Rice cookers are obviously for cooking purpose. However, there is a rice cooker that provides the users with an option for registering birthdays.
Does rice cooker need this function? (Yes, I’ve registered my birthday though.)
The manual has a description on how to register birthdays. But why, how on earth is this function useful…?
It’s a nice function. The rice cooker can cheer up the user who doesn’t have anyone celebrates the birthday.
Maybe the machine will start singing “Happy birthday” song.
You might be thanking the rice cooker for celebrating your birthday (if you are single, it might be the only one that remembers your birthday…)
Or, it can give you a heads-up for a celebration.
I guess this is to remind people to cook Japanese festive red rice.
赤飯 (se-ki-han) is rice made for celebrating special occasion. The rice is mixed with adzuki beans, so that it appears red in the end.
People seem to expect different things from this rice cooker. By the way, this machine is HEALSIO KS-PX10B, produced by SHARP.
What do you think this function is for?
