I will never be as cool as any (or certainly all) of my daughters, but I do now have a cool rice cooker as at least some of them do.
I resisted getting another one job appliance to take up space in the already crowded kitchen. I have seen the light. What triggered the change was the problem of rice on Sunday, especially brown rice. If I cooked it, say with pot roast, while at church, there was a likelihood of mushy rice. But it takes so long to cook, that we didn’t want to start if after church. So, I decided to get a delay start rice cooker. Now the rice is nice.
And it is not a one job appliance. We haven’t had it long, so we haven’t done much with the steamer, but it does a great job on broccoli.
