The Breville BRC600XL Risotto Plus Rice and Risotto Maker is an automatic rice maker that does more than just make rice. An elegant interface offers user easy operation via a set of no-nonsense buttons. The dedicated cooking functions include settings for: risotto, saute, steam, and slow cook as well as the ever-popular automatic rice-making mode.

The multi-cooker is designed for easy automatic operation, but with the inclusion of so many cooking modes, versatility on the countertop is a big feature. The saute function not only provides an easy way to build flavor by browning ingredients before fully cooking, but it also supplies the main drive for making risotto. Through the dedicated risotto setting, temperature is monitored while rice grains are agitated by the simmering stock. The idea is that the machine will produce a batch of creamy risotto without the need to stir it while it is cooking.

Considering the potential applications that the one countertop appliance could produce, the range of possibilities is appealing. Combining uncommon functions with popular cooking modes only enhances this appeal.
