Keep the kitchen cool

Posted: July 15, 2010

This digital rice cooker is a perfect meal-maker in the summer heat. Cooks rice to perfection and can simultaneously steam vegetables and meats for easy, all-in-one meals. The nonstick inner pot is dishwasher safe, and a programmable 15-hour delay timer allows you to add rice and water in the morning and return home to find it hot and ready.
