Does everyone use a rice cooker?

Nope...I use a saucepan on the hob..can't see the point of another gadget cluttering up the worktop....

Oh..and I never soak/rinse my rice either...

Re: Soaking rice

So glad someone agrees with me wine-o.  I'm gonna run out of kitchen soon.  It's 15'3" long x 10.6.  I've got my breadmaker always at the ready, KitchenAid, toaster and microwave.  Enough is enough.  Even my electric steamer has to be put away, which is one of my favourite aides.

Re: Soaking rice

I could not manage without my Magimix Thistledo !

I did have a rice cooker but when it went wrong it never get replaced, it was ok when all the family were small and at home but it takes up a lot of space and I could not justify a replacement , I am fine with a saucepam on the stove ,

Mine's approx 14 feet x 9....1 Metre wide range style cooker, 900mm fridge freezer leaving approx 5.4 linear metres of worktop space...(That's about 17 foot 8 in old money)

By the time the kettle,water filter jug, radio,fruit bowl, microwave, knife block, food waste recycling bin, deep fat fryer, toaster and regularly used condiments are out I'm left with so little space it's untrue !!!!

I think all these bits and bobs breed to fill the available space....

Re: Soaking rice

My main work surface is around 7 metres long (an 'L' shape) of which almost 2 metres is taken up by the hob and the sinks. Permanently on the surface is the rice cooker, microwave, toaster, kettle, coffee jar, kitchen roll and a bottle of cooking oil. Every other piece of cooking equipment or kitchen aid is stashed away (slow cooker, liquidiser/grinder/ sandwich toaster, kitchen scales, etc.) as are all the pans.

However, being somewhat lazy, I tend to use the kitchen table for food preparation as I can then sit down.
