I have a confession to make.
I have never owned a rice cooker.
While I was bequeathed an electric kettle/hot pot when I left for college, a rice cooker (apparently another one of those ‘off to college’ gifts, along with extra-long sheets and a laundry basket) was a completely foreign concept.
Until now. It was an off-the-cuff comment on Gluten-Free Girl’s blog about cooking all grains in the rice cooker that encouraged me to plunk down $14 for the appliance on Amazon. I looked at it as an experiment. If it meant fluffy quinoa, perfect rice and no-worry millet, well, that would be worth well more than what I paid.
And it did. Tonight’s first quinoa was a success, and the oatmeal and brown rice have turned out just as perfect.
So, I’m hooked. And curious to see what else I can cook in it. Wheat berry salad anyone?
