Re: What else can a rice cooker do?

With veggies, it depends on which kind you're cooking. On average, most will take less than 15 minutes.

Ohhh! I just found the manual for my cooker online.

Maybe this will help! http://www.esalton.com/static/manuals/FSRC100.pdf

Re: What else can a rice cooker do?

How do you do other grains? What a brilliant idea! For example, I'm always burning our morning oatmeal because I get distracted. The rice cooker would turn off automatically, though, hopefully eliminating that problem...do you just do it with the same amounts of water/grain as on the stove, I assume?

Re: What else can a rice cooker do?

I am so glad I found this post again. I forgot all about it.

I use my rice cooker all the time. I am so excited to experiment from all of your suggestions.

My only issue is my rice cooker goes from cooking to warm. Rice still burns if I forget to turn it off. It really can not stay on warm more than 5 minutes or burn....

I wonder if we can use it like a crock pot. First cook rice and add veggies to seam. Then add sauce to keep it on warm at bit....

I have the same question, do any other mommas do this?

Re: What else can a rice cooker do?

I LOVE my rice cooker.

One dinner that I make sometimes is so super easy. I put Basmati rice in the bottom, then in the steam basket I put frozen salmon steaks with sliced lemon, and frozen normandy blend veggies around the salmon. Takes 5 mins to prepare and tastes so yummy when it is done. And it only takes about 20 mins to cook.

Re: What else can a rice cooker do?

i dont think i can cook meats in mine. I have an Armora or something brand. It has the metal steaming tray on it though so I do the rice and then I do brocoli and cauliflower.

oh, gotcha. But if you ever get one with an upper steaming tray, they are the best!

Re: What else can a rice cooker do?

This is the rice cooker I bought just recently:
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/AS.../chrisficti-20

It cooks, rice and other grains, vegetables, eggs, shell-fish, fish, chicken and hot dogs. It has a 75 minute timer and has a picture of the type of food you can cook in it with a time range you need to set for that particular food. I really like it! I haven't had it too long and had to pack it last night because we're moving in 9 days! Crazy! I love steamed food and I especially love cooking 1/2 of dinner without me having to do ANYTHING and it turns out perfect everytime. You can't complain!
