Basic Information on Sanyo Rice Cookers
Sanyo may not be the most popular name on the market concerning rice cookers, but their units offer a lot for the money. In fact, for paying sometimes half the price they are just as good, if not better than some Zojirushi cookers which are one of the most elite in the industry.
Sanyo Builds Micro Computerized Rice Cookers
Like Zojirushi, Sanyo offers a line of rice cookers that use both Fuzzy Logic and micro computerized technology. This technology does more than just cook rice as it will also monitor how the rice is cooking and will adjust temperature and cooking time.
This means that folks always get a bowl of moist consistent rice every time. The days of soggy or undercooked rice are over.
However, not all Sanyo rice cookers are micro computerized, and there is a basic line up of models that just boil the rice until it is finished.
More Than Just a Rice Cooker
Cook rice, steam vegetables, boil eggs, prepare oatmeal, and slow cook stews and soups!
It is in this category where spending your money on a Sanyo unit pays for itself over and over. Certain models come equipped with both rice cooking, slow cooking, and pressure cooking settings.
These versatile benefits allow the owner to do more than just cook rice, but can also have an entire meal prepared for the whole family. During our research, the “slow cooking” setting does a pretty good job and is not just so-so. Overall, most folks seem very pleased with it.
Like modern slow cookers, all Sanyo rice and slow cooker units come with a programmable timer allowing a person to select the start/finish time. The only possible con is that the maximum cook time is anywhere between 8 and 12 hours, depending on the specific model
Cook Multiple Rice Types Perfectly
Another plus is that most Sanyo rice cookers offer specific settings for brown rice, white rice, sweet, wild, mixed rice, sushi, and more. The units also feature a “rice texture setting” for desired grain character (such as moist or sticky).
Along with other brands like Panasonic, Tiger, and Zojirushi, there is just a slight learning curve regarding the water to rice ratio in order to get it perfect. But as mentioned above, the Sanyo will adjust to make up for slight measuring errors for the most part
Whether you need a basic and simple rice cooker, or a slow-cooking multitasker, Sanyo rice cooker models remain a fine choice. Not all of them are great, but most will perform well, last long under normal usage, and provide years of well-cooked meals.
