There are many cookers to choose from when putting together your full kitchen cooking repertoire. Multifunction cookers and dedicated cookers offer cooking functionality and subtleties that create a wide variety of well-prepared entrees. Steam cookers and pressure cookers are used to create unique heating capacities in cooking rice, meats and vegetables. Dedicated rice cookers are ideal for cooking the many types of rice often specified in Asian and Indian cooking recipes. Slow cookers provide slow, controlled temperature cooking that yields great meals in a range of 3 hours to 20 hours. Casserole pots and meat/vegetable cookers offer additional functionality.
