I'm very picky about my rice. So, I always wash my rice before cooking it and I always cook my rice in a rice cooker. The result is perfect rice every time. However, until now I've never found the right container to wash my rice in. Colanders are not suiatable because the holes in most colanders are too large so that the rice will escape with the water. With a common bowl the problem is, how do you drain off the wash water without also allowing rice to escape? I've used strainers and other approaches but, none work as well and a easily as this rice washing bowl.

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.

Surprisingly efficient; I guess I never washed my rice well before getting this bowl.

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.

Like the title says: It's perfect for washing rice. Though, if washing smaller grains or seeds (such as Quinoa), expect a minimal amount to escape through the side drain (if you use it). Not removing a star for that as the product is advertised as a rice washer and it performs that duty perfectly.

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.

I've been using an old fashioned mesh strainer to rinse my rice. The problem with this is when washing under a faucet, the water goes straight through - meaning you have to really keep adjusting the bowl so that all the rice is rinsed.

With this particular bowl, it shaves off much of that wasted time and gets the rice even cleaner. When you place the rice in the bowl and begin to rinse, the water generally will reach a consistent level above the rice - where gravity takes over and drips out the excess perfectly no matter how much water you are running through it.

I generally just shuffle the rice around with my fingers while its submerged. The friction of the submerged rice together with the constant flow of water gets the rice especially clean. The water drains right out leaving perfectly clean rice. I love this bowl!

I make rice for sushi/onigiri about 3 times a week. One of the secrets to perfect rice is washing it until the water runs clear. Sometimes that can be very frustrating, especially if you don't have a tool to aid. I used to use a mesh strainer, but it was almost impossible to swish around the rice, which I think is key if you want to get the rice really clean. This makes washing it so much easier. Every grain gets wet, and swishing the rice around definitely makes the process go faster. With my mesh strainer it took about 5 minutes, and with this, it takes from 30 seconds to a minute, depending on how much rice I need to wash.

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.

UPDATE 7/5/13:
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.
