Rice Steamer. Worth buying?

blackpointyboots | Jul 10, 2007 08:19 PM

I have been looking at electric rice steamers.

I want to make rice more often but frequently I don't get home early enough to mess with cooking rice ahead of a meal. I make brown rice more than white rice, is there an issue with making this in a steamer? Can other things like lentils and yellow peas be cooked in these?

Some of the models I looked at had timers and hold settings. Do these produce a decent product?

The big question, if you have one do you use it all the time or did it become a doorstop?
