Zojirushi Micom Rice Cooker & Warmer (NS-LGC05)


We’re excited to introduce our newest small-capacity, microcomputerized rice cooker this month!

The Micom Rice Cooker & Warmer (NS-LGC05) is stylishly designed, and has innovative technology and cooking features that make it easy and convenient to use.

This rice cooker’s microcomputer uses advanced fuzzy logic technology to make fine adjustments to cooking temperatures, so that rice cooks perfectly each time. The multiple settings let you easily cook a variety of rice, including white, mixed, sushi, brown, and—for the first time—long grain white rice. Expanded healthy menu options include settings for steel cut oatmeal and GABA brown rice, which soaks the brown rice before cooking for enhanced nutrition. Each of these menu settings can be selected on the easy-to-read LCD control panel, which also has a clock, and delay timer function.


This rice cooker uses a triple heater on the bottom, sides, and lid to generate heat all around the inner cooking pan so that the rice heats evenly. The removable steam vent cap located on the outer lid allows for high-temperature cooking without messy overflows. Once rice is cooked, the rice is automatically kept warm, and the REHEAT cycle brings the rice back to serving temperature when you’re ready to chow down.

Along with these great features, the rice cooker comes with a practical and easy-to-clean nonstick coated spherical inner pan. High-contrast water level lines on the inside of the pan make it simple to read how much water should be added to the pan for the specified amount of rice. The pan and the detachable inner lid are both hand washable, and the clear-coated stainless steel exterior is easy to wipe down after use. The built-in retractable power cord and sturdy fold-down handle make it easy to store and transport this compact rice cooker.

The NS-LGC05 Micom Rice Cooker & Warmer comes in a 3-cup capacity, making it ideal for small kitchens. Individuals and small families can make as little as ½ cup of rice or oats and as much as three cups of perfectly delicious rice. Accessories include a rice measuring cup, spatula and spatula holder.

We know you’ll love this new rice cooker as much as we do, and you’ll be able to purchase it from our great retail partners this month! As always, we’d would love to hear from you, so be sure to leave a comment below.

  1. Made great rice for the first few months. Now, everytime I make rice, it stinks like an old dirty rag. Cleaning it thoroughly, didn’t change the results of smelly rice. Now it just looks good on my counter while I depend on a cheap $10 rice cooker to make a better and non-stinky rice. I really depended on zojirushi to produce something amazing for years to come.

    • Hi Gary, sorry to hear about your trouble with your rice cooker. Are you removing the inner lid and steam vent cap after each use and cleaning them? If not, this could cause unwanted flavors to develop in your cooked rice. If you’re still having trouble, please give our customer service team a call at 800-733-6270 and press 1 for a representative. We’d be happy to troubleshoot with you.

  2. I made gaba brown rice setting menu at gaba brown rice. Added to cooker 1 cup (that came with rice cooker) plus 1 3/4 cups water. Took 3 1/2 hrs. to cook. Rice was too thick and lumpy. Did not like.

    • Hi Jennie, we’re sorry to hear you’re having some trouble with your GABA brown rice. For a rice cooker which has the GABA brown setting, please use the measuring cup that comes with the product to measure both rice and water (it is smaller than a standard US 8 oz. measuring cup), and use the BROWN rice water measure lines in the inner cooking pan. You must use regular brown rice, and not sprouted or ‘GABA’ brown rice which has already been activated, as those rices may become mushy when cooked using this setting. If you are still having trouble or if you need any assistance, please give our friendly customer service team a call. They’re available Monday-Friday from 8:00AM-5:00PM PST by dialing 800-733-6270 and pressing 1. Hope this helps!

  3. Hello. I just purchased the NS-LGS05 product
    about a month ago from Amazon.
    Today when I tried to cook again, the screen
    simply displayed “H01” error code
    and stopped working.

    What should I do from here to fix it?
    I have tried unplugging and plugging again
    a few times to no avail.

  4. Hey. I have the older version, it’s still working, but when I need a inner pot replacement, I couldn’t find anywhere online or in store. Amazon sells it for $159. It’s ridiculous.
