There are countless ways to eat rice, one of the most versatile staple foods on the planet. Think about it the same way as you would bread. You’d have a dinner roll or bread with your soup, stew or barbecued meat, wouldn’t you?

Rice Cooker features to keep cooked rice warm and delicious made possible because it’s a Zojirushi product.
Zojirushi recommends using the Keep Warm feature for no more than 12 hrs. For longer periods, use Extended Keep Warm.
If during Keep Warm, rice gets mushy, yellow or dry, make adjustments by referring to the manual or call Zojirushi for help.
To preserve rice beyond the Keep Warm cycle, we recommend keeping airtight and refrigerating. Rice also freezes well.
