Yup. Wanted a lighter jacket for summer and this popped up at a too good to be true price.

Out of curiosity, what does a rice cooker actually do compared to a steamer?

I've never used a specific electric appliance for steaming, but most rice cookers come with a steamer basket that can be used to steam veggies or what have you. The rice cooker itself has a special heat sensitive shut-off. So as long as there is water in the bowl the heat will transfer from the coil, through the bowl, and into the water. Once all the water has evaporated, the heating coil is able to increase in temperature until the switch is activated, and the cooker turns off. The point at which all the water evaporates just happens to intersect with the point at which the rice is done cooking.

Rice cookers??

Best rice is cooked in a pot on the stove.

Let me explain:

  1. You take a pot and measure in the amount of rice you want to eat
  2. Rinse and wash 3x
  3. Put the pot on stove with highest setting, keep pot covered with lid
  4. Wait till you see the rice start foaming and boiling (5-8 min depending on the pot and stove strength)
  5. Stir the rice to evenly distribute
  6. Turn stove to low setting and wait for rice to rise and cook thoroughly

The most important thing is to turn the rice once over, put the lid back on, let it sit for another 5 min. then serve. Gets all the rice fluffy.

yes, I'm aware how to cook rice. the advantage of a good rice cooker - a consistent, great tasting product (if you're using high quality rice and washing it enough), extreme convenience and, with the right one, the ability to easily and quickly cook up steel cut oatmeal

And it keeps rice warm, which you can't do in a steamer or stove. Absolute lifesaver if you work in a professional kitchen.

A rice cooker is fantastic, but nothing beats the taste of rice cooked in a stone pot
post #35563 of 46309
^ crusted rice is the best part
post #35564 of 46309
i know all the cultural connotations behind the burnt/hard rice at the bottom of a pan, but i've never really enjoyed it

Rice cooker will never have the same result that is why
