For years cooking rice for me was a real hassle. I could never get it right. It would always be too wet and
soggy or too dry and burning the bottom of the pot. Rice is supposed to be a side dish and but the attention I
had to give it was like it was the main course.
Then my brother gave me a rice cooker as a gift one year. Now, I am
opposed to kitchen gadgets because they take up room in the kitchen and seem
to only be used once or twice a year. But this one is invaluable. With the cooker,
can dump in the rice, dump in the water and then just push one button and I am
done. Perfect rice every time!
Today I cannot live without my rice cooker. I am free to concentrate on the
rest of the meal preparation and not worry about the rice. When the cooker
signals that it is done, I find that I have to pull the plug since the “keep warm”
feature runs too hot and the rice will start sticking to the bottom of the cooker after a few minutes. So I just pull
the plug, give it a stir and leave it uncovered. It will still keep itself warm for 30 minutes while I prepare the rest
of the meal. This saves electricity too!
Aroma brand, ARC-407 is what I have at home but they all seem to work the same way. Just get any
cheap model and I’m sure it will work well.
