Good morning, where’s breakfast? For all you early risers out there, or even you late risers, wouldn’t it be great to have breakfast ready and waiting when you get up in the morning? Your Zojirushi rice cooker or breadmaker has a feature that many of you may not know about—a timer that can pre-set this for you. This is life changing if you think about it; if you can have hot rice or fresh bread waiting for you when you get out of bed, why wouldn’t you? This month we’ll show you how to use it to make some of our breakfast recipes.


Sleep in today while your Zojirushi Rice Cooker or Breadmaker cooks for you, so you can wake up to hot steamed rice or freshly baked bread.

Any Japanese breakfast must have fish. This Baked Sea Bass with Yuzu Pepper will get you going on your way! Easy to make with ingredients you probably already have.

Timing Tips For The Rice Cooker and Breadmaker
The Timer setting on your Zojirushi differs, depending on the model you own. Be sure to check your instruction manual on how to make the best use out of the type of rice cooker or breadmaker you have. Why use the timer? We can think of a bunch of reasons, but here are some scenarios where having our products do the work for you can save time, save stress and save space in your brain. And these days, we can all use the extra space, right?


Before you leave for work or school, set the timer. Stop stressing about getting home in time, in case you have to do overtime or need to stay late.


Before a busy day of tasks and errands, set the timer. It’s one less thing you have to worry about on your checklist, which is a great way to get things done.


Before your guests arrive for dinner, set the timer. With the rice or bread already done, you and your friends can cook together and make it a real party.


Before you forget and regret it, set the timer. Forgetting to prepare the rice and having to do it at the last minute is the worst. No worries, we got you.

Have you ever watched a short-order cook flip eggs and fry hash browns at a coffee shop? There’s no doubt their jobs are made easier with all that space they have on the griddle, right? An electric griddle can do the same for you at home, especially when you’ve got a gang to serve. There’s enough space to do several foods at the same time, and the walls of your frying pan won’t get in the way. You can even bring the griddle to the dining table so you can cook, serve and eat with everyone together!
