Perfect item

I am now using the product regularly. The rice turns out wonderful. I have an electric stove with a ceramic hob. (not induction) and I wasn't sure if it would work. However, I was given great advice. The Ginpo Kikka is already a fixed part of my kitchen and I can't imagine life without it. I've ordered more items from musubi kiln. I was always well advised by the employees. Thanks
