A rice cooker would be a great addition to our home. I enjoy cooking Asian dishes. We’ve been without a range for two years, and I’ve been frustrated. I didn’t have time to look around for a new rice cooker, so we cooked basmati rice over the stove. But it wasn’t as good as using a range.

I was in awe the moment I got my Micon. The icon’s seven settings (white/sushi; mixed; porridge; sweet brown rice, quick cooking, steam, and quick cooking), steaming basket, and “keep warm” feature are all responsible for the perfectly fluffy and tender results. The cute melody played by the rice cooker when the rice is done always makes me smile.

With a pot of perfectly cooked rice, I couldn’t resist making some fried. I’ve made pancetta fried rice and quinoa fried rice, so I went a different route using Spam. Spam is a staple in my family’s home, and I remember how excited we were when my mother would open the can. This Spam Fried Rice quickly became a favorite among children with the addition of Sriracha.
