I always have at least 3 different kinds of rice on my shelf (and sometimes in my freezer). Whether it’s Jasmine, brown, basmati or wild, we enjoy rice as a side dish at least once a week and often as component of a main dish. It’s such a simple and satisfying grain, and so easy to work with, at least most of the time.
But rice has a dark side for some people…many of you have told me that you have a hard time getting the proportions and timing right for your rice on the stovetop, or your rice boils over while it’s cooking, sticks to the bottom of the pan, or just comes out gummy or watery. That’s exactly why so many people are deeply attached to their rice cookers.
Experienced cooks I know tell me that Zojirushi makes the most reliable, easiest to use rice cookers of all. That’s why I’m delighted to announce that Zojirushi has agreed to let Alice and me give away one of their top of the line rice cookers, the Neuro 5 ½ cup Fuzzy Rice Cooker & Warmer, which retails for nearly $200! Zojirushi rice cookers can help you make perfect white or brown rice every time. They are easy to use and easy to clean. This thing is so clever it can practically set the table for you!
