The modern family kitchen is full of Western electrical appliances. Electrical kitchen appliances are generally European in style. And although rice is the main food staple in China and Chinese people eat it almost every day, there is a lack of suitable rice cookers on the market for Chinese families. This rice cooker, called Eaves House, reflects our cultural heritage of Chinese design. It takes the eaves that are typical of Chinese houses to convey a sense of tradition and familiarity. There is a home under every eave, implying warmth and good fortune; the inverted trapezoid top covers the eaves and the base is integrated into the shape of a utensil bowl, giving the product a household feel; the button that opens the lid is a square symbolizing the house's front door.
