If you love crispy rice, then say hello to the best way to reheat leftover fried rice! While you usually cook the rice over direct flame to create the crispy scorched layer on the bottom of the pot, uses the waffle maker to easily make crispy rice with a fun presentation. It works even better when the rice is cold, so it makes reheating leftovers just as easy as using the microwave, but with the benefit of getting crispy.
