Has anyone successfully cooked Risotto in their rice cooker?

I was wondering if a simple Risotto, using Arborio rice, can be made in a rice cooker.

  1. Yes! I made a great risotto in my rice cooker w/white wine, chicken stock, and parmesan cheese. I used the guidelines in the instruction book that came with the rice cooker. It was super easy and the results were delicious.

      But did it come out creamy like a risotto is supposed to? I have done it successfully in a pressure cooker, but have not tried the rice cooker.

        What brand is your rice cooker...I have a Sanyo.with 'Fuzzy Logic"...

      2. I have a very inexpensive rice cooker and it never fails to impress me.
        My latest comfort food (I have a broken ankle) is a simple risotto of rice, water to the first knuckle, a can of mushroom soup (the comfort element) and shaved reggiano.
        It comes out with perfect flavour and texture, just a bit of bite. If I wanted more creaminess, I would add some stock and butter.

        1. No, but I make risotto in the microwave all the time in the summer when I don't want to heat up the kitchen. Works fine.
