Best Small Japanese Rice Cookers – 2017

It sucks to live alone right? Especially when you want to eat some real home cooked rice, it is time consuming that you night as well eat out or take out. Did you know Japan has a lot of unmarried and not in a relationship population? According to this article published by Japan Times, based on the survey of Japanese people aged 18 to 34, 70% of the men and 60% of women are unmarried or not in a relationship. That means a lot of Japanese people have to cook rice for one person, right?! Well, Japanese technology is one of the best in the world and I would like to introduce you to small Japanese rice cookers for all the singles out there. Make sure if you are purchasing one of these for use overseas, check the power supply/consumption and ask your local electrician.
