Producing restaurant-quality rice at home is made easy with this 10-cup (enough to feed 1-10 people) Zojirushi NL-AAQ18* micom fuzzy logic electric rice cooker and warmer.

The NL-AAQ18 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. This Zojirushi model is made in Japan and has the same inner bowl and inner lid as the NS-TSQ18.

The NL-AAQ18 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 NL-AAQ18 automatically makes adjustments to temperature and heating time – it ensures perfect rice every time. This is what we call the ‘yum factor’.

The Zojirushi NL-AAQ18 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 NL-AAQ18 has a low light LCD display with clock and timer function (for up to 13 hours in advance), a 1.5mm Sumiflon/Teflon coated inner bowl and a convenient detachable inner lid for easy cleaning.

Yes. Zojirushi rice cooker are factory made for UK and European 220-240V, 50Hz power supply.

No. USA units are not compatible with UK and European power supply (they are 110V and 60Hz) and you would need to purchase a bulky and expensive transformer to convert the voltage so you could use it. Transformers for stepping up voltage take up a lot of electricity when converting voltage, are bulky and don’t convert the cyclical electricity frequency of an appliance (ie they don’t convert from 60Hz to 50Hz). We have had several customers who have tried to use US rice cookers with a voltage converter and they do not work or broke within 6 months.

Japanese models are confusing as they are available in both 110V and 240V power ratings. Please take care if going this route.

Yes. The display and menu is in English and the supplied manual is also in English.

Note that there are no other language options are available for the manual.

Zojirushi rice cookers have lithium batteries that are used only for retaining timer and cooking memory for if there is a power interruption. The batteries have an estimated lifespan of around 5-10 years depending on use.

These batteries are not essential to the operation of the rice cookers but can be replaced only at authorised Zojirushi service centres if you feel you need to have it replaced. After warranty you would need to contact one of these centres if you wish the battery to be replaced. 

We have no plans at all to sell Zojirushi Induction Heating models because the Zojirushi IH models for 220-240V power haven’t passed any CE safety tests for use in the UK or Europe so they therefore cannot be legally supplied within the UK or Europe, so this is why we do not supply them. Not only is there a voltage difference but there is a difference in the frequency of electricity used. The Zojirushi IH models are also very, very expensive to purchase (around £150-200 more than our conventional rice cooker models).

We do have our own branded Induction Heating rice cookers, Fuji YUM-IH07 and Bamboo YUM-IH15/2/B. These are the first IH rice cooker to be made for the UK and Europe. It has many unique rice cooking features which Yum Asia developed using our rice cooker/cooking expertise.

    This is only my second day using my new AAQ, but so far, I love it!

    I realise how cliched the phrase "you can actually taste the difference" is, but in this case, you actually can, very easily! My previous idea of perfectly cooked rice was what came out of our previous cheap rice cooker. What comes out of the AAQ is completely different and so much tastier!!

    Not to mention that not a single grain of rice gets stuck to the bowl: with our previous rice cooker, we had to bin probably 5-10% of the rice because so much got stuck to the bottom each time.

    Steaming vegetables while cooking the rice gives very tender and tasty results, too!

    And I haven’t even started exploring what else it can do yet! It’s a lot of money, but I believe it’s a very good investment.

    I am so happy with my purchase, "it really does do what it says on the tin" I thought my previous cooker was good but the zojirushi rice cooker is truly amazing. I just can’t sing enough praises, from purchasing the product to the delivery, everything was good. Thank you yum asia.

  3. Cedric (France) (verified owner)

    I received my ricecooker 4 days after my purchase. The power cable used is a standard one used on many products (computer monitor, printer, …) so it’s very easy to find one with french plug.
    I’m really happy with that product, the rice is really great.

    Thank you!
