I just got a rice cooker and a quick search has told me I can make all sorts of things in it. I already did plain rice and now it has oats sitting in it ready to try out porridge in the morning. Next week, after a busy weekend at work, I will try out rice cooker cake.

Who has a rice cooker? Any tips and recipes to share?

(if there is already a rice cooker thread that I haven't noticed someone just link me there, please)

I *love* my rice cooker. It's just a basic model, no fuzzy logic or anything. I use it for rice and nothing else (yet).

EDIT: Now that I think about it, I've also steamed stuff in it.

I seldom use it for its original purpose, as I don't eat that much grain. However I find it wonderful when it comes to steaming veggies. I haven't used it for much, actually, but I'm really curious about this rice cooker cake.

Being in China and stuck wth a wok, a hot plate and a rice cooker, all of which I don't really know how to use, any rice-cooker tip would be more than welcome indeed
I haven't found the internet particularly helpful so far.

I just make plain rice in mine
But I love it. My mom always talked about wanting one again after my dad wouldn't give ours back when we moved out, and then about two years ago we finally got one. My favorite is some mexican rice with tomato sauce instead of water.

I've never had any difficulty with quinoa with regular pots, cooks quick enough. Does the rice cooker speed up cooking brown or other whole grain rice vs a traditional pot on the stove?

As far as dishwashers go, mine does all of our dishes by hand.

No, it doesn't cook any faster, it's mainly a convenience because you don't have to adjust the temperature. It does it automatically and then shuts off automatically so I can turn it on and leave the house without burning the rice.

zojirushi is a good brand. i have one like that but it has induction heating. they make some even more sophisticated pressurized models now.

Now I mostly use it for Quinoa with some occasional Basmati.
