What is an IH (Induction Heating) rice/pressure cooker? How are they different to conventional pressure rice cookers?
IH rice/pressure cookers are also classified as pressure cookers. All pressure cookers basically build pressure inside the pot to cook food. This process enables the rice cooker to reach a higher boiling point than when it is at a standard pressure (1 atm/105 Pa->100 degrees celsius). Pressure cookers can reach 120 to 150 degrees celsius. IH rice/pressure cookers build more pressure, and thus have higher boiling point than a conventional pressure rice cooker. IH pressure cookers use induction heating technology (induction coils build electromagnetic induction to heat up the whole stainless steel inner pot), whereas conventional pressure cookers use a heating pan to heat up the inner pot.
3. What are the benefits of IH pressure cookers?
As explained in FAQ 2, the rice cookers can reach higher boiling points. Not only does it reach a higher boiling point, but it shortens the time of cooking. When food/grain is cooked at higher heat within a short time, the food becomes softer and tender. As the whole inner pot (bottom and sides) is heated up instead of only bottom of the the inner pot (conventional rice/pressure cookers use a heat pan on the bottom), the rice is more evenly cooked. This is what makes the Cuckoo very popular in international markets.

The IH 10 CRP-CHSS1009FN (Dark Grey), was excellent.
Made of very good materials, quite heavy and sturdy, and cooked rice very well.
I would allow 530mm height minimum to allow the rice cooker to open fully, otherwise you might have trouble getting the pot out. Best if you can access the rice cookers rear via the sides, occasionally you may want to clean the plastic steam condensation drip tank at the back.
For normal white steam rice, I used the “glutin rice” button, followed by the “pressure cook” button.
I used same number cups of water as the rice, e.g. 2 cups water = 2 cups rice.
Make sure you drain the rice thoroughly after washing for accurate water measurements.
When finished, Cuckoo rice cooker sings a song called “stir the rice”, so make sure you stir it.
This airs the rice of excess moisture, then after a few minutes, my rice started to gloss and shine a little,
Smell and tasted perfect, better than my parents zojirushi rice cooker.
I was using my parents rice, and noticed that when I microwaved the left over rice, it reheated and revived extremely well. The same could not be said of my temporary cheapo rice cooker, which cooked to soft, and microwave reheated too hard. Its strange to think that even from the exact same bag of rice, different rice cookers delivery very different results.
There’s only two of us (my wife and I), but I would buy the 10 cup capacity for sure, the extra capacity is extremely helpful for stirring the rice on completion, and really helps with steaming things too.
Very few detailed video reviews on youtube, but I found it very good rice cooker, one of the best I’ve ever seen.
Cooks any rice into perfection

I used a really average rice to cook using my cuckoo and it made the rice nice and fluffy and delicious! Really yum.

Wow, this cooker makes fantastic rice and it made from very sturdy materials (particularly the insides). It looks like it is going to last a long time and it is also nice to know that spare parts are stocked and available from within Australia.
