Say Goodbye to Your Old Pot: 5 Rice Cookers that Serve You a Bowl of Deliciousness

25 September 2017 | Reymart Jan Sarigumba

Many people prefer the convenience of instant or microwave-ready rice, as you can cook it with minimal effort in a few minutes. But these 5 rice cookers might give you a change of heart.

If you eat instant rice on a daily basis, do keep in mind that they are expensive, with their cost adding up over time. Also, in terms of nutritional content, instant rice has pre-cooked and dehydrated ingredients, making the use of rice cookers more sensible because of the nutrients, taste, and texture they provide. Remember that a freshly prepared bowl of rice can’t be compared to a box of instant rice with its dehydrated contents. If you are in the market for your first rice cooker or upgrade your old one, here are some appliances to consider.
