KitchenAid just announced their latest appliance and it's genius.


My family ran out of bags of rice so quickly that I stopped buying this pantry staple at regular supermarkets long ago. Now I'm picking up 25-pound sacks of jasmine rice from my local H-Mart and storing them in a five-gallon bucket in my garage.

With this serious rice habit I have learned after much trial and error to cook it perfectly on the stove. However, as a food editor, I know that rice causes a lot of trouble for many home cooks. The wrong ratio of water to grain and heat can cause rice dishes to be sticky or undercooked and crispy. Either result is disappointing, especially at the end of a long day when all you want to do is sit down and eat dinner.

What if you could skip the trial and error and achieve perfect, fluffy rice bowls every single time? This is the appeal of the new appliances KitchenAid launched today: Cereal and rice cooker. This smart appliance promises to “completely cook grains, rice and beans without the guesswork of measuring and monitoring.”

The best part? You don't need to measure or time anything—just add cereal, fill the water reservoir, and select one of 21 presets. The cooker will sense the amount of grain you add and provide the right amount of water to cook it.This genius device does the thinking for you.

While the cooker can make all kinds of rice, from basmati to brown to wild rice, it can handle other grains like oats, farro, and quinoa, and even beans like pinto, chickpeas, and lentils. It's a kitchen hero for those of us who rely heavily on these pantry staples.

KitchenAid is known for its iconic and beloved stand mixers and the brand also sells small kitchen appliances such as hand mixers, food processors and blenders. I've relied on my seven-quart KitchenAid stand mixer for countless recipe tests and baking projects over the past 12 years, and it has never failed me. Just Recipes editors are also big fans of this trusted brand, often recommending its products, such as choppers, ice cream makers, immersion blenders, and more.

With this latest addition to its lineup of kitchen appliance superheroes, KitchenAid is focusing on what it does best: helping you get dinner on the table with more ease. Doing and less room for error (or coarse rice).
