Tilt Rice Cooker / rice cooker

Tilt Rice Cooker

Asians like eat rice, but different people have different taste even in one family. Ordinary rice cookers can only cook a pot of rice with the same hardness. My design solve this problem well.The hardness of rice is depend on the proportion of rice and water. The more water there is, the softer rice it will be. The axis of the Tilt Rice Cooker has a 3° tilt angle, so the bottom of the inner tank can range from horizontal to a 6° tilt angle when rotate it.When the bottom is horizon, the rice is of the same hardness. Rotate the tank, the bottom will be tilt. According to the proportion of rice and water, rice of the shallow side is softer.
