My basement storage room is work in progress. Everything has a home…theoretically. The problem is that some items have several homes. The floor is perhaps the worst home for any item. I can lose items in a sea of boxes and bags. I’m currently missing the orange juicer. Needed it Christmas morning. Search Christmas Eve. No luck. Still missing.
I did have one triumph today…the small appliances now have a dedicated shelf. For Christmas a few years ago, we received a Cuisinart Popcorn Popper. Love this appliance. Great for movie night. We all love popcorn. The popcorn is delish…not anything like movie popcorn of microwave popcorn.
I unexpectedly have one more appliance to add to the appliance shelf in the basement. A Cuisinart Rice Plus Multi-Cooker with Fuzzy Logic Technology. I was invited to the #bloggersbrunch hosted by ChildsPlayPR in New York City. Cuisinart, one of the brunch sponsors, gifted each blogger attendee with a rice cooker. So generous to give one to me and to one of my readers!
Now, a rice cooker was not something I had ever thought about getting. After using the rice cooker, I would highly recommend it. I cooked a batch of rice and so did my husband. He is a much better cook than I am, but our rice tasted the same. Score one for easy cooking!
The Cuisinart FRC-800 Rice Plus Multi-Cooker with Fuzzy Logic Technology is compact with a built in handle. I lack counter and cabinet space so I will be storing my rice cooker on the shelf in my basement as I do with other small appliances. The rice cooker is easy-to-use with set guidelines for each type of dish: rice, brown rice, rice pudding, etc.
The rice is placed in a removable bowl, which is dish washer safe. After cooking, I simply wiped down the outside and inside of the rice cooker — very little mess. The rice cooker sells for $149 on Cuisinart and $134.62 on amazon.
