Zojirushi NP-HCC18XH Rice Cooker is used by Uncle Roger, a character played by Nigel Ng Kin-ju (Malaysian stand-up comedian). His YouTube channel has racked up close to half a billion views. This achievement is in large part due to Uncle Roger’s hilariously frank criticism of dishes such as Jamie Oliver’s egg-fried rice and Rachel Ray’s pho.

Why Uncle Roger Use Zojirushi Rice Cooker

For a machine that only cooks rice, I felt it was pretty pricey—about $200. Prior to this, I wasn’t very good at cooking rice, especially short grain.

The fact that it can keep the rice warm for 24 hours has really improved my rice game. You can fill it with rice and eat it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner the following day.

The timer features are also really helpful. This means that you can say, “I want the rice ready by 5:30,” and it will be. Additionally, it includes a premium setting that in some way improves the rice. The clock has a built-in battery, so you may disconnect it and put it in the cupboard knowing that it will always keep the right time. This in my opinion is really ingenious considering that not everyone wants this on their kitchen counter.

This Zojirushi rice cooker employs fuzzy logic. For consistently flawless rice cooking, it keeps an eye on the rice inside the rice cooker. Most other rice cookers only use a timer to cook rice, which means that on hot or humid days, your rice won’t cook completely. However, this rice cooker cooks rice to perfection.

Who is Uncle Roger

Nigel Ng is a Malaysian comedian and content creator who currently resides in the United Kingdom. Because of his performance as “Uncle Roger,” a middle-aged Asian man critiquing a video of egg fried rice, he became an internet sensation in July of 2020 all over the world. He currently has over 500 million views on his YouTube channel, and the total number of people who follow him across all of his social media channels is over 3 million.

Nigel’s sold-out show at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2019 earned him a nomination for the prestigious Best Newcomer Award. He then followed it up with another sold-out week-long run at London’s Soho Theatre in 2020. Both of these performances earned him accolades in the realm of stand-up comedy.

In 2018, he made his debut on television on Comedy Central’s Stand Up Central. Shortly after that, he appeared on Comedy Central’s Roast Battle and BBC Two’s Mock The Week, to mention a few of his other television appearances. His work has been featured in publications such as Variety, CNN, BBC, the Guardian, South China Morning Post, and SBS (Korea).

Is uncle roger a real chef?

No, Uncle Roger isn’t a real person. Ng wasn’t even the one who came up with the concept for his now-famous persona. Evelyn Mok, who is also his comedy partner, came up with the concept first and suggested that he use it for a character in a sitcom screenplay that she was writing at the time.

Who is uncle roger’s ex-wife?

In his videos, Uncle Roger would on occasion make a passing mention of his former wife Helen, who is a fictional character. Nonetheless, it would appear that Ng may have drawn some real-life inspiration for the role. In a video blog on cuisine and travel that was uploaded in April of 2020, Ng shared with his colleague YouTuber Shu the news that he had recently divorced.
