The other top end brands have something similar but the secret is to get a Induction Heat IM / micom rice cooker. You can cook a lot of other things besides plain rice.

The heating method known as Induction Heating (IH) occurs when a magnetic material is placed in a magnetic field. In our case, coils within the bottom of the rice cooker create the magnetic field. When the aluminum nonstick inner cooking pan with stainless steel outer lining is placed into the rice cooker and the unit is activated, a magnetic field is generated to create instant heat. Through this technology, the inner cooking pan itself becomes the heat source utilizing both high heat and fine heat adjustments to control the cooking process. The result—quicker, more evenly distributed heat for perfectly cooked delicious rice every time.

In more advanced models, computer chip technology is introduced and the rice cooker automatically makes adjustments in temperature and cooking time depending upon the program entered. These cookers are called micom rice cookers because they are fitted with a microcomputer chip. The top-of-the-line Zojirushi micom rice cooker is the Neuro Fuzzy®, a registered trademark name coined by Zojirushi to indicate a rice cooker which utilizes “fuzzy logic” through a micro computer chip to cook rice.

This computer chip is the brains of the unit and instead of simply switching on and off reacting to temperature, the rice cooker now makes small adjustments in temperature and cooking time according to what the thermal sensor senses. So you can program your rice to be hard or soft, dry or watery, as in the case of making rice porridge, the Asian comfort food. You can also program for cooking white, brown or sweet (glutinous) rice.
