Rice is known around the world as a nutritious food. When rice is cooked correctly, it can be delicious, but rice can be undercooked or overcooked. Aroma rice cookers solve that problem by cooking all kinds of rice and automatically shutting off when the rice is ready. They are available in several sizes, so you can choose the one that best fits your needs.
Rinse one cup of rice lightly in a strainer for a minute or two. Do not overrinse to avoid losing too many nutrients from the rice.
Pour 1 cup of rice into inner pot of the Aroma rice cooker using the measuring cup that comes with the Aroma rice cooker. If it did not come with one, use a regular measuring cup but adjust the amount of rice to 3/4 cup instead of 1 cup.
Add water to the rice according to package directions. Some Aroma rice cookers have fill-level marks on the inside of the pot as a guide for food and water fill points. Add any chopped vegetables or spices desired.
Place the inner pot filled with the water and rice back into the rice cooker. Cover with the lid and turn the cooker on.
Leave the rice to cook. The Aroma rice cooker will stop when the rice is finished and switch to a warming mode. A light will come on to alert you that the cooker has switched to warming mode. Some models have a pop-up timer that indicates when the rice is finished.
Brown rice-the whole grain of rice, from which the germ and outer layers containing the bran have not been removed; unpolished rice.
It's not often that we consider it, but polished white rice is the nutritional equivalent of white bread: stripped of nutrient-bearing bran and enriched with artificial additives.
When the Industrial Revolution came about so did severe nutritional deficiencies associated with eating too much denuded rice, in no small part due to the invention of a machine that popularized "modern" starchy white rice. Like whole grain bread, however, brown rice is the more wholesome, healthful choice. The problem? Brown rice is time-consuming to cook on the range — even dangerous if, like me, you've forgotten it simmering there and nearly caught your kitchen on fire. That's why an electric rice cooker comes in handy — or in my case necessary for the health and safety of my household. The problem is, your basic electric rice cooker isn't conducive to successful results with brown rice.
These microprocessor-controlled "one-pot wonders" are becoming smarter and more versatile by the year.
So Aroma rice cooker is fit for brown rice.
