Microwave Rice Cooker

I’ve seen a lot of microwave rice cookers.  They can be especially helpful for cooking rice when you’re short on time (as any person is these days.)

Here are some of the best microwave rice cookers:

Progressive Microwave Rice Cooker Set This is a simple set that’s easy to use. It gets the highest reviews on Amazon and you can buy it for only about $15.

The Progressive Microwave Rice Cooker and Pasta Set is another top set on Amazon. This set allows you to make pasta or rice in any microwave. It also costs about $15 and is eligible for free shipping on Amazon.

The Fox Run 3 in 1 Microwave Rice Cooker with Pasta and Popcorn maker is another top choice for rice fanatics. It costs $12 and can be used to make rice, pasta or popcorn. The best price I’ve seen is here with free shipping.

Nordic Ware 8 Microwave Cup Rice Cooker is another good choice from a reputable brand for only $10 with free shipping from Amazon.

Microwave rice cookers are a great choice for people living in studio apartments and they are also good for high school graduation presents for presents for those going to college. (Any kid in college will love one of these!) It’s also great for busy parents or people who are getting their kitchens redone and remodeled and can’t use their stove.

But, if you do have time to cook rice on the stove I would recommend getting a stainless steel rice cooker like this one. The Zojirushi Micom 3-Cup Rice Cooker and Warmer, Stainless Steel has over 150 reviews on Amazon and is consistently rated one of the best rice cookers. With plastic there are sometimes concerns about plastic getting warm and leaching into food. If you are concerned about this you might want to get a regular old rice maker like the Zojirushi Rice Cooker. It is amazing (just read the reviews.) Then you won’t have to worry about plastic melting in your rice (though it shouldn’t happen with microwave rice cookers.
