Since so many Asians live in various parts of the world, oriental food became popular in countries such as United States or UK. I am happy that so many tasty types of food spread to different parts of the world. I do not need to travel to China to taste some rice. I have two options: I can go to a restaurant that serves Chinese food or I can try to cook Chinese food at home. I know that if I am going to look at a guide to rice cooker ratings I am going to find a rice cooker that I am going to like. I am not going to attempt to cook rice without a rice cooker.
