Rice in a Bottle

Have you ever looked at something and thought, “That’s SO Japanese!”

That’s what I said to myself when I saw this:

I know what you’re thinking, “But this isn’t a crazy pizza or even a misspelled sentence…!” Yep, those are super Japanesey things. Though what I’m talking about are those curiously eco-conscious things Japanese people do, like separating trash down to the last soup label or air-drying laundry along the balcony.

At the cost of 680 yen ($7.23), you can use this spout to conveniently store this week’s dinner. Generally speaking, uncooked rice comes in a big, bulky bag that has nowhere to go other than under your sink where scary bugs and germs lurk.

But with this handy dandy spout you can transfer rice into empty 2-liter PET bottles and store them in the fridge. Simply use the cap to measure it out when it’s time to cook.

I’ve never seen a Japanese household without at least two beverage bottles in the fridge, and when it comes to throwing them out, they take up a lot of space in the bag. Storing a bottle of rice in the fridge not only saves a bottle from an uncertain fate it guarantees you’re not going to have bugs in your fried rice. Now who’d want that? Yikes! =X
