Preparing cups of rice should be as simple as the press of a button. With a proper rice cooker, that dream is a reality, as this pre-programmed rice cooker has different settings for both white or brown rice preparation. The inside pot contains level markers to help you prepare your rice with the precise amount of water to rice ratio. Utilize the delay timer so you can have your rice start its cooking at a later time to be ready when you get home. The delay timer ranges from 1 to 15 hours, and once your rice is ready, the machine will beep to let you know that it’s dinner time! This incredibly useful rice cooker is absolutely essential for those who are too busy to stir and watch rice cook on a stovetop.
