Re: rice cookers and brown rice/grains


I don't have a Japanese rice cooker.  I have an Oster veggie
steamer/rice cooker.  Is this what you are describing?  It has two see
through plastic baskets that stack on top of each other and they go on a
base that has a timer.  I fill the base with water, set the basket or
baskets on the base (with food in them of course) and start the timer.
It has a separate plastic bowl that I can put in the basket, fill with
brown rice and water, and steam it in 50 minutes.

I have been wondering if anyone has tried cooking any grain besides rice
in one of these.  I doubt beans would work--anyone know?  It would be
nice to get some more use out of it.
