Best electric rice cooker for small to medium businesses. I have use this brand and model for more than a decade and will not use anything else.

Shai M. from The Poke Shack on 11/07/2019

This is by far the best cooker we have had it lasted a few years. We cook about 25lbs during the week and 30lbs to 40lbs on the weekend. We have 2 different cookers and this one was old reliable until it finally went out. I definitely got my money work.

Hiromi S. from Toshiko Japanese Cuisine on 08/07/2017

This thing is pretty friggin awesome. I've thrown white, brown, and mixed wild rice in here, and it always cooks it just right. I add a touch more water for anything except white rice, and it comes out perfect!

I use this Panasonic rice cooker at home to make cooked rice. It is very nice and worthy rice cooker in my opinion, I did research and found that it would be perfect for my needs. I did not wanted to buy some cheap no-name rice cooker, so I went with this Panasonic and have no regrets about it.
