My life has become quite hectic since I started my new job. This means I don’t have much time left, especially not cooking. I started eating out, but that turned out to be quite expensive. Thus, I have had to find an easy and quick meal to cook. Then, it’s no wonder rice has become my new favorite meal. It’s nutritious and is edible with almost anything, plus, there are so many different ways of cooking it. Having come to this conclusion, all I had to do was purchase a decent rice cooker. The best rice cookers today have so many additional features, it’s unbelievable. There are so many options it took quite a long time to get the best rice cooker for me. There were two types of cookers in the market, the conventional cookers and fuzzy logic cookers. I narrowed my search to a medium sized cooker which had the “quick-cooking” option, naturally that was my first consideration. Other options available were, “hard” and “soft”.
Cooking white rice in either cooker would be no problem; however brown rice was more difficult to cook. Thereby, making the intelligent cooker decision came easily. There are able to make automatic decisions while the rice is actually cooking. This is done by humidity and temperature sensors that measure and send information to an inbuilt microprocessor that makes changes that allow for the best cooked rice.
Different types of rice have different pre-programmed settings. There are processes that go into cooking each batch of rice i.e. soaking, cooking, steaming and lastly keeping the rice warm. The different types of rice require a different duration for each of the processes. There are many other settings available. You have to first consider what type of rice you intend to cook. A greater number of options doesn’t necessarily mean the better rice cooker. One just has to choose the best rice cooker for him/herself.
