OK, so I thought a rice cooker would be a nice idea since we only eat brown rice, but now that I have the thing (got it from an Amazon lightening deal), I think, "It's HUGE" and "even at this great price, is it worth it?" It says you should only keep things warm for 12 hours or it gets a "flavor" and should only be reheated in it once because it will get a flavor... so what's the point? Am I missing something here? These are super popular, but do most people use them like a slow cooker? Clueless!
