Asvel: One-Touch Rice Dispenser

There's bug in our rice!


It gave me goosebumps when I saw moving tiny creatures in a sack of rice. These rice bugs are also called weevils. Weevils or rice bugs infest or feed INSIDE the food, leaving powdery rice in the container. Weevils also love other grains, nuts, flour and pasta. Although I read that weevils are not harmful but who wants to eat those tiny creatures!

How to Store Rice to Prevent Bugs

When it comes to health, there's no shortcut and "maybe". When in doubt, I throw them away. I am also meticulous on items used to prepare food especially on knives, chopping boards, and cooking spoons.

Half sack of rice is no joke, it would costs at least Php 750 right? I learned my lesson the hard way so I decided I should get a rice dispenser. From time to time, I would do the traditional cleaning and sifting of rice using a bilao. The same process when dealing with stones or rocks in rice.

How to Properly Store Rice

Storing Rice with Asvel Rice Dispenser

Rice, flour and other grains should be kept in a clean, sealed, air-tight dry container. Sealed enough that it won't get moisture from outside which bugs and other insects love to live in. Unfortunately, the rice storage I had before is not the best food storage. It's better to spend a few hundreds for the health safety of your family.

Now, I'm using a slim and compact Asvel Rice Dispenser in white. It can store up to 12 kilograms of rice. It's a Japan-made product now available in the country. Asvel is endorsed by actress, celebrity mom, Ms. Kris Aquino.
