Rice cooker

I've been thinking about getting a rice cooker, partially 'cause it seems cool, partially because my girlfriend really likes rice, partially because it seems like rice can be a fairly healthy staple.

Eventually I stumbled across the Zojirushi NH-VBC18. Not only does it offer the ability to program rice (or porridge) to be done at a specific time, it also has a multitude of modes for cooking brown rice. (which is less common among rice cookers).

And it uses magnetic induction to cook with, which is cool. (and probably generates less heat for ones apartment too).

I gave in to the consumerism and ordered it. Here's to hoping I can use it to prepare a swath of healthy lunches and dinners.
