Reviews & Summaries
Fast forward to 2013. I read in an Ebert obit that he'd published this book about rice cookers, so I got it from the library. And again, I feel cheated. As others have said: the format is roughly 1/3 paean to rice cookers; 1/3 entertaining blog comments; 1/3 pseudo-recipes. The thing is, the recipes that are not just a grain would be, quite frankly, easier in a crock pot or on the cooktop (e.g. require sautéing onions or meat, etc.). The ones that seem uniquely suited to the rice cooker are few and far between: rice pudding, oatmeal, salty tuna on rice.
Oh we'll, now I know - and I guess I'll keep looking for creative ideas for my rice cooker!
