We eat lots of rice here at WWHQ, and one thing I cannot stand is soggy, gluggy rice.
Many years ago I used to boil rice on the stove and it would be hit and miss. Probably more miss that hit.
Also many years ago I bought a microwave rice cooker on clearance at David Jones.
Back then it cost me $13.00, but more than a decade later it still works perfectly every single time.
See, perfect fluffy rice.
I have used the rice cooker for white, brown and wild rice and all have worked out beautifully.
This rice also makes a really good fried rice due to no excess water.
It is incredibly easy to clean and the cooked rice remnants come away easily.
Mine being a bit on in years is slightly different from the ones you can now, but I am sure they work exactly the same.
I was so surprised when I visited a friend of mine who had only just bought one from
Tupperware and she had never heard of them before. I thought every kitchen would have one as they are so awesome.
This version you can pop into your trolley next time you go to the supermarket.
The last thing you probably want is another kitchen appliance, but this one is worth having and you will use it all the time.
