It's funny you mentioned the baker's roller as a back rubber...I just had a show and my grandma bought it for that exact reason. "It'll make a great messager and it comes with a back scratcher." We all thought it was funny.


Clock Timer

Clock Timer is also great for kids timeout - clip it to them and tell them they can come out when they beep.

I have a friend who uses it for her kids reading - clips it to him and tells him he is done with his independent reading when he beeps. (He is not into reading and this eliminates the constant "Mom, Am I Done Yet??" questions.)

A friend asked me if the microwave rice cooker could also be used for cooking beans. Does anybody know? Thanks.

I don't know about beans but I had been asked about pasta so I called the test kitchens. They said they would not do pasta. They said it works best with rice OR you can use any packaged rice/pasta as long as it has microwave directions. I had tried pasta before they called me back and it did boil over a little but did work. I would TRY the beans at your home and see for yourself. ;)

more alternative uses!

Clock timer...
*we use it to track "time out" minutes for our toddler and for potty training (she pushes the button to start/stop and it keeps her sitting for a couple of minutes).
*also to take with us when we're playing outside and I've got something in the oven.

Crinkle Cutter...
*sliced up zucchini & squash and sauted w/ a little olive oil in my professional family skillet and it made "grill marks"...too cool!

I just heard that you could brown ground beef in the micro cooker this last weekend. Can anyone tell me how? Thanks!

It is the ONLY way to brown ground beef...no more splatter grease mess or babysitting your stovetop.

Put your meat in the microcooker and cook for 2 minutes. Stir. Repeat...2 minutes cooking....stir. Do this until it is done. When done, turn the microcooker over to strain fat from holes.

If you don't stop to stir every 2 minutes, you'll end up with a HUGE HAMBURGER patty!

Also works great for chicken.
