Product Inspirations – Micom Rice Cooker & Warmer (NL-BAC05)

Introducing our new Micom Rice Cooker & Warmer (NL-BAC05)!

We love this compact rice cooker. It’s packed with features and is an ideal size for couples and small families. With this 3-cup rice cooker, you can make as little as ½ a cup of rice or grains, allowing you to have the flexibility of making a small dish or a hearty meal.

This rice cooker uses some of our best features, like a nonstick coated, 2.5mm thick black inner pan which allows for even heat distribution and easy cleaning, as well as a triple heater with an extra-large heating element that heats the inner pan from the bottom, sides and top. The onboard microcomputer employs advanced fuzzy logic technology to ensure perfect results every time by making fine adjustments to cooking time and temperature.

This rice cooker also has new healthy menu settings such as Steel Cut Oatmeal and Quinoa, as well as the other settings like White/Sushi rice, Brown rice, Long Grain White rice, Quick cooking, and even Cake which can all be found on the easy-to-use LCD control panel. The machine chimes with a melody feature when cooking is complete, so you can enjoy your food hot and fresh. Two keep warm settings–Automatic Keep Warm and Extended Keep Warm–keep rice at the perfect serving temperature.

One of the great benefits of using a rice cooker is having your rice or grains prepared when you’re ready to eat it. The Delay Timer function on this rice cooker sets the machine to finish cooking rice by a specific time, so you can program it to cook while you’re at work or out running errands, and have rice ready when you return. And convenience features like a removable Steam Vent Cap allows for high temperature cooking without messy overflows. The retractable power cord and sturdy fold-down handle make this machine simple to store, and all surfaces that come into contact with food are BPA-free. Plus it comes with a spatula and measuring cup.

We hope you try out our delicious recipes like this Quinoa and Chicken Super Salad!

  1. the measuring cup that came with the rice cooker was accidentally thrown away. Is it equal to one cup or what is the correct measurement?

  2. Would the NL-BAC05 manual be the same settings/instructions as for the NL-BU05? I have the BU 05 but there is no english manual available

    • Hi ‘eter, thank you for using a Zojirushi product! The NL-BU05 is not a US model, and unfortunately we do not offer support for it (and we do not have an English manual for it). The manual for NL-BAC05 may be similar, but not exactly the same. Please reach out to the store you purchased the product from for further support.

    • Hi Won, unfortunately we are not provided parts information on foreign Zojirushi models to check the compatibility. We apologize for the inconvenience. If you reside outside of the US and Canada, then please reach out to Zojirushi World Wide and they will be able to assist you further: zojirushi-world.com/contact/
