Until I met my husband, I only ever cooked rice on the stove. Adding an appliance just to cook rice didn’t make sense in my tiny kitchen! For Jeremy, though, the rice cooker was an essential. And once I saw how easy it was to use, I was a convert.
But there were still a few things I didn’t like about our standard rice cooker. It often overcooked brown rice. It didn’t have much versatility. And, worst of all, it splattered starchy water on the countertop every time I used it.
