I have not quite figured out everything I could cook in it. But it is pretty easy to figure out. It comes with a pot, steamer basket and a lid. Then of course the electric outlet where you can choose your cooking temperature or setting. Which in my opinion makes this pretty snazzy!
It is made to be able to cook rice in the bottom.Then fish or other lean protein with a vegetable on top in the steamer basket. I am all good with cooking the rice in the bottom and the veggies on the top. But I am not quite sure about having my meat dripping drip into the rice in the bottom??
So...In this case I used pre-cooked chicken that I simply steamed to heat up.
Now maybe if you use Fish? That may not be so bad.
You can also use this to make one pot dishes and NOT use the steamer basket at all and make stews and chili's. All I know is that I am going to get a WHOLE LOT of use out of this little contraption!
It has a heat setting up to 500-550..I think!
Now there is one issue with this..It comes with a measuring cup for rice and is marked in the inside. It also comes with an instruction book. But you are pretty much on your own when it comes to figuring out how much water to add! In my opinion..Just go by what the box or bag says. That is what we have done so far. We did find an old manual online from an older version of the same cooker. It gives a bit more information.We have also found that other owners of this product are having similar issues. But I would still buy it again!

Jack has already used it more then I have. He likes healthy cooking just as much if not more then I do.
He is the one that is always after me to EAT MY PROTEIN! So having another kitchen appliance in which he can cook chicken...Lets just say he too is VERY happy!
