This is ... My Favourite Kitchen Tool


Handmaiden has hosted this weeks This is. You would think I could just walk into my kitchen and choose something. But no. I looked at many things and had every excuse to not choose them. I finally chose my pressure rice cooker. I know very exciting.

I choose this because this is one of those items in the kitchen that I use at least 2-3 times a week which I can just plug in, throw the rice and water in and leave alone. It also produces the most perfect rice. All nice and fluffy - the way I like it. If I wanted to make rice the same way I would have to be watching it on the stove, watching temperature, boiling, timing etc. Instead I can concentrate on making dinner.

Here is to my humble pressure rice cooker.

Rice cookers are the most fantastic inventions. I can never cook rice in a pan in the same way as I can in the cooker. That looks like a very fancy cooker!

Well, I cook rice in the microwave at my house and it's the same leave and forget kind of thing as a rice cooker. I used to think I was particularly talented at cooking rice in the microwave, but it turns out that the glass bowl I usually use is the brilliant one. When I tried to make it in a different bowl it didn't turn out. So my favourite gadget would be the rice bowl (which it has now been dubbed!).

So true. Rice cookers are _the best_. I love how you can cook other things in them too, like barley and cracked wheat!
