We all just need to buy those tiny tiny glass rammekin bowls to eat out of.

And miniature spoons.

Then we'll have so much cereal... right?

I think you'll get a lot of waste from an eyedropper. When I made my lip tar lipsticks, I mixed lip tar and a tube of Burt's Bees in a microwavable pinch bowl (which I already had in my kitchen because they're so damn useful!), nuked it for a few seconds, mixed with a chopstick and then poured directly back into the Burt's Bees tube. The pinchiness of the bowl made pouring easy with almost no waste (I scraped up a little with the chopstick).

I believe its supposed to be an obol a special cereal bowl that releases the cereal slowly so it doesn’t get soggy.

u/SankThaTank · 10 pointsr/EatCheapAndHealthy

I got one of those rice washing bowls from amazon a couple years ago and it really was a game changer for me. I just put the rice in and rinse it for 30 seconds or so, drain out the excess water and dump it in a rice cooker. So easy and the rice comes out amazing every time. I could never go back to instant rice at this point

u/Mechakoopa · 8 pointsr/GifRecipes

Generally what they do is they have these small glass prep bowls that they pre-measure the ingredients in to for making these videos so they can just slap shit together quickly and still have it look good.

u/hshawn419 · 5 pointsr/Cooking

Rinse the rice first, that will help with the brown. You can buy a strainer bowl that helps with this, I'll find a link.

Try using 2/3 rice to 1 water. (More water) that should help with coming out dry.

Best of luck.

For Eldritch Horror, it's been a great pleasure to swap the sanity/stamina counters for red and blue d8s. It was also great to upgrade the d6s to 16mm dice - they roll better and feel heftier than the 12mms the game came with.

I also like these pinch bowls for miscellaneous components:

Also: foam core inserts are great for making the experience better organized and help make the set up faster!

u/MraizeGhostblood · 4 pointsr/boardgames

Not game specific, but little condiment bowls to hold any sort of components. Something like this

Using for a game like scythe is awesome, you can keep a handful of bowls on each side or corner of the table and it keeps the game organized and no one is reaching over the table. Biggest quality of life adjustment for the cheapest cost.

Storage solutions for whatever games you play the most is probably the next best thing. It can be expensive going the broken token route, but something like a Plano tacklebox thing for gloomhaven pieces will be about $10 and saves sooo much time.

Game mats are great too. I have the big one for 7th continent and it fits a lot of smaller stuff too. But you can order a custom 36 x 36 or whatever and upload your own image. It just keeps the table from getting scratched, makes it easier to slide pieces, and most importantly picking up cards is much easier.

u/caitin147 · 4 pointsr/boardgames

I use these two sizes of bowls to hold componants while playing. They make picking thigs up easy, keep everything neatly in place/sorted, and look really nice! They stack up for storage as well.

10 of each (one small set one large set) has been exactly right for every game we’ve played.... even Keyper, which has a LOT of componants (literally 8 different animeeples!)

I am tired of waiting so I'll make a budget matcha set for you:

[Rice Bowl $7.6] ( you can find this cheaper, but I'll post this for convience. while a proper chawan has a wider base that is better for whisking the matcha, this type of bowl could work. Generally chawans are $20 and up.

[Bamboo whisk$11.88] ( (+ Chashaku & spoon) you can find cheaper whisks for around $5 or more expensive ones from Japan that generally are of a better quality. Some people use milk frothers or normal cooking whisks, both can be used, but won't be as effective.

Right now we are at $19.48, the cheapest matcha at o-cha is the [Uji Organic Matcha] ( for $10.56, slightly more expensive and in my oponion a more friendly matcha is the [Uji Matcha Kiri No Mori] ( at $12.74. If this is your first time making matcha, I wouldn't recommending purchasing anything over $15 there.

Bonus accessories that are useful, but not necessary is the [Matcha Sifter for $14.56] ( and the [bamboo whisk stand] ( for $4.73.

Also if you want to practice your whisking skills I reccomend getting a powdered green tea [like Teavivre's] (

u/MacGuyver247 · 3 pointsr/Cooking

This is not a recipe suggestion as much as a tip. Get squeezy bottles for:

  • Oil, peanut or some high temp oil
  • Broth
  • Soy sauce
  • Fish sauce [edit: just saw the seafood]
  • Sesame Oil
  • Sriracha

    Also the little Soy Sauce Dishes for:

  • Ginger paste
  • Garlic
  • green onion tops
  • green onion bottoms
  • sugar
  • msg (or broth powder or ignore if you hate msg)
  • cornstarch
  • touchi
  • XO sauce [contains seafood]

    Finally, do not buy the products I mentioned through the links I supplied. Go to your local chinatown. It will have all these products and cost less.

    Other accessories: a gas burner, you can get a portable one at 10$. A wok ladle. and a spider.

    As for recipes... er... popcorn? ;)

    Stir fries are great, but once you start making your own fried rice you'll look forward to converting ALL leftovers into carby goodness.

    Enjoy and don't hesitate to ask us questions!

Here is your idea, but more efficient

u/MsCheshireCat · 2 pointsr/trees
u/Razaroozle · 2 pointsr/JUSTNOMIL

The trick to sticky rice, not sushi rice, is to wash it really well, until the water runs clear. I use a big bowl and a rice strainer since in my sink it's hard to tell when it's clear enough. Then let it soak in water for 30 minutes. After that dump the water and put it in a pot. Add about 1/2 inch more water than rice to the pot. Then turn the burner on high with a lid covering the pot. Cook on high for about 15-20 minutes. You will most likely burn it on the bottom the first few times but you'll get the hang of it and your stove/pots. Be sure to use a wooden/ soft plastic spoon to scoop the rice so it doesn't break.

Sushi rice is the same but with more steps/ingredients after the rice is done.

u/defdestroyer · 2 pointsr/BuyItForLife

As discussed in the manual for this rice cooker, you only need to wash unpolished white rice. This is because the dehusking process that removes the husk and the bran leaves behind some of both and washing removes these. Polished white rice is already washed for you, and brown, black or wild rice do not need it because their husk and bran have not been removed.

That said, I recommend this washing bowl.

Small glass bowls. Work better than silicon cupcake cups since they're transparent. Also are better for the environment than plastic containers :)

u/Phearlosophy · 2 pointsr/LifeProTips

I know it's kind of a specialized tool but they make strainers specifically for rice. They drain slow so you can see how clear the water is. The holes are small so no rice gets through. And it has a strainer/spout to pour off excess water.

You can use it as a normal colander too so it's not just sitting there for nothing.

u/ThatsWhatXiSaid · 2 pointsr/WhitePeopleTwitter

> All of that said, you can get small prep bowls and tiny dishes relatively cheap

I picked up four glass bowls similar to what they use for the smaller items for a buck at I think Dollar Tree awhile back. Not just relatively cheap but cheap cheap.

edit: They look pretty much identical to these. Incidentally they work great for board game night to organize little pieces, especially if you need to grab them frequently.

I picked up one of these "Japanese Washing Bottom Drainers" rice strainers on the cheap and it is DEFINITELY worth the coin to strain rice and quinoa. It's not metal so you won't run the risk of chipping away at the hulls of the grain if you get playful with the washing.

No affiliate link above, just good vibes for good grains :)

u/almightywhacko · 2 pointsr/wicked_edge

The walls of the mug are important, they are what keep the lather from falling out of the mug when you are whipping your brush back and forth. In general a good mug needs two things, it needs to be wide enough that you can work your brush back and forth and it needs to be deep enough that you aren't flinging lather everywhere.

If you are looking for something cheap to pour your soap into, small japanese rice/soup bowls are a pretty decent choice.

u/mplsmatt · 2 pointsr/boardgames

I ordered these small bowls and I think they work really well. I just throw them in my game bag in case we need them.

u/glitter_bitch · 2 pointsr/RedditLaqueristas

here's what i do... i find a dish that's low enough and wide enough for me to fill mostly with glitter w/o overflowing when i stick my finger in it. for reference, i usually use these little silicone mise en place dishes i got for christmas. :)

then i dip my basecoated fingernail in glitter and instantly brush off any that's on my skin back into the dish; after waiting a few minutes for the polish to set w/ the glitter, i brush the excess from the nail back into the dish, too. a few gentle pats with the flat of my brush nixes standing pieces and also helps settle the glitter firmly. after it's dried really well, i brush it again more vigorously -- i HATE when i get glitter in my topcoat lol -- to make sure every loose piece is off. then i put a thick layer of glitter food followed by a thick layer of topcoat.

Ive gotten perfect rice every time with this. Another thing that helped out was getting a rice washing bowl super cheap and doubles as a vessel to defrost things under running water since it drains slowly.

u/torankusu · 2 pointsr/Bento

For my first bento, I made a sandwich, haha. I also filled in the gaps with baby carrots, saltine crackers, and a little bit of cream cheese to eat with the crackers.

I don't know if it's a concern to you, but rather than using disposable cupcake liners, you could go green (and save money) with silicone containers. :) I used these for my cream cheese and other little side dishes, but I also use silicone cupcake liners, which come in different shapes and colors (you could get the round ones, but there are ones of other shapes, like squares and hearts).

Your little fruit cup looks appetizing. :)

I love the silicone ones. I have a set:


I also have a set of glass dishes like these:


And some crockery ones like these that are really nice and opaque (when that is important):


You can also do those in plastic:


I'd recommend the silicone ones, but only if you can get big enough ones. Otherwise it can get frustrating not having enough. I think for the bang for the buck, the glass ones above are the best balance of cost, size, ease of use (and non-game utility), cleanup (if needed), and stackability. :) If silicone were cheaper and larger, they'd be my fave.


u/tbaileysr · 1 pointr/boardgames

Here is one more thing that can help clean up and setup. Silicone condiment cups. These are great for keeping things tidy during a game. When finished with game just pick up the cup and pour into the ziplock bag.

u/juvenescence · 1 pointr/ViteRamen

So you're saying that it should fit in one of these bowls for microwaving then, right?

u/JackaIope · 1 pointr/Cooking

I use the IP to make short-grain rice and I did it fine on the first try. Note that if you must eat very fresh tasting rice it still won't be good enough but if you can deal with Asian restaurant rice (the ones that are at last halfway genuine anyway) it should be comparable.

The problem is that i'm using specialized equipment so honestly I don't know how the results would be otherwise.

Scoop 2 cups of rice with the rice cup (if you don't know what this is use a teacup I guess...) and then place it in a bowl to wash it. Run water from the tap on your rice and mix it up with your hands for five to ten seconds, drain the water, then repeat this washing process three to five times.

If we were in my kitchen at this point we would move the rice to the additional stainless pot I linked above but if you don't have one either use any stainless steel bowl large enough to contain the rice or an oven-safe glass bowl. Place 2 cups of purified water specifically from the same cup you used to scoop the rice.

Then after covering that bowl with a lid safe for the IP or with aluminum foil, place the minimum amount of water inside the main pot, a trivet inside of the same pot (if using items not designed for the IP bring the trivet that came with the appliance) and then put the pot/bowl that contains the rice inside of the main stainless pot that comes with every Instant Pot.

This is the Pot-in-Pot method which I use for most situations I use the IP. Essentially because the water that is necessary for the pot to come to pressure is separate from the water used for the rice they will not interfere with each other, the rice won't absorb the water meant to be for keeping the pot under pressure nor will you have to add more water than necessary in order to retain enough of it to keep the IP functioning properly.

Close the IP and then use the rice setting for 12 minutes (assuming quantities are the same, I unfortunately don't know what to tell you for larger or smaller ones) and after it's done let it natural release for at least 10 minutes before releasing the rest of the pressure. This is important because if you do it too soon the rice won't have absorbed enough of the water. Once you take the bowl out it should be ready to serve and can be refrigerated and reheated without losing too much quality.

I think the IP has some kind of automatic sensor for how long it's supposed to cook your rice but honestly I have no clue as to when it wants to or doesn't nor do I know how it even guesses. I only know the necessary steps for making how much rice I personally eat in one day unfortunately as a result.

u/Cairnwyn · 1 pointr/Cooking

These are my favorite bowls for small prep stuff. I also have a pile of ramekins I use for anything and everything.

I put my SSS in these little rubber bowls then just put my whole ear in it. I got mine at Publix but you can probably find them anywhere. They do a better job at suctioning to my ear than dixie cups!

u/thixotrofic · 1 pointr/anime

Like, I would write one paragraph and then move to another paragraph without reading what I had already written. And I think I got distracted a few times too.

Anyways, lul, yes, you do need water. It really makes it foolproof though. You get a measuring cup, and then there is a ruler on the inside of the cooking container which shows exactly how much water you need to add for X cups of uncooked rice of various types. You are expected to wash the rice thoroughly too. I use this.

I haven't had mine for long, but I wouldn't be surprised given its relative simplicity and apparent high build quality for it to last a decade. I imagine this brand is as well-known as it is because it is extremely reliable.

  1. Yes.

  2. Yes. (I mean, you still need to explain the rules to them and they need to create a character, but the latter is quick and the former is no more difficult than explaining any other game.)

  3. No. People love to over-complicate this, but all you need for effectively storing Gloomhaven for rapid set-up and tear down are plastic baggies and some envelopes. (I'm going to break this down specifically, but it really just boils down to the common sense of "put each component type in its own baggie so that you don't have to sort them out every time you want to play".)

  • Character boxes, miniatures, monster cards, monster sleeves, and all active cards fit into the slots provided in the insert.
  • Take all cards not currently being used and place them in a large baggie. (I also drop in a notecard with the label "SUPPLY" so that I can quickly identify what that baggie is for.)
  • As you play the game, certain cards will be removed from the game. Place these in a new baggie. (Which I label "DEAD COMPONENTS" with a notecard.)
  • Use one baggie each for status tokens, hit points, summoning tokens, money tokens, scenario aid tokens, the plastic stands, and tokens for the elemental infusion board.
  • Place each monster type in a small baggie. Then place all the monster baggies into a large, gallon-size baggie.
  • Place all unlockables in one 8.5 x 11 envelope (including Town Records Book, stickers, sealed envelopes). (I also printed out a copy of p. 49 of the rulebook -- which summarizes the conditions for the unlockables -- and glued it onto the front of the envelope for easy reference and tracking. But that's optional.)
  • Place all the character sheets for the current party in another 8.5 x 11 envelope. To keep things even cleaner, you can create sub-envelopes for each character.

    The baggies all go into the box insert. The map tiles go on top of that. The board goes on top of those. The envelopes and rulebooks go on top of that.

    To keep things from getting chaotic during play, I recommend using small cups for each token type. Plastic soy sauce dishes are great for this, and super cheap. (I use them for virtually every game I play, so this isn't a Gloomhaven-specific expense.) When the game is over, you can just pour each dish back into a baggie.

    Takes me 5-10 minutes to tear the game down. Takes me 15-20 minutes to set the game up.

I would want something with equivalent dimensions to this except I'd want it to be ribbed so that the "spines" go from the bottom to the top, not around the bowl. Ideally, the ribbing would be such that it's ribbed on the inside and out (should make it easier right?) for additional grip as well as a handle. if you could choose a glaze for the outside that was slightly gritty so that it'd grip better, that'd be awesome.
