It can be attached on either the right or left side. The inner pot of the rice cooker has a non-stick coating with markings etched in the side. These markings correspond to the included measuing cup. If you add 1 cup of rice, you simply fill the inner pot to the water-line marked 1.
This Zojirushi cooker cooks up to 5-1/2 cups of uncooked rice which comes to about 10 cups of cooked rice. The manual says that half a cup of uncooked rice can feed 1 person but that seems a little small and you may want to try and see what portion works best for you.
One of the best things about the Zojirushi NS-TGC10 is that is the detachable inner lid. This is a feature that many rice cookers are lacking. Most rice cooker lids to just be wiped down, but this one can actually be removed for washing.
Another great feature of this Zojirushi rice cooker is the Liquid Crystal clock display with timer setting. You can set your rice cooker to start at a specific time of day to start cooking. So you can program it to have rice ready for you in the morning for breakfast, when you come home from work or anytime you want it The Zojirushi will also keep your rice warm for you automatically after it finishes cooking with the keep warm feature.
Customer Reviews of the Zojirushi NS-TGC10

“This is my second Zojirushi rice cooker with fuzzy logic. I received the first one as a gift 10 years ago and it still works fine. We got this one, because we wanted a smaller cooker that didn’t take up as much space in our overloaded kitchen. Our old cooker is a 10-cup model and worked flawlessly. The new model is much improved. The retractable cord is an excellent feature and the cooker is easy to program. It is also easy to clean and nonstick. Cooks rice to perfection. Yes, it’s expensive, but it does an excellent job and it’s built to last. We had originally gotten a cheaper brand ($40) to replace our old Zojirushi. Big mistake. It lasted less than a year. Zojirushi is much higher quality and we look forward to another decade or more of regular use. Highest recommendation!!” – By A. Stagg
“This rice cooker is perfect. You can cook enough for having guests over or for making a larger rice dish but also cook just enough for 1 or 2 people. It’s very easy to use and can even cook cakes which I have done a couple times with great results. The timer function is great for being gone at work all day and coming home to already cooked rice. Its very easy to clean and maintain and the rice is perfect every time.” – By Leon
