I was sent a review unit of the Rosewill RHRC-13001 5.5 Cup Rice Cooker. I tested the unit provided and you’ll never believe this. It made rice and it made it well.
You’re stunned, just stunned, I can tell.
All silliness aside, the Rosewill Rice Cooker works great. We use a rice cooker several times a week and if we didn’t have four growing children, we would have kept the review unit as our current rice cooker is reaching the end of its life. Since the cooker doesn’t meet our family’s needs I gave the review unit to a coworker friend of mine with no children and he is very happy with it.
My coworker and I tend to geek out over food and cooking. He’s currently researching how to make congee, a Chinese porridge made from rice which brings me to my next point. The Rosewill Rice Cooker should have been named something more encompassing than simply a rice cooker. The rice cooker can also be used to make soup, quinoa, brown rice, and according to Lifehacker banana bread. It’s not the dreaded unitasker —shout out to my fellow Alton Brown fans. I may have been binging on Good Eats, which is available on Netflix.
I’m sure you’ve heard of the InstantPot that has been exploding in popularity on the web, unlike Samsung products which are just exploding. If you aren’t interested in the electric pressure cooking aspect of the InstantPot and you don’t have a herd of people to cook for, this is a completely reasonable alternative product.
It’s also kind of cute which would make leaving it out on the counter for frequent use, not too big of a deal, but if you don’t have the counter space to spare, it has a handle which makes putting it away easy-peasy.
It’s currently 40 dollars off of its usual price. I’m working on putting together a list of gift ideas for the cooks in your life. I just wanted to give you guys a heads up on the deal before I get around to finishing this list.
