The first time I saw a rice cooker, I thought it was the most ridiculous thing I’d ever seen. I mean, why in the world would you buy a machine to make rice when you could just as easily do it on the stove?
But, one of my co-workers has one, and she swears by the thing. She makes rice almost every day, but she also uses her cooker to cook things like beans, potatoes, and stews.
So I soon discovered that while Aroma’s rice cookers have been specially designed to cook rice perfectly they can also be used to steam meats, vegetables, and fish, warm soups, and stews.
You can even purchase electric condiments in order to cook a whole meal in your cooker.
And… Because a rice cooker can keep moist heat, it’s very suitable to cook chicken.
