Japan Invents In-Car Rice Cooker, So Folks Can Finally Eat a Proper Meal On The Go


The hardest part of being a commuter is always being hungry. Sure you could drop by the drive-thru again, but wouldn’t you rather have a nice, hot, home-cooked meal?

The Takeru-kun is a new in-car rice cooker capable of making two bowls of rice for white grain-lovers on the go. Designed by Japan Professional Network, the TK plugs into any 12-volt electrical car socket and is fitted with special insulation that not only lets the rice cook in just 25 minutes and but also keeps it warmer longer, according to Rocket News.

‘Course, the instructions say not to use the Takeru while the car is in motion, so you’ll probably wanna hang onto those chips for long drives up to Yosemite. But that hour you spend totally not moving on your way into work? Go ahead and rice it up*. Just watch out for the steam.
