About 40 years ago, I bought an electric bacon cooker. What a piece of junk!!!!

I used it once and spent at least an hour cleaning it. It went in the garbage the next day.

I still hear about this from my husband.

Did anyone, anyone in the world fall for that plastic tube gadget thing that you could pour hot water in and add your pasta, then let sit on the counter and it cooked the pasta to perfection

Nobody I know of anyway lol

How can they get away with selling something like that?

Nevermind, there is a sucker born every minute and I'm sure the sellers have made a fortune .

But unlike some appliances I've bought over the years -- can you say Yogurt Maker? - - I use this at least a couple times a week. Sure, you can cook rice in a pan, but this is so simple, foolproof, and doesn't need my attention after I throw in the rice, water, and a dash of salt. Perfect rice -- whether it's regular, basmati, sticky, brown, etc., -- every single time without sacrificing one of my burners. Plus, if you're adventurous and the autormatic rice cooker cookbook, there are many good rice-based dishes you can make in it. Oh, and it's a breeze to clean.

I am not an employee for any manufacturer of said product, nor do I own stock in any related company.

Gotta go with you 100% on this one---i could not LIVE without my rice cooker especially when you are cooking for crowds. When I do cook for crowds i put the cooked rice in large ziploc baggies and reheat in the microwave, baggies and all. Like you, I have made all kinds of rices in mine--sure , you may have to adjust water amounts after making a particular variety for the first time but what a life safer.

I was close really close to falling for it, but I went with my instincts and decided that it probably would not work.

Now you see, I love my Showtime Rotisserie. I use it at least once every two weeks.

I can't believe you don't like your Showtime Rotisserie. My son wanted the double one for a couple of years but didn't want to buy it himself. (hint, hint.) So I bought him one last Christmas. He made a couple of chickens and invited the family for dinner. Every one of us thought the chicken was awesome. They came out brown, crispy and very tender and juicy. He has since made ribs, which topped mine by a long shot and several other meals cooked in this gadget. including a small ham that we polished off completely. He loves it and so do I . As far as I'm concerned he can invite me to dinner anytime. I'm so curious as to why some people don't like it and others love it.
