The book has a great variety of recipes, from desserts to bean soups. There are plenty that don't involve rice. So far I have used this to cook some bean dishes, make some seasoned rice recipes, and make rice pudding. I really loved the rice pudding. It was a perfect texture and consistency.
My Sanyo rice cooker also has a steaming tray (most fuzzy logics don't) so that wouldn't prevent me from the steaming recipes unless they require both cooking and steaming at the same time (which some recipes do). Most of the recipes seem to be compatible with both fuzzy logic and an on/off rice cookers.
My only complaint would be that a lot of the recipes are rather complex, not necessarily in the cooking steps, but more the ingredient list. Part of me was hoping for this great recipe book that would allow me to streamline my life with this whole quiver of recipes where you just throw a bunch of simple ingredients into a pot, press a button, and viola. That part of me was slightly disappointed. But the other part, that just wanted some great ways to use my rice cooker to cook more than just rice, was not.
This is a great book, and I highly recommend it. Let me know if you have any questions on the book or are wondering if a certain type of recipe is in there, and I can check it out. Hope this review was helpful, now buy this book and start cooking!
Update: I've tried the Indian rice and lentil recipe and love it. I did change it up a little like using ginger powder instead of fresh ginger and omitted a few things like the mixed vegetables, but it worked and I came out with a dish that everyone loved. We did sweat a little from the spice and crushed red pepper, but it was a good sweat! She recommends the quicker cooking moong daal for the lentils but I used a regular yellow split pea lentil which will require probably a good ten minutes of boiling before adding to the rice cooker because they were a little firm but no one complained about it - I just noticed it for myself that I like a softer daal (lentil). Next time, I'm going to visit our local India Bazaar and get some moong daal and try it the way she recommends so I can cut out the boiling time. Also, I wanted to mention that there is a good sixty pages of explaining the history of and how to use the rice cooker and the different types. Also, each food category in the book gives a lot of good tips so you can create your own recipes. I especially enjoyed reading about how the Indians use their rice cookers with three baskets to create a full meal and how she gives tips to make full meals. I love to simplify making meals. I'm so excited to try more recipes and get creative with my rice cooker!
