Cooking rice perfectly is not an easy task, which is why if you visit any home in any country in Asia, you will most likely find a rice cooker. A 220 volt rice cooker makes cooking perfectly fluffy rice a breeze with just a press of a button. Here are some of the key features you need to look for when buying a rice cooker:
• Pre-set timer
Most rice cookers have a one press feature where you just put the cleansed (optionally seasoned) uncooked rice grains and press a button. The rice cooker will finish cooking the rice on its own. It automatically lets you know once the rice is ready. Some rice cookers have multiple features that allow you to set your own time. This could come in handy if you need to cook different types of rice, since some varieties require different cooking times and water levels.
Many high-tech rice cookers have appeared in the market-and they can cook more meals apart from just rice. Some can be used as a slow-cooker, steamer or hot pot for stews and soups. But if you just need a rice cooker solely for rice, then a one-step rice cooker is the most practical option.
Make sure the rice cooker is made with high-quality materials such as stainless steel, which is easy to clean. Also, some of the best rice cookers have heat-insulated covers to prevent burns if you accidentally touch the cover while cooking. The best rice cookers can also hold up to 10 cups of rice, which is perfect for the family.
Whether you eat rice daily or use it to make sushi or burrito, a 220 volt rice cooker is a handy appliance to have in the kitchen. From risotto, to rice, soup and even omelets, rice cookers let you whip up all sorts of delicious meals.
