Our latest product from Kinto is their KAKOMI Rice cooker, designed to be used on gas cooktops to make rice with a delightful texture.
White rice is essential to the food culture in Japan. We wanted to bring you the pleasing experience of eating rice freshly cooked with a donabe, the Japanese traditional clay pot—the moment of opening the lid and the steam rising is joyous and irresistible. Designed with simplicity and usability in mind, it is a great addition to any table settings. The heat retaining quality of donabe lets you serve warm and fresh rice on the table.
So what makes this particular rice cooker so special? It all comes down to materials and thoughtful design. The pot's ceramic material releases far-infrared radiation which heats the ingredients inside. Putting the pot over direct fire increases this effect, resulting in a perfectly fluffy texture for rice. The rounded shape of the pot creates convection for each grain to be cooked evenly. Having both the inner and outer lids generate the right level of pressure to cook fluffy rice. It also prevents contents from boiling over.
The KAKOMI Rice cooker has thoughtful details such as the reference lines inside the pot. For 1 cup of rice, add water until it reaches the bottom line. For 2 cups of rice, add water until it reaches the top line. Adjust the amount of water accordingly to suit your taste and the different types of rice. to measure it out the pot includes a cup that measures 1 cup of rice and 180ml of water. For cooking 1 cup of rice, add 1 cup + 20ml of water, and for 2 cups of rice, add 2 cups + 40ml of water.
Not just rice
KAKOMI is a heat-resistant ceramic pot that tolerates a heat-temperature difference of 500 degrees Celsius. If you do manage to burn the pot simply turn down to low heat, add 1 tablespoon of baking soda, and let it simmer for 2-3 minutes. Turn off the heat, let it cool, and rub with a melamine sponge. Cleaning is easy as the pot’s water absorption rate is extremely low, making sure moisture that can cause odors and stains do not seep in. This makes it great for more than just rice. You can cook dishes with spices like paella one day and make white rice the next day.
