Tiger rice cookers come in various ranges, and are available in models ranging from on/off electric rice cooker models to the technologically advanced microcomputer controlled ones. They also have the latest innovation in rice cooking technology in their induction rice cookers. This is a Japanese company, and thus quality and efficiency at reasonable prices are their hallmarks, as is true with most other Japanese products. Tiger rice cookers are preferred by many simply because they are made in Japan.
What sets the Tiger rice cookers apart is their simplicity of design in the basic models which make them affordable to everyone. The more advanced rice cookers with fuzzy logic and the induction variety are costlier, though much more reasonably priced than contemporary brands with similar features. People who use Tiger rice cookers vouch for their reliability, efficiency and durability, using them over many years.
In their on/off electric rice cooker range, the JNP-S55U model can cook 3 cups of uncooked rice while the JNP-S10U cooks 5.5 cups of rice perfectly. White rice can be made in these rice cookers and kept warm for about 12 hours.
They also have larger capacity models that can cook 8 and 10 cups, but the technology is essentially the same. They are reliable and simple in design, making them one of the most popular rice cookers in Japan, with the market picking up at a fast rate in other parts of the world.
The only disadvantage with these rice cookers is that they cannot cook many rice varieties easily. For instance, brown rice settings are not available, neither are options like sushi or chili modes. Other than that, if you are looking for a good and reliable model to cook white rice with technology that you can trust, these rice cookers are a good choice.

In their more technologically advanced range of rice cookers, the Tiger JBA-T10U Microcomputer rice cooker is a good choice. The rice bowl has clear markings to indicate the amount of water needed for each variety, and the ladle comes with a bubble design to prevent rice from sticking to it.
The LCD display is easy to read and more importantly, it cooks rice really well with its microprocessors, which adjust internal settings to cook various options such as brown rice and multi grain rice. You can also slow cook in this rice cooker or simply steam food in it. The handle to carry it is a bit inconvenient though, but other than that this model is a great choice if you are looking for a smart rice cooker.

In the mid range you may want to check out the Tiger JBV-A10U. The Tiger JBV-A10U cooks perfect rice each time with its microcomputer technology, and also cooks your other main dishes together with the rice with its synchro-cooking technology called ‘tacook’.
It is said that the design of this rice cooker helps make the rice taste better when you steam food on top of it, because the steam vents from the top only. I can actually attest that the rice tastes fresh every time and doesn’t absorb the smells or taste of the food steamed on top. The 5.5-cup size is a reasonable size for a family.
