For those of you that have stand alone rice cookers, have any of you used it for making other things?

You can cook almost any food in there. Makes the best ribs in just one hour, can also make macaroni and cheese, from scratch, in just about 25 minutes. Also can make chili, rice pudding, etc in there. Plus steam vegetables.......

Curious to what others have made in there.

We have both a crockpot and a ricecooker - both the same size. Other than the fact that the rice cooker is metal inside and the crockpot ceramic - what is the difference between the two?

I'd like to hear if others have recipes. My husband is Asian and he loves his rice!

Yes Suzanne...would love to see some of your recipes. Have a stand alone rice cooker that is woefully underused. Mac & cheese sounds esp good! thx

For the ribs, I use:

1 can of diet Coke with Splenda

I can of Swanson's Chicken soup

1/2 cup of barbecue sauce

1 tablespoon of a dry rub for ribs

Put the ribs in the rice cooker, pour the above over it, and let cook for one hour. That is it. The meat just melts in your mouth.

There is actually a cook book out with 250 recipes for making things in your rice cooker, and none of them are rice.

I got most of my recipes from Wolfgang Puck's book. The rib one is one that I came up with since I do not drink beer and had none in the house. Have made them four times already and they are wonderful.

Rice cookers cook at a higher temperature than a slow cooker, plus they steam.

The mac and cheese recipe from wolfgang Puck book takes just 25 minutes, and you do not need to drain anything. Add in dry noodles, cheese, broth, and cream.....wait to cycle thru for 25 minutes and it is wonderful.

My rice cooker is so small that I don't think ribs would fit, but it sounds great!! I use mine not only for rice, but it works great to steam veggies!!
