Rice cooker question

Can I cook brown rice the same as white rice in a rice cooker? Will it come out OK?
Any special tips I should know? Can I set it up the night before like I can with white rice? Any recommended brands of rice cookers to buy?

Lots of questions, so TIA for answers.

Welcome to the site. Someone will come along and give you a more in depth answer, but the short answer is yes you can use it with brown rice. It will actually work with any type of rice.

I might be wrong but how good of results you have i think its dependent on the rice cooker. I got one of those fancy fuzzy logic rice cookers (sanyo) and brown rice comes out great. It even has a special setting for brown rice.

brown rice takes longer, but cooks just fine.

Thanks for the replies

So I'm OK getting a cheapo rice cooker? No advantage to spending lots of cash?

Some chepo ones work great, but others do not. I had a cheap one that burnt the rice every time. I got rid of it and will be buying a more expensive one some day.

I'm glad someone mentioned brown rice takes a lot longer than white rice to cook.

Thanks for the advice/replies.

Today I ordered a Sanyo ECJ-E35S.


Did I do OK (this is for a small family, no production stuff)??

So what is the point of a rice cooker when you can make it easily on the stove?
