    I rinse my rice both before and after cooking. Overcooking it too makes it gluggy. I cook for around 13-14 min once the water boils.

    I love my Thermomix when we got it I replaced a whole pile of appliances, the worst one I still have would have to be the sandwich press but only because its dying from use- the hinge on the side is broken..

    I love my slow cooker! I make casseroles, silverside, pulled pork/meat, roasts, mince meat... lots of stuff, and no I don't bother browning anything just chop n chuck turn it on and I get on with my day 5 hours later dinner is served and I always have enough to freeze for when I can't be bothered.
    most useless appliance is the juicer which I used maybe 5 times, any sort of slicers (DH is obsessed and keeps buying them... I keep getting rid of them)

    My pasta maker. I used it once and never again! It's sitting in my garage waiting to be thrown out.

    Blender. Never use it.

    I love our rice cooker! We just replaced it as we wore out the old one. We also use the slow cooker a fair bit. It makes amazing Indian curries, lamb shanks, bolognese... and it's brilliant for batch cooking.

    I love my rice cooker as well, and my chopper/blender thing.
    My DF's family are all into the slushie, pie, pancake maker. I'm not.
    This thread has actually given me a good idea to go through my cupboards and throw them out

    Oh yeh I forgot our snow cone maker....christmas present, I think we used it once LOL

    I have a microwave rice cooker from tupperware that I love love love so that saves on the whole appliance thing.

    Love my slow cooker though...very handy when I know that when we know that tea time is going to be hectic.
