Strategist UK staff writer Chris Mandle snapped up this rice cooker (which can cook up to six portions) when it went on sale during Prime Day in October (we’d previously featured it in our look at the best-rated rice cookers on Amazon). “I wanted to follow the wisdom of the crowd a bit, and I wanted something affordable in case I didn’t use it much,” Chris says. But he now finds himself using it three times a week, every week — typically for last-minute weeknight meals. “I used to be quite fixated on meal-planning and inventory-taking,” he says. “But nowadays, I like to just plonk some rice in the cooker and figure out the rest on the fly — usually a combination of roasted chicken thighs or fish, greens, and hot sauce”. The inner bowl is copper-coloured, which Chris says is nice enough to just bring straight to the table if he’s cooking for his partner, and the soft click the cooker makes when the rice is done is particularly pleasing, too. It’s now 25 percent off: £30, down from £40.
