My Chinese grandmother served rice with just about every meal. She used a simple, one-button rice cooker, measured the water using her finger, and it was perfect every time. At least that’s how I remember it.
If you didn’t have anyone to pass down their secret rice technique, you’re in luck! Rice cookers have come a long way since then and the Japanese models are the cream of the crop. Through hours of research and my ingrained love of rice (no pun intended), I’ve chosen three of the best Japanese rice cookers that will suit any home cook.
