Yes, it really is all that and more. Expensive you might think for a rice cooker, but add up all the times you go out for Japanese in search of lovely food. And then think of what you've been putting up with using that $59 tin can from the local dept store. No comparison! The Zojirushi makes perfect fluffy rice, the first time out. As for YUM ASIA, that has to be the fastest service ever from the UK to Australia. I ordered the thing last week, had barely enough time to dream about its arrival, then the knock came on the door. Nice one guys! Thank you for the quick service, and the Zojirushi is FANTASTIC.
I ordered over the weekend and it arrived on Tuesday. Haven't had a chance to use it yet but the service so far has been exemplary - the fastest customer service I have ever experienced from an retailer and great advice on the right model for me. I have recently started making bentos for lunch and really wanted a rice cooker with a delayed timer function so this model is perfect as it can steam at the same time. Very much looking forward to making coconut rice and takikomi gohan!
I have wanted a Zojirushi for a long time, but it put me off because I thought it was essentially a one function appliance. I was really happy when I found out they had one with a steam option, this was the push I needed to buy. I have owned other rice cookers and this completely blows them away – no more crunchy rice on the bottom of the bowl! I have so far used my TSQ10 for brown rice, sushi rice and plain basmati rice and it tastes so different to rice cooked in the other cookers I have owned. It is soooo tasty! I have also experimented with steaming veg which turned out really tasty as well. Next on my list to try is the cheesecake and sushi and I really must use the timer to have my porridge ready for me in the morning.
Thank you so much for the great service, my TSQ10 was delivered a day and a half after I ordered it and you speedily answered all my questions (even though they probably were stupid!). I am so happy with my purchase and it looks so stylish in my kitchen. Thank you again Yum Asia!
