Have you ever read Roger Ebert’s paean to rice cookers? Even if you have no interest in rice cookers it is sort of a quirky, soothing read somehow, and if you do have any latent interest in rice cookers it makes a strong case for ownership of one. I have an Aroma rice cooker that I like a lot, it has settings for brown and white rice. Right now it is cooking away in my kitchen, I am making this one-pot rice-and-beans recipe that I like a lot — I just put one rice-cooker-cup of brown rice in, about a cup of black beans that have soaked overnight, a can of Rotel tomatoes and any spices I want, and then fill it up to the top line (or a little less) with water and hit the “brown rice” button. It comes out perfect every time, and is very easy and cheap if you are a person who needs very easy, very cheap homemade food cooked in a hands-off manner. You’re welcome.
