Staying alone means having to cook for just one person… and cooking rice for one person is nothing short of a headache. Rice cookers are mainly aimed at families looking to cook large portions of rice. In my experience, cooking small portions in a large cooker usually results in a lot of overcooked or sometimes even burnt rice.
The Rorico rice cooker does something quite unusual to make sure one can cook small portions of rice without worrying about any cooking catastrophe. While most rice cookers use boiling water and pressure to cook huge quantities of rice, Rorico does the same, but constantly stirs/scoops the rice in a circular motion while doing so. Gathering all the rice together helps it cook efficiently as well as making sure that no rice gets burnt or stuck to the heated surface of the cooker. Plus, points to the designer for making giving the rice cooker such a friendly aesthetic, because if anyone has cooked rice before, they’ll agree that it’s truly a scary task!
