In our hurry flurry world folks may avoid brown rice because it takes more time to cook compared to the stripped down white stuff. Enter the rice cooker – preferably a model with a brown rice setting and a delay time option. Simply follow the manufacturer’s instructions for perfect rice that’s ready when you need it.
I’ve grown very fond of my brown rice cooker. It’s not just for rice! I also use it to make polenta (no stirring!) and even more surprising – complete pasta dinners!
There are a number of different models to choose from. I started out with a basic Aroma model that featured a delay timer and a keep warm option. However, cooking anything beyond white rice was a bit of a guessing game. I recently upgraded to an Aroma model with some additional settings – including a distinction between white and brown rice – and I have been very happy with the results.
