Anyway, there's no need to be afraid of rice cookers you know......... if they wer dangerous all of Singapore and Hong Kong would have burnt down by now.
My family has a National Ricecooker.
I had a friend who went overseas to study (he had a maid at home all his life so never had to use the rice cooker)
When he decided to use it for the first time, (in Melbourne, I think) he put the rice in and switched it on. He then left for his neighbour's room. (That's all there is to do isn't there?)
After 3 hours the rice was still not ready, and the kitchen was full of smoke. In a panic he switched the cooker off and opened it.
His friend looked in and was like "You need to add water before cooking the rice you know."
