Editorial Reviews

Booklist - Mark Knoblauch
The rice cooker conveniently yields perfect grains beyond simply rice. Wheat, barley, rye, quinoa, oats, millet, and more come out toothsome and never scorched. Beans, peanuts, and lentils also profit from the rice cooker's controlled heat. Recipes encompass all these grains as well as more complex soups, stews, and chili that use the appliance to ease both cooking and cleanup. Chin inventories and explains the array of rice cookers currently available.
