A good rice cooker is a great way to cut the time it takes to make dinner. I put rice, polenta, oatmeal, quinoa, etc. on to cook in the morning and my rice cooker keeps it perfectly warm until we’re ready for it at dinner time. This allows me to make longer-cooking whole grains without delaying dinner time
