Why do I use a rice cooker instead of a pot on the stove?
Using a rice cooker is simple, cheap, and convenient. A rice cooker is an electric potthat is designed to
boil water fast
automatically turn down the heat
when therice is cooked to avoid burning the rice. It has two settings: 1) cook like mad, and 2)keep food warm forever. Because rice cookers are designed to never burn rice, Idiscovered a rice cooker
never burns anything
!The best part is that they are
safe for unattended cooking
. If the phone rings, I feelsafe just walking away from my cooking for a minute. I know that
the rice cookerwill not burn the food or start a fire
automatically and instantlyreduces the heat
before the food burns and then holds the food at a nice warm 140degrees until I come back and switch it back to cook.
Like many great discoveries, mine was almost an accident motivated by aproblem.
I discovered a simple, safe way to cook that is also fast, cheap, convenient, anddelicious. Rice cookers are cheap. You can buy them almost anywhere.A rice cooker turns itself from "cook" to "warm" when the liquid in the pot has beenabsorbed. Food will not catch on fire if I forget to watch the stove.
The heat stays in the rice cooker. It doesn¶t heat the kitchen.
I don¶t need to dump boiling water in the sink and risk scalding myself.
For many recipes, I just dump the ingredients in the pot, turn it on and go dosomething else.
ost recipes cook quickly - in a half hour or less.
egetables stay crunchy and healthful.
The rice cooker is almost as fast as the microwave and safer because the foodis always cooked all the way through, with no raw or cold spots.
I¶m so happy with my rice cooker ideas that I want to share them with you! Rice cooker cookingis the ideal way to cook simple, delicious meals in an ever-busy world. Rice cookers provide asafe way for both new and experienced cooks to cook without creating a huge mess and without burning food.
