Question about Rice Cookers.

Can i cook rice the way i normally do?

With veggies and chicken broth?

Or do you just use water in a cooker?

What is the point of a stove when you can make rice easily in a rice cooker
OK that was a wise guy answer. Rice cookers make perfect rice every time. If you are someone who eats a lot of rice then this will make your life easier. Put the rice and water in and turn it on. That is it. You free up a burner on the stove and the rice cooker will cook the rice and turn off when it is done. It will also keep the rice hot for many hours so you can start the rice early and then when you are ready to eat the rice is waiting for you.

Also, How do you program what kind of rice it's going to cook?

What if you are cooking a mixture of Long Grain & Wild Rice?

Mylegsbig - I don't know the answer to your first question but I would assume the instructions will clarify the cooking of different kinds of rice.

Well, most Asians I know use one. Unattended is always a good thing.
Plus, it looks cool.
