I have to do a fair amount brown rice on my new meal plan. I need to pick a rice cooker. I know absolutely nothing about them. Will the $30 Aroma cooker from amazon get the job done. Thanks for suggestions.
yeah I was kinda wondering about quinoa also?I have had an Aroma 8 cup ($34) rice cooker for a few years now. I generally cook brown rice twice a week. It does what I bought it for. This is actually my second Aroma, when it dies, I probably buy a third.
Oh yeah, it's not just for rice either. I have used for wheat berries, amaranth, buckwheat groats, barley,etc.
Great, thanks so much for the advice.Quicker cooking time items like quinoa, I would rather do in a pot; but that doesn't mean you can't do it in a rice cooker, I just haven't is all it means.
If I cooked quinoa more, I would probably figure out how to do it in the rice cooker. :~)
I love the plug it in and forget about factor of a rice cooker, it's just that sometimes it takes a batch or two of a different item to figure out ratio.
I have this exact model and find it to be great. I have been using it for years and it's always worked great for me.I have to do a fair amount brown rice on my new meal plan.

Dammit, I bought the Aroma rice cooker. Those things look awesome. Found a bunch of recipes for them also. That might need to be my next purchaseI wouldn't buy a rice cooker after having owned an Instant Pot. Its a pressure cooker that also serves as a rice cooker, crock pot and will even make yogurt. It sells from $99 to $129 when its not on sale, but totally worth it and replaces several other pieces of equipment. Most importantly, its a lot safer than my old fashioned aluminum pressure cooker.
