Zojirushi Rice Cookers

Know Your Rice ... and
The Right Way to Cook It!

Know Your Rice Know Your Rice Know Your Rice

Various types of rice cook differently. Zojirushi rice cookers were designed to cook short and medium grain rice. However, we understand that you may want to cook other types of grains such as long grain rice and steel cut oatmeal. Because these types of grain cook differently than short/medium grain rice, we have provided in the following pages the best way to cook these grains, and to ensure that they do not overflow or be undercooked.

The instructions on this page are different for each rice cooker model. If you came to this page directly, please visit www.zojirushi.com/grains to select the rice cooker model you own.
