Sakura Ceramic Bowl Rice Cooker

We are happy to announce Phase II of our Sakura expansion into the UK and Europe. The success of Sakura has beaten our expectations and is now officially our best selling rice cooker that Yum Asia has ever sold. Our sales rate is beyond our projections so we are therefore increasing our factory production schedule of this model for the 2nd and 3rd quarters of 2017 to ensure un-interrupted supply availability throughout the year.

Even more great news is that we are extending our special launch offer price of just £109 into April so get it while you can!

Sales of our Sakura Rice Cooker are on the up and to make it that little bit sweeter we have created a combo deal with another one of our creations the ‘Tafu’ thermal mug.

Watch our combo deal promo video for more information:

The Sakura Rice Cooker and Tafu Thermal Mug are both available in a Combo deal as part of our promotional launch of these products. You can see our sales page here for further details at www.yumasia.co.uk/sakura-combo. Available at a special price of only £119 for a limited time only.

Sakura and accessories

The response to the launch of Yum Asia’s first premium rice cooker has been much much better than expected. In particular, the ceramic cooking bowl, modern MoTouch LED control panel and add on cooking features that are actually useful to people seem to be the main reasons why Sakura is proving to be so popular.  Ceramic coatings are becoming increasingly attractive in kitchen appliances because some people consider this material to be safer for cooking than Teflon and other non-stick coatings. Sakura’s 5 layer cooking bowl is made with this in mind and is durable enough to handle even the most demanding cooking.

Yum Asia will now push into 2017 and expand Sakura rice cookers into the UK and European markets. However, we will make sure that we retain our 100% track record of providing superior customer service and that special ‘personal touch’ to ‘all’ of our customers backed up with a robust comprehensive 12 month warranty service.

Our sales forecast has now been revised upward due to more demand than anticipated. We appreciate your support and hope that it continues into 2017 and beyond!

The launch date of Sakura is now confirmed and will be November 25th, 2016. Sakura will then be made available to UK and European markets through our website www.yumasia.co.uk. We will meet our mid December deadline of 2016 for release to UK and European markets.

Early box design

We carefully chose our graphics design team to design Sakura’s packaging. First impressions are everything. If the box isn’t right then what does that say about the contents? We went through 26 revisions and over 15 designs before our final decision of the artwork of Sakura. We made sure that our colour schemes were appealing to all ages and gender and that the style of fonts, imagery and packaging shape was appealing to everyone.
