Notes about Recipes in this book

  • American long-grain white rice

    • chiken on October 06, 2014

      Very nice one, thank you so much! I have never tried this recipe in my Redmond 4502 multicooker. My children tries it too very often - it is comfortable when you can put into multicooker all the ingredients that need and go for a work or school, when I with children at home there is perfect meal, like in your recipe.

  • Mexican rice

    • adrienneyoung on October 02, 2012

      a keeper! Went well with ropa vieja.

  • Four-grain pilaf

    • MollyB on August 23, 2018

      I really like this recipe, and have made it quite a few times. I've found the wild rice does not cook at the same rate as the other grains; I've had better luck cooking it separately and then stirring it in at the end. (I make a big batch of wild rice and freeze it.) I've made it with red rice instead of the wheat berries, and that was a good variation.

  • Basic couscous

    • adrienneyoung on October 22, 2016

      Note to self: this recipe does not work: it may be that, just generically, rice cookers and couscous are not good companions.

  • Traditional grits

    • cilantrolime on July 09, 2014

      Great basic recipe for grits!

  • Steamed shrimp and jasmine rice

    • MollyB on August 23, 2018

      Good simple recipe, though nothing fancy. It was nice for a quick weeknight meal. It would take well to varying the seasoning - I might try some sort of spice blend on the shrimp if I make it again.

  • Tapioca pudding

    • lisbet on January 16, 2015

      Cooking this particular tapioca pudding is now fondly remembered as the day we created the 'Tapioca Volcano' in our house - milk, tapioca, sugar, egg all spewing forth from the rice cooker and covering everything in its way - you get the picture - and it was quite funny at the time, though cleaning its aftermath was anything but. I now have an excellent recipe from chow.com which involves the stove and a saucepan!

  • Homemade applesauce

    • AngelNewsi on September 19, 2010

      I used freshly-picked, Cortland apples bought at a local farm and instead of apple juice, I used apple cider. The Cortlands hold their shape, so I mashed them up. So good!

  • Waldorf rice salad

    • sideshoes on April 14, 2011

      Very good. Makes a very nice side salad, and is substantial enough for a light lunch.

Publishers Text

Throughout Asia, rice cookers are indispensable. Now, The Ultimate Rice Cooker Cookbook unlocks the rice cooker's potential for the American kitchen. Starting with an explanation of how a rice cooker works and important tips on cooking with one, it proceeds to easy-to-follow charts on how to prepare basic rice, grains, and dried beans. Then it moves on to making a perfect pot of rice, whether it's American long-grain white or Bhutanese red. Once the basics are mastered, there are rice-centered meals such as Butternut Squash Risotto, Fruited Pilaf, and Indonesian Rice Bowl. Next The Ultimate Rice Cooker Cookbook explains how to use the rice cooker to prepare all manner of grain and bean dishes, from Breakfast Barley to Gorgonzola Polenta to Turkey Chili with Baby White Beans. Last, but certainly not least, the book reveals the secrets to making delicious puddings and fruit desserts, preparing and steaming fish, vegetables, tamales, dolmas, dim sum, and more, all made in the rice cooker from start to finish.
