GOPAN is the world's first rice bread cooker by Sanyo, that can easily bake "rice bread" from rice grains. It was released on 11/11/2010.

Sanyo made it possible after four years of trial and error! As you might know, rice is the staple of Japan. By enabling rice to be eaten as a bread, Sanyo aimed to encourage people to consume more rice!

What they finally came up with was the "rice paste method". In this new method, the rice is soaked in water, and cut with a rotary blade to form a very fine paste.

It's simple to use. In the bread pan, place 220g of washed rice, 210g of water, 4g of salt, 16g of sugar, and 10g of shortening. In the automatic ingredient dispenser on the upper side of the body, place 50g of wheat gluten and 3g of dry yeast.

Then, press the start button. After 4 hours of the automatic process of milling, kneading, rising, and baking, a tasty rice bread is baked!

Instead of using special flour such as rice flour, I think GOPAN conveniently uses rice which is kept in most Japanese households! However, the current price is 79,000 yen!!! I will go for it when it become cheaper. haha
