While I admit that breakfast time with five small kids is rather rushed, it’s often around dinnertime that things get a little ‘heated’ at our house. After a long day this mama is pretty tired, I generally have a grumpy, hungry baby hanging off my leg and a table to clear and set, no wonder I struggle to keep an eye on all the pots and pans at the same time! Thankfully Décor is coming to the rescue of busy parents by taking the hassle out of your next rice dish with this clever unit:
Don’t worry about caked on pans and endless stirring, with the Décor Microsoft® Rice Cooker and Vegetable Steamer (RRP $13.99, 2.75L) your favourite rice will be cooked to perfection every single time.
Using the Décor Rice Cooker is so easy even grandparents, babysitters and sleep deprived parents can do it: Simply use the included measuring cup to determine the right amount of raw rice and boiling water and pop the cooker in your microwave. Seventeen minutes of cooking and five minutes of resting later your rice is ready to be served, that’s just enough time to whip up a nice sauce, fry your chicken and set the table.
With a generous 2.75 litre capacity the Décor Rice Cooker is big enough to make up to four cups of cooked rice, perfect for a small family or side dish. It comes complete with steam release vent lid, transparent measuring cup and white rice paddle for stirring and serving. And there are plenty of other handy Décor features too: it has cold touch handles, is BPA-free, dishwasher safe, freezer safe and of course Australian made.
While you can of course use your Rice Cooker to prepare ‘just’ rice, it is also great for cooking all-in-one meals. Yay for less dirty dishes afterwards! Add tasty vegetables, herbs, spices and/or garlic to your liking to create an entire meal in one single container, easy peasy. If you happen to have leftovers you can conveniently seal and store the closed Rice Cooker in the fridge and reheat it in the microwave later on.
Tuesday’s Rice Cooker dinner of chicken, cucumber and Mexican inspired rice was a big hit with the kids. With added tomato, kidney beans, coriander and a mix of spices it was a very versatile dish that covered all the food groups, and hardly any washing up to do!
