    1. This is a very well researched book. It covers everything from the basic differences in various rice cookers to all those varieties of rice on the store shelves. I haven't yet cooked with this book as I'm waiting to see if a new rice cooker (which I've been begging for years for) magically appears on my counter in the next week or so. (If it doesn't I won't be disappointed and I'll work through these ideas with my vege/rice steamer). I wish I had this book when I had a basic on/off model as I le [...]

    2. I might have actually started this on the 22nd. Not sure. Anyway, this was a little disappointing. Mostly because the recipes are only for rice cookers of specific sizes, and there is no information about scaling down. The text implies that you shouldn't, and that makes me reluctant to experiment. (If your rice cooker isn't at least 4 cups, forget it. And many of these call for 6- or 10-cup machines.) There's a 2012 edition and I may check it out to see if it's been updated.

    3. NOTE: This is not actually a gluten-free cookbook. It covers all kinds of grains---many of which are gluten-free. We've used this book to make very good quinoa and amazing! polenta. The polenta! Ah! The polenta! Our rice cooker makes the creamiest polenta ever. If you have a good rice cooker and want to do more with it, this is the book for you. It's almost a textbook. Such a great resource.

    4. AMAZING. Everything I've made out of here has turned out awesome. I love it!

    5. Just okay for me wish more of the recipes were appealing to me.

    6. I recently bought a rice cooker and am trying to figure out how to use it. This book gives a nice overview of the many different types of cookers, what they can do, and how to make the most of them. Unfortunately, what I most want to do--make oatmeal on a timer--requires a fancier cooker with a "porridge" setting. I'd like to come back to this and try some recipes when I get a little more acquainted with actually making rice.

    7. This book has been a great success so far, for the most part. With the information in the book, I focused on jasmine brown rice, which is lighter than regular brown rice and also perfumes the whole house while it's cooking, just like white jasmine rice. I've also made Lemon Rice and Saffron Rice (but using veggie stock instead of water); both have been DELICIOUS. I would put that word in bigger caps if I could, or put flashing stars around it--they were that good. It's not hard to take the the r [...]

    8. I started looking out for rice cooker recipes and cookbooks when I bought (a way too expensive, I must add) Zojirushi induction rice cooker from Japan. Although there are a few out there, this book had the most number of positive reviews on so I chose it when I won a gift card in a contest from work. In a way, I am glad I didn't spend money on this but then I could have chosen another book I would've liked better. Yes, the book has a variety of recipes you can cook in your rice cooker but none [...]

    9. The book goes WAY beyond rice cooking - encompassing all grains, all legumes, and even some desserts. The book encourages you to think of your rice cooker more as a one-pot meal maker than a means to a meal. With clear instructions and information on machine settings, it is possible to prepare the entire meal from start to finish. I also like how many of the recipes have suggestions for slightly different spices and flavors at the end. Example: Couscous with mushrooms, couscous with dried fruit [...]

    10. I don't know if this is true of other editions, but for the kindle edition, recipes start out in the middle of pages and there are no pictures at all in the entire book, except for on the cover. I haven't tried any of the recipes yet, but as a reading experience, is has to be the least pleasant cookbook I have ever read. I guess it makes sense that it would be that way because you can change the size of the font in a kindle book, but when I look at a recipe book, I like to flip through the book [...]

    11. Some good recipes and tips for using rice cookers for more than rice. There are few pictures. This doesn't bother me. I know what rice looks like. I know what an onion or spices look like. I guess it freaks some people out not to have a big ol' glossy photo of every step in a recipe, though. I don't use it as much as I thought I would, but that is because many of the recipes for for fuzzy-logic cookers, which mine isn't. Since my Zoji rice cooker refuses to die (ten years and counting), I'll pro [...]

    12. Occasionally while decluttering the kitchen, I find myself wondering if I really need a rice cooker, at which point I flip through this book for inspiration. It's a fantastic rice cooker cookbook, and should really get 3.5 stars if that were allowed. It gets docked points because it doesn't have pictures, and because despite being otherwise extremely comprehensive, it doesn't address pasta in the rice cooker at all. It's also a bit too gourmet for me, though whether that's a pro or a con is real [...]

    13. OK, so I thought I was a culinary genius when I "discovered" you could cook quinoa in the rice cooker. "Wait until I tell the world!" I thought. Well who knew, FAR beyond rice and quinoa you can prepare entire MEALS in the rice cooker! Breakfast! Lunch! Dinner! Dessert! This is a great book. Once you read it, you think "Duh. Of course that all makes sense," but I'm telling you, no one I know knew you could do this. I am inspired : ) I almost think I could hit the road, in an Airstream, with just [...]

    14. What can you do with your Rice Cooker? Cook Rice of course, you can even steam vegetables when there is a need. Certainly a great way to enhance meals and help make cooking easier. It seems thought that this is only the beginning of what you can do This cookbook opens up a wider range of things that you can do. While some of the recipes are for rice in variations that are based on national dishes, you can also extend this to things like oatmeal and dim sum. A great book to open up the vistas of [...]

    15. I did learn one useful thing from this book: pilafs (which I love) can be finished in the rice cooker. A great thing to know when you have limited stove space or lots of competition for your attention while cooking. I may check out this book again to review the information on cooking other grains (like steel cut oats, another favorite) and even non-grain foods (vegetables in particular). Since I discovered Mark Bittman, I don't see a need to own this book - the recipes seem over-elaborate by com [...]

    16. This book does it all. I like the layout and I LOVE the fact that it has so much information on, well, Rice! For a beginner it is awesome to see all the info on types and classifications. Then to have it outline the science behind not only how the cooker's cook the rice, but how/why each different rice type needs different amounts of water or rinses etc Many great recipes that are clearly and easily explained. Definitely a must have!

    17. the actual rice cooker recipes are good, but there is a lot of filler- non-rice cooker recipes (I have a whole wall of books for that, mmmk) and quite a few that are basically "make rice in rice cooker, do all this other stuff on the stovetop, then mix it all together", which isn't really what I was after.But it's good for the basics of making different types of basic dishes in your rice cooker.

    18. Put on pause 25 November - haven't looked at it in a couple of weeks but do need to get back to it.Excellent book if you have or are considering a rice cooker. If you haven't purchased one yet read all the stuff before the recipe sections start and then look at the steaming chapters [3-4 includes veggies and desserts] as fancy fuzzy logic ones do not steam (mostly) and that may drive your decision.

    19. I LOVE this book! I bought it just after my husband I had purchase a new - and very sexy - rice cooker. (Based on the Asian model, but made in Austria.)I always have used my rice cooker for making more dishes than just steaming rice and this book takes it even further for me, with recipe for dishes with bulgur, polenta, porridges.Fabulous!

    20. I've tried a few of the recipes and I liked them a lot. This book is MUCH better than the slow cooker book by the same authors. But I might be biased because I prefer my rice cooker and think it's superior.

    21. I purchased a rice cooker and needed a cookbook. This book is more than just recipes, it explains the differences and how to use a large variety of rices. Also talks about the history of the rice cooker. Being new to the use of a rice cooker this information was very helpful.

    22. Beth Hensperger is one of my favorite cookbook authors, and my children love rice dishes. So this one was a no brainer. One of the best ideas from this book was making different breakfast grain dishes in the rice cooker.

    23. I was expecting more full meals. When I finally got to that section, I was surprised at how time-intensive some of theme were. If you only have a rice cooker, I'm sure they'd be fine, but if you have the option of using a stove or oven, I'd make those dishes the normal way.

    24. I love my rice cooker and really had hoped that this would be something I could use frequently. I bought this right after I got the rice cooker and just really didn't think that it gave the basics well. I also didn't find that the recipes were well-suited to my family's tastes.

    25. quite a few really good recipes, but not one single picture to be found. the pages in the book were not a good quality for a cookbook. they had a texture that would stain easily. I prefer a glossy page in a cookbook.

    28. I've read the book but haven't tried any of the recipes yet so I'm going to hold off rating until I have some practical experience with the recipes under my belt. I like what I've seen, though!

    30. This book was just a lot more basic than I had hoped. There aren't photos of the recipies. It just isn't a well written cookbook.
