That's just a guess though, as I was wondering the same thing.
I suppose I could Google it and see what they're all about.
I was thinking it would be a timer as well, but really who doesn't have a timer in their kitchen already?
Is there some other benefit?
I just did a quick google. The general benefits of one of these are the timer, a rice basket and possibly a keep warm option.
Whilst I guess this can easily be achieved on the stove, I can see the benefit of cooking both your rice and vegetables at the same time, whilst freeing up room on the stove.
Just a quick question though, how does steemed rice turn out vs regular boiled rice? Any differences or pretty much the same.
