Let me start by saying this is a great rice cooker. In the past I have always used and purchase cheaper rice cookers from Wal-Mart or somewhere and was hesitant to spend so much. My mom kept insisting it was worth it and I would have to agree. The rice turns out way better than my previous rice cooker which was some cheap model (Panasonic maybe). I didn't know what I was missing until I ate the rice produced from this cooker.
There are plenty of other reviews that go into the specifics about pro/cons but I will list some that influenced my decision.
Pros +Made in Japan - this is subjective perception of quality. +Adjustable Cooking Time- the Zojirushi model i was comparing didn't have a timer so this was a pro for me.
Cons - Non-retractable power cord. - Lithium Battery ( i didn't really consider this, but after reading the manual Tiger state the battery lasts approximately 5 years and they recommend an "authorized...
When I got it (Feb 6, 2016), it was $150 vs $145 or so for NS-TSC10.
Well, it was a tough choice, but after comparing all the features and reading online manuals for both cookers I have settled on the Tiger and am still very pleased.
My personal Pros for the Tiger JAX that are missing in NS-TSC10 (in no particular order): - Slow cook mode. It's a very nice feature allowing us to do some random dishes like omelets and 1-minute oatmeals (10 minutes, actually). - Neutral silvery-steel color (NS-TSC10 has very brown shade). - About twice as fast in the "Quick" mode as NS-TSC10. - It's made in Japan (NS-TSC10 is made in China). - The Tiger has adjustable cooking time and NS-TSC10 does not. This is another big pro. - Porridge mode has adjustable time.
Tiger's cons: - Non-retractable power cord. - The pot does not have plastic handles (NS-TSC10 does not have them too). - No baking mode (I wonder whether...
Tiger is a brand I grew to know while living in Japan, and we had our old cooker for a full decade without issues. Really, considering our old model is over 10 years old, it actually isn't broken or anything; the rice just is starting to go bad quicker and rather than bother getting a new bowl or thoroughly cleaning the old one, I figured it was time for an upgrade to a bigger size anyways.
This one works just as well and the one we bought in Japan for the most part. There are a couple of minor annoyances like the top doesn't have the satisfying click that our old model had; it just kind of flomps shut. It's secure, but without the click it just doesn't feel so. It also seems to get pretty hot on the lid and smells like hot plastic, not burnt, just a very heated plastic smell...I don't remember our old one having a smell while cooking. Outside of that, really there's nothing to complain about.
Considering the price you can get these for on Amazon (~$150),...
