Oddly enough, this does me just fine. Doesn't require unitasker taking up kitchen countertop space, doesn't require proprietary delivery system.

Now I really want a machine that does a good gyuudon. A food so good that it even has its' own song:

牛丼牛丼(gyuudon gyuudon)
美味しい牛丼 (oishii gyuudon)
牛丼牛丼 (gyuudon gyuudon)
戴きます (itadakimasu)

/dango also have their own song ,but this isn't the time or place for that
//i really need to get out of this stupid place that thinks that sushi is the only Japanese food ever and there is nothing else
///and they can't even do a good sushi

$94 to not have to cook in the morning, cool.

I go through food phases, usually rotating between  Central America / Korean and Japanese / Arabic / Indian / Eastern European (because there are small markets down the street from my house of each).  I'm feeling like it's time again for a Korean/Japanese phase.  Miso for breakfast in the winter = warm and yummy.

It's really not that hard to make miso not out of a packet.  Way cheaper, too.  You can buy paste with daishi included at my local market.  Keep tofu and scallions in the fridge, and some dried seaweed in the cupboard.  Congrats, you can make soup in less than 10 minutes.

Only problem I have is going through the entire damn thing of miso takes forever when I'm only cooking for one or two people.

I like the Kikkoman soup because it has seaweed in it but the portions are very small so it takes two to make a good sized cup of soup. The miso soup packets I bought recently make twice as much soup but it isn't nearly as good. I must check out Amazon.ca to see if they also sell miso. The prices look better than what I find in local shops.

I don't have room for a coffee machine or other kitchen clutter but I discovered you can make good coffee with my tiny Italian espresso pot by opening a pod. I don't drink a lot of coffee or tea at home but I would like to drink more as it is healthier than cola.

If I used those coffee pods, I'd have to get a second job to pay for them.  But then I'd never have the time I needed to brew enough coffee to drink 8oz at a time.

This is a single serving of coffee:

Holy carp! It's $9.95 for three pockets on amazon.ca, but $8.25 for nine pockets on amazon.com.

That's one heck of a "Canadian Premium". And some of the other products are at ridiculous software set prices.

I take it Canadians have not caught on to miso yet.

If not, start a company that makes them, and take everyone else's money!

Won't get an argument from me - I live in the Puget Sound area, where all of that is walking distance from my house, as well. Just using the instant miso to highlight the silliness associated with this device. It's not that difficult to make miso, and consistency really isn't that much of an issue. Of course, I also find those damned K-cup machines silly, too.

Not a problem, the US already has it covered.

Keurig machines make terrible, terrible coffee.

We use these:   These instant single-serving packets of freeze-dried miso soup.

10 seconds once you have boiling water, and no need for a special purpose machine.
