About this item 

The Instant™ Zest™ Plus 20 Rice and Grain Cooker with 20-cup capacity and 13 Smart Programs — including white rice, brown rice, quinoa, mixed grains, oatmeal, barley, bulgur, couscous, risotto, steam, sauté, slow cook & keep warm — makes cooking your family’s favorite rice and grains super-fast and one-touch easy. 

Beyond smart 

In addition to the Smart Program presets, you can cook any type of rice and grain fast and to fluffy perfection — from millet, farro and freekeh, to polenta, barley, rice pudding and more. Even hearty grains like spelt and wheat berries, which typically require lots of cooking time. The Zest™ Plus automatically adjusts cooking time to the amount of ingredients you add. 

Steams and warms, too 

Quickly steam veggies, fish, dumplings, tamales, cabbages, wontons and more with the touch of a button. You can even steam your fish or veggies while cooking rice in the bottom. 

Easy to use, easy to read 

Bright, bold display and status indicators let you know exactly where your food is in the cooking process.
