    Fantastic. I don’t know how I was living without this guy. Actually I do know — I wasn’t eating rice. I just made my first cup of rice (outstanding by the way) and I almost want to make another one just as an excuse to use it again. But I’m actually full so I won’t.

    The coolest bonus is the mini-rice scooper. It resembles an elongated spoon which could be used as a utensil to eat directly out of the pot if the user was so inclined. I would never do that though, nope. That is too barbaric for me. But doing so would minimize the number of dishes to wash afterwards if this is a big concern.

    As a matter of fact, the rice pot is so small that clean-up is a cinch.

    Now, I noticed from other reviews that people wanted a carrying-handle. I can see how this would be useful from a utilitarian standpoint but from a minimalistic perspective it would just add bulk to the product. Plus, I don’t think Takeru-kun would be as cute with a handle as it would take away from his perfectly round head.

    The product comes with a carrying bag so I figure it’s a good compromise. Maybe people wanted a carrying handle on the cooker itself so they could carry it around in public and show it off. Yeah, come to think of it, the carrying bag should have been see-through.

    My only regret is that I should have bought two more of these dudes.

    With Takeru-kun the possibilities for your two-course meals extend as far as the instant food isle. Takeru with instant miso soup, Takeru and instant ramen, Takeru with instant curry… to name a few! Just add Takeru-kun!

    Be the envy of your fellow friends, co-workers, family, and oversized rice cookers! Buy one today!

    Bought this cooker for my 2-month work assignment to Moscow, Russia.

    Used to prepare: Rice, soup, instant noodles, boiling water for tea

    Pros:
    Cooking time and quality is on-par with bigger, more expensive rice cookers in our household.
    Removable cooking shell makes cleaning a breeze
    Easy to transport due to compact size and lockable lid

    Cons:
    Runs only on 110-120V, should have made it dual voltage, like most modern electronics. Make sure to bring a transformer for 220V locations.

    This extremely small rice cooker cooks rice very well due to air-tight lid (which makes a huge difference for cooking rice). I have not tried the veg. warmer yet but I managed to cook a vegetable soup in the cooker. I have to manually turn off the switch after 20-30 min. but it can cook a soup as well. It is really ideal for traveling. I think the designer of this kind of cooker should consider a handle to carry (no handle right now) and dual voltage capacity for traveling. These two points are to be improved for the future design. Price is in a slightly steep side for the size. But it is really worthwhile and I am having a good time with it.
