KitchenAid has introduced the brand’s first Grain and Rice Cooker, said by the company to sense automatically how much grain has been added and dispenses the right amount of water for optimum cooking performance.

“The innovation behind the KitchenAid Grain and Rice Cooker was driven by consumers,” said Chad Ries, global brand director for KitchenAid small appliances at Whirlpool Corporation. “Consumers are craving simplicity in their routines and that’s exactly what this new product delivers as it removes the guesswork in the kitchen with its automation features. KitchenAid brand is dedicated to meeting the demands of its consumer base and we’re excited to unveil the Grain and Rice Cooker as the first of many innovations to come.”

The Grain and Rice Cooker has a modern design and touchscreen controls for 21 preset options for cooking rice, beans, oats, couscous, quinoa, barley, farro and more. The integrated scale automatically senses the amount of grains, rice or beans that have been added in order to calculate the ideal water-to-grain ratio.

Features also include:

  • Custom Cooking Mode: Consumers can experiment with a variety of grains, beans, and rice beyond the preset options or add liquids other than water, like broth or milk, directly to the cooking pot.
  • Steam Cooking Mode: The included steamer basket fits above the cooking pot, making it easy to steam veggies, eggs, fish or meat while the grains cook below.
  • Keep Warm: Grains can be kept at serving temperature for up to six hours once cooking is done.
  • Delayed Cook: Cooking can be scheduled up to 24 hours in adance, providing more flexibility with meal prep routines.
  • 8-Cup Capacity: The cooker makes up to eight cups of cooked grains, rice or beans.
  • Easy-To-Clean Design: The non-stick cooking pot is dishwasher-safe. For tougher messes, the cooker has a Steam Cleaning Cycle that can be used first to loosen any cooked-on food residue before placing it in the dishwasher.

The Grain and Rice Cooker is available for purchase on KitchenAid.com for $299.99.
