Discipline: Product

This product is a rice cooker and a MWO that applies microwave technology. WAN is inspired by traditional Eastern ceramics. It looks like an ordinary product, but we redefined its extraordinary style and material texture which it was designed with. Its pressure cooker cavity is made of special ceramic material, enabling it to provide an ideal taste of rice and to keep it warm. Moreover, its multi-functional features (MWO and rice cooker) can save space for modern family kitchens at the same time.
