Inomata's Rice Washing Speed Bowl is a specially designed Japanese rice washing bowl with side and bottom drainers to quickly and thoroughly wash rice before cooking. A thorough cleansing in the Rice Washer can significantly reduce toxins and chemical levels incurred during the growing process. Easy to use, simply measure in desired amount of rice and hold under running tap water. Vigorously swish fingers through the water and rice. Loose starch and tiny particles will rinse away easily through the bottom drains. Larger lightweight debris, like husks, will float above the rice and exit the side drain. Continue until water is no longer cloudy. Works with all types of rice, including brown rice, jasmine rice, even black, basmati, wild, white and short grain rice, sometimes called sticky rice due to it's glue-like quality when cooked. The Rice Washing Speed Bowl also doubles as a multipurpose kitchen strainer for washing fruits and vegetables, legumes, barley and other larger grains. Made in Japan from food-grade plastic, it's BPA free and top-rack dishwasher safe.
