Travel series: Zojirushi Stainless Steel Food Jar SW-FBE75 (750ml) - first trial!


Jeng... jeng... jeng!

Introducing the much-discussed-about Zojirushi Stainless Steel Food Jar SW-FBE75 (750ml)! This is a heaven-sent thermal food jar for us mommies to prepare food for our little ones on the go.

I need to tell you something.....

You can actually "cook" rice porridge in this food jar.

There, I have said it.

Details about how to "cook" will be shared later, at the bottom of this post. :)

Now, let the un-boxing begins...

The specifications for those who are into technical details.

All product features at one glance.

How the lid set looks like.

See the long spoon?

The chic-looking bag, spoon sleeve, and pearl yellow jar.


My first trial with this food jar was sweet potato dessert soup during our trip to Club Med Cherating.


Ingredients:

1 medium orange sweet potato (cut into small cubes), 1 medium purple sweet potato (cut into small cubes), 1 teaspoon molasses sugar, 2 cups boiling hot water

I follow the how-to-use guide below to "cook" my sweet potato dessert soup.


How to use:

Below is a set of general guideline about how to "cook" that was provided by TheJournie, the seller whom I bought this jar from.


1. Pre-heat: Fill up the empty food jar with BOILING water, close and tighten the lid set, and set aside for at least 2 minutes.

2. Initial soaking: Discard the water used to pre-heat the food jar. Put in raw ingredients (rice/vegetables etc). Pour in BOILING water again, close and tighten the lid set. SHAKE the food jar for a while to distribute heat to the ingredients. After 5 minutes, discard the water again.

3. "Cooking": Finally, pour in BOILING water again, close and tighten the lid set, SHAKE, set aside and wait for minimum 2 hours, done. 


Very important notes:

1. Raw ingredients must be cut into small pieces.

2. Water must be BOILING, not just hot.

3. The food jar should be filled up to 80% full. Water should not exceed the water line/grid in the food jar. Please keep to about 1 cm below the water line/grid.

4. To cook porridge, soak rice grains overnight or at least an hour.

5. If you want to add raw meat, use boiling water to "soak" the meat separately (to kill germs) for 5 minutes, then drained before putting into the food jar with the rest of the ingredients.


Where to buy?

I highly recommend TheJournie. She's very helpful, prompt, and I feel safe doing transaction with her. And no, this is not a sponsored post. I bought this jar for RM169 (Chinese New Year promo price) from her online shop. :)


What's next?

I've successfully cooked vegetarian porridge with Taiwanese rice that I got from our recent 6D5N trip to Taiwan.
