This Company is bringing the tech to the kitchen

Xiaomi is well known for pushing boundaries when it comes to product design and development strategies, and now, the company has begun looking beyond the smartphone, air purifier and power bank market, and its first product in a new segment is the Xiaomi Mi Induction Heating Pressure Rice Cooker.

Yes, Xiaomi is now making inroads into your kitchen, and as most of Xiaomi’s products have proved to be, this one looks like a winner too!

Now, we all know how serious rice aficionados are when it comes to their rice and bringing precise pressure control into the picture will help in selling the idea of that perfectly cooked rice.

With this new product though, Xiaomi is all set to challenge this market, and at a price that’s less than half of what similar Japanese products are available at, the innovative company sure seems to have got this formula right already.

But how good is the Xiaomi Mi Induction Heating Pressure Rice Cooker?

Here’s how detail-oriented this one is.

First, it is a Wi-Fi enabled smart device, which means that when you buy a particular brand of rice and you’re not too sure of how it will cook, all you have to do is scan the barcode with your mobile device, send the details to the app associated to the rice cooker, and the cooker will automatically set the right process to give you rice that is beautifully cooked to perfection. The details of 200 brands are already part of the product’s lineup, with more to be added over time.

There are several recipes integrated into the cooker too, and the number of heating methods that the cooker already supports numbers a whopping 2,450.

State of the art electromagnetic heating technology combined with other minute details make sure that the rice is cooked evenly, and without sticking to the bottom of the pot. It’s all in the details they say and while it has been confirmed that a combination of 1.2 times the atmospheric pressure and 105 Degrees Celsius is what gives you the perfect rice, Xiaomi takes it a step further, fine-tuning the cooking process in a brand-specific way.

Is cooking some rice worth all this trouble? Well, Xiaomi certainly thinks so.
