I live in France and had previously purchased a Zojirushi from a company in Asia, what a mistake! It worked for some days but then it broke down and the company refused to replace or repair, so my money was wasted. I would advise anyone considering buying to buy with confidence from Yum Asia, their warranty is very good and from my past experience it’s important!

I got my sakura rice cooker today, i am super super happy. the ceramic bowl looks really sturdy and is absolutely perfect. I made my first jasmine rice just about an hour ago and it was super fluffy and nothing stuck to the bottom. Cant wait to use other functions such as porridge, slow cook, and others. Thank you so much yum asia for making this rice cooker with ceramic bowl you guys are fantastic!!!!

I bought one of these for my 3 year old daughter to take to playgroup. It has been fantastic- unbroken so far! It creates a temperature gradient inside so that the soup stays nice and hot at the bottom, the rice insulates the soup, so you can just about get away with dried fruit, bread etc in the top container. The school love it and it's great that the kid is getting a good warm meal before she goes out to School

I'd been looking for a Zojirushi water heater for so long and had given up hope, then I stumbled across your website. The CSQ30 is everything I hoped it would be, it has a handy timer so I can fill and programme for when I wake up in the morning and I have soon got used to having hot water instantly at the press of a button! Thank you for bringing such a wonderful product to the UK. Best wishes and thanks again

The ordered rice cooker arrived here in Germany. Delivery time was excellent because the rice cooker I ordered Monday noon time arrived already Thursday noon time here. Absolutely outstanding service from you. (5*****) Today we enjoyed rice made with the new cooker. Everything was perfect. (We used before Zojirushi equipment already for 15 years). Thanks again and best regards!

I decided to buy this model because I was interested in the GABA feature. I'm not sure how much GABA is activated, but the brown rice I've cooked using this setting is absolutely delicious. I can eat it by itself. Definitely the best brown rice I have tasted. The normal brown rice setting doesn't produce as flavorsome rice. Sushi rice is cooked to perfection using the sushi setting.

Instruction Manual for Zojirushi CV-CSQ30 VE Hybrid water heaterYum Asia warranty information for Zojirushi water heater220-240V power for use in UK & Europe. Supplied with a 3-pin UK plug/power cord, the power cord is detachable.


We often get asked questions about the products we sell, here is a selection of the questions which customers most often ask us.



Does this water heater work with UK or European power?

Yes. This water heater is factory made for UK and European 220-240v, 50hz power supply.


What plug/power cord is this product supplied with?

This water heater is supplied with a 3-pin UK plug. However, if you live in Europe you can easily purchase an adapter plug. Click here for a picture of the power cord. Please note that this product has a detachable power cord so if you prefer you can just change this.


Where is this water heater made?

The Zojirushi products we sell are either made in dedicated Zojirushi factories in China or Japan. Only Zojirushi products are made in these factories; Zojirushi manufacturing standards are extremely high and the factories have a reputation of excellence with build quality and detailed quality control. The CV-DSQ40 model is made in Japan.



Does it cost a lot to keep a Zojirushi water heater on all the time?

No. A lot of the energy in a traditional kettle is wasted because of poor insulation, as water is converted to steam before it switches off. There is also excess water which is heated and left in the kettle but not used - most people overfill their kettles. The inner pot of these water heaters are insulated therefore the energy goes into the water, no steam is produced and very little energy is needed to keep it warm. It is estimated that maintaining the water temperature costs less than 7 pence per day (depending on electricity tariffs). Remember that each time you boil a kettle it costs you each time it is boiled - you are probably heating more water than you need too every time you boil your ordinary kettle and then letting it cool. These Zojirushi water heaters retain most of the energy used, therefore saving you money to use on other things!

Ever wanted the convenience of boiling water available at the touch of a button? Well it is as simple as this Zojirushi hot water heater - no more waiting to make hot drinks, noodles or soups. You just fill it up with water, switch it on and forget about it - until you're ready for hot water. No Asian kitchen is without one!

The Zojirushi CV-DSQ40 saves energy - it is the latest technology for hot water heaters and has energy savings of 75% over other standard water heaters. See the specifications below for more information on energy consumption. This water heater is designed to be filled and left on continuously, so boiling water is available any time for hot drinks, 'instant' foods like ramen, filling flasks or general cooking use. The water heater doesn't need to be emptied, just top it up with cold water when hot water is not needed - it takes between 25-35 minutes to bring the water to 98°C for the initial boil.

This Zojirushi super-VE Hybrid water heater has a similar footprint to your traditional kettle, the LCD screen displays what temperature the water inside is and once the initial boil has finished the unit will play a tune to let you know. The unit creates a vacuum insulated seal to ensure the water is kept at the highest temperature possible whilst conserving energy. This water heater is designed to be left on for 24 hours, seven days a week and has an automatic shut off feature to stop it boiling dry or if the lid isn't shut properly. Unique to the super-VE Hybrid model is the Thermal Insulation Keep Warm mode - by selecting this you save energy as the power to the unit is shut off and the water is kept at the correct temperature by the thermal insulation built into the water heater. There is an easy to use energy saver timer function which can be programmed up to 10 hours in advance to have hot water ready for when you wake up in the morning or get in from work. By using the different keep warm settings you can save up to 25% electricity.

The only maintenance required is to descale the interior of the water heater at intervals depending on the scale build-up. Full instructions for descaling are provided in the manufactures manual and requires simple citric acid cleaner like a traditional kettle or coffee maker.

This is my first water heater and overall I'm very impressed. Having boiling water available at an instant is very handy, not just for drinks but also for cooking too. The unit always keeps the temperature at 98C and boiling 4 litres of water from cold takes about 20 minutes. The unit is actually more attractive than it appears in the pictures, especially once the big sticker has been removed, and it looks great on the kitchen worktop. The only reason I've knocked a star off is due to the strangely primitive timer functionality. It only allows you to set it from 6 - 10 hrs in one hour increments. For an expensive Japanese product this seems very limited! What I'd like to see is a 24hr clock incorporated into the display and the ability to set the timer for any time you like. That doesn't seem like a lot to ask in this day and age. Having the ability to set the timer with more precision would also surely yield even greater energy savings so this seems like a bit of a missed opportunity.

I recently replaced my CSQ30 with this newer model as it was a bigger capacity. It works as one would expect from zojiroushi...effortlessly! The extra litre capacity does make a big difference also the new colour works better with my kitchen.Thanks YumAsia.
