Rice cooker on steroids: that’s what comes to mind when considering the multifaceted uses for Tim3 Machin3. The 900 watt heating element is 250 watts more than the average rice cooker, so it can cook faster. The inner pot is manufactured thicker than that average pot, and coated with a long-lasting non-stick spray so rice doesn’t stick to the bottom or burn. A detachable cord means easier storage, but may get lost amongst loads of other kitchen accessories. Besides rice, Tim3 Machin3 also cooks quinoa, oatmeal, yogurt, and can even multitask by cooking rice and steaming veggies and fish at the same time.
Perhaps the best feature of this product is that it can be programmed to cook oatmeal and other foods the night before so that they’re instantly ready to eat in the morning. This campaign seeks to raise $10,000 by December 10, 2014. Early bird backers get one product for $58, with an expected delivery of December 2014.
