Rice Cookers Are Great Gifts for High School Graduates
Rice cookers make an excellent gift for high school graduates from the class of 2014 headed off to University in the fall or simply moving out on their own for the first time. Even those who don’t have a lot of cooking experience or talent in the kitchen can easily use a rice cooker and will appreciate the flexibility a rice cooker offers. A rice cooker is not only just for cooking rice, a rice cooker can make pretty much whatever you want it to, given a little creativity. Our rice cooker recipe for macaroni and cheese is a particular favorite among college students. You can also make banana bread, soups, nacho dips and even baby back ribs in a rice cooker.
Being able to cook some of their favorite foods can be one way college freshmen can more easily adjust to college life. Not being completely reliant on college cafeteria food can also allow them to make more healthy eating choices.
