Big fan, use it every other day. Produces beautiful rice, an hour for white/sushi rice, 110 mins for brown. Timer function (didn't think I'd use it) is simple to use, remembers last setting. Set the rice menu, push timer, push start, it's that simple. The steam basket is useful for cooking a whole meal. Wild rice, salmon straight from freezer, and a couple of boiled eggs. All done in an hour, no hassle. Vegetables can be inserted halfway through. The bake function is awesome, I've tried a couple of cakes now. The banana cake from YumAsia blog is fantastic. I've added chopped walnuts and dates to top before baking, it doesn't last the day.
An expensive, debated purchase, I'm glad I went for it. The steam, bake functions make it a lot more versatile. Top product and top service from YumAsia.
Very happy with my first rice cooker. Best Jasmine rice I'be ever had! Keep warm setting keeps rice in perfect condition for hours which is so handy when cooking. Donna and Neil very helpful with prompt advice.
This is my first rice cooker; we have decided for this model since we are a family of four and our rice consumption is not so high. In Italy, we usually eat rice cooked as "risotto", but we like also sushi. After tasting the rice cooked by this excellent appliance, we now eat very often a simple white rice with soy sauce and we really enjoy it!
Obviously, the cooking result is excellent. For sushi or white rice, my advice is to use the "riso originario" available in Italy. An alternative is "riso Roma". Better not to try other rice flavours since the results will be too sticky.
In conclusion, highly recommended!!
Yum Asia service was excellent, fast delivery, precise notice, delivery time well respected.
Great service from Yum Asia. Very efficient. It took only 3 days to receive my Rice cooker. I just get my Rice cooker today. That's a great product because made in japan (= quality). Only one negative point on this Rice cooker : the inner cooking pan is not easy to remove and a bit annoying. I am happy of this purchase and absolutely no regrets.
I recommend Yum Asia and this Rice cooker. Great service from Ups also.
I ordered a rice cooker from this UK company and received it within 2 days. The Yum Asia website is based in the UK with their products shipped from the UK (not Asia!) which I found very re-assuring. They also have a very good warranty policy which happily I have not needed. I'm impressed all around with the buying process and even had several questions answered very promptly by the live chat on the Yum Asia website. The Rice cooker itself is Zojirushi so of course works flawlessly and seems extremely well made. It's my first such purchase but would happily recommend Yum Asia and the Zojirushi products they sell to everyone. Five stars from me.
