What would she like best as her next kitchen appliance?

I routinely give a large seasonal gift to my employee, a brilliant young woman who recently got married and also scored a wedding gift from me. She and her new husband love making things, from cocktails to meals. I bought her an excellent Zojirushi fuzzy logic rice cooker last year, and a Vitamix blender as the wedding gift. They use both all the time and seem thrilled. So, what next? [more inside]

What is the best, most versatile rice cooker?

I am a college student looking to purchase a quality rice cooker for everyday use to prepare both delicious rice and other one-pot meals. Does anyone have any specific brands or models they would recommend? My absolute upper limit is $150, but a model under $100 would be great.

How can I use my new Korean 220v rice cooker in the US?

I just returned (to the US) from a trip to Korea, where I was given a really nice gift: a fancy Cuckoo Induction Heating Korean rice cooker just like this one. That page is in Korean, but the technical details are universal: 220V/60Hz, 3.7A, 824W. What jiggery-pokery will I need to do to make awesome rice here in the States? [more inside]

Under Pressure! (Exactly how much pressure?)

We have a Cuckoo "pressure rice cooker" (model HD1054F) that my husband and I got for our wedding. It makes great rice! Now, I want to explore its actual "pressure cooking" side. But it doesn't seem to cook at as high a pressure as a standard pressure cooker. How do I determine the pressure (in psi) that it uses? [more inside]

Hyper rice cooker help

I got a rice cooker, and was looking forward to cooking lots of interesting rice-based dishes in it. All the recipes I've found online, however, say things like "Cook for 40 minutes" or "Add chicken 15 minutes before the end of cooking". My rice cooker, however, manages to cook a serve of rice in about 10 minutes flat. How do I use this apparently turbo rice cooker to cook these sorts of recipes? The rice cooker has a "risotto" setting that obviously takes longer, but I'm worried that will ruin ordinary jasmine rice.

Rice aficionados, point me in the right direction!

Is there such a thing as a decent rice cooker for $50-75? Where should I get it? Do cookers with "brown rice" settings work any better for brown rice? Anything else I should know? [more inside]

My rice cooker keeps infecting my rice!

Got rice [cooker]?

I wish to end my barbaric method of cooking rice in a saucepan. I'm stuck between the Zojirushi NS-LAC05, NS-ZCC10, and NS-TGC10. I've checked the product comparisons. Will I miss not having "Extended Keep Warm" - and how is that different from the already-present "Automatic Keep Warm" anyway? What in the world is this "Rinse-Free" and "Sweet Rice" settings, and will I miss them? Is "Cake" decent? Why is picking a rice cooker so complicated? [more inside]

How on earth does the "high speed white rice" setting on a rice cooker work? I know the basics of rice-cookery (thermostat attached to heating element checks for the presence of liquid water, as evidenced by temperature staying at the boiling point) but I have no idea how it manages to optionally cook short-grain white rice in half the time it usually takes.
