Very interesting cookbook and semi memoire,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Pot and How to Use It: The Mystery and Romance of the Rice Cooker (Paperback)
This is not your usual cookbook.
First, it lets you know that you really can cook other foods besides rice in the most basic (or fancy) rice cooker.
Second, it's not an extensive recipe book. There are some recipes, yes, but the book encourages you to try your own ideas.
Third, the text is lively, witty, and entertaining. Roger Ebert's voice is not stilled.
Fourth, buy it just to read it as a book, but you'll probably end up also buying a rice cooker or using the one you have for more foods than rice.
