(list subject to change as updates & new units become available)

Zojirushi Rice Cookers

Zojirushi makes a very high quality lineup of rice cookers, and most if not all of their Fuzzy Logic cookers come with timer options.

Models like the NP-HTC10 & 18 are one of the most expensive and also one of the best brown rice cooker timer models currently on the market as they use the “GABA” method when preparing rice.

They are great for folks who prefer to prepare multiple rice grains, including white, brown, and sushi rice, and who eat rice daily.

Other Zojirushi Rice Cooker Timer Models to Consider are:


  • Zojirushi NS-ZCC18 (10 Cup)
  • Zojirushi NP-HBC10 (5.5 Cup)
  • Zojirushi NS-LAC05 (3 Cup)


Sanyo Rice Cookers

Another great brand to consider is Sanyo which also manufactures great rice cooker with timer models.

Our top choice is currently the Sanyo ECJ-HC55S & 100S, as they not only come with 24 hour clock and timer options, but also have addition benefits like food steaming and slow cooking features.

They make great quality rice that rivals Zojirushi cookers and are more budget friendly too. A nice brand to consider when wanting more than just a rice cooker.

Other Sanyo Models we Recommend are:


  • Sanyo ECJ-D100S (10 Cup)
  • Sanyo ECJ-PX50S (5 Cup)
  • Sanyo ECJ-S35K (3 Cup)



Aroma Rice Cookers With Timers

Last on our list comes Aroma who have just recently came out with a great selection of what they call “Sensor Logic” technology cookers, (same as Fuzzy Logic).

They are all moderately priced and will fit most budgets.

Most of these programmed rice cookers come with preset delay timers which means the user can select desired hourly intervals for when they wish the cooker to turn on and begin cooking. Sort of like what the above brands come equipped with.

Aroma Models to Consider are:


  • Aroma ARC-1000 (10 Cup)
  • Aroma ARC-838TC (8 Cup)
  • Aroma ARC-856 (6 Cup)
