Once upon a time(a little under 2 months ago), I moved into the place where I now live. I didn’t know what would be there waiting for me, and after finding my bearings I was left with a stove, an oven, and a frying pan. For a wannabe chef, this simply wasn’t enough; something was missing. At the same time, I remembered having a CSN stores gift certificate I won to spend on anything from wardrobes, to yoga mats, to—you guessed it—rice cookers.
After a conversation with some good friends, I decided that this was the missing piece of my puzzle. I looked at design after design and knew I was going to need something powerful(read: expensive). Luckily, after sales and my coupon I got this model rice cooker at over 50% off.
After making this big purchase, my biggest worry was how would I like it? Would I even use the darn thing? In short, it was everything I could have asked for. I never thought I needed a rice cooker; I don’t even eat rice all that often. But since the purchase I’ve used this almost every day cooking quinoa and adding in leftover protein and produce. It makes a mean savory pumpkin quinoa in 20 minutes flat and has to me to class on time. And I can tell this machine will last through the years.
I’m happy to have the opportunity to pay it forward and offer one reader their own gift certificate worth $45 to get whatever’s missing from their life. There are 2 ways to enter. Please leave a separate comment for each mode of entry.
