Pressure cooker can be a good rice cooker. My mom has been using it as her main rice cooker for over 20 years. Pressure cooker itself is convenient and reliable - reliable, I mean it makes good rice and usually we don’t have worry about burning. But I shamefully seek for more convenience and use this expensive pressure rice cooker specially made for rice cooking.
This pressure rice cooker is electric and automatic, so you don’t have to worry about adjusting stove. ( I am so forgetful and I would waste many pots from burning if I had to cook it using a regular pot.)
Let me list its attractions here:
You can cook brown rice in 35 minutes without soaking it overnight.
You don’t have to worry about adjusting stove.
You don’t have to worry about burning pots.
You can cook lots of other dishes using this cooker.
You can set the timer.
And it talks when it start and finishes cooking.
It speaks only in Korean. Hopefully, they will make it one that speaks in English.
This has made my life so easier. I wash brown rice and beans at night and set its timers to cook it early in the morning so I don’t have to worry about all that in busy mornings.
Also, the rice it cooks is so delicious, I know it may sound weird saying that rice is delicious. But Koreans can eat rice seven days a week. That’s how much we love it.
Let me show how I actually use this cooker and what I do with cooked rice when I don’t finish it at a time in my next post.
