The beauty of a steamer is that it can stop the steam according to the interval set and it can cook a large variety of food from rice, to eggs, vegetables, meat or fish while leaving the nutrients and vitamins untouched.

The rice cooker is basically based on the same principle. In spite of being limited due to the fact that it only cooks rice, this cute kitchen addition saves you a lot of trouble when cooking Chinese or Thai.

The so many trends call for introducing steamed rice into the modern kitchen. In addition to providing an easy to cook option the rice cooker also saves you a lot of fuss and gets your meal done in 20 minutes.

Of course most of the rice cookers allow you to cook rice in combination with eggs, milk and many other foods. Maybe it is more limited than the steamer, but it surely is a brilliant machine.

As an addition, the rice cooker comes in a large variety of technology from basic to high end. While the basic simply boils the rice and can be purchased for a very acceptable price, the high end options bring forward customizable levels of moisture and hardness and a higher cost.

When compared, many of us would go for a steamer but if steamed meat and veggies are not your thing, the rice cooker would fit you better.

However if you are the owner of a high tech, green kitchen, a steamer will be the right choice.
