Rice is a staple in the Asian diet and culture; it is an easy-to-cook and inexpensive grain that can be prepared efficiently on the commercial or domestic level with great success. Rice cookers are the preferred way to produce a quality batch of soft rice. Rice warmers are essential in every Asian kitchen, or anywhere rice is served in batches throughout the day. The rice can then be mixed with vegetables, meats and fish to create exquisite flavors.
Rice cookers are designed to easily prepare and heat rice to its desired consistency, from the sticky rice needed to make sushi to the hot rice needed for a pilaf. If you already have a method to getting your rice prepared, pick up a rice warmer to easily reheat rice that's already been cooked, or a cooker/warmer that can cook it once and reheat it when needed.
