Xiaomi’s Rice Cooker already on pre-sale via reseller


Xiaomi kind of stunned a lot of us by launching their first rice cooker. While it makes perfect poetic sense (Xiaomi literally means ‘little rice’) for a company with Xiaomi’s name to launch a rice cooker, we’ve kind of grown used to their phones a lot more.

Nonetheless, the Xiaomi Rice Cooker (sold under the MiJia sub-brand) can recognise over 200 brands of rice and cook the rice just the right way each time. The device uses an induction heater to cook the rice.

As expected, the Rice Cooker’s availability (at least for now) is limited to Xiaomi’s home country, China. However, there’s at least one way that interested parties outside of China can get their hands on one.

China based reseller GearBest is offering the Xiaomi Rice Cooker for $229.99 with free worldwide shipping. You can use coupon “xiaomiCooker” (without quotes) to get an additional $3 off. Not that it is a pre-sale listing, stocks are yet to come.

Makes me want to start cooking… kind of.

    how much Ram does this have, whats the camera quality like? can it cook the redmi note 3(who’s model alias is red rice note 3)? whats the antutu score???

    The Antutu score of this thing is gonna be key to me buying it. My current rice cooker scores a 60,000, this one needs at least 120,000 for me to consider it! Even though it doesn’t mean the rice will be cooked any faster, I just need random numbers in my life!!!

      Exactly right! Antutu score is as relevant for this device as it is for most phones.

      BTW my Samsung Wave just scored 520,000 on an arbitrary scale that I just made up. Maybe I can post my scores online and gain a frontpage or two…

        Yes! I got 75 Million with my Xbox One controller on BalcoTutu! My bottle of water only got 12000 though.

          I strongly suggest that you should throw away your bottle of water, 12,000 is a pitiful score. I can’t stand scoring anything less than 50,000 in any type of scale.

          For example last year I’ve measured my weight on my digital scale. It was 160 lbs. I was in shock! I needed months of therapy to get around the shock. Needless to say I’ve never measured my weight ever again, anything less than 50,000 doesn’t cut it for me.

          Throw away your bottle at once!

            But it’s Elephone water! I preordered it last April it just came yesterday but it was only half full and it was tinted yellow…..

              Unlike the rumours I’m not an Elephone fan. In fact I have burnt many Elephone products that scored low.

              In reality, I’m actually an Antutu fan, or to be even more precise I like big numbers. For example last week I coded a counter that would multiply by 1000 at the end of each second. After a few minutes it crashed, but before crashing the number had so many digits that it was almost heaven for me!

              The moral of the story is that you should throw away anything that scores as low as your bottle, Elephone or not!

              x1000 is a little uniform. Try running Sieve of Eratosthenes for some time and watch numbers grow. I in fact let it run on a 64 physical core server overnight and I quite enjoyed it, which probably would many consider a little weird. 😀

              Yeah, it’s probably a form of mental illness (striving to see numbers grow), but one of the awesome ones :p … happy to find a co-devotee

    • March 31, 2016

      OMG I just couldnt help laughing @balcobomber25:disqus …. LMAO!!!

      One thing I wanna know though, does it have a Fingerprint Reader? I need mine to have fingerprint security so that me wifey dont have access to the rice when I am not around.

      Also, I need an IR receiver so I can control it with my phone’s IR remote control. Dont you guys think this is lacking without these features?

      • balcobomber25
        March 31, 2016

        Yes definitely needs IR! I am always cooking my rice and saying “why can’t I turn on my tv!”.

          I hope there will be an app for mi tv (there is one for mi air purifier and mi band) where i can cook rice remotely over my TV, like this I can stay on my sofa all day and still enjoy a healthy life by eating lots rice.

    • Millet Air Purifier (Mi-Fan)
      March 31, 2016

      Yes with the right Snapdragon chip and antutu test the rice will be cooked in no time with all the heat thats gonna bulid up

        I suggest SD810. It was a champ in rice-cooking. It got 150,000 score in a rice cooking test!

    I heard it comes with a Snapdragon chip that heats up very fast so rice will be cooked fast! NFC as well, so one the rice is cooked, you can transfer it to a compatible plate!

    • March 31, 2016

      I also need the NFC on mine too brother. Maybe they will launch a later model with NFC built-in. Haha.

    They do anything for money, they just want to live off their brand.

    They’re only interested in money, and everything is about selling a brand, no matter is it’s a very expensive stupidity…
