GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) is a nutrient in brown rice that researchers have found to lower blood pressure and relieve stress. The NL-GAC rice cooker offers a special cycle that activates the GABA in brown rice, increasing it to 150% of the level in nonactivated rice. This special cycle keeps the rice at about 104° F for close to 2 hours. Total GABA-cycle time is about 3 hours to 3 hours and 40 minutes, and along with increasing the GABA level, it also makes brown rice softer. 

  • “It's rare to do business with people who place principle above profit. I recommend your company highly.”

    – Roland Young, KS

The Zojirushi's spherical nonstick pan design and heating system ensures even heating for perfectly cooked rice. Lock-tight sealing lid keeps rice moist. Durable commercial grade non-stick interior for super fast and easy cleanup. NEW dimpled inner lid design ensures that condensation drips uniformly over rice surface, and inner lid is detachable for washing; a useful feature.

Easy to read LCD display includes clock. Automatic reheating and keep-warm cycles keep rice fresh tasting up to 12 hours. Sturdy carrying handle and detachable cord make it easy to carry unit to table to serve right from cooker.

Capacity: 1 to 5.5 cups (pre-cooked volume) for model -10; 1 to 10 cups (pre-cooked volume) for model -18. 

The capacity of each Zojirushi rice cooker is stated by how many 6-ounce cups of raw short grain white rice it will hold. Rice will double or triple in volume as it cooks.
