ebay :) they do a fab one for around £7 with a red lid. Only issue is its only enough rice for 2-4 people and I need a larger one. I have a larger one that I've had for over 10 years same make but they no longer seem to make that size.


So my list

Microwave rice cooker
George Foreman

(my caffetiere (sp) for my sanity :8855: )

Best thing I've had for 20 odd years for cooking rice is a Tupperware multi server ( I thunk it's called that) there's always lots on eBay. It's a square cream box with coloured lid,with a like square colander inside. You boil your rice on the hob in a pan for 8 mins ish,just so it's not hard, then Ypu tip the pan of rice and boiling water into the multi server,and pop lid on quick. It drains the water down through colander, and steams the rice to fluff. Everyone who's ever had my rice comments. It does lots of other things too not just rice. X

What do these rice cookers actually do then? Sorry if that sounds dumb but my rice takes 8 min in a pan anyway, does it whizz it about or do something super yum to it?

It steams the rice - it turns out perfect every time and is easier to clean than if doing it in a pot

You can also use it to steam other foods like veggies in the microwave

And I use the bowl for rice pudding, pasta and sauce, risotto and other dishes I cook in the microwave
