Hello Kitty Banko Ware Rice Pot

Sanrio character theme small traditional rice crock

Despite their practicality and ease of use, electric rice cookers leave something to be desired if you want to try Japanese rice in all its glutinous glory – at least, according to rice purists! If you want the full rice experience, you need to cook your rice in a hagama crock with a hinoki cypress lid, the way people used to before electricity came along to ruin everything. What is missing to make this the ultimate Japan experience? A touch of the kawaii (cute), like, say, the face of Hello Kitty! Hence someone came up with the Hello Kitty Banko Ware Rice Cooker!

With a capacity of 700 ml (24 fl oz), the Hello Kitty Banko Ware Rice Pot can prepare 7-8 portions of rice, which will take care for all your weekly dinners. The crock itself is made in the Banko-yaki (Banko-ware) pottery tradition of Mie Prefecture and, being unglazed, it has a beautiful texture that makes it suitable even as a decoration item after you have finished your cooking. And of course, the image of Kitty-chan in a kimono and surrounded by cherry blossoms on the lid's handle makes it even more so!
