After 12 years of marriage, this purchase was the first I ever made for a rice cooker. You see, the old rice cooker I used all these years was a wedding gift.
With the Ramadhan month here and I wasn't looking forward to waking up really, really early in the morning to cook; a rice cooker with a timer seems to be a much needed item. My old rice cooker was a simple on/off /keep warm type of rice cooker. *^^*
If it's just me, I would have just eat a banana, some kurma (dates) and drink water for my sahur during this Ramadhan month and last till sundown for break fast but Raimie is starting to fast this year. He tried last year but didn't manage to complete it. He wants to try this year. He needs to, he is a big boy, after all!
This week, it's all porridge for us with the new rice cooker! It's nice to wake up at 5.00am and see my porridge all done. :)
My old rice cooker? Worry not. I'm not the type to forget faithful helper. It's still here in the kitchen. ^^
