A guide to buying a microwave rice cooker

Rice is a wonderful and inexpensive staple that you can have with a variety of different meals. When preparing rice as a side dish or as part of the main meal, like for a stir fry, there are a number of different ways to cook your rice. One of the best ways to cook rice and get it perfect every time is to invest in a microwave rice cooker. However, there are many different rice makers so find out, in this article, what features are important before you buy.

Cooking time and technology

One of the first things to look at when buying a rice cooker is how the cooker works and what the cooking time of the rice is. The cooking method of the rice makes a big difference, as rice can sometimes become either hard, mushy or stuck together so it doesn't taste right. Steamed rice Many people prefer steamed rice and if that is your preference, then you should consider a microwave rice cooker that has microwave steamer technology. The specific brands and models of rice cooker will explain exactly how they work and how long it takes to prepare rice within them. One that is both time efficient and cooks rice the way you want it to can be the ideal purchase.

Cooking capacity

Quantity of rice The next thing to consider when buying a microwave rice cooker is how much rice it can hold and cook at a time. This might not be a concern for you if you are making single helpings for one person, but if you have a big family or want to make large meals and produce a lot of rice, then you need to focus on the rice cooker instructions to see how many serving sizes you can make at one time. Remember, the cooker has to fit into the microwave so it is always going to be limited in size. If you cannot get enough servings from the microwave rice cookers or rice steamer you are looking at, then think about perhaps getting a larger electric rice cooker for the counters.

Dishwasher safe

The last consideration is whether your rice cooker is dishwasher safe. This can help make the microwave rice cooker much easier to use.
