Rice is a staple in many diets across the globe. Cooking rice is fast and easy in an electric rice cooker. These electric rice cookers use steam to cook rice. The cooker can be programmed to make rice that's ready when the rest of a meal is served. The electric rice cookers usually make a beeping noise when the rice is finished. All that's needed besides the rice and the cooker is water.
