A Good Rice Cooker

rice cooker
I like rice. When I first started my weight loss journey back in 1990, I ate rice as the primary part of my diet. Now, I control my starch intake and eat the best quality rice, on occasion. I prefer brown rice, but I also like to have my rice available easily and effectivley.

I use brown rice on my re-feed days as my primary source of starchy carbohydrates.

We recently had a Japanese student begin living with us, and today he asked me for my opinion on a good rice cooker. We have one, but it's a set and forget version. You turn it on, and 40 minutes later you've got rice.

Yasushi, the student living with us, wanted one that he could set or time, and come back to later to have warm rice. I didn't know this existed. He sent me this rice cooker so that he could have my opinion on it and where he could get one in Edmonton. The price of $120 US caught me a bit off guard, but if it does what is says it's supposed to do, and if Yasushi thinks it's a good buy, then it must be.

anyone have any experience with this rice cooker? Zojirushi NS-LAC05 Micom 3-Cup Rice Cooker and Warmer, Stainless Steel

I don't know what brands are available to you where you live but I've seen the same functionality on some Chinese brands which cost a lot less.
