just wonderin', how long did it take you to break your slow cooker, bakechef? i just bought a 4 quart west bend cooker. it's basic, was priced right, and sure is a pretty thing. i hope it lasts me awhile....

Here's another recipe for perfect rice every time. Rinse one cup of rice until the water runs clear, put it into the rice cooker with two cups of water and push the button. When the rice cooker buzzes, perfect rice!

No muss, no fuss, you don't have to babysit it, and when it's done cooking, it will keep the rice at eating temperature until you yank the plug out of the wall.
