What I really like about Zojirushi products is that they are made with the user in mind. Like other Zojirushi rice cookers, the NP-HCC18XH has a digital display. The display shows the white rice and other cereal cooking options, i.e. porridge. The display screen is large enough to see the settings that you selected.
One of the main things that customers compliment Zojirushi for is the convenience. For example, the delay timer. This setting lets you set your rice cooker to start cooking at the time of your choosing. Perhaps, you set the delay timer to start cooking an hour before the end of your shift. That way when you arrive home you’re met with the amazing aroma of freshly cooked rice.

The keep warm setting is perfect if you are having dinner guest or a party. If anyone wants seconds (or thirds), the rice will still be warm. The texture will be like that of fresh cooked rice well after it finished cooking.
You can cook more than just white rice in your Zojirushi rice cooker. You can cook brown rice, GABA brown rice, mixed rice, sweet rice, jasmine rice, sushi rice, and even porridge (grain cereal like oatmeal). The white rice gives you three texture options: regular, softer, and harder. The “quick cooking” option cooks white rice faster. I’ve read reviews for other Zujirushi products where customers claimed that the “quick cooking” yields rice that is a little harder than rice cooked using the regular white rice setting.
A feature that separates the Zojirushi NP-HCC18XH from other rice cooker brands is the triple heat sources. Those heat sources are at the bottom, sides, and the lid. This ensures that your rice is cooked through evenly.
