What to consider when buying a cooker or a steamer
There’s no better way to prepare rice than in a dedicated rice cooker, and there’s nothing quite like a slow-cooked chili con carne made in a crockpot. Steaming, slow cooking and pressure cooking are the kinds of techniques that you can only really achieve with the dedicated tools, and thankfully you can get a good deal of them quite cheap. Even when the bigger brands aren’t on sale, their competitors offer some succulent specials when it comes to price. But if this kind of cuisine has you glued to the kitchen, then maybe it’s worth getting a more premium multi-cooker that allows you to apply a combination of techniques —steaming, slow cooking or pressure cooking — with a single device.
