The question was posed: Is there a difference in taste in rice made in a plain one-button rice cooker vs. a fuzzy logic rice cooker vs. an induction rice cooker? Can you let me know if you have a preference or opinion?
I totally cut and pasted the below from a website called Sacred Rice here.
What Is a Fuzzy or Neuro Fuzzy Logic Rice Cooker?
Fuzzy logic is a form of non-linear logic. It deals with approximation and inference rather than precision. Fuzzy logic is measured by a range of variables. Fuzzy logic has a wide range of applications in the areas of control systems and artificial intelligence.
Neuro-fuzzy refers to artificial neural networks and fuzzy logic. Neuro-fuzzy logic resembles the human-like reasoning with the ability to derive “IF-Then” rules.
When fuzzy logic or neuro fuzzy logic is applied in a rice cooker, the rice cooker can “think” on its own via a micro-computerized chip. It is able to discern different types of rice or grains to yield optimally cooked rice. Then it determines the cooking time and temperature according to the thermal sensor’s calculation.
What Is a Induction Heating Rice Cooker?
Induction heating is a non-contact heating process using radio frequency electricity through an electrical conductive material. Induction heating is the most advanced heating technology. It has numerous applications such as industrial and household appliances.
In the context of a rice cooker, an induction heating “zone” is built underneath an inner pot. The inner pot is like a heat conductor. An alternating electric current flows in the external vessel where the inner pot is housed to produce resistive heating. The surrounding heating cooks the rice or food in the inner pot. The inner pot has to be of high ferrous metal content at the base. Examples of such are cast iron, black metal or iron pans.
