In the kitchen, I try and avoid single-procedure appliances. Just imagine how awful life would be if your phone were just…a phone.
The mixer, the food processor, the pots and pans, even the radio (Bluetooth!) all can all help prepare a variety of foods.
However, the rice cooker only does one thing, it cooks rice, but it cooks rice so well, without any effort, that I find it indispensable – it has earned its place in my kitchen.
Only consider a rice cooker if you happen to enjoy rice.
