Did you know you could make good use of a rice cooker at home? Chances are high, since these appliances became very versatile in the past few years. If you live a busy life but you are interested in eating healthier at home, then you will probably get some value from this article and other rice cooker reviews too.
First of all, the timer function from rice cookers allows you to setup you rice early in the morning, as you leave for work, and come back in the evening to find the rice cooked and preserved at the serving temperature. The same applies, for example, if you’d like to have oatmeal the next morning.
Also, these cookers will save you time cleaning and maintaining them, since both the innter lid and pot are removable and easily washable. Even if there are food leftovers in the bottom, which is unlikely, all you need to do is to put some water and leave it resting for 10 minutes or so, and then wash it. Chances are you problem will be ‘solved’ by then.
And by eating healthier, I mean you will be able to prepare brown rice and steam vegetables, seafood and mushroom. Depending on the model and capacity, you can prepare your entire meal at once. This is also better for the environment and your pocket, since it is more efficient and it saves energy.
If you are fortunate enough to own the best Zojirushi rice cooker, the rice you prepare will be much fluffier and tastier because the machine will do all the heavy lifting for you. No need to worry about undercooking or burning the rice anymore! Storage is also simplified, since the cord is retractable.
So, for all these reasons I mentioned, I find the rice cooker to be my best friend in the kitchen. It helps me to get more done in less time, which is an incentive overall to eat more at home, as well as to eat better foods.
