Default Zojirushi Induction Rice Cooker @ 5500 Elevation

I am in the research phase of purchasing a rice cooker. I read one
person's post that stated that she had a terrible time with using a
Zojirushi Fuzzy Logic Rice Cooker at 3000 elevation. I live at closer
to 5500 elevation and was wondering if anyone has had any trouble. I
don't want to put out the bucks if it is already a known fact that it
doesn't work at a mile high.

Great cooker! I am using it at sea level.. Seems that an altitude
adjustment should work.

I can't think of any reason why using induction would make any difference at
different altitudes. In general, rice cookers merely require an appropriate
adjustment of rice/water ratio to compensate for variations in type of rice
or the elevation where it is cocoked. You may have to experiment, but I'm
sure you can reach a workable formula.

I've got a cheap rice cooker and it works fine at a mile high. Like when I
cook rice in a regular pot, I need to add more water, but that's expected.

Not necessarily. Rice cookers work by sensing the temperature rise that
occurs when all or most of the water is gone. Since water boils at a lower
temp at high altitide (about 202 degrees at 5500) this is very likely to be
thrown off. Perhaps it does not cause a problem but there is certainly the
potential.

Don't have that one. We live at nearly 6000 ft and have a 'Signature
Gourmet' rice cooker. Works perfectly fine at that altitude. Why spend
extra?
