Mitsubishi Electric will release a new steamless IH rice cooker without a steam outlet. The product adopted a charcoal inner pot, which distributes heat evenly. Features of the company’s 2 mega-seller products enhance the flavor of rice.
The new NJ-XWA10J model uses inner pots that are 99.9% charcoal, carved out manually by craftsmen. According to Mitsubishi Electric, in contrast to standard pots made of copper, aluminum and stainless steel, a charcoal pot produces heat, allowing even and thorough distribution of the heat when cooking rice. Evaporated steam from the cooking process is recovered and collected in a special tank – the same as Mitsubishi’s conventional steamless rice cookers. The company plans to manufacture 1,000 units per month.
On sale from Feb 1. The shop price of this premium rice cooker is expected be approximately 110,000 yen.© Japan Today
