What the frick is the point of a rice cooker?

What the frick is the point of a rice cooker? I could never fathom purchasing another kitchen related machine, having to store it, clean it, etc when cooking rice in a pot is pretty much the most basic "cooking" you could ever do. Why?

    It's the same as what the fricks the point of a toaster. If you make toast regularly it's nicer to have a machine that just does it without faff so you can focus on other stuff.

        They're overgrown children. They eat rice rarely, so therefore they can't fathom that there are people in the world that eat rice often, much less what such people would have in their kitchens.

    To cook rice, moron.
    It's not a necessity, but it's convenient if you eat a lot of rice since it doesn't take up a burner and you don't have to think about it.

        One of the nice features of some rice cookers is that they have a keep warm function. It keeps the rice ABOVE pasteurization temps, so it is safe to eat. With a good cooker the rice will be enjoyable for 24ish hrs, and edible for around 48.

        You can do oats on a timer so you have hot oats ready in the morning, cakes, claypot style dishes, some do yogurt, cakes, quinoa is excellent in a rice cooker, you can heat up corn tortillas, heat up any food, keep soup hot and fresh, etc.

        Lots of nice uses for one.

    Yep. It's a unitasker and frankly I've not been particularly plussed with the rice cookers my family has owned in the past. Always burning the bottom of the rice, always just about boiling over. If you're a bingbong and eat literally nothing else then fine, buy a rice cooker instead of a kitchen, but for the rest of us? Fricking waste.

    Don't need to watch the pot when making rice (just listen for the tone), and hot steel cut oats in the morning that finish when I get up. It is without a doubt a "kitchen gadget" (aka unnecessary coonsoomer good), but, "Eh ¯_(ツ)_/¯". Now waffle irons and air fryers on the other hand...

    For the 100th time, it's for people who eat a lot of rice and want a cheap (they're supposed to be cheap, japs just like making expensive shit for no reason) and convenient way to cook it. You wash the rice, put it in the cooker, add water, set it and forget it. You don't have to sit there and watch another pot on the stove or set another timer, once the rice is cooked it'll automatically go into 'keep warm' mode.

    >having to store it
    If you live in a shoebox and can't afford the tiny amount of space that a rice cooker takes up, that's on you. You've made the terrible life choices that got you to that point. Don't blame the rice cooker.

    >clean it
    Once you're done, you simply leave the cooking vessel on your counter for an hour or two, let the risidual rice flakes harden up and loosen up, take a dish rag and wipe it up, then throw it into the dishwasher. Guess what dipshit, if you cook rice on the stove, you gotta clean that too, so what the frick are you even complaing about. Either way you're cleaning something.

    >etc when cooking rice in a pot is pretty much the most basic "cooking" you could ever do. Why?
    Holy shit bro just say it: you heckin hate chinks/ricels/bugmen/whatever new term you've invented for us. This is Culinaly, nobody cares bro, you don't have to do this song and dance where you take a shit on something as simple as a rice cooker because you hate Asians so much. Just go to /misc/ or Culinaly and make your customary race bait thread and get it over with. Leave Culinaly the frick alone, I just wanna talk about food and cooking, is that too much to ask?

    I got a shitty one with just an on switch at a casino. Its pretty fricking cool. You don't have to have the water ratio as perfect as stove top and heat isn't a concern. It just kicks to warm by some magic and can be left in there for hours and hours without getting fricked up or dried out. Idk how it works so well, being bare bones cheapie. Its cool tho. I bet the Japanese ones that talk to you super are cool, but I'll never pay that much, unless I hit the lotto.

    I frequently steam food in my rice cooker, like veggies or potstickers/dumplings.
    Ricecooker is good for any porridgey grain that has a long cook time. I load it with steel cut oats the night before and use the timer function so that it's done when I wake up like a coffee maker. One time I made the funny big fluffy fwa fwa japanese pancake in the rice cooker.

    What I don't like about zojirushi is that they are nonstick coating dependent and it does require extra care to clean and not abuse, so really not a tool allowed around women. Which is right fricked up for a kitchen appliance.
