I got a surprise today. I found out what else you can cook in a rice cooker. The answer is just about everything. Did anyone already know this? Anyone who would like to discuss this or contribute please do
LOL - I cook my rice in an ordinary saucepan, Keezoy, so yes - it can be used for almost anything!:-D:-D:-D
There may be more to rice cookers than I thought, but, even so, I feel it is more a subject for an informal chat, rather than a discussion.
Discussions are for those who want to tell us their opinions, but informal chats are for those who just want to share a few ideas…both are allowed on this site.
Rice cooker? I had to google that, but I’m not surprised there is such a gadget on the market. Like Silver T, I use an ordinary saucepan.
Yeah, bring it on
I was thinking in terms of what would be appropriate, rather than allowed.
Once you get into a discussion, you have to appoint a chair person and sort out an agenda, and all sorts of other stuff. It hardly seems worth the trouble just to talk about alternative uses of a rice cooker. No, I definitely think a chat is the way to go.
Has Matron been round to give you your medicine yet Harbal?
She’s here now, as it happens; along with several other members of staff. We are about to hold a seminar on teapots.
I just looked at some of the recipes you can use the rice cooker for, and they look quite tasty.
I don’t eat a lot of rice, but I love risottos! It also looks like very healthy eating…but I like to stir creamed cheese into some of my risottos!
Jeeeeez!..I created a monster. Pleeeease!..I just want to ask whether anybody uses a rice cooker for things other than rice. If so what do they do. Like tonight I cooked a nice rich beef and wine filling for some Provincial French style pies. What should we call it?..Discussion?..chat?..Cabinet meeting?!..For god’s sake why don’t we call it Nigel. Let’s have a nice cosy Nigel about rice cookers!..Chairperson?..THat could be me. I’m your huckelberry… And agenda?..Well that would be rice cookers innit?..I’m sorry I asked…
I was only trying to be helpful, keezoy, but you obviously don’t appreciate my advice.
There is no need to help Harbal, we managed very well without it before you arrived. The Mods are excellent here!
Goodness mate I was talking with my tongue in my cheek…you know, kind of going along with the banter. I’m really sorry if I upset you…Or are you yanking my chain?..Either way don’t sweat it. I cordially invite you to give advice on any subject you chose.
You seem to be suggesting that I am not excellent, Twink.
Don’t be sorry keezoy, you have tempted me to look for one now. I always thought they were just steamers, but having seen some of the recipes I am very tempted to get one!
No, just pointing out that the mods are so good, we don’t need any more help!
Okay, keezoy; here’s a second piece of advice: Never invite me to give you any advice. :hug:
Let me know if you need any tips on what to do with it.
