New-Fangled Hot Lunch: The Zojirushi "Thermos"

January 02 2008 - 10:51 PM

Ricecooker I’ve been scoping rice cookers, already owning a kick-ass Sanyo, and know that Zojirushi makes some killer cookers. But I found something really cool that tests my new year’s “spending freeze” resolve.

It’s a crazy super insulated thermos. But it has multiple containers and apparantly holds things at temperature for a seriously long time. You can stack foods to keep colder items toboggan gonflable cold, etc. Unlike a rice cooker, its not a real necessity and granted you still need to do the cooking but it stays with you all day. If you are microwave-less here’s a great option for what seems to be a copious amount of luncheon.

I’m still trying to make heads and tails out of fuzzy rice cookers. I’ve had great luck hitting “cancel” and “cook” and everything comes out perfect. Considering all the buttons are in Japanese that’s no mean feat.

Buy it on amazon after the jump…
