Our Yum Asia rice cookers continue to win awards and get great reviews. Mostly recently, Bamboo was awarded best rice cooker 2018 by T3 beating other brands such as Zojirushi, Sage by Heston Blumenthal, James Martin and Tefal. There is more goodness to come, from BBC Good Food soon! We will, of course, keep you posted
T3 magazine said
Comfortably the best rice cooker we’ve tried is the Yum Asia UMAI rice cooker. This cooks with a fabulously techy blend of induction, ceramic and ‘fuzzy logic’, has several novel cooking styles you won’t find elsewhere and cooks rice to perfection every single time
and they appreciated the usefulness of Bamboo to cook all types of rice saying:
Since being sent one of these, I have never eaten so much rice. It’s been quite the eye-opener. The Bamboo is Yum Asia’s range-topping device, and deploys a sizeable tech arsenal to justify its premium price. It also looks quite good, at least by rice cooker standards.
Cooking is via induction, the non-stick cooking bowl is very easy to keep clean, and there are programmes for every type of rice, as well as, slightly bafflingly, porridge. There are also slow-cooking programmes that can produce a more ‘yumami’ white rice and a supposedly more nutritious, definitely nuttier-tasting ‘GABA’ brown rice.The most bestest thing of all about the Bamboo, however, is that none of this requires any effort on your part whatsoever. You can use a timer if you want, but for most purposes all you do is toss in your rice, add the same volume of water, select the type of rice via the touch controls, then hit go.
