Fore meals on the road and at home this is your “work horse” grain cooker! This is one of the most inexpensive kitchen investment that will provide the highest return. It’s a great and easy way to combine grains, legumes and greens. We use ours at lease two times a week and have had it for years!
What to look for in a Rice Cooker:
- Steam Tray
- Size: Make sure it is 6 cups or more as these have a larger, more versatile steam basket
Nice rice cookers are great, however, we have gotten along just fine with out simple press and go. If you eat a lot of rice and like to experiment or would like to have the ability to make sticky rice etc., a higher end cooker might be the better way to go. Our basic cooker works well for us and does a decent job for all types of grain such as brown rice, black rice, quinoa, quinoa/lentil mix, millet, split peas and amaranth.
