    Seeking appliance recommendations...

    Since I have less time but more space in my kitchen, and a little bit more income (rent is less, we don't need day care during the school year, we can carpool most days, etc), I'm looking to get two things--a rice cooker and a bread maker. I want both to have timers, so they can cook when I am at work, and it would be nice to have the settings where the rice cooker can make other steamed veggies, or even a whole meal, and the bread maker can also mix dough for pasta, make GF breads, etc.

    Anyone have recommendations?

But what if I find a trident tomorrow?" ~~Letters to Poseidon, Cees Nooteboom

    “We still carry this primal relationship to the Earth within our consciousness, even if we have long forgotten it. It is a primal recognition of the wonder, beauty, and divine nature of the Earth. It is a felt reverence for all that exists. Once we bring this foundational quality into our consciousness, we will be able to respond to our present man-made crisis from a place of balance, in which our actions will be grounded in an attitude of respect for all of life. This is the nature of real sustainability.”
    ~~Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

    My bread maker is a Sunbeam. I don't know if it does pasta (never thought of trying. Now I wonder...), but I've had it for about 12 years, works like a charm.

    I just got one for my daughter for Christmas.
    Those who have suffered understand suffering and therefore extend their hand.

    I can't do everything, but I can do something.

    Alright so I will come back with bread maker information. I have 2 that have great reviews, one is closer to $100 depending on where you look thats a pressure cooker, rice maker, slow cooker, and steamer all in one. Its the Instant Pot and rated the number 1 "rice cooker" of 2015. The second is the number 2 pick of 2015. This one is an 8 cup rice maker/steamer. It has a 15 hour delay on it and goes automatically to warm setting when after it finishes.

    Number 1

    Number 2
