Here's a product that seems to be a little too good for the factory manufacturing it.
Too hot to handle
TOKYO: Japanese electronics firm Sanyo yesterday said it is unable to keep up with huge demand for its new cooker that turns uncooked rice into loaves of bread, forcing it to temporarily halt sales.
The company said it will stop taking orders for its Gopan rice bread cooker on Dec 1 as the electronics maker looks to boost production capacity at its plant in China.
It aims to resume taking orders in April for what it claims to be the world’s first cooker to mill rice into powder and bake bread. AFP
