My Rolls Royce
No it's not my new car but my new amazing rice cooker.
I have had rice cookers for a long time. My first one was offered by Gentiane when I moved to Paris. It was a nice one, classic Chinese style (I mean a round one with a top like a lid). I used it all the time.
Then ten years ago, during a stay in Tokyo I decided to buy a Japanese style one. I went to Bic Camera, the temple of hi-tech, cooking and toys. I spend a lot of time to choose it. There were so many kinds. I chose a quite small one (3 cups), very simple, white. Back in France I was helped by Japanese friends to understand how it works. And I also bought a really big adapter to use it with french electricity damned 220V vs 110V.
Last month, when I moved to my new apartment, I left it in my old appartement and decided to find a new one which doesn't need the adapter anymore. And because in my kitchen I have a lot of black stuff, I was looking for a black one.
I found it. French one, bigger (5 cups) than I wanted but so nice!
And now I can cook almost everything with it (rice, seeds, lentils, pastas, even yogurt, cream and more). I love it.
