A Revelation. Literally life-alteringly good.
It doesn't get much better than this if you like the starchy stuff. Let's review:
Buy rice. Maybe some nice rice, like Jasmine or something. Brown basmati if you're feeling a little kooky.
Measure out a level cup. Rinse it.
Put it in the rice cooker.
Fill the cooker with water to the indicated line.
Maybe if you're feeling saucy, sprinkle some salt and a pat of butter in there.
Hit the 'menu' button to tell the thing if you're cooking white or brown rice.
Hit the 'cook' button. It sings to you.
It sings to you again when the rice is done. Fluff it. Easy boys. Just fluff it with the rice fluffer they give you.
Oh, and the thing never makes a mistake. Perfect rice, every time. Dagnabbit that's beautiful.
One last note - it is a nice looking appliance as well. Not that I sit around the kitchen ogling my appliances all that often, but as appliances go this one is pretty sharp.
