I heart my rice cooker

My latest kitchen gadget is my rice cooker.

In the past few months I’ve taken to making a boat load of grains on Sunday night for the week, making lunch preparation a snap. I take 1/2 cup of rice, toss in a multitude of veggies (I’m into steamed broccoli, lemon broccoli, steamed carrots, and collard greens), toss in some beans, drizzle with pesto or hummus and I’ve got an amazeballs lunch.

Anyway, back to the rice cooker…this baby makes all types of rice perfectly. I tried short grain rose brown rice. I threw in 2 cups, the right amount of water, pressed the button and forgot about it. Fifty minutes later…perfect rice! No more watching the pot!

This gizmo also cooks dry beans to perfection (I made adzuki beans last night) and also steams vegetables. It also does the laundry and tells you “I love you.” OK, obviously that’s not true, but it still rocks.

Lucky for me I got my version on sale for $60 at Bloomingdales…it’s a smaller 5 cup version, but I can’t ever picture myself making that much rice in one sitting.

And, I am very happy that I can tell Matt “I told you so!” as he thought I would NEVER use it. I TOLD YOU SO!

Perhaps a rice cooker is just what you need!
