If you’ve been in the market for a rice cooker but don’t want to pay full price, finding the best Black Friday rice cooker deals should be at the top of your shopping priorities this holiday season. While we’re still a couple weeks away from the Black Friday/ Cyber Monday rush, deals are already popping up around the internet, and we’re keeping track of them as they come.
A rice cooker is a useful and convenient kitchen appliance for any person who eats rice at least once a week. Cooking rice on a stove requires attention, a rice cooker does not. Instead, a rice cooker handles all the soaking, adjusting, and timing on its own, leaving you to carry on cooking, working, or enjoying life as you please. And many rice cookers can actually do a lot more than cook rice; plenty are bonafide multicookers with the capabilities of a slow cooker, pressure cooker, and food steamer all in one machine.
