Giveaway: 2 Tiger Rice Cookers + 2 Stainless Steel Tumblers
My first Giveaway is finally here and it’s a big one! Since my blog mainly consists of Asian inspired recipes and healthy ones, I figured it would only make sense to giveaway (drum rolls):
Rice cookers! And not just any rice cookers, Tacook ones. If you haven’t heard of the Tacook line by Tiger, they are these nifty rice cookers that can also steam food at the same time, making dinner time healthy and effortless. The rice cooks at the bottom while your favorite combination of protein, veggies and sauce are placed on a plastic tray that sits on top. Press the Start button and voila -you are done!
These Tacook steamers also come with a cookbook filled with easy recipes to get you started as soon as you take it out of the box. I have two Tacook rice cookers and I love them both. One is a basic Tacook with straight up single rice making functions (second prize below), while the other one is a top of the line induction heating, multifunctional cooking machine. For this contest, I’ve partnered with Tiger Corporation to giveaway two of their most popular Tacook models. Cooking options are endless once you become familiar with a Tacook; I made banana bread with caramel sauce in one and a frittata in the other. Imagine what YOU could make in yours!
Tiger Giveaway Prizes:
The Grand Prize: A JAX-T18U – 10-Cup Tacook Rice Cooker
Not just for Japanese rice, this machine has so many functions it can cook just about anything! From plain to brown to multi-grain rice, it also has a steam, slow cook and porridge functions. The synchro-cooking function is used when you add veggies, tofu and/or meat to the top tray. This guarantees that your food will come out perfectly cooked at the same time as the rice is ready. The inner lid and steam cap are removable for easy cleaning.
Second Place: JBV-A18U 10-Cup tacook Rice Cooker
I own this one and love it! Basic but sturdy, this rice cooker has 3-in-1 functions: Plain, Synchro-cooking, Brown Rice, Slow Cook/Steam. I love the smooth, clean lines and snow white color. It’s also very easy to clean and to store.
Third and Fourth Place: Stainless Steel Tumbler in Pink Raspberry
Third and fourth place winners also get to win something pretty awesome! I have three of these stainless steel tumblers at home and pretty much carry them with me wherever I go. Made of glass vacuum bottles and stainless steel mean that your beverage will stay hot or cold for up to EIGHT hours!! These tumblers are also light, compact and have a convenient one-push open lid.
Please Note: Tiger Corporation will be in charge of shipping these giveaway items, it is up to them to mail the prizes to the winners.

Thank you Dani 🙂
I’ve only started delving into the Japanese cuisine the past few months and my favourite dish so far is gyūdon since it has miraculously turned out perfect every time I tried making it! The few times I tried making sushi the maki rolls turned out pretty good but I will forever be in love with nigiri even though I lack a lot of skills (hoping my enrollment in a culinary school starting this october will help me learn how to fillet fish properly).
Then you can teach me too haha!
My favorite Japanese food is a tricky one! I’m also half Japanese (and half Polish American), so Japanese food is my comfort food. Whenever I go back to Japan for the winter time, though, inevitably I crave sukiyaki at home, with amazing cuts of Japanese beef, fresh juicy vegetables like mizuna, scallion, hakusai cabbage, shiitake, burdock root…and on and on! So good. 🙂
Yummm! I crave nabe in the winter but I would definitely sit down for a delicious pot of sukiyaki as well!
My favorite Japanese food is shabu shabu! I would love any of those rice cookers as I am trying to teach my children how to eat food from different cultures!
My favorite Japanese food are plum rice balls.
My fave Japanese food is tempura. Not the healthiest but a wonderful occasional treat!
Those look amazing! Thanks for the opportunity to participate!
I would love to have one of these rice cookers. They are a great invention and keep the rice so moist and warm. I used to have an old one, but nothing so nice as this! Great for your healthy Asian recipes.
