If you are looking for new and improved gadgets for your kitchen, then these rice cooker reviews may help you make the decision easier for you.

Aroma 8-Cup (Cooked) Digital Rice Cooker

The Aroma 8-Cup Digital Rice Cooker is a fairly basic steamer. It’s uncomplicated and easy to use: simply add rice and water, press the button for white or brown rice, and leave the machine to do its work. You could set cooking times yourself, but most users find that the presets work well. As the unit’s heat comes from the bottom, it does no harm to stir the rice occasionally to ensure even cooking, but that’s about your only involvement. You can also use the Aroma to steam other food items; there is a separate button for this. The manufacturer says it’s great for soups, chili, and jambalaya. One customer even poached fruit in wine. A few owners complained that the Aroma lid doesn’t seal very well and that hot liquid spits out occasionally, but many other users rated this machine highly, so it’s possible that the faulty lid was part of a particular batch.

Hamilton Beach Digital Simplicity

Like the Aroma, the Hamilton Beach Digital Simplicity Rice Cooker is a combination rice cooker/steamer. Its range of preset functions is similar to that of the Aroma, giving you what the manufacturer calls “one-touch cooking.” Also like the Aroma, the Hamilton Beach features a separate tray so you can simultaneously steam vegetables and cook rice. There’s also a separate steam option and a boil/simmer sensor that will automatically turn the machine down to simmer for the duration you choose.

Shopping for Leggings

Black leggings cause much controversy among fashion designers and fashion gurus! Some embrace the great advantages black leggings offer while other say they should only ever be worn in a gym!


* Great for women who want to wear short dresses and skirts and yet hate showing their legs! Ideal for wearing to create a chic and trendy look for younger women as they can be teamed with just about anything! Perfect for keeping your legs warm in the autumn and winter, particularly when worn with knee or ankle boots.

Although black seems to be the most preferred color a wide choice in vibrant and muted tones are also widely available in the high street or online in both plain and patterned styles. White is the ideal color choice for summer. Different lengths are available which is great news for women who don’t have long legs! The shorter leggings which finish just below the knee, in a similar style to pedal pushers are perfect for the summer if you like wearing shorts but don’t want to expose your flesh!
