Every family has a holiday tradition that they try to keep going every year, whether it's during Christmas or New Year's Eve. What's yours? Here are some examples of household traditions from our family at Zojirushi.
“We personally love using our Gourmet d’Expert Electric Skillet during the cooler, holiday season simply because it brings close family and friends together in a cozy, homely environment. With 2 different sized pans, our options seem unlimited, though our favorite has been Japanese style hot pots! Not only easy to make, but I feel it shares a bit of culture too.”
Sharon, Administration
“During the winter, I have two Zojirushi best friends: 1) the Thermal Vacuum Cooking Pot, who helps me cook and store massive amounts of hearty chili and savory chicken curry 2) my Gourmet d’Expert Electric Skillet who is the center of attention for sukiyaki and nabe parties. Both items provides a wealth of comfort and joy which is what this holiday season is all about!”
Jamie, Division 2 Sales Department
“My Fresh Brew Coffee Maker—I use it daily in the morning. Even if I make large amounts of coffee, the coffee won't burn even if we don't drink it ASAP. It's fast and perfect for my house. It is convenient when we have holiday dinners because we can brew coffee and bring the carafe itself to the dinner table. Since the carafe is vacuum insulated, it keeps the coffee hot for hours!”
Randy, Technical Support
“What other holiday activity brings a group of people closer together than cooking Shabu Shabu in a Gourmet D’ Expert? We have been using ours for many years now and both the Shabu Shabu and our family and friends who have gathered around it over the years will always be one of life’s simplest pleasures.”
Peter, Administration
"I take my Zojirushi Tuff Sports (I have two) to my son's Winter League baseball games. They are at 8:00-10:00 at night and it is about 45-50 degrees out there! Brrr.... The kids love having hot chocolate to warm their hands and their insides between innings. It's not bad for the parents either!"
Vance, Technical Support
“Holiday season means lots of eating and sharing time with family and friends. With my family, we usually gather ourselves around nabe (Japanese hot pot), cooked in the Zojirushi Electric Skillet. Mmm!! It’s nice since there is a temperature control. With my friends, we have a holiday potluck dinner, then the fun and exciting Secret Santa gift exchange!”
