We all love rice. Correction, we all love well cooked rice, don’t we? We just love it from the aroma that it has, its feel and taste in our mouth. We love how it looks, how it smells and (for some), how it’s cooked. It just occurred to me that I just could be talking about myself and nobody else. Well, consider this your formal invite if you are a rice lover. For the few out there who are not, well, you may not really want to sit this one out. It just could be the greatest gift that you can give to someone who is nuts about rice.
While I may not really be able to tell why I love rice that much, I know for sure that it tastes amazing if well cooked, and that is why we have what we have on the menu today. I will try and refrain from speaking all about my experience with rice, but I will try and keep it down.
5 Best Electric Rice Cookers Reviews By Consumer Reports of 2020;
#1. Instant Pot IP-DUO60 7-in-1 Multi-Functional Pressure Cooker, 6Qt/1000W
Have you ever had a whole kitchen in just one appliance? Well, if you never have, then this is your chance. The instant pot acts as almost every cooker. You can use it for rice, as a pressure cooker, as a steamer, as a porridge maker and warmer as well.
If this is not the appliance that revolutionizes the kitchen, then I have no idea what is. It has a delay timer that lets you keep food from cooking only till when you want it to start cooking. It also has the ability to maintain the temperature you wish it to maintain your food until you start serving the food.
#2. Aroma 8-Cup (Cooked) (4-Cup UNCOOKED) Digital Rice Cooker / Food Steamer
Just like its counterpart, the Aroma 8-cup cooker is an amazing chef. Do you want healthy meals? Do you want well seamed greens? Are you looking for the person who cooks you the perfect rice? Rice that you just taste and it feels like taking a piece of heaven along with you? Well, look no further, because it has found you.
The Aroma 8-cup cooker is a fast and convenient way of cooking your rice. It totally eliminates the need to babysit while cooking. There is no need to mix/stir the rice. It keeps your rice warm till you are ready to serve.
#3. Gourmia GP600 Smartpot 8-in-1 Programmable MultiFunction Pressure Cooker Steamer Slow Cooker Cooking Pot
Most rice cookers double up as pressure cookers as well and this one right here is no exception. The Gourmia 8-in-1. That’s just a fancy way to say that it can serve up to 8 functions all in one appliance. This appliance can serve as a grill, it can serve as a steamer, browner, rice cooker yogurt maker/warmer and many more functions that are yet to be numbered.
The Gourmia gives you convenience beyond measure. Beyond what you would expect from your everyday cooker. This is your lifelong kitchen companion. Other than fixing a nice hoc plate of rice, the Gourmia actually is the fastest way to cook meals back home and the most energy efficient as well.
#4. Zojirushi NS-TSC10 5-1/2-Cup (Uncooked) Micom Rice Cooker and Warmer
First of all, this looks nothing like a cooker. I just love it. Thank God for technology. It has a stylish design that just adds some spice right to your kitchen. As if the design was not enough (which if course was not), this kitchen buddy has so many more features it could make you cry.
It has the automatic keep warm and reheating cycle, it has a built-in power cable. You can actually use this to bake cake as well, so if you like cake, then you want this. It also has 2 settings for the delay timer.
#5. Cuisinart CRC-400 Rice Cooker, Stainless Steel, 4-Cup
With the Cuisinart’s steam vent, making rice has never been much easier. Let’s not forget the built-in tray that allows you to steam other foods while your rice cooks. Factoring in the quality of the materials used in the making of this piece of machinery, cleaning it should be a walk in the park. It is totally on-stick.
The Cuisinart steams a variety of foods. It steams meat, rice and vegetables as well. It as well automatically switches to warm when cooking is done. No need for your monitoring.
Well, with all these, rice has never felt sweeter. With every single aspect of the cooking literally made easier. You actually need do nothing more than just put the rice in then let it be. That is all there is to it. A job that needed expertise has now been almost totally done by a machine.
Other than the cooking of rice, there is the aspect of energy conservation by multiple cooking going on at the same time. I could be cooking rice while steaming my vegetables. Well, I guess the only way to go from here is up.
