Apple Has Cook, Xiaomi Has A Cooker

By -

After the water “purifier”, the Chinese brand Xiaomi has now launched a rice cooker. This “smart” cooker falls under the MIJIA line-up (Mi Ecosystem in English). The “smart” induction cooker comes with Wi-Fi connectivity. Using Mi cloud, you can control aspects of cooking using a smartphone app.

According to the press release, the container is made using precision CNC (Computer Numerical Control) machining. The cooker is made of hardened cast iron. Like most cooking utensils these days, Xiaomi’s cooker features a non-sticky coating.


The companion app can figure out the heating time and method. The app even lets you select the softness of the rice. Xioamians in India, hold your horses as the cooker is only “compatible” with 200 rice brands so far. However, those with a tiny bit of cooking sense can skip this step.

The Xiaomi MI rice cooker comes with a spoon accessory. The 3-litre capacity rice cooker is priced at 999 yuan (approx Rs 10,200). It will hit the Chinese market on 6th of April.
