One of the most useful appliances Flannel Man and I received as a wedding gift is our rice cooker. For some reason, without this little wonder, I can't seem to get the right balance of water and rice. It's always too dry or too mushy. So yay for something that tells you exactly how much water and rice to use and then you just push a button and it cooks until it's done. It's like magic.
In our home it actually gets used more as a veggie steamer. The cooker comes with a steamer tray and I can just drop frozen broccoli or green beans in with two cups of water and 15 minutes later they are ready to go.
