What is Sakura?
Sakura is Yum Asia's very own rice cooker. Yum Asia has been the home of Zojirushi in the UK and Europe for over 10 years; we have worked with Japanese rice cooking technologies and learned exactly how they work and their best and most useful features. We realised that the cookers did not always fit into everyone’s budget. We also realised that whilst some models ticked all the boxes of what a customer wants from a rice cooker, sometimes certain models didn't tick all those boxes. We therefore spent many months thinking and designing a rice cooker with functions that were most appealing to people that love Asian food with the core emphasis being based around cooking great tasting rice.
Sakura is a unique and stylish rice cooker which features several rice cooking options as well as useful multi-cooker options and a steaming function. This cooker is designed to be used on 220-240v, 50hz power and has a detachable power cord with a UK three pin plug.
Sakura's features and functions
Sakura 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 long grain, short grain and brown rice. There is a regular rice mode for cooking rice without refined cooking and steaming and a fast cook option if you want the rice cooked a little faster.
Sakura is designed to cook rice using 7 distinct phases to produce perfect rice every time and to carefully retain nutrients. These phases are Preheat, Absorb water, Heating, Boiling, Braising, Absorb water and then finally Keep warm (in this order). This phased cooking and adjustments in temperature are controlled using Sakura’s fuzzy logic processor and ensure perfectly cooked rice every time.
Unique to Sakura is it's 24 hours automatic keep warm - it keeps rice at an ideal serving temperature until it's ready to be served. There is a countdown indicator during the cooking cycle and when the rice is cooked a beep sounds and the cooker automatically shifts to keep warm mode. For added convenience, there is a pre-set time function which can be set up to 24 hours in advance, so you can have delicious rice ready for when you come in from work or nice, steaming hot porridge waiting on a cold winter's morning.
Sakura has unique Asian styling with a tough, hard-wearing and easy to clean thermoplastic polymer exterior. It has a state of the art Korean designed 'Motouch' control panel with an extra-large, cool ice blue LED display which is super-sharp and bright. Unlike other rice cookers, the control panel doesn't have any buttons, the 'Motouch' is pressure/touch sensitive and detects your finger when you place it on an icon
We have designed every aspect of Sakura with our customers in mind and decided to include a hard-wearing, 5 layer inner bowl with a 2mm thick ceramic coating which is BPA-free and PTFE-free, with easy-lift handles. The inner lid, steam cap and condensation collector are all removable for easy cleaning.
Like other fuzzy logic rice cookers, Sakura has a heating element on the inside bottom of the unit, however, it also has a unique 3D heating technology as well. This means that the heat from the heating element is dispersed around the sides of the bowl and heat also comes from the lid to apply heat downwards into the inner bowl. This 3D heating technology ensure the even cooking of rice and other dishes.
Accessories include a steaming basket, measuring cup, non-stick rice spatula and soup ladle.
