I have had an electric rice cooker for a long time, Kitchen Gadgets – Rice Cookers, but it only cooked white and brown rice. This new device by Breville makes delicious risotto using arborio rice. In addition it cooks all kinds of rice such as white, brown, wild rice and sushi; makes quinoa and can also be used as a slow cooker and to steam vegetables. This gadget does most of the work! Arborio and orzo are favorites in my family; see my recipes Savory Orzo and also Risotto Milanese Two Ways.
For example; add three cups of rice and 3 cups of water (or use chicken broth for more flavor) push the rice button, then the start button and 15 minutes later you have 3 cups of rice. How easy is that? This kitchen gadget is very handy and will be used often in my kitchen.
