These Space-Saving Appliances Can Cook Rice + Cook Your Ulam, Too!
Some of these appliances even have a bake function!
Multi-cookers are a great appliance if you want to save up on kitchen space! Instead of buying several kitchen appliances that have a single function, a multi-cooker can tackle multiple cooking tasks such as cooking rice, baking, slow cooking, steaming, fermenting, frying, and more.
