There was a time when most families would whip out a box of Uncle Ben’s Minute Rice and five minutes later they could have rice with any meal. That trend seems to be changing in a huge way. People seem to care more about quality than convenience and Rick Cookers are the wave of the future for most kitchens.
A rice cooker is basically a kitchen appliance designed to boil or more commonly steam rice.
It consists of a heat source, a cooking bowl, and a thermostat, yeah really that’s all there is.
Fancy rice cookers may have many more sensors and other components, and may be multipurpose, but at the end of the day their main function is just to cook rice. Most also have a “keep warm” function so the rice stays fresh longer.
