The Cadillac of Rice Cookers, Zojirushi
Believe it or not, one of the more expensive transistor components to necessitate current flow in a hybrid/EV is an IGBT or Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistor.
Don’t know what that is? They are also used in inductive cooking devices, especially newer high-end rice cookers in Asia, where power can be expensive and inductive cooking is more efficient.
So, the mass consumption of better-performing rice cookers is dropping the price of IGBTs.
Check out the video below, with a hearty hat-tip to SAE:
