List of the Pros of a Rice Cooker

1. It cooks the rice for you automatically.
You’re not required to fuss over the rice cooker like you would in a saucepan or other cooking vessel. Just measure the rice and liquid, set the lid, and turn the machine on. The cooker will then shut off its cook mode when the cycle is complete.

2. It keeps your rice warm.
Once the cooker finishes its cooking cycle, most models offer a warming feature. That allows you to keep the rice warm without overcooking it while you finish up the rest of your meal.

3. It is easy to clean.
Although there are some exceptions, many countertop cookers offer components that are safe to put in the dishwasher.

Advantages of Using a Rice Cooker

rice cookerWe’re back to school. Back to tight schedules and soccer practices; back to squeezing in a healthy dinner in the few remaining daylight hours. Every year about this time, I start sifting through Pinterest for quick family meals. But, I’ve got a secret to make back to school a little easier. Let’s talk about one of my favorite kitchen small appliances for your home or your restaurant: the rice cooker.

A rice cooker is made to simplify cooking…well, rice. Using a rice cooker to prepare rice for your family is as simple as adding rice along with the appropriate amount of water and pressing a button to turn on the cooker. Okay, on to my secret. Another benefit of using a cooker is that it can be used for more than just cooking Federal Hospitality Equipment. Scouts honor. Your cooker has hidden talents. With a little experimentation, you can cook breakfast, poach fruit, or even make risotto with less hassle than cooking it on a stovetop.

1. Make a hot breakfast.

To make oatmeal or other hot cereals, add a little less milk or water than you would for stovetop cooking (and some chopped nuts and dried fruit if you want). The “keep warm” function will keep food from getting cold and gooey―perfect for days when everyone gets up at a different time.

2. Steam vegetables.

If your machine comes with a steamer rack, use it to cook cut vegetables, tofu, potatoes, or even shrimp, fish fillets, or chicken breasts. Take out and serve as an easy, one-pot meal.

3. Make risotto without stirring.

Sauté onions in butter in an open rice cooker, then add 1 part Arborio rice and 4 parts liquid (such as broth and wine). Cook for about 25 minutes in an on/off cooker or use the “slow” or “porridge” cycle if your machine has one. Mix in grated cheese and herbs at the end.

4. Slow-cook soups, beans, or stews.

Give your rice cooker enough liquid and time and it will create long-simmered dishes without scorching or boiling over (the way slow cookers sometimes can). Try split-pea soup with ham, or put beef (that’s been browned on the stove) and vegetables in the cooker with tomatoes, wine, and herbs for a hearty dinner.

5. Poach fruit.

A rice cooker works for healthy desserts of fruit simmered in juice, wine, or maple syrup. Or make applesauce and other fruit sauces.
