Top Customer Reviews
They knew what they were doing when they designed this wash bowl. It removed more of that cloudy starch in less time with fewer grain loss. The cooked rice seemed less sticky too.
When I cook rice I usually cook 1-4 cups of rice at a time. This bowl handles that well but, can proabaly accomidate two to three times that much rice.
In fact, when the bowl first arrived I thought it was too large. My mind changed immediately when I started using it. I like to use my hands when I wash rice and I have large hands; it turns out that the bowl is the perfect size so that I can get water, rice and my hands all into the mix and get the job done.
While you can't really see it in the picture, the bowl has draining holes at the bottom. It also has draining holes incorporated in the little drain spout. This gives this bowl a lot of flexibility.
I generally don't like single purpose tools in my kitchen, they just take up too much room and expense. Since I got the bowl I've been using it to wash, and strain all sort of things in addition to rice. It was a nice find for me and the price is also quite reasonable.
The side drain is relatively high from the bottom of the bowl so as long as you don't tip the bowl in the direction of that drain, then no quinoa will escape and the water will continue to slowly seep out of the bottom drain. Otherwise, if you want a quick wash, just fashion your hand (or a paper towel, etc.) in front of the side drain to allow water seepage and seize any escaping quinoa.
Nice bowl design. The plastic probably isn't all that expensive, but it serves its purpose. There are lots of very small holes in the bottom (1.5mm-2mm ish, small enough that no rice gets caught in them or escapes). The holes are small enough to trap the perfect amount of water (provided you have a steady stream of water coming from your faucet) for swishing. There is also a place to drain on the side with rectangular holes about 2mm wide and 2.5 inches long. Rice can sometimes get caught in these rectangular parts, so I try not to let the rice touch it, just the water.
If you aren't serious about rice, or don't make it more than twice a week, this probably isn't for you.
I am still enjoying this product every time I make rice. Recently I've using this to wash beans and barley, too. One of the things I didn't mention when I first reviewed this product is that I don't have to get my hands wet if I don't want to. The water drains at the bottom of the bowl, which means I can wash by swishing the water around with the hand holding the bowl. I also cleaned mine in the dishwasher on the top rack. The packaging and the Amazon page didn't say that this was dishwasher safe, but it came out unharmed.
Now that I got this washing bowl, it literally only takes a couple minutes to wash my rice. The best part is that there are holes to drain the water from the bottom as well as slits on the top to drain the water also in case you want to lean the rice on the side. It's great! I can just put the bowl over the faucet and wash the rice to clean out the cloudy starch as the water drains!
