Rice cookers, like many of the small electrical kitchen appliances today, no longer just cook the rice. Today’s rice cooker can steam vegetables, cook soup or stews, and cook the rice as well. To begin with, you can cook an egg on top of the rice just before the rice is finished cooking. You have to watch the egg so that it can come out the way you like your egg cooked. Once you have timed it to the way you like it, the next time it is easier to make.
