A small electric rice cooker is handy, too, as you can prepare enough rice for the whole day's eating and keep it warm until the next meal. You can steam vegetables in it simultaneously. You can get the simple On/Off kind, or a Fuzzy-Logic model such as the Sanyo will let you set it up ahead of time and have fresh rice waiting for you when you get home. It is also programmed to handle different types of rice like Brown, Sushi, sprouted rice, porridge, and oatmeal.
A solar oven is a cool idea, very eco-friendly ... but what do you do if its cloudy outside? And on those bright, sunny days, you may over-cook your food.
