We haven’t gathered much about the Tiger JAY-A55U small rice cooker, but do have some research to share, and enough to make an *estimated guess on its rating based on great reviews and feedback from other Tiger models.

Something which is expected from Tiger brand rice cookers.

This Tiger 3 cup rice cooker will make up to 9 cups of cooked moist and fluffy white rice, and like other rice cookers of this design also has an on board menu that allows users to select a variety of rice types that include white rice, brown rice, mixed, rinse free, germinated brown rice, sweet rice and even porridge.

Maintains Consistency

The Tiger JAY-A55U has an extra thick scratch-resistant bowl that distributes heat evenly thanks to the Induction Heating technology along with computerized internal monitoring. The plus benefit about this cooker is that it will make subtle adjustments while cooking the selected desired variety resulting in a bowl of moist & fluffy rice after each and every use.

One thing folks will find out fast is that this unit will take most of the guess work out of cooking rice…especially brown rice which is a challenge to get right at first!

When the rice is finished the TIGER JAY-A55U will switch in a keep warm mode holding the rice at a ready to eat temperature for up to 12 hours without drying it out.

Included with this 3 cup rice cooker is a measuring cup and rice paddle for perfected measuring and scratch free serving. The easy to use interface features soft-touch buttons and large LCD display that will have folks cooking rice in no time.
