A rice cooker is a foolproof way to get perfectly cooked rice with minimal effort. It eliminates that undercooked crunch or even worse, the overcooked mush that can happen on the stovetop. Plus, it has the same set-and-forget ease of a slow cooker – simply measure out your ingredients, place them in the cooker and set the timer accordingly.

Don’t let the name fool you – a rice cooker does much more than cook rice. You can cook lentils and beans, hearty soups or even creamy macaroni and cheese. It’s also great for steaming vegetables, meats and seafood. Use the steamer and cooker at the same time to make an entire meal, like a decadent dish of shrimp and grits. The possibilities are endless.

Whether it’s a simple side or a main dish, the rice cooker is great for easy cooking that requires little monitoring. See for yourself why this appliance has become a kitchen essential by trying a few of these recipes in your rice cooker.
