Rice comes out perfect every time
I wanted a Japanese made rice cooker and this was one of the few still made there that's available on BTA-MALL. Being Asian, I still appreciate the quality of their products over ones made in China. The primary complaints on this one have been the controls, which are a bit more complex than the other models. You do have to watch the lights but I've had no issues. The ones made in China for the US market are simpler in design and have better reviews. But, I've had mine now for well over a year and the rice is perfect every time. I have not used it, though, to cook anything else.

Excellent rice cooker
This cooker is excellent, the moment I received the cooker I cooked a small batch of perfectly cooked rice and was amazed how easy it was, when cooled it's perfect rice to stir fry with, I just made a batch of Mexican rice by adding my favorite salsa and homemade enchilada sauce to the recipe as part of the water measurement and to my surprise it was perfectly cooked and had amazing flavor.

Great rice cooker
Great rice cooker! Cooks rice well, but it does feel like it takes a little longer than a regular tiger rice cooker. This is the quick cook option that takes about 30 minutes, which is okay. I had previously said you couldn't set a time for it to cook, but upon further investigation you can!

Cooks perfectly well but longer cooking time
Cooks rice perfectly well. The biggest setback though is that it takes 3x longer to cook rice than my old Zojirushi. I usually cook 2 cups of rice and it takes 40 minutes to get done!

I love this rice cooker! It arrived fast and packaged well. I specifically wanted one that was made in Japan ( which this one is) and it seems very well built. I made my first pot of rice yesterday and it was restaurant quality. I wanted to eat all 3 cups right then! I can't speak for the longevity, but I will update my review if it dies on me anytime soon. :)

Lasted 7 months then stopped working. I tired to contact Tiger several times but they still have not replied back. It should be under warranty.

Keep an eye on the controls
I have been holding off on this review because I thought I had made human errors with the controls, but since I realized it's not ME I must warn buyers. This rice cooker has ruined quarts of uncooked rice grains for me. I am Asian and eat rice for much of my diet and I have used many rice cookers in my life without any trouble until I bought this one.
My rice cooker is almost always left on. I usually cook rice immediately after I finish what's in the cooker. Usually, I just take the pot out, place clean uncooked rice and water in, then press START. It was fine, then I began to notice that sometimes the START button wasn't pressed so the rice would get cooked in low heat, ruining it. At first I thought they were my mistakes, but after it began happening once every other week I knew I couldn't have been that careless. I kept a close eye on the cooker then and I noticed that sometimes when I put the rice in, closed it, and pressed START, it was ignored and reverted to KEEP WARM! When it ignores, I would have to press CANCEL, then in the menu, select PLAIN RICE or COOK, then press START-- otherwise it would just keep it warm on low! This happens randomly once every other week or so, so I have been keeping an eye on the controls and more careful when I cook new rice.
