Rice cookers have become a must have these days. Not because they are on trend, but because of the busy lifestyle. Almost everyone wants a healthy diet and people have started to cook instead of ordering stuff from a restaurant. I mean, who can deny the fact that the homemade food is the best and that buying a small appliance such as a rice cooker can help you in having timely and healthy meals? No one!
If you happen to be someone who needs to buy a rice cooker or who has a rice cooker but is unsure whether to use it or not or just to have an understanding of the working of the rice cookers, then this is the right web page. We will tell you how rice cookers work, and how you can get the best rice cooker for the lowest price possible.
The rice cookers (modern day, induction ones) work on the very basic principle that is ‘boil the rice with double the amount of water and keep boiling till the water evaporates completely’. Though the modern technology and the natural instinct of the man have made cooking rice as well as its allied dishes both easy and sophisticated; the basic principle still remains the same.
To start with, you put in the rice and water and other ingredients such as salt etc. in the rice cooker and switch the button on. Then, the rice cooker will automatically cook the rice slowly and will beep you once the cooking is over. If you want to steam the veggies, soy chunks or meat in the rice cooker; then you can place them in the rice cooker steamer basket which generally comes with the cooker itself. If you want that the rice should stay warm for a particular time, or until you want it to be, then you can use the keep-warm feature. This feature allows you to have warm and tasty rice even after hours of cooking.
Another very common feature in the rice cookers is the Delayed Timer which allows you to plan the meals ahead of time. You have to put in the rice and water and feed the time by which you want the rice ready and the cooker will store it. Finally, as the time is reached, the cooker will beep and start cooking on its own. This makes cooking very easy and fun too. I mean, you can leave the rice ready to be cooked and get ready in the meantime. Apart from the normal white rice, the rice cookers will also allow you to cook brown rice, sushi rice, mixed rice, Spanish rice, GABA rice, GABA Brown and rice porridge etc.
Hence, cooking in a rice cooker is not only fun but really simple.
Oops.. My cooker beeped. Now I am going to have a delicious bowl of brown rice and steamed broccoli and you can start making your own.
