Did you receive a rice cooker as a gift? Or see them in a store and purchase one, to open doors to new rice treats in your kitchen?
You can depend on your Japanese rice cooker to create perfect rice, each time you use it. But the remainder of the time, it probably sits on a kitchen shelf, looking lonely. Why spend the money for a rice cooker and then not use it to make anything else?
Rice cookers can, as you’ll see in this cookbook, make a lot more than just rice, and many recipes that are not Japanese. Of course, you know it brings rice to a perfect boil, reduce it to simmering and lowers the heat to keep it at your preferred temperature for serving, without allowing it to burn. But it can do much more.
Would you like to learn to integrate the rice cooker into your recipes at home?
You’ll enjoy experimenting with your rice cooker, once you give it a chance. It’s especially handy if you won’t want to use the oven on a hot summer day. Just “toss” the ingredients in and let the rice cooker do the rest. You can even use it like a large Dutch oven, although the heat doesn’t get as high.
Let your friends feast on your tasty new dinners, sides and desserts, accomplished with the help of your Japanese rice cooker.
