We generally associate Sanyo with HD camcorders, but Japan is actually going wild for the company’s kitchen appliances instead. The Sanyo GOPAN looks like a regular bread maker, but it actually bakes rice bread from grains of rice rather than pre-milled rice flour.

GOPAN is the world’s first home cooker that makes bread from rice grain. It should also appeal to those on a gluten-free diet.

Because of the limited availability of rice flour and consequently its high price, rice-flour bread baking hasn’t caught on with consumers in Japan. Sanyo therefore set out to develop a system to make rice bread from home-milled rice flour.

By taking a hint from the conventional rice-flour bread baking process in which rice flour is mixed with water, Sanyo has invented an out-of-the-box rice milling method which mills rice grain into rice paste after softening it in water. Measured amounts of washed rice, water, salt, sugar and shortening are placed in the GOPAN’s bread pan, while wheat gluten and dry yeast are placed in the automatic ingredient dispenser on the upper side of the unit’s body. After the automatic process of milling, kneading, rising, and baking, a rice bread is produced.

For people that are allergic to wheat gluten the GOPAN comes with a wheat-free setting. For this process all the ingredients are placed in the bread pan with powdered rice (joshinko) taking the place of the wheat gluten.

Using ingredients like brown rice and minor grains also allows the GOPAN to produce a variety of breads and, like other conventional bread makers it can be used to make wheat bread, bread dough, and wild yeast bread. The device also includes a “Gluten and nut automated putting feature” for the creation of gourmet breads, while a “Jam Course” feature tops the bread with a topping made from fruits. Additionally there is a “Noodle Dough course” for the making noodles and pasta and a “Rice cake course” for making rice cakes.
