While there were many evaluations that "this is convenient!", There were also pros and cons such as "it spilled and did not cook well" and "it was a little hard", so I tried to see how it was actually used.

How to use rice cooking mug (for 1 go)

The rice cooking mug is available in two colors, black and beige. Made of stoneware, it has a heavy weight when you hold it in your hand. The impression is that it is a small clay pot rather than a mug for drinking. Comes with a lid.

Mug with a profound feeling

According to the instructions, prepare 150g (5.29oz) of rice and 180ml (6.09us fl oz) of water. First, drain the water by removing the rice as usual. Put this and water in a rice cooking mug, cover it and leave it for about 30 minutes. Let the rice absorb water.

Close the lid and leave it for a while

After 30 minutes, put it in the microwave with the lid on and heat it at 500W for about 7 minutes.

Heat in the microwave

At this time, there is a high probability that it will spill out . This time around the remaining 2 minutes, the lid and the lid started to dance, and it spilled out. Stop heating once, let it settle for a few seconds, heat it again, and when it is about to spill, stop it ... Repeat 2-3 times, and finally the heating is completed.

A little spilled ...

Take it out of the microwave and let it steam for 10 to 15 minutes. And 15 minutes later, when I open the lid ... oh!

It's done!

The shiny rice is cooked properly! Isn't this expected to taste?

I tried to eat rice cooked with a rice-cooking mug (for 1 go)

Now, a bite

When I try to eat it ... Yeah, it's rice. However, the texture is slightly dry, and the rice grains have a little core left and are hard. Did you run out of water ... or water absorption time?

Delicious but a little hard

So I tried reducing the amount of rice to about 130g (4.59oz), letting it absorb water for 30 minutes with 180ml (6.09us fl oz) of water, and then cooking it in the microwave. Then ...

Oh!

Plump and chewy!

I cooked more plumply than before! It's chewy and delicious, if not as much as cooking in a rice cooker. There is almost no hard core left. If you think that you cooked a mess tin at the first camp, you will be satisfied enough!

What's more, there were few spills during the microwave. Therefore, the editorial department recommends reducing the amount of rice to about 130g (4.59oz) instead of 150g (5.29oz).

Should I buy a rice-cooking mug (for 1 go)?

Speaking of convenience, it is convenient, but it may be easier to cook with a rice cooker because it takes time to absorb water and steam, and you have to be careful about spills. After all, it takes about the same amount of time.

However, I think it will be useful in an environment without a rice cooker. Even when you don't want to cook with a rice cooker just for yourself, such as when you live alone or when you have no family. I can eat it as it is from the mug, so I'm grateful to me for being sloppy.

It's 300 yen, so if you think you can use it, you can buy it. There is no doubt that it can be cooked properly! Please consider it.
