My New Kitchen Helpers

Lately, Makan King & Queen have not eating out frequently. We stick to Makan Queen's home cooked meal. :) Makan Queen is so hardworking preparing dinner after work on weekdays, and also over the weekends. This is consistently practiced for nearly 6 months. Good job, Makan Queen! So, are you aware of who is Makan Queen? It's me lor… :P

Just last week, I proposed to hubby that we should upgrade some of our cooking utencils to something which are more reliable and user friendly. Afterall, we are the one that get the benefits from the investment, right? Hubby supported my proposal, and we started our plan...

All the while, I just stick to the common electric rice cooker which was a free gift. It's still functioning well after 3 years. However, some of the parts have been broken off, such as the rice scoop holder and the moisture retainer. :( So, the rice cooker is one of the things that I wish to get a new replacement unit.

Well, after visiting to Jusco and Harvey Norman, we got an basic idea and gained some knowledge on the electric cooker models. We went through a long discussion in selecting our suitable candidate. Eventually, we agreed to buy a more reliable rice cooker - Panasonic's Microcomputer rice cooker with Neuro Fuzzy Technology. Tada...



The thing that caught my attention was the Diamond Fluorine coated inner pot. Yes, you can see the "bling bling" on the pot's inner surface. It's non-stick and scratch resistance. The microprocessor is programmed to cook your rice to perfection and it is very user friendly. You can select to cook white rice, brown rice, sushi, nasi lemak, porridge, or for slow cooking and steaming purposes. :) It looks impressive! And....you can preset what time to cook the rice. Sounds great!

Now, the rice cooking task has been passed on to hubby. He would love to contribute to our home cooked routine job. :) He tried the brown rice cooking mode that takes for 120 minutes to compared with the quick cook. Both passed with distinction. The brown rice is so soft and fluffy. The pot is easy for washing due to it's non stick surface.


Besides that, we've bought a Dupont Teflon non stick pan with glass cover. I've used it for my daily stir fry process. So far so good. It promotes healthy cooking style with less oil. It just fulfil my requirement to stir fry veggie with olive oil.

With these 2 reliable kitchen helpers, I'm more willing to cook. *Wink Wink*
