Thanks for all that you do! Instead of breakfast in bed, we got creative and rolled this Springtime floral bouquet of sushi; plus we baked some fun donuts with a message. Happy Mom’s Day! This month we’re also showing fans our secret sauce—how our innovations over the years have kept us ahead of everyone else. At Zojirushi, we never rest.
Summon your sushi rolling skills and make this pretty floral sushi for Mom. We’ll help you get started—this creation is worth the effort! Based on Spring Flower Sushi Roll recipe.
Make 1/3 cup colored sushi rice with beets. Make two 4” x 7” rectangular egg omelet crêpes. Place 1 Tbsp. colored sushi rice on both ends of the rectangle omelet and fold toward the center.
Mince two asparagus tips and mix with 2 Tbsp. of white sushi rice to form a 4” long triangular roll as shown. Spread 1/3 cup white sushi rice and remaining colored rice on 4” x 7.5” nori sheet as shown and layer it all together. Roll your sushi and slice.
Make two 8” diameter egg omelet crêpes with 2 eggs. Top with 1.5 oz. smoked salmon, 1.5 baby corn and trim the omelet as shown. Roll up the omelet, then roll a second layer of omelet to thicken.
Spread a bed of 2/3 cup sushi rice on 8” x 7.5” sheet of nori. Line up the rolled egg omelet crêpes and two asparagus strips as shown. Roll your sushi and slice.
Let your breadmaker make the dough. Then shape it into letters, bake and decorate to create a special Mother’s Day surprise dessert. Based on Donuts Baked, Not Fried recipe.
Roll out the dough to 1/3” thickness. Cut into 2.5” x 2.5” squares and place on parchment paper.
Cut all letters at the same time and in thin shapes before dough can expand. Lightly spray dough with water and allow to rise for 30min.
Preheat oven to 400°F and spray again before placing in oven. Reduce heat to 250°F and set to bake all at the same time for 12min.
Cool the donuts completely before you decorate. Finish your Mom Donuts and treat her with a sweet surprise!

Before the invention of Rice Cookers and Breadmakers, cooking a pot of rice and baking a loaf of bread were not easy tasks. It was a bit time consuming, especially given the other necessary household chores. Not only have these kitchen helpers made life easier and more enjoyable, continuous innovation has added more features than ever. Here’s how we did it at Zojirushi.
Debut of the first rice cooker with a Keep Warm function. Before this, freshly cooked rice was transferred to a wooden tub called an ohitsu. With this function, rice could be kept warm and fresh for a very long time.
Our first Micom rice cooker using computerization to monitor heating and cooking. Before Micom technology, rice was heated to cook, then simply turned off. Small adjustments in the process helped produce better rice.
Pressure and Induction Heating was added to the process. By adding pressure during cooking, each grain of rice is enhanced, leading to a sweeter and softer type of cooked rice.

The first Home Bakery breadmaker is sold in Japan, with the ability to not only bake bread but also to make cakes and jam. This product was a huge hit in the U.S.
A breadmaker large enough to bake horizontal loaves is introduced. The addition of dual kneading blades allows everyone to bake the same size and shaped bread sold in stores.
The addition of heating elements under the lid prevents uneven rising and baking. A gluten free course is added, allowing home bakers to easily bake breads that support their dietary needs.
