Pressure IH Rice Cooker JPI-Y100/Y180

Enjoy the delicious taste of fluffy cooked rice,
brought out by the enhanced effect of a ceramic inner pot

The cooked rice compares favorably in taste with rice cooked in a clay pot

Heat is evenly distributed in the pot, ensuring each grain of rice is plump. The layers of different metals increase the thermal diffusion effect. The high temperature produced by induction heating (IH) is quickly and directly transferred to the rice.

Heat sealing ceramic coating
The outside of the pot is finished with a heat sealing ceramic coating which, in addition to the ceramic inner pot material coating, incorporates hollow glass beads to improve the heat storage performance. The “far-infrared ceramic coating” on the inside of the pot causes the rice and water to boil with fine bubbles as if the rice was cooked in a clay pot. These coatings produce a delicious taste comparing favorably with that of rice cooked in a clay pot, bringing out the natural sweetness of the rice and its springy texture.

The far-infrared radiation effect enhanced by an increase in amount of the ceramic inner pot material powder
Compared with a conventional Tiger product, the far-infrared radiation effect has been enhanced by about 1.0% because of an increase in the amount of the ceramic inner pot material powder used in the inner pot. *
The rice cooker traps the sweetness of the rice to cook fluffy rice.
*Based on a comparison of the inner pots between JPI-Y100 and the conventional Tiger product JPI-T100 (made in 2022). This is a comparison of integrated emissivity between the models when the temperatures of the outside bottoms of the pots are 160℃ (assuming actual temperatures while cooking rice). JPI-Y100: 83.56%, JPI-T100: 82.50% (based on our research)

Reproducing the heating technique used in cooking rice in a clay pot

UMAMITSUBUDACHI rice cooking program for cooking tasty and firm plump rice

Taking a cue from the way of cooking rice in a clay pot, the rice cooker lets the rice absorb water at a relatively low temperature for a long time and then rapidly raises the temperature to bring out the springiness of the rice and deepen the flavors of the rice.

Keeping cooked rice fluffy after hours

TSUBUDACHI keep-warm program for keeping rice warm and fluffy

TSUBUDACHI keep-warm program
The rice cooker uses a vapor sensor to detect a rise in temperature even while keeping the cooked rice warm, so that the amount of the evaporating water can be maintained at an appropriate level. This allows the form of the rice grains to be kept and prevents the rice from being pasty, so that the rice can be kept warm and fluffy for hours.

Pot-encasing IH + variable double-pressure IH

The IH heater encasing the inner pot heats a larger surface area of the pot. With this “pot-encasing IH” technique, higher heat and heat storage performance have been achieved.Heating a large surface area of the pot increases the amount of heat applied to the rice, bringing out the natural sweetness of the rice.
With the variable double-pressure technique using two large and small pressure balls, a pressure of about 1.25 atm is applied during cooking to bring out the stickiness and springiness of the rice and a pressure of about 1.05 atm is applied after cooking to steam the rice at high temperatures, so that firm rice grains can be produced with minimal clumping.

Delicious rice can be cooked even in small amounts

The rice cooker is provided with the
“Special Small Amount Cooking (SyouryouUmabiDaki) ” setting

Although it is thought to be difficult to cook a small amount of rice successfully using normal heating, Tiger has succeeded in reproducing heating to bring out the sweetness and plumpness of rice even with a metal pot by controlling heat appropriately to cook a small amount of rice. This is our solution for those who want to enjoy freshly cooked tasty rice in only the amount they need, whenever they want. In this menu setting, good-tasting rice in small amounts from 0.5 to 2 go can be cooked. *With JPI-Y180, rice in small portions from 1 to 3 go can be cooked in this setting.

Even on busy days

Enjoy the delicious taste
of “freshly cooked” rice conveniently

“Frozen Rice” setting

This setting employs a program that allows you to cook delicious rice suitable for freezing. In order to prevent defrosted cooked rice from being dry or defrosted rice reheated in a microwave oven from being pasty, the rice is given a longer time to absorb water in this menu setting than in the White Rice setting, so that the cooked rice will be plump to the core and the delicious flavor can be kept after the rice is frozen. You can keep your freezer stocked with frozen rice to allow you to enjoy the “delicious taste of freshly cooked rice” anytime.

“Small Portion and Quick” setting

The setting to cook a bowl of rice (0.5 go) in a minimum of about 15 minutes and 1 go in about 17 minutes* is provided so you can eat freshly cooked rice on busy days. Heat is efficiently transferred to the rice in each of the water absorption, heating, and steaming processes, enabling a small amount of rice to be cooked quickly.

*Only rice cookers with a capacity of 5.5 go can be used to cook 0.5 go of rice. It takes about 17 minutes to cook 1 go of rice (minimum amount) with a rice cooker with a capacity of 1 sho.
The time required for cooking may vary depending on the type of rice and room and water temperatures. (Based on our research)

“Premium” setting

This luxurious setting brings out all of the sweetness, springiness, aroma, stickiness, and softness that define delicious rice. The water-absorption process takes twice as long as the standard “White Rice” setting in order to bring out the original flavor of the rice.

“Sushi/Curry” setting

“Sushi/Curry” setting

The “Sushi/Curry” setting produces grainy rice perfect for hand-rolled sushi and curry.

Cook a healthy variety of
good-tasting rice easily

“Brown Rice” setting

This setting produces plump, delicious brown rice, which is usually difficult to cook with the right amount of water and heat.Brown rice is a good source of vitamin B1 and other nutrients.

“Mixed Grains” setting

This setting produces plump, delicious rice with mixed grains, which is usually difficult to cook in consideration of the right amount of water absorbed. You can easily take in abundant nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, and dietary fiber.

Antibacterial rice scoop

To ensure safer consumption of rice and more secure daily consumption of rice, a rice scoop certified by the Society of International Sustaining Growth for Antimicrobial Articles (SIAA) is adopted. The growth of bacteria is prevented thanks to the antimicrobial rice scoop with an antimicrobial effect.

Antibacterial rice scoop

The SIAA mark is a symbol for KOHKIN (or antibacterial) established by the Society of International Sustaining Growth for Antimicrobial Articles. Products that meet the three criteria of [1] antimicrobial properties (*1), [2] safety (*2) and [3] appropriate labeling (*3) may carry the SIAA mark.


The proportion of bacteria on the surface of the product must be equal to or less than 1/100 that of a non-treated product, and the antimicrobial effect must remain after durability tests. Antimicrobial properties are determined from the results of tests conducted in accordance with the international standard ISO 22196.
