These Daiso Essentials Allow You to Cook a Full Meal Using a Microwave

These will help cut your cooking time by half.

Looks like Japan is at it again! Thanks to their high-quality innovative products, cooking is now so much easier for people who are always on the go. Following
our travel essentials article, we gathered a list of convenient items we found at Daiso that will make cooking a breeze. 

A container that allows you to cook rice using a microwave oven

Cooking rice has never been this easy. 

Cooking rice usually takes a lot of preparation. Depending on the rice cooker, the rice may also take a while to cook before it’s ready. Aside from that, those who are living alone often have to face the problem of cooking more than what one can eat, making the whole process somewhat of a hassle.

However, with this microwave cooker, you can cook a cup of rice in as fast as 17 minutes. It is the perfect cooking companion for those who are living alone and are always in a rush. You can even just prepare the rice in the morning and bring the container with you to work and cook using the office pantry. Talk about convenience! 

A microwave tray that allows you to cook multiple dishes at the same time

It’s like killing two birds with one stone!

If you’re like most people, you’ve probably stuffed the microwave with multiple dishes to save on cooking time. If so, then you might also know by now that heating food this way will only result in unevenly heated food.

Say no more, because this quick-cooking microwave tray lets you heat multiple dishes in one go! Since the tray allows you to put two plates of food inside the microwave, you won’t have to wait for your food to heat one at a time anymore. 

A microwavable container that steams vegetables

Steaming food has never been this simple.

One challenge of making salads is having to prepare steamed vegetables. After washing the vegetables, you’ll have to ready the steamer and wait for the water to boil. Some people who don’t have the time will take the more expensive option of buying pre-prepped vegetables to add to their salad.

Thankfully, Daiso gave us a vegetable steamer that will cut preparation and cooking time by half. You can steam your vegetables in just two minutes to be exact! All you have to do is add water with the vegetables in the container and pop it inside the microwave. What’s more, you can use this to steam other products like dumplings too.


A container that makes the perfect soft boiled eggs

No need to boil water to make eggs! 

Whether it’s for salads or as a ramen topping, half-boiled eggs make a wonderful addition to any meal. Using this product, you can make the perfect soft-boiled egg with just the push of a button. This is the perfect addition to all the microwavable products featured above because it allows you to prepare a well-balanced meal just for yourself.
