Instant ramen lovers no longer have to share, thanks to one Japanese company’s invention of a personal ramen hot pot cooker, which is also conveniently designed in the shape of a cube to account for square-shaped dried ramen noodles.

Japanese gadget company Thanko is behind the latest invention, which they have named My Ramen Pot or “Ore no Ramen Nabe.” According to Thanko, “the size design allows you to put all kinds of bag noodles without breaking them, and we are particular about heat and heat retention.”

To use the single serving cooker, pour water into the pot before turning it on. Wait six minutes for the water to boil, then cook noodles according to the package instructions. Toppings may be added to complement the noodles and broth.  

Another appeal of the design is being able to eat straight from the pot, leaving no extra dishes to be washed. One of its features allows users to adjust the heat intensity for the ramen to stay warm while eating. 

If there is any leftover ramen broth, Thanko suggests adding plain rice to soak up the remaining broth or to make oatmeal cheese risotto, tomato pot-au-feu and Mapo tofu-style rice.

The clean-up is also designed to be convenient, as the top and inner sections of the hot pot can be removed easily to be washed. 

My Ramen Pot can be purchased at 7,980 yen (approximately $64) on Thanko’s online store.
