Producing restaurant-quality rice at home is made easy with this 10-cup (enough to feed 1-10 people) Zojirushi NS-YSQ18* micom fuzzy logic electric rice cooker and warmer.
This is a large capacity cooker with an attractive, unique design of a durable clear-coated bronze stainless exterior. The NS-YSQ10 features additional exclusive exclusive settings including thicker/thinner congee (porridge), short grain rice, slow cook, Premium 'taste' and GABA brown rice settings. This cooker is designed to be used on 220-240v, 50hz power and has a UK three pin plug.
The NS-YSQ18 has multi-menu selections which uses Micom (micro-computerised) Fuzzy logic technology to control the temperature for the efficient cooking of many different types of rice including white, sushi, porridge, brown, and sweet rice. There is also a quick cooking feature on this model. The micro computer chip inside the NS-YSQ18 automatically makes adjustments to temperature and heating time - it ensures perfect rice every time. This is what we call the 'yum factor'.
The Zojirushi NS-YSQ18 has an automatic keep-warm function which keeps rice at an ideal serving temperature until it's ready to be served. There is a countdown feature during the cooking cycle and when the rice is cooked a tune is played and the cooker automatically shifts to keep warm mode. For added convenience, the NS-YSQ18 has an extra-large LCD display with clock and timer function (for up to 13 hours in advance), a spherical inner non-stick, heavy duty cooking pan and spherical heating system and a convenient detachable inner lid for easy cleaning.
Accessories include a measuring cup, non-stick rice spatula and spatula holder.
