Nail, what do you cook in your rice cooker besides, I assume, rice ?
Think of it as a pot that heats itself to boiling and then cuts off to super-low to keep warm. I've done steel cut oatmeal, macaroni, spaghetti, quinoa, grits, got a steam tray so shrimp and veggies, one-pot meals w/ chicken and steam veg, passable chili.
I use dry beans in what i call chili, it's so far divorced from what chili should be i know, but i feel i need more horsepower to do dry beans, looking at a pressure cooker.
I use it as a heated mixing bowl for making pizza or bread dough w/ no water heater.
Lil black and decker 3 cup dealie, might get one at wal mart for next to nothing. Eats like 45 watts on warm, 400ish watts on cook.
I did get a lot of rice, but i gotta be honest with myself, i can't eat that shite anymore.
they got various combinations of steamer rice cooker and pressure cooker, that kinda stuff interests me.
I'd just like to get it out there, incidentally, i don't care how poisonous it is, if i had it to do over i'd order EVERYTHING with teflon. Thank god my rice cooker's got it, i empty out my water tank washing my stainless pans.
