Well, you know how all heroes do not wear capes? It just might be the case that this Rapid Ramen Cooker is the hero that came in the form of microwavable bowls to put an end to all of our ramen problems.
The Birth of Rapid Ramen Cooker
Chris Johnson brought forth his amazing invention on Shark Tank, claiming that it is the world’s fastest and easiest way to cook ramen noodles. He created a ramen cooker that cooks ramen in half the time in a microwave with less water.
During a typical lunch break in October of 2010, Chris Johnson’s craving for a bowl of ramen is what initiated his journey of Rapid Brands. He got himself a packet of instant ramen, placed it in a bowl, poured in the advised amount of water and threw it in the microwave. The result had been beyond disappointing. All he could get was a bowl of flavorless soggy noodles. This disillusionment with instant ramen made him wonder if it was possible to get some scrumptious bowl of properly cooked and flavorful ramen at a microwave speed. He set out on his journey to understand the mechanism of cooking the perfect ramen.
His impeccable invention had been revealed to the world through Shark Tank. However, he had to face a fair share of hesitation before the judges could be convinced to invest on this invention. But it was not enough to make him quit on his mission to create the world’s fastest ramen cooker. Receiving these initial doubts led Johnson to literally walk into a local Walmart and convince the manager to sell his products at the store- the very first step to his success. He sold out!
The judges were impressed and Mark Cuban got persuaded to invest in it. Although the deals had never been finalized, just two weeks after the show, the rapid ramen cooker was selling a whopping 25 per minute. By the year 2014, this became a nationwide sensation with more cookers on the shelves to cook macaroni, rice, brownies, oatmeal, etc. It is 2022 and the company is still ruling the ramen industry with an annual revenue of $5 million dollars and lifetime sales of $55 million dollars.
How can a Rapid Ramen Cooker cook so fast
It is not some voodoo that the rapid ramen cooker cooks perfect ramen every time within minutes. Chris Johnson discovered the science required to serve a steaming bowl of tasty ramen keeping the consistency of the ramen noodles intact.
Through his research, he found that in a regular bowl of ramen, there is way too much space and water for the microwave to be able to heat it up. This caused the water to get heated before the ramen could actually get cooked, resulting in some pasty ramen noodles. He set out to create such a microwave cooker bowl that will have the dimensions to prevent this shortcoming. This resulted in him coming up with the rapid ramen cooker that worked like magic. It was cooking ramen noodles faster and it did not leave the ramen noodles all soggy and pasty.
Therefore, a rapid ramen cooker simply uses its dimension to disseminate heat equally to all the parts of the cooker resulting in the best ramen cooked within just a couple of minutes.
