Country Style Pot Roast is on my list of all time favorite foods. As soon as the smell starts to drift through the house my mouth is watering. Sometimes I think the only reason I need a slow cooker is for this Pot Roast; it’s that good! However, it wasn’t until I received the 20-Cup Rice Cooker, Food Steamer and Slow Cooker for review that I realized all the cool things I could do with a slow cooker/food steamer/rice cooker.

For starters I can get rid of a few things that have been cluttering my cabinets and counter tops. No more gigantic steamer. No more awkwardly shaped crock pot. Even though we have a lot more room in our new home I’m not ready to give that all up because I still have too much stuff. With the Aroma 20-Cup Rice Cooker, Food Steamer and Slow Cooker I have 1 appliance that does the job of my older appliances.

The key thing I love about the 20-Cup Rice Cooker, Food Steamer and Slow Cooker is how well it fits on my counters. It’s not bulky at all and it’s so pretty! I know – a total girly thing to say, but it is! It’s all sleek and modern looking. Now – if only the rest of my kitchen looked this good!

Aroma 20-Cup Rice Cooker, Food Steamer and Slow Cooker (1)I haven’t made 20 cups of rice (yet) but I know I will be soon for the holidays. I can’t wait to make a huge thing of rice pudding! And I know we’ll be using the food steamer function a lot since we’re a seafood loving family and everyone knows steamed seafood is a staple around here.

When I made my Country Style Pot Roast tonight everyone was raving and begging for more. John kept asking what I did differently since I make this often. He came to the conclusion that the Slow Cooker was the reason behind it being “the best pot roast he’s ever had”. I’m happy to share that honor with the Aroma 20-Cup Rice Cooker, Food Steamer and Slow Cooker, but I do have to take at least a little credit! (If you want to try my pot roast you’ll find the recipe below!!)

    I was wishing just last night—again!-that I had one of the 4 Quart Stainless Steel Digital Deep Fryers.

  2. Sylvie W says

    I really one a rice cooker. My stovetop rice usually comes out thick and pasty. I want to make rice I can identify as rice :) I want to be the Uber Rice Cooker.

  3. Margot C says

    I like the looks of that 5-Quart
    Ceramic Inner Pot
    Digital Slow Cooker

    (go to the site and look up your own entries Cassandra)

  4. Aimee T says

    The stainless steel fryer. I am pretty satisfied with what’s in my kitchen but we do eat a lot of rice… a big rice cooker would be great!

  5. Margot C says

    Besides saying that I ant them all? (ha!) I’d start with this device the Rice Cooker Steamer that you are giving away here and then the 7 Quarts,
    Flat-Bottom, Fixed Temperature Control, Nonstick Electric Wok!

  6. Aimee T says

    The stainless steel deep fryer. I don’t really do a lot of fried foods but some fried mullet would be cool!

  7. paulette schneider says

    I’d love the 6-Quart Digital Pressure Cooker.
    my mom got one for Christmas so now, of course, I want one too.

  8. Debra S says

    know what? I know a gal close to me who is INSANE over “sticky rice”. I would LOVE to get her an 8 cup rice cooker. Then she can make the type of rice she loves!

  9. Amy says

    Oh, this is genius.

    I also think your tip of shaking the cornstarch then mixing it in is genius, I could never get this bit quite right.

  10. says

    I never even considered using my rice cooker for anything other than rice. Oh that’s right because mine is old and only makes rice. I’d be fine with the 8 cup digital
