I probably use my rice cooker more than the average person. I live in the
basement of a house, and it's easier for me to cook down there than to be
running up and down the stairs.
My rice cooker came with two stacking veggie holders for steaming veggies.
I cook all my grains in there.
I even boil beets and other veggies in there.
My son makes his Macaroni and chreese in there, so you can boil pasta too.
