Standard 1L rice cookers usually cost around Php 600, while getting something around 2.5L (good for 3-4 people), would cost double or triple. These are the lowest prices I’ve seen in the market today, so once a multi-function rice cooker appears below the usual price point, then it’s definitely an immediate add-to-cart moment! In fact, the Elayks Multi-function Rice Cooker‘s price dropped during the Shopee 5.5 Brands Festival and I was one of the lucky few who managed to grab the sulit deal before the price increased a bit to Php 929. The actual price? Php 2,999!
Before anything else, let me explain what a multi-function rice cooker does. Unlike ordinary rice cookers, this modern cookware appliance can do multiple things in just a tap of a button. The Elayks 2.5L Household Rice Cooker can help you prepare soup/broth, bake a cake, make baby porridge or yogurt, and keep your rice warm. You can also set a timer to delay it from starting.
The product comes with a couple of items inside – an extra layer with holes that you can use when steaming dumplings or other food, a free rice ladle/scooper, an electric wire for 220V, an easy-to-understand instruction guide, and an inner pot.
I’ve already tried the Elayks Multi-function Rice Cooker that I got from Shopee in cooking rice and so far, I’m loving it! Although it can be considered as a mini rice cooker, it’s spacious enough to make rice for 3-4 servings. The inner pot has a non-stick coating and it doesn’t produce crispy or burnt rice (a.k.a. tutong). It only weighs 2.3kg since it’s made out of plastic, but it doesn’t seem fragile.
Although the brand isn’t very popular, Elayks is part of Shopee Mall – a place for verified sellers on the platform. On top of that, I love its aesthetics as it looks very much like the rice cookers that I see in Asianovelas on TV. The one I got is in white color but it’s also available in brown, pink, and red to suit your #TeamPuti or #TeamKahoy aesthetic needs.
If the things I said above are enough to convince you to try this item while it’s on sale, then head over to Shopee now via this LINK! Original price is Php 2,999 but it’s currently at Php 929 as of this writing. If you visit the same link on May 9, starting 12mn, you’ll get the chance to check it out for an even lower price as part of their Flash Deals.
That’s a sulit #adulting find! Happy cooking!
