So you'd think living in a country where everyone eats rice every day, at least 1-3x daily, it would be inexpensive. NOT! A 2kg bag is $8, 5kg $17, and 10kg cost me $29 (on sale from $38!). Don't ask me why I just bought a $28 bag of rice. I must be turning Korean! ...and there are like 20 different kinds to choose from too! But I must say, no matter how I cook it, it turns out perfect every time! The average price of a rice cooker here is $200. They range from cheap-o-s at $60 to massively big ones for $400-500.
