I’ve been lucky enough to work with Tupperware South Africa on several food styling projects. And. Before I started working with the brand, just like many others, I would rudely lump any old plastic storage containers under the same name >> “Tupperware”. Wrong, how very, very wrong. I soon realised that Tupperware was more than just any old ice cream tub container – it stores, it cooks, it keeps drinks warm, it keeps drinks cold, you can bake in it, you can roast in it & it’s easy to clean… It also looks good on kitchen shelves, which is high up on the Tupperware care level (kitchen style is everything these days). When the “T Team” handed me a Tupperware Microwave Rice Maker (Large 3L) to try out – I grabbed it (politely, of course). I make quite a bit of rice for the family (I LOVE rice) & if this nifty device could save me some cooking time – yes please & thank you!
Before people start jumping on the microwave cooking train, let me say this… I don’t do a whole lot of microwave cooking but I do own a microwave & I do cook the odd item in it. If I am going to use the microwave, I want to know that what I use it for will result in a fantastic final product. The Microwave Rice Maker (Large 3L) is that kind of product. Any type of rice turns out well, as well as a variety of other grains. Fast, no mess & EASY to clean (we all know how I feel about cooking that is easy, yet delicious – we know).
- Rinse the rice under cold water (unless otherwise stated on the packaging).
- Use cold water in the Microwave Rice Maker (Large 3L).
- Allow rice to stand for about 5 minutes before serving.
- Fluff the rice after cooking with a non-scratch Tupperware
That’s about it, really. But watch this video – it’s pretty self-explanatory & who doesn’t love a video?
Would I purchase a Tupperware Microwave Rice Maker (Large 3L) myself? Yes, one big, fat yes. It’s available in a funky shade of purple & retails at R199 – it’s a real steal.
