Amazon.com is my friend :o)

I've been wanting a rice cooker for quite some time and I was really hoping for a 3-cup Hello Kitty one that I found on eBay which ended up going for way too much money. Anyhow, after some shopping around, I found one on Amazon that I like.

On it's way to me is the Zojirushi NS-KCC05 Micom Programmable 3-Cup Rice Cooker & Warmer (which in reality is only about a 2 1/4 cup rice cooker, but that's fine by me!). It's got great reviews and a not too bad price, so I figured I'd go with it. After I ordered it I sorta wish I'd have gone with the the 5-cup model, but what's done is done! If I find a real NEED for one later down the line I'll get one. This one should do just fine for now.

Along with the machine, I got a cook book: The Ultimate Rice Cooker Cookbook: 250 No-Fail Recipes for Pilafs, Risottos, Polenta, Chilis, Soups, Porridges, Puddings and More, from Start to Finish in Your Rice Cooker

I'm actually really anxious to make some sweet rice since I've got 2 fairly large bags of it at home. I can hardly wait for it to arrive!!

I don't mind at all if you add me. I'll add you as well and I should be posting more soon. Been lazy, hehehee

Thanks! I really to LOVE the rice cooker... I've used it a bunch since I got it :o)

I'm slowly transitioning to being vegan. It's not been easy (especially since I'm LAZY!).
