I earned my name as MomMomOnTheGo because our family is always on the go. With 6 people in our house, kids in multiple sports, and full time jobs, we are never really sitting still for any length of time. I know that many of you can relate and if you can, then you can relate to the limited time you have for making a great, healthy dinner your kids will love. I certainly do not have hours to prepare dinner and I know you probably don’t either.
Dinner had become a 4 letter word for us grown ups. We need it every night, it never goes away, and the kids need something healthy to keep them growing strong. We need something that does not take hours to make. It was feeling like an impossible and dreaded task every day.
Then entered our Philips Variety Rice Cooker. Did you just hear that violin music in the background or was it just me. 🙂
Okay so I have to say that Philips, you are really limiting the exposure on your product by calling it a variety rice cooker. It makes it sound like it can handle all types of rice. The truth is, it can handle just about anything.
We have put our Philips Variety Rice Cooker to the test and it does awesome, rice, chili, pasta sauce, chicken, and pulled pork. Those are just a few of the things that we have tried.
It seems that the recipes you can make in the Philips Variety Rice Cooker are endless and that is because of all the features this queen of cookers has…….

I have to admit that the Variety Cooker is a blessing for us. We don’t use it every night of course, but we do use it on those crazy, busy nights. We put everything in the Variety Cooker in the morning, set it to go and voila, dinner is served, warm, healthy and right on time whenever we are back home.
I cannot even express how much relief in our parental duties and day, that having the Variety Cooker has provided.
Here are a couple of features that I really love about the Philips Variety Rice Cooker that I have not normally seen on other type of variety cookers…..
*Power failure back up function
*24 hour pre-set timer
*13 temperature selections
I always like to mention things I would like to see to make me love a product even more and here are a couple…
*I like being able to see the food cooking without having to open the unit so a little window in the top would make the unit even more awesome.
*I would love the unit to come with a lid for the inner pot, so I can take the pot and put it in the fridge with a lid.
Other than those two suggestions, the Philips Variety Rice Cooker is awesome. It comes with a number of accessories…
I could really go on and on about how much my Philips Variety Rice Cooker has made dinner a lot less stressful in our house. We have gone from thinking dinner again!!! to okay what are we creating for dinner tonight.
