Default Rice Cooker

So I went looking for one today and I found a few. One was $20 and basic , and another was about $50 and had more options. The one option I was wondering about / liking was the white rice / brown rice selection.

Do you think it would be worth the extra $30 to have that option ? I haven't picked one up yet . Since I do cook brown rice more I'm thinking I will pick up that one , but I'm just not sure if it will make a difference in a rice cooker.

Just wanting some input.

Why ?

How much difference would it really make ?

Can't I just add more water when cooking brown rice ?

Hahaha. The inside of my rice cooker pot has a measure for "Rice", and another on the opposite side for "Brown Rice". The difference is the water level. It works equally well for basmati, brown, white, etc. I think I paid...$20. It's a Black & Decker I think.

Cool. It changes from "Cook" to "Warm" automatically when it's finished. My only gripe is that if you don't stir it or remove the pot from the cooker as soon as it's done, it will burn the rice on the bottom IME. The non-stick pot makes clean up super easy.

I'm on board for the $20 one. I hadn't even thought of buying one!!! I haven't been eating rice recently due to it being a pain to cook. :/

I hear ya. I cook enough for a couple of days at a time. It's well worth it. If you start eating rice more often then it will pay for the cooker in no time. Rice is one of the cheapest carb sources there is. I like the basmati blends. Some have a decent GI value. It breaks up the monotony of having brown rice several times a week.

Hmm, but can it cook beans, lentils, and garbanzos? I'll flip out if it can.
