Zojirushi NP-NVC10 : What Do The Customers Think…?
There are lots of customers that offer there high praises for the Zojirushi NP-NVC10. This is certainly appears to be a high quality product. Zojirushi makes very high-quality products. As cliche as it may seem, the Zojirushi brand is like the Mercedes Benz of the rice cooker world.
There were some customers that weren’t satisfied with their purchase however. I took a look at the negative reviews to check for patterns. I didn’t find anything that changed my opinion of this machine. One or two instances of a problem isn’t a strong indication of a systemic durability issue. But to give you an example of some of the issues that I came across a report of the unit dying after just a few months.
In my experience, high-end products are rated much more harshly than lower-end ones. To me, that speaks volumes. There a a lot of customers whom are happy with this rice cooker.
In my opinion, the Zojirush NP-NVC10 is one of the best Japanese rice cooker on the U.S. market. It has features that I didn’t even know existed or were necessary. And apparently, the rice cookers on the Japanese market are even more feature rich.
But this rice cooker is high-end and certainly cost prohibitive for many customers. If you are simply looking for a rice cooker for plain white rice or occassional use, then save your money. This rice cooker is for the frequent rice eater that appreciates the nuances of rice prepared in different ways. However, to the average rice eater, it probably isn’t worth the additional upfront expense. But, if you frequently eat rice, and can afford it, this rice cooker seems almost other worldly.
