Rice Cooker?
0

8 posts in this topic

I am a quinoa girl myself, but the family loves rice, especially wild rice. All the wild rice mixes that are gluten-free are not that great. So, I have made it a few times from scratch. I suck at cooking rice, apparently. Plus, it takes FOREVER and I just don't have that kind of time after work.

Can anyone recommend a rice cooker that I can cook rice with broth instead of water, include veggies (onion, garlic, etc.) and has a delay start timer so it can start while I am still sitting in traffic? Also, if the cooker has another function (besides rice), that would be great too. My husband is getting sick of my kitchen gadets. ;)

You just described the perfect personal chef. :).

Sorry, have nothing for you EXCEPT you can partially cook some grains and freeze, then finish cooking them later. That would allow you to batch cook, and shorten your cook time when you get home.

Or, maybe you could adapt it to a crock pot?

I use broth's as well as diced tomatoes in my rice cooker, it is made by Oyster, a cup or two of rice takes about 10-15 minutes. But it doesn't have a timer.

My rice cooker also includes a steamer basket and I have included broth , tomaoes and bags of frozen veggies into the rice. No timer though . It's a Rival.

Look into a Japanese rice cooker like Zojirushi. Not cheap but they have all sorts of bells and whistles. There are different functions for white or brown rice. They have a timer. Mine is quite old but the newer once I have seen look great.

We have a Zojirushi and we love it. We've had it for at least 10 years and no problems. I don't use the timer function often, but it was quite intuitive (which was good since I had lost the instructions by then) when I did try it.

I only cook rice with water (so far), but I know you can use it with broth, etc. I assume you could throw veggies in there as well.

The nonstick pot is also key.

It has settings for brown rice, white rice, sushi rice, and "fast cook" (which basically uses higher heat -- it cooks faster but uses more water, I think), plus various other things we've never explored.

Check Asian markets. We've used National/Panasonic for decades. It is the workhorse of our kitchen. The newer models are investments but they really pay off. The only reason we got a newer one after more than 10 years on our old one was because the newer one was given to us and had a few more functions. Our old one was still going strong. I add veggies, stock etc. and cook brown rice or mixed grain rice all the time.

    • Over the past month or so, I have been have a fuzzy feeling in my left ear canal. The best I can describe is it feels like there is a bug in my ear, but when ear is checked, no bug but the fuzzy stays.  Any ideas?  Or is this one of those strange neurological symptoms from gluten?  Please don't tell me you need to get ti checked out, because all the doctors will say is "There's nothing wrong, everything's normal." BLAH!
    • Breakfast on the go is always trickiest for me - I go with a whole fruit - banana, apple - or a yogurt, or a small bag of nuts.  Occasionally, I have a couple of hardboiled eggs at my local pret a manger.  Much prefer breakfast at home, where I can make myself an egg and cheese sandwich with avocado on gluten free toast.  Or cereal ;-)
    • thanks for your input, the reason I do the blood test is because I found out my duagther has it recently and she carry dq2 gene,so must be from my husband or me...im in the process waiting for my genetic test back,,by the way,I do have lots of celiac symptom,so it could be gluten sensitiive you said,thanks again.  
    • No I'm in the UK, from what I've been told that's a good thing for gluten labeling and standards compliance. What you and everyone else on here says makes me sense than what the doctors are saying (a confused message at best is what they're giving me, each one with a slightly different version of it). My referral letter is in the post so on theory appointment may not be that far away. I have a load of my favourite Quorn stuff (non-gluten-free version) in the freezer so perhaps using that up may be a good way to proceed for now. I'm out at the moment and torn whether to try chips from a café, in the strict gluten-free future would probably be a no-no but in current situation probably not so bad...
    • I also only really eat one meal a day and always after I get home. I never really feel hungrey. I call it 'Pavlov's dog in reverse'.  I think it comes from so many years of food making me sick. I have gotten to the point where I now at least can eat a sandwhich and some fruit during the day but it wasn't a quick process. When folks get like that it is very important to make sure that one meal has a good amount of both calories and nutrtion.  If your diet is how you describe you are starving yourself.  You need to get yourself used to eating again.  What helped me was carrying a baggie with some nuts and dry fruit with maybe even a handful of gluten free pretzels and always some chocolate baking chips. I just ate couple pieces when I thought of it throughout the day. A little bit of cheese and a couple safe crackers, a piece of fruit or a small tin or individual serving snack pack are also good. You need to get some nutrition during the day so you can feel up to cooking a simple full meal  for dinner. I hope your feeling better soon.
