The author who compared and examined various rice cookers because the rice cooker that he had been using for many years broke. I was attracted to the ability to cook white rice and side dishes at the same time, so I bought the "IH Jar Rice Cooker [Cooked] JKT-L100". It is a product of Tiger Corporation.

"IH Jar Rice Cooker [Freshly Cooked] JKT-L100" is a rice cooker that says, "Cook up to one grain of rice in a clay pot coat kettle that approaches the deliciousness of clay pot rice." In addition to the "extreme horse menu" and "frozen rice menu", there are also "cooking menus" and "cake menus".
As a tiger magic bottle "tacook" series, a cooking plate is attached in addition to the inner pot. By placing this cooking plate on the inner pot when cooking rice, it is possible to cook white rice and side dishes at the same time. I tried to make keema curry and omelet by referring to the recipe on the official website.
As for the impression that I made some, it is quite convenient. Not only does it save you time, but you don't have to worry about burning it like a gas fire. It's basically steamed, so it's also attractive to have a healthy taste with less oil.
On the other hand, what I felt was the bottleneck was that the capacity of the cooking plate was not large (for about 2 to 3 people). Depending on the food you cook and the number of family members, it is more efficient to use a frying pan or pot. I also felt that the cooking plate should be used only occasionally because it can be cooked using the inner pot.

The "IH jar rice cooker [freshly cooked] JKT-L100" that I purchased is a 5.5 go type, and the price range is around 18,000 yen.
As an aside, I have been using the Tiger Corporation rice cooker for about 10 years. I replaced it with a relatively new model "JKT-L100" this time, and I was impressed by the improved ease of use and maintenance. The rice cooker industry is remarkably sophisticated in its functions, but I think the detailed design is steadily improving.
