BALMUDA The Toaster

With its special steam technology and temperature control function, this toaster will ensure maximum flavor. The outside will be crisp, and the inside will be moist with wheat flavor. There are 5 modes to choose from: toast, cheese toast, French bread, croissant, and classic. Although this toaster cost much more than other standard toasters, it became a hit product because of its perfect quality. You will be able to find other well-regarded products such as kettles and microwaves in their official page.


Iris Ohyama Futon Dryer

Futon dryers has always been one of the “must have” appliances for all housewives in Japan. Futons are usually hung out under the sun for sterilization, and futon dryers were always very useful during the rainy season, hay fever season, or cold season or whenever its hard for people to hang futons outside of their rooms. Iris Ohyama’s futon dryer became a hit because of its convenience, small size and that it could be used for a variety of applications such as laundry or shoe dryers.


Iwatani Yakimaru (Electric Grills)

Yakiniku (meat cooked on grills placed in the middle of the dining tables) is a very popular home cuisine in Japan. This grill gained attention because of its smoke-free structure, and is said to be useful for outdoor leisure as well.


Personally I am currently looking into yogurt makers sold by Iris Ohyama – you can simply put a milk carton inside the machine and it will make you fresh yogurt in no time. You can also make other fermented food such as amazake (sweet fermented rice drink) and natto, so thinking it is worth trying for its price (less than 5,000 yen). Let us know if this interested you!
