Why not get an instant pot?

BTW this is our recent rice cooker (we cook rice everyday) https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

What do you do when you make something in an Instant Pot that you want to serve over rice?

We've talked about this before It's easy to make rice in the microwave or on the stovetop.

My comment was in response to Powerplantop's suggestion to use an Instant Pot as a rice cooker, as they have a rice cooking function.

The OP is looking for a recommendation for a rice cooker. What rice cookers do you have experience with, and what kind of rice did you cook in them?

I just cook a classic white rice, then add stuff to it later..usually in a larger pan, a la fried rice..sometimes I will sub chicken broth for water and throw in some spices depending on what I am going to do..
And I find that Basmati works best as it doesn't get too mushy

I guess I forgot what the original question was It's always good, when possible, to know more than one technique for accomplishing a kitchen task, though, don't you think?

I have been using a Sanyo rice cooker/slow cooker for about 5 years. Got it in a thrift store, as new and complete. 5 cup, works perfectly. I have been curious about Vitaclay cookers, but they are costy. Saw one today in a shop. Very nice looking cooker, but huge.

Bought the Vitaclay, 8 cup. Complete, $7.50+tax. I'll let you know what I think when I've tried it. I like the idea of a clay cooking vessel.
