Tiger Corporation Micom One-Button Rice Cooker, 5.5-Cup

Last updated: January 12, 2022

While many rice cookers require you cook your main dish using a separate device, this rice cooker comes with a steam basket so you can cook the entire meal at once and in the same machine. In fact, in order to make the best use of the "synchrony-cooking" function, the company supplies a complimentary cookbook. Once your meal is done, all you need to do is remove the inner pot and steam basket and wash them clean.

We looked at the top Rice Cookers and dug through the reviews from some of the most popular review sites. Through this analysis, we've determined the best Rice Cooker you should buy.

From The Manufacturer

Our multi-functional rice cooker allows you to prepare two dishes simultaneously with Tiger’s own ‘tacook’ synchronized cooking function. With minimal preparation and the press of a button, Tiger’s Automatic Cooking Logic system actively monitors cooking temperatures to create the perfect meal. Unlike other rice cookers, Tiger’s cooking plate is specially designed so the flavors from the cooking plate do not affect the flavor or texture of the rice.
