Re: What else can a rice cooker do?

Is this like the slow cooker that cooks without heating up the kitchen too much?

ETA: I just read that you can reheat food in it too which is a very interesting idea since we are trying to use the microwave less or not at all here.

WOW I did not realize you could steam veggies and fish in some of them. I am totally getting a rice cooker - steamed fish with rice & veggies is one of my family's favorite meals.

I got mine at Target. It wasn't the exact rice cooker I wanted, but I had a gift card from Xmas. So free was better than the $150 I wanted to spend on a Zojirushi rice cooker.

THIS is the one that I got. In the past I have just had the glass top lid cookers. But I really like this kind better. My rice always comes out perfect.

I don't have the book yet, but I have heard awesome things about "The Ultimate Rice Cooker Cookbook". I plan to get one soon. It has a ton of recipes and things to make with your rice cooker.

Re: What else can a rice cooker do?

Can you make enough in it (say rice and fish/chicken) to feed a family? How many servings do you think it makes? : )

are you talking about my rice cooker? It feeds my family of 4 just fine. I put in 2 cups of dry rice, 4 salmon steaks, and then I fill the rest of the steam basket with veggies. We always have left over rice and veggies.

It is a 20 cup rice cooker.
