Have you heard about the healthy benefits of rice? A few of you may remember a posting here on One 2 Try, from a few months back, about Lotus Foods rice. The rice assortment they offer is amazing. One of my favorite rice tastes was the black rice known as Forbidden Rice. I knew then it was something I had to try because of its unique qualities. According to Health dot com - a recent article asks the question - Is black rice the new brown? The Forbidden Rice from Lotus Foods is an exquisite black rice.
Lotus Foods understands rice and is bringing us many different types of rice varieties. Read my full rice review here. It is a natural progression for Lotus Foods to offer their very own Rice Cooker and Steamer.
The Lotus Foods Rice Cooker and Steamer could be your new favorite kitchen gadget. What makes this cooker so special is the Stainless Steel inner cooking pot. Something I was not aware of is the danger of non-stick coatings. Bits of the coating can flake during cooking. Have you noticed some of your cooking pans with non-stick coating missing? Think about it. Where does the coating go?
The Benefits of Stainless Steel
•The ONLY non-reactive metal used in cookware.
•Preserves flavor and nutritional value.
•Does not absorb unusual odors or flavors.
•Will not react with acidic foods or sauces.
•Will not rust, tarnish, peel, or pit, ever!
•Cooking pot & steaming tray are 100% recyclable.
•Simple 1-2-3 cooking with fast, easy clean up!
I love the looks of the Lotus Foods Rice Cooker and Steamer. The unit looks sharp in its cool touch white base with the sparkling stainless steel cooking pot insert. It is very easy to set up and use. Simply measure your rice, add your water and start the cooking. I like my rice a little more tender so I added slightly additional water and cooking time as suggested. My provided Forbidden Rice came out perfect. I also made a white jasmine rice and was so pleased with the results. It cooks thoroughly and quietly. Once the cooking process has completed, the unit automatically switches to keep your rice warm. My rice stayed light and fluffy.
You can also use the Lotus Foods Rice Cooker as a Steamer with the provided steaming tray. It is great for vegetables, or fish. It truly is a remarkable cooking tool.
You can purchase the Lotus Foods Rice Cooker and Steamer directly online. While you are visiting Lotus Foods, be sure to explore the world of rice in the incredible rice varieties. Try something new!
