Rice Cooker - Multi Use
I have found over the years that the Rice Cooker has many uses and used for making anything and it very seldom makes rice.
The rice cooker I have was found at a Walmart for under $20.00 has withstood the rigors of truck life for at least a million miles. I use the cooker almost daily for one thing or another. I have recipe that really demonstrates the versatility of this appliance.
Spaghetti and Meat Sauce
Cook the spaghetti in the rice cooker and drain
Cook hamburger in rice cooker with onions and garlic
add back in the drained hamburger with spaghetti sauce of your choice
add back in drained spaghetti and heat
Place left over spaghetti in baggie for ease of storage and refrigerate
heat water and dish soap up in rice cooker and wash any dishes you might have used as well as the rice cooker.
Be careful to only use plastic so as not to mar the teflon surface of the rice cooker.
When I make salmon or other dishes I often fill the steamer basket with vegetables
I have yet to find anything that can beat the price and versatility of the Rice Cooker!
