I need a rice cooker

I need a rice cooker. Seems my "wife" gave away or tossed out my rice cooker. I want to start making sushi again.

Well Bang - I have NO idea if this is any good or not ... but looking through the circular from Walgreens this morning they have a 3-cup rice cooker on sale for $7.99 (regular price is $9.99).

Bang, get the Panasonic cooker that I have. The rice comes out very good. I posted a pic under the thread asking about how do you cook rice.

Rice cookers --

My mom has one. I should add it to my kitchen.

A microwave rice cooker. You toss in the rice, water, and put it in the microwave.

Rice is perfect. I do several quarts and keep in the fridge for a base with soups, veggies, "rice puddings" with stuff in the blender.

It should be easy to find. Kitchen Kaboodle, or online.

If you want your rice to come out good, do NOT use a microwave rice cooker. Try both methods side by side. The electric rice cooker will beat the microwave every time.

Hmmmmmmmm . . . actuallly, I had a microwave oven. It sat on the counter and took up space for about three months without ever being used. So I boxed it up and put it in storage. Microwaves don't "cook" so much as they heat-up stuff.

Nonetheless, this microwave rice thingie seems to produce good stuff. A mix of medium grain brown, Basamati (?) and wild rice.

And now you have me looking at a conventional rice cooker! Because I don't do the microwave, and I don't do the boiling pot on the stove. Moved here about two yrs ago, and I haven't been eating rice. There's been plenty of other stuff on the menu.
