker with micro-computerized fuzzy logic technology

What makes it better?

The New Zojirushi Micom Rice Cooker and Warmer NS-LAC05 three cup rice cooker has a micro computerized Fuzzy logic technology. The exterior of this rice cooker and warmer is clean and durable clear-coated stainless steel which makes it unique in design. It has a automatic keep warm feature and a spherical inner cooking pan and heating system.

The Zojirushi NS-LAC05 is everything we hoped for and more. We wanted a rice cooker that would make great rice, that could handle smaller amounts of rice, that had a timer, and could handle a variety of different rices.

This rice cooker is a dream.
-It’s attractive. We’ve already received compliments from guests.
-Its footprint is very reasonable for a small kitchen.
-With a thick, stick proof bowl the rice doesn’t burn to any spot and clean up is simple.
-It easily makes rice for 2 adults (1.5 of the “cups” for us) but could handle 4 adults (3 “cups”) with normal eating habits. Note: the cups aren’t full size cups of rice.
-It does a great job on a variety of rices; there are different settings for different rices and the measurement markings appear correct for different rices. So far we’ve tried long grain brown, medium grain brown, sushi, jasmine, white basmati, brown basmati, and brown/white mixes. We haven’t had a bad batch of rice.
-The computer’s fuzzy logic algorithm (i.e. “Micom Neuro Fuzzy”) constantly adjusts the temperature so the rice comes out perfect every time. I also think the cooker starts out at a low temperature and gradually steps up the heat but I’m not 100% sure.
-The heavy bowl seems to distribute heat perfectly and there’s no scorched rice or crust attached to the bowl.
-The timer is convenient for setting the rice to be completed at a specific time, at which point it keeps your rice warm. We’ve found it completes cooking within a minute or two of the timer setting. There are two timer settings that you can adjust…presumably so you could have your rice prepared for breakfast & dinner in Japan.
-The retractable cord is a nice feature.
-There’s even a little holder for the included rice paddle that attaches to the side of the cooker.
