The electric rice cooker has proven a popular kitchen appliance among consumers of rice as a daily diet staple. The machine’s set-it-and-forget-it ease of operation and the superior, succulent cooked grain it produces make it a worthwhile investment. As Chin points out, the rice cooker conveniently yields perfect grains beyond simply rice. Wheat, barley, rye, quinoa, oats, millet, and more come out toothsome and never scorched. Beans, peanuts, and lentils also profit from the rice cooker’s controlled heat. Recipes encompass all these grains as well as more complex soups, stews, and chili that use the appliance to ease both cooking and cleanup. Chin inventories and explains the array of rice cookers currently available, from the least expensive to computer-controlled induction models that employ fuzzy logic to make every grain a model of perfection. She also describes turning the cooker into a steamer to produce steamed Chinese dumplings. --Mark Knoblauch
