What is a RICHMEN?

A RICHMEN is a commercial noodle maker that produces authentic Japanese noodles quickly and consistently. We chose its name because “MEN” is the Japanese translation for “noodles” and “RICH” reflects the machine’s ability to produce an abundance of fresh noodles with precision.

With a focus on delicious ramen noodles, RICHMEN machines will have customers raving about your high-quality dishes and coming back for more. Countless noodle restaurants across the globe have been relying on RICHMEN noodle-making machines for their user-friendly features and consistent output since 1990.

Don’t take our word for it

Listen to what some of our satisfied customers have to say about their RICHMEN machines!

"I wanted to create more value and a bigger WOW! Factor for my customers.

Serving a finer quality of ramen has done exactly that. My restaurant customizes noodles for each ramen dish it serves. We own a RICHMEN 1 machine and it makes it easy for us to craft our noodles and serve customers quickly. I also appreciate the fact that I’ve met Yamato personally.”

Motenashi Kuroki – Tokyo, Japan

“I saw no point to serving expensive, frozen, low-quality noodles made by someone else.

Yamato is a company unlike any I have dealt with in the past. I am delighted with my RICHMEN and added all of the extra features that came with it.”

Koie Ramen - Oslo, Norway

“Investing in a RICHMEN was a major turning point when I opened my own ramen shop.

Now, seeing the machine in action absolutely blows my mind. I can’t believe how stable and consistent the dough is. Each noodle is cut perfectly and I continue to be astounded by high-quality noodles!”

This machine’s main focus is on high-production capacity. It does not include a dough-mixing machine. We recommend using the Yamato 25 kg single mixer (M25) to reach the maximum level of productivity and noodle quality. Using the same technique as hand-kneading, the Yamato 25 kg mixer offers a perfect balance between mixing time and rotation rate. The Yamato 25 kg single mixer will not damage gluten structures inside noodle dough (approx. 60 rotations/min).  These machines are compliant with various worldwide safety standards (CE, NSF/ANSI8, CSA, UL763 certified), which means they can be used in U.S.A., Canada, EU countries, and other parts of the world.

“We were anxious at first about relying on Yamato, a company halfway across the world.

But, in hindsight, we are incredibly happy we chose Yamato products and services! Our multi-national staff is confident that RICHMENs are the easiest, most reliable noodle-making machines on the market. At almost 400 servings each day – no hitch, no glitch – just delicious noodles!”
