Producing restaurant-quality rice at home is made easy with this large 10-cup (enough to feed 1-10 people) Zojirushi NS-TSQ18* micom fuzzy logic electric rice cooker and warmer.
This is a larger size cooker with an attractive, unique design of a durable clear-coated stainless steel and dark brown exterior. It will cook rice for 1 person just as well as rice for 10 people!
The NS-TSQ10 features an additional setting of a steaming function. This cooker is designed to be used on 220-240v, 50hz power and has a UK three pin plug.
The NS-TSQ18 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 white, sushi, porridge and brown rice. There is also a quick cooking feature on this model. The micro computer chip inside the NS-TSQ18 automatically makes adjustments to temperature and heating time - it ensures perfect rice every time. This is what we call the 'yum factor'.
The Zojirushi NS-TSQ18 has an automatic keep-warm function. There is a countdown feature during the cooking cycle and when the rice is cooked a tune is played and the cooker automatically shifts to keep warm mode. For added convenience, the NS-TSQ18 has a low light LCD display with clock and timer function (for up to 13 hours in advance), a Sumiflon/Teflon coated inner bowl and a convenient detachable inner lid for easy cleaning.
Accessories include a steaming basket, a measuring cup, non-stick rice spatula and spatula holder.

We only stock Zojirushi fuzzy logic rice cookers. We have no plans to sell Zojirushi Induction Heating models because the Zojirushi IH models for 220-240v power haven’t passed any CE safety tests (nor RoHS compliance) for use in the UK or Europe so they therefore cannot be legally supplied within the UK or Europe. Fuzzy logic models are quite straight forward and are manufactured in a specific way; Zojirushi do not release any kind of information about their rice cookers, so we cannot be sure the IH models are made in the usual way with usual components. With IH models there are a lot of additional CE Certification tests that have to be passed around the Electromagnetic Compatibility tests (as they are essentially magnetic coils that power the rice cooker), so it’s not as straight forward as fuzzy logic models.Zojirushi IH rice cookers are very expensive to purchase for us initially, so this would mean a really high price for customers that we just cannot justify. For a 5.5 cup Zojirushi IH model you’d be looking at a sale price of more than £450, for a 10 cup Zojirushi IH model it would be closer to £500. Once the majority of customers learn of they high price we’d have to charge for Zojirushi IH models (even if we could get them through the CE Certification), they have told us they would like IH models, but not at any price.The only IH model that is certified for use in the UK and Europe is our own branded Induction Heating rice cooker model, Bamboo. Bamboo UMAI Induction Heating rice cooker as it has similar functions to the YSQ10 and some superior features to this model as well
