Easily cook other freshly cooked rice in the microwave ♪ I tried using the microwave oven cookware "Immediately Cooked Rice Maker" developed by skaters.
As the name implies, it is a container for cooking rice in a microwave oven. You can cook in small amounts such as 1 go and 1/2 go, and you can also make porridge by increasing the proportion of water.
When cooking 1 go of rice, put it in a container with water and absorb water for a while (about 20 minutes in summer and about 30 minutes in winter). Cover the inner and outer lids, heat in a microwave oven (500W) for about 10 minutes, and steam for about 20 minutes to complete. It has been transformed into a moist and glossy appearance, but how about the taste?
The fluffy rice grains are heated to the core and have a chewy texture. Compared to rice cooked in a rice cooker, the flavor is slightly lower, but it is not particularly noticeable. The steaming time is about 20 minutes, but I wonder if it can be a little shorter if you want to sprinkle curry or make fried rice. When I tasted it again a few hours later, the moist and chewy texture was well maintained.
Duckboards are included in the accessories, and it is also a nice point to steam vegetables such as pumpkin and frozen dumplings. By putting water under the drainboard and letting out steam firmly, foods that tend to be hard in microwave ovens will be finished with a moderate amount of water. The amount that can be steamed at one time is not large, but it seems to be useful for preparing side dishes and side dishes for lunch boxes. It can also be used to reheat Chinese steamed buns.
The approximate size of "Immediately cooked rice maker (for 1 go cooking)" is width 15.5 x depth 14.0 x height 12.8 cm. It is available on various mail-order sites, and the price range is around 1,000 yen. There is also a model for 2 combinations, so why not choose one that suits your lifestyle?
