Too much stuff

Cooks Illustrated magazine just sent me a subscriber survey on kitchen equipment. Of the 58 or so items they asked about, I lack 6: charcoal grill (too much trouble--the gas grill does for me), mandoline slicer, food mill, spice grinder (that's a bit of a cheat, as I have one that works so poorly I don't use it), rice cooker, and pressure cooker.

Can you tell cooking is a major hobby?

You might consider picking up a rice cooker. They are utterly awesome, and incredibly, massively useful!

So, I've looked at rice cookers, and can't see them making sense for me. I don't eat much rice or grains as sides--more in soups. I know you can do a lot more with one than just rice, but does the use extend beyond grain-based stuff?

Go ahead, convince me I need another kitchen gadget!

It's not like I don't have things that accomplish the same tasks. <g> (Food processor with all the extra blades, mortar and pestle.) Except for the pressure cooker, I guess. But I forgot...I do have a mini pressure cooker for the microwave. Only used it once, as I just don't think about it and am usually not in that much of a rush to cook something. And no rice cooker, but as I replied to shrewreader, I haven't figured out a use for a rice cooker in my current diet, which is very light on cooked grains.

Have you read Kerry Greenwood's Corinna Chapman mysteries? She's a baker, so there's some excellent food porn, as well as the Best Apartment Bldg [Insula] Ever.
