The Perfect Rice Cooker steams rice and grains to perfection. Since the Perfect Rice Cooker cooks with steam there won’t be any hot spots from burners that are uneven or can’t be reduced to a true simmer. These are stove issues that can scorch, burn or ruin the rice and is a problem that plagues most people and prevents them from successfully cooking rice. Your rice will never boil over, dry out, burn, or overcook. It can cook all varieties of rice from jasmine to brown to sushi to sweet sticky rice. In addition, the rice cooker is also perfect for cooking other grains and cereals such as barley, quinoa, millet, amaranth and couscous. Its convenient bamboo bail handle, which may be left attached when steaming, makes lifting and moving the rice cooker safe and easy. The Perfect Rice Cooker is also a beautiful and versatile serving piece that can be brought right to the table. The heavy porcelain body and domed lid keep rice and grains hot and delicious throughout the entire meal. And when not in use for cooking, storing, serving or reheating food, it makes a practical ice bucket! Simply measure rice and liquid and add to the Rice Cooker. Put the Rice Cooker in a stock pot partially filled with water and cook until done. If you can boil water, you can make perfect rice every time with the Perfect Rice Cooker. Made of the same high-fired porcelain as oven-safe casseroles, the Perfect Rice Cooker is strong, durable and heat resistant.
