What Is Unique About Yum Asia Rice Cookers?
Our Kumo, Panda, Sakura and Bamboo models are made in dedicated factories that also make other premium rice cooker brands such as Cuckoo and Tiger. Everything from styling, components through to functionality has been thought with the customer in mind. We often found that some people liked certain features of one cooker model but also features of another cooker model but obviously didn’t want to buy both models. So we combined all the great stuff into our rice cookers that made them not just ordinary rice cookers but great rice cookers with useful add-on multi-cooker functionality.
Crucially, our rice cookers have a fuzzy logic brain which carefully controls the amount of heat applied to your food, the type of cooking stage to be applied and just the optimal cooking time to give you perfect results every time.
Add-on cooking functions such as slow cooking, steaming and cake baking which we made sure Kumo, Panda, Sakura and Bamboo could perform extremely well at. At the core of every great rice cooker is the inner bowl and so our rice cookers have premium, durable inner pots made out of a thick hard wearing 5 layered ceramic coating.
We gave them optimal capacities – up to 8 cups for Bamboo and Sakura which is between the usual 5.5 and 10 cup sizing of rice cookers to offer customer more flexibility in serving sizes. Kumo with the rice cooker standard 5.5 cups. Finally, for Panda we went with 3,5 cups to offer a reduced capacity cooker at a much lower price point yet with excellent quality features.
Bamboo is also the UK and Europe’s first IH rice cooker. Bamboo uniquely has a GABA brown setting and also a Yumami setting which add flavour to the rice due to specific changes in temperatures and cooking types and times.
