Cooking rice can be a little tricky, especially with larger quantities. Rice cookers simplify the whole process for great results every time.

The ASDA Rice Cooker allows you to cook rice and rice pudding or porridge. The toughened glass lid minimises heat loss and the cook and keep warm function will keep the rice warm without further cooking. There's no fear of burning your hands with the cool-touch handles and you can serve straight from the table thanks to the removable non-stick bowl, making it a simple and easy journey from cooker to plate

Saucepan ftw

Thought I'd start it off.

Well worth spending money on if you eat rice frequently

You can wash your rice before cooking at the same time then

Why? What are the advantages over boiling in a pan?

Cooking rice is soooo easy. Two measures of water to one measure of rice, cover and allow to simmer until the water is just gone.....perfect (you don't even have to stir it)

I've never understood why every household doesn't have one. Rice cookers are brilliant! For a tenner you can't go wrong....Ikea used to do one at a similar price.

Mine has a 'keep warm' function that means I can start cooking and not worry that the rice isn't cooked/is overcooked. Also means an extra space on the hob if you're cooking lots of other things!

Invaluable bit of kit! We eat rice at least twice a week and these are a lifesaver, as never ever got it right before.

"Just right" every time and you don't have to keep an eye on it (it stays warm) though I wouldn't recommend leaving it for too long. We eat rice almost daily here though so it's a no-brainer for us. Some of them even come with steam baskets. I've made congee in mine as well which is nice and easy

Yes, the advantage is perfect rice every time - and you don't have to watch it. Just fire it up, and go do something else - come back and you have nice rice waiting for you. My recipe for long-grain easy-cook rice is 1 cup rice to 1.5 cups water. I add a bit of olive oil and/or butter and a dash of salt too.

Yea but when I use the warm function on mine the rice becomes condenced and takes on the shape of the pan. To be honest I have seen much better results on the hob with a covered lid and a drop of oil.

Does this work out cheaper in terms of 'energy' than:
A) Boiling the kettle, then putting the hob on to boil the rice.
B) Boil the water in the hob, then put the rice?

Is this better than my HD Radeon 6870?

I just bought one. Good reviews, £12.95 delivered and 350 to 400w (less than my present method of microwave steamer @ 700w for 9 mins) Thx SKNIGHT

This is easier than boiling in a saucepan..not having to watch, nothing to drain , put it on with a timer to come home to freshly made rice... but a few points to note:

1. The asda one is not well made. I had to return 3 in the space of a couple of months as they just stopped powering up. I thought my power socket was the issue causing some sort of surge or short circuit but then i got a philips one which has been going just fine.

2. Its hard to find an alternative one that is this small. I found one at john lewis but it was £30 i think.

3. You cant get rid of the starch if you use a rice cooker. Boiling in a pan and draining out the excess water is probably healthier for you.

4. Avoid the keep warm function as it will often cause your rice to stick to the bottom. Even if it will be removable easily, the rice will take the shape of the container and will not all be the soft fluffy kind you hoped for.

5. Feel free to add other items to the rice before cooking. Eg curry leaves, cloves, cardamom, fried onions, peas, roasted cumin seeds. Your whole house will smell of awesomely fragrant rice.
