Our Bamboo Induction Heating (IH) Rice Cooker is preparing to go on sale for the UK and Europe but before this happens we spent a very long time checking hundreds of details of our cookers to make sure they meet our exacting standards. These include, materials, components, cooking timings, bowl composition, cooking ability, safety, ability to withstand environmental factors, temperature and timings of phased cooking, roll tests, drop tests, power surge tests, moisture control and thermal electronics assessment and a lot more.  This is why our rice cookers are so durable and cook great rice time after time. With just 3 weeks to go until sale we are ready and so is Bamboo. Are you?

Take a look at a few photos of our factory testing laboratories.

Kenzai and Starbucks size comparison

We are excited to announce the sale of a new product from Yum Asia. This time it’s an environmentally friendly cup made from 100% organic Bamboo fibre. With a unique bamboo screw top lid this overcomes other similar cups issues which generally use snap on silicon that can cause taste issues for some users.

It comes in 16oz capacity which is just perfect for handling any size of fills from your favourite cafe or coffee shop.

Not only that but you can save money by taking it to your coffee shop as part of a global effort to re-use drinks containers and stop single use plastic.
