I too have cooked quinoa in it and it turned out perfect. I also have made soup in it only keep an eye when it starts to boil open the lid a little. Brown rice pilaf turned out good too

I love my rice cooker. I have actually even made chicken in it. Pound out the chicken, spread dijon and 1 slice ham/turkey and 1 slice thin provolone. Roll it up, toothpick it, and steam it. It seems like about 15ish minutes... While cooking, puree raspberries to serve as a sauce. Very delish!!
There are some similar recipes at the aroma-housewares website.

I have used my rice cooker (same brand as yours) to also make quinoa, and the quinoa turned out perfect! I've used the steamer part for vegetables like broccoli & asparagus which turned out great even though I didn't add anything like salt or butter. You do have to watch the veggies, they will be finished before the rice is. I still haven't got the timing down where they are finished at the same time.

Since I gave up white rice, I decided to get a rice cooker. I used it for the first time tonight and everyone loved the rice. It was chewy and not gummy like it had been using the stovetop method.
I was curious if anyone had a rice cooker and used it for other things. I have an Aroma which has a steamer and says you can use it for soup and stews. It does have fuzzy logic.
Can I cook other grains in it? Do you have any tasty recipes for it?
