Here at Yum Asia we are rice cooker experts and have worked with Japanese rice cooking technologies, learned exactly how they work and their best and most useful features. Bamboo is our most premium, high-end rice cooker – it’s ideal for the growing family or people who just love eating rice! Bamboo is the very first Induction Heating rice cooker for the UK and Europe and it has some unique and special rice cooking functions that are sure to please any rice lover and will give professional, restaurant quality rice. 

Bamboo uses our ‘Umai IH’ (or smart brain) to control it's advanced magnetic coil heating system that ensures perfect cooking every time...you can cook long grain, short grain (including sushi and glutinous rice), brown rice (short or long grain). Bamboo doesn’t just cook perfect rice, it cooks other grains like quinoa, cous cous, millet and pearl barley perfectly too. The add on functions include porridge that can be used for rice porridge or oat porridge, slow cook, steam (steam basket included), cake baking and crust (for Persian Tahdig).

Bamboo has a unique rice cooking feature for any type of white rice – ‘Yumami’ which was designed and developed by Yum Asia. This is a specific cooking cycle with different temperatures, it releases sugars contained in the rice to heighten the 'Umami' taste sense of the tongue and this phased rice cooking is said to make the rice tasted sweeter and 'moreish', hence the name 'Yumami'.

Bamboo also features a setting for GABA brown. This GABA setting soaks and ‘activates’ any type of brown rice to release the gamma-aminobutyric acid, or GABA in the brown rice and multiplies the rice nutrient value.

We often get questions about Zojirushi Induction Heating (IH) models like the US power models NP-NVC10/18, NP-HCC10/18 and NP-GBC05. There are only a couple of IH models made for 220-240v power and we have no plans to supply these because they haven’t passed any CE safety tests for use in the UK or Europe; therefore they cannot be legally supplied within the UK or Europe. The Zojirushi IH models would also very, very expensive to purchase (£550 upwards) for customers.

Bamboo is an Induction Heating rice cooker. We call our IH system ‘Umai IH’ (or smart brain) because it’s a highly advanced Induction Heating element with a fuzzy logic brain that ensures perfect cooking whatever you are cooking.

Bamboo has 7 rice cooking options – white long grain, white short grain, brown rice, Yumami (umami extra taste), GABA brown, crust (for Persian Tahdig rice) and quick cook. We have included some useful add-on features like steaming (there is an included steam basket), slow cook (which can be used for casseroles/stews or joints of meat), cake baking and porridge (oat or rice porridge).
