This Smart Zojirushi Rice Cooker Is Currently the Cheapest It Has Ever Been on Amazon

It uses fuzzy logic to make perfect rice, every time.


Zojirushi makes some damn fine rice cookers, and though it’s a more entry-level model in the brand’s lineup, this NS-LGC05XB should be enough for most casual home cooks. It will make three cups of rice at a time and has settings for long grain rice, brown rice and steel-cut oatmeal. It even features a microcomputer that can make human-like judgments and adjustments to cooking time and temperature based on imperfect conditions (this is known as fuzzy logic) to produce perfect rice every time. Normally, the NS-LGC05XB retails for $150, but right now Amazon has given the cooker its biggest markdown to date, so you can snag it right now for just under $100.
