If you are serious about your Japanese noodles, consider acquiring the ultimate gadget designed to cook them perfectly: the Electrolux Udon Noodle Box.
This self-contained heating and cooling noodle box was inspired by the art of origami and designed by Andrew van der Merwe, a designer based in Melbourne. But don't be deceived by its futuristic look, the Elextrolux Udon Noodle Box is actually quite user friendly.
The sleek designs features a flexible silicon lid, a pointed handle that doubles as chopsticks and has a germicidal ultra-violet light. An eco-friendly bonus? The noodle box is made from a vegetable oil-based plastic. This way you can feel even better about what you are eating.
But if the thought of making noodles is too much trouble, you can always get a robot to do it for you.
