I live in a country where rice is a staple in almost all of our meals. However, in many other countries, rice is just a side dish that’s prepared once every few months.
Cooking rice is like boiling water for most of us; but if you don’t have the time to figure out how to cook rice, then these Rice Packs are definitely what you need.
These convenient packs of rice that aren’t just for storing specific servings of rice (they’re conceptualized in one and two-serving packs.) The packs have holes near the top where you can pour excess water out after rinsing the rice.
You’re then supposed to fill the bag up with water again, up to the indicated line, before dumping everything into the rice cooker. That way, you’ll get perfectly-cooked rice that’s not too mushy and not too hard.
The Rice Pack was a a 2012 red dot award: design concept winning entry. It was designed by Park Kyungran, Kim Miyeon, and Gho Hyejin.
