Rice polishers are abrasive machines that use talc or some other very fine dust to buff the outer surface of rice kernels. In Japanese farming communities there is often a shared rice polishing machine. The first fully automated rice polishing machine is believed to have been patented by the English engineer and inventor Sampson Moore in 1861. In the 20th century, kitchen appliances for consumers were created that allowed individual cooks to polish rice in their homes.
