Rice scoop

Jukuk 주걱

I use a special scoop to get rice out of the rice cooker or pot. You can just use a spoon, but if you make a lot of rice this scoop is easier and more convenient. In Korean it’s called a “ju guk,” and it’s not very expensive, maybe $1.

    I am amazed with it. It is a good thing for my research. Thanks. ^_^

    I love the bumpy rice scoops. We use to have a plain plastic one, and it would always have tons of rice sticking to it. Same with the bamboo. When someone told me thet bumpy scoops were anti-stick, I was dubious…but they work like a charm. You might get a grain or two, but for the most part they never have any rice sticking to them.

    Hi, Josh!
    Yes, I think it prevents rice grains from sticking to a scooping portion of a rice scoop.

    Why do some of the scoops have bumps on them? Does it help grab the rice or something like that?
