Rice Cookers

Postby uNicedmeMan » Mon Mar 29, 2010 2:17 pm

Anyone use one?

This one has some good reviews
and I may check it out. Cooking rice is a pain, it would be nice to have some waiting nice and hot for me when I was done with the meat/other stuff.

All the time. Makes rice a no-brainer so I can attend to other matters w/o using up burner space.

Yeah I use an old rice cooker I got from my wife's mom. Lately I've been throwing rice, soy sauce, mushrooms and whatever other veggies I have laying around into the cooker and making some nice rice dishes because I am lazy.

Thats definitely not lazy, but rather the definition of efficiency. (although not literally)

I'm half filipino so I've grown up with one all my life. Rice just doesn't taste the same out of a pan. Not too mention you just put the rice in, add the necessary water, turn it on, and a little later you have rice.
I like lemons and I like water, but lemon water is just wrong.

I believe the official name of that dish is Rice-n-shit. Good stuff.

I have a rice cooker and dig it, only thing to be aware of is that if you have a big cooker, it'll burn the bottom if you're only making a cup or so. I'm a bachelor, and have a big cooker, so know this first hand. :D

I have a Philips HD 4729 that I'm completely in love with. Steaming tray is a very useful addition. I first got it so I could cook other stuff while the rice is getting done, but it showed me that after 3 years of constantly cooking and eating rice I still couldn't make a decent bowl. It's just so infinitely much better than me at making consistent good rice.

i have a monster pot that i bought for like 20 bucks. My wife and I rolled our own sushi for a while. I prefer a bowl of sushi rice over normal white rice.

I do NOT enjoy making brown rice.....it just doesnt do anything for me...

I used to buy sushi rice until I noticed that the porridge rice we have over here is pretty much exactly the same thing (not quite as clean but I wash my rice so meh) and costs about a third. It is indeed better with most foods than regular long grain, though with chicken I prefer jasmine or basmati.

I'm joining the ranks of you rice cooker owners with this.

How big is big? I have a 10 cup / 1.8 liter cooker, and 95% of the time I only put in one cup. Never burnt any rice. If the rice was filthy the residue might burn a bit but never any rice and never if I washed the rice properly.

Rice cookers make killer Mac and Cheese also. Just throw in the noodles, cheese and milk. Not as healthy as rice, but an easy comfort dish.

You can also use them to make oatmeal!

The next question is, what is your favorite rice to make in the rice cooker?

I think I'm going to try brown jasmine first.

I want in on this. I love rice, but hate making it, so I usually resort to minute rice...
