Perfect kitchen appliance for busy people

What do college students, senior citizens, and busy people have in common? They get distracted when they cook! That’s why the rice cooker is the perfect cooking appliance. It just won’t burn up food. It cooks like mad and then, when it senses that it’s too hot, it shuts down to warm.That’s why I love my rice cookers so much. I don’t even want to think of how much food I would have burned if I cooked on the stove.

Just about anything you can cook in a pan, you can cook in a rice cooker. You just need to be sure to keep enough liquid in the pan to allow the rice cooker to stay in the “on” position. When the liquid boils off, rice cookers shut
themselves down to “warm.” When you are cooking meat or or other food that needs to be cooked to a specific
temperature to be sate, use a meat thermometer to be sure your food is cooked to the proper temperature.

    Some rice cookers run a bit hot and will brown the bottom layer of rice. Usually this happens when you cook a small amount of rice in a big rice cooker. You might also see brown or burned rice when you add other ingredients such as oil or sugar. It’s less of a problem with smart rice cookers that have settings like “white rice” and “brown rice.” You will have a better chance of cooking perfect rice with digital rice cookers.

    The price has come way down on digital rice cookers. Look at my rice cooker reviews for the new Aroma models that are very affordable.

    I just have to say I love your site. I’m currently living in Japan with my husband and we do not have a crockpot. Our “stove” only has two burners, which can make some meals difficult. We do, however, have a rice cooker. I am going to try using it to make some of the meals you’ve mentioned! Thanks a lot.

    I’ve been researching rice cookers for my daughter and was just wondering – if you have an 8 cup cooker (which makes 16 cups of rice?) what is the minimum amount of rice you can cook and still get good results?

    I cook 2 cups without any problems in my 8 cup cooker. If you only want to cook 1 cup, I’d get a smaller rice cooker.

    I am blind and use 3 rice cookers. Thank You, for all the info. I use a 6 cup, 8 cup, and a 10 cup. Like the recipes, but need more.
