Tired of cooking rice on the stove top to then find that it's burnt? If you’re not into burnt rice crackers, this nonstick Aroma digital rice cooker effortlessly makes 2 to 8 cups of white or brown rice and doubles as a warmer, so you won’t have to microwave it after. And it won’t stick!
If you’re renting your first apartment and first, last, and security deposit fees got you good, this Oster 6-cup rice cooker is under $30! It cooks rice with just one button and also has an auto shut-off feature to keep your rice nice and warm until you’re ready to actually eat. We love that this cooker is also a veggie and fish steamer thanks to the included steaming basket. Not only will you get a whole meal from this, you’ll also have an easy cleanup, thanks to the nonstick pot.
Counter space in your kitchen is precious, and a lot of the time, there isn’t enough of it. This mini rice cooker is big enough to cook 3 cups of rice, but is small enough to sit on your countertop without hogging up real estate. It has a clear lid that lets you keep an eye on the rice, has a single switch for easy cooking, and can keep rice warm up to 5 hours.
Best Large Capacity
If your house is the designated dinner spot for your friends and family, this Aroma rice cooker makes up to 20 cups, so you won’t have to skimp when extra guests show up! This rice cooker is also handy if you’re rushing to make dinner. Just hit the Quick Rice button and it’ll cook rice in half the time! While some of our other choices come with steaming capabilities, this Aroma rice cooker is also a slow cooker, which is great for making risotto or chili.
Best for Versatility
This rice cooker is made of stainless steel and will cook rice efficiently and evenly with its three-ply, even-heat-distribution bottom. Users love that this rice cooker is six kitchen appliances in one. Yes, it’s a rice cooker, but it is also a pressure cooker, a veggie steamer, a slow cooker, a warmer, and it can sauté! This comes in handy when you have absolutely no time to prepare a whole, nutritious meal … but you have enough time to dump all the ingredients in. Once everything is inside, hit the appropriate control button and go about your business, because it'll cook the whole meal for you.
