    My Korean Talking Rice Cooker

    Fixed some Korean BBQ short ribs this weekend and served it with some rice. Actually my rice cooker is a high-tech Korean model that cooks with induction heat under high pressure, all controlled by a computer that talks… Korean. I thought it would be fun to shoot a quick video of this high-tech talking rice cooker.

    From the title I had hoped to see a beautiful Korean girl cooking rice, but this is the second best option.

    SW thanks for posting, always enjoy your well done food videos and this indeed a cute gadget for sure. What kind of rice were you cooking. Looks a little dense and sticky. Also how long did it take to cook the white rice? I've got just about all major kitchen appliances from pressure cookers to chamber vacuum's but I never had issues cooking rice. Fun share though...
    One thing you can give and still keep...is your word.

    Looks like it takes 35 min, which seems about 15min too long. Very cool none the less. My kids would love it, they are always changing the language on the GPS for fun.

    Korean rice cookers are really pressure cookers, so the rice can cook really fast depending on the setting used and type of rice. I was using short grain sushi rice on a setting between normal and iron pot style. That takes 35 minutes. On the quick setting it only takes 15 minutes. One of the advantages of cooking rice under pressure is how well it does brown rice, which takes 50 minutes. The whole thing is all computerized, beeping and releasing pressure at different times during the cooking. The lid also shoots steam down into the rice at different times and has a self-cleaning steam function.

    And really the rice does taste better, especially brown rice.

    I guess it's time I told you. I've been sent back in time to warn you about the impending robot apocalypse, which will begin when a talking rice cooker achieves self awareness. Destroy this foul abomination before it kills us all with it's deadly bursts of steam! Every batch of rice brings us closer to anihilation!! WE MADE THE RICE COOKERS TOO SMART!!!!!

    But at least you get the pleasing song to tell you "rice is ready!". Is it twinkle twinkle little star?

    I lost a bunch of stuff (stones, clothes, gadgets, everything) in a messy breakup and this is what I miss the most.

    it is almost time for a new one. you cannot buy replacement cooker bowls for these things. what a sham!
