I recently got sent the new Tefal Advanced Spherical Rice Cooker for review, which promises to produce delicious rice with a fluffy texture, even with brown rice and multi-grains. Is it that good? Let’s give it a whirl!
Innovative spherical pot technology exclusive to Tefal
Inspired by traditional methods of cooking rice over the fire, Tefal’s innovative spherical pots are orbed at the brim and bottom to encourage even heat circulation. It swirls rice grains circularly rather than vertically, with 2D spherical heating technology that emits heat from the sides and bottom of the pot. I’ve never seen this anywhere else before so it’s pretty interesting to me.
Key features of the new Advanced Spherical Pot Rice Cooker
I decided to make an easy one-pot mushroom cabbage rice with chunks of chicken thigh. Saves me the time and one pot means lunch for the aunts and dinner for Jason are all settled!
All I did was layer the ingredients on top of the rice and multi-grains, press the ‘Brown Rice’ setting and ‘Power’ button, and wait for our meal to be ready! What’s really important to me is that the functions are idiot-proof – I really don’t have the patience to read instructions and this rice cooker is easy enough to figure out in 2 minutes. Thank you for thinking of people like us when you design your products, Tefal!
And… done! Just fluff up the rice and it’s ready to serve. And yes the chicken was cooked perfectly in the cooker too.. there’s no need to cook it separately, although it would taste better if first fried briefly with garlic before adding to the rice cooker. You know what I think I will leave out the chicken next time and add chestnuts instead.
I added multi-grains to the brown rice for even better goodness. It is available at selected Cold Storage and Fairprice supermarkets, Mustafa, selected Sheng Siong outlets and Redmart.
About the rice: The aunt, who is really anal about the texture of her rice cos she’s got a gastric problem, didn’t make any bad comments and even said lunch was yummy so I think all is good. But if I had told her it’s brown rice I’m sure she would have complained of imaginary stomach discomfort by now. I love this rice cooker and can’t wait to explore the rest of its functions. Thanks Tefal for sending it my way, just in time for our new home!
