Automatic cup noodle maker

By SoraNews24

Finally, the hassle of making instant ramen is no more. No more having to go find a pot or kettle like some kind of Dickensian peasant, and no more dealing with the potentially harmful effects of scalding hot water on you or those you love. Thanko have addressed said problems in their latest device: The Makase-Tei.

The way it works is simple, just put the instant food into the device which can adjust to fit any sized cup, then pour water into it. Then, just set it and forget it.


Makase-Tei handles it all, from boiling the water to starting the three-minute timer. It even acts as a lid during heating which means an end to trying to keep that foil flap down with a trashy romance novel or whatever else is lying around the kitchen.


All this can be yours for only 5,980 yen. And considering time is money, the seconds saved by Makase-Tei’s precision timing and automation will make it practically pay for itself after about a decade or so of heavy use.

▼ Makase-Tei even boasts faster boiling than standard pots.

“Makase-Tei handles it all...”, does it? Didn’t state that it could stir together noodles+powdered chemical flavor pack+hot water. Thanko needs to hire some product planners with ambition, boys. Nice try.

If making a cup noodle is a hassle you really need to take a good look at your life.
