The Cheapest Rice Cookers
Brand new rice cookers for less than $15? Yes, it’s true. And, no, these are not factory rejects, refurbished models or anything like that. Brand spanking new rice cookers all in their original packaging.
A small disclaimer however before we get going – we are not necessarily recommending that you purchase one of these rice cookers. We haven’t had a chance to use them and, in a couple cases, aren’t even familiar with the brands. Normally we would never bring a product to your attention unless we could recommend them to you with confidence. However, the incredibly low cost of these cookers is amazing. We thought some of you might think so too.
All of these rice steamers are basic models, no fancy porridge settings or tofu making features or anything like that. But for less than $15 you can’t really expect a rice cooker that’s going to wake you up in the morning with a fresh loaf of bread. But, if you can get a good basic rice cooker that gives solid performance for that price, it seems like a true bargain. Especially if you just happen to need a spare cooker around and don’t plan on using it all that often or are going to demand too much from it. Maybe you’d like a rice cooker to put in the RV or the summer cottage. It might be nice just to throw one in the trunk of your car and do a little cheap cooking in a hotel room while you’re on the road.
So, here they are with the most expensive of the batch first. Surely you want to splurge an extra $1.05 to say that you bought the most expensive of the cheapest rice cookers?
