Last week, the New York Times discussed the versatility of cooking with a rice cooker. I couldn't agree more: A rice cooker has always been standard equipment in my family's kitchen.
Plus, rice has been making a comeback — so it doesn't hurt to have one for that reason, either.
I love the convenience of owning one. I simply dump the rice and water in together, hit a button, and about half an hour later my grains are ready. What are your thoughts?
