Re: rice cookers

Yes, I have made mixed-grain pilaf in my aluminum rice cooker. I think
the trick is to use grains that take about the same amount of time:
brown rice, barley, red rices, wild rice, wheat berries.

My rice cooker problem: the rice (white or brown or mixed grains)
doesn't exactly burn, but a layer browns and sticks to the bottom, and I
have to scrape it out. It actually tastes good and is nice and crispy,
but I can't serve it with the rest of the rice or pilaf, and it's a fair
amount of work to get the pan clean. Any suggestions?
