In Zojirushi’s product detail pages, they surface product images that quickly convey the unique selling propositions. In these images, each rice cooker’s “cooking type” is given a specific color - orange for MICOM (computer-controlled), salmon for conventional, pink for IH + Micom (IH = induction heating), and blue for AI that learns from past cooking experiences.
