I especially use this when I make Weight Watcher’s Fried Rice or Weight Watcher’s Black Bean and Rice Enchiladas and need plain, cold rice. There are a lot of versions out there and mine is a Zojirushi. Measure the water and the rice and let it go; 20 minutes later and you have your rice.
This kitchen gadget makes a lot of rice, perfect for cold rice when you need it or serving a crowd. I often will freeze the rice in portions just to have it on hand.
I also have a Breville Risotto Plus that not only makes plain rice, but risotto, wild rice, sushi and quinoa. It also steams and is a slow cooker. I love this rice cooker because it cooks all the types of rice. See Kitchen Gadgets – Breville The Risotto Plus.
