These are a lot of good ideas. Certainly I can toss the veggies in the microwave (the nuclear option
) once I get home and just use the CP for meats and perhaps taters. I like the idea of rice cooking well - it's not that I don't know how to cook rice, I just have zero patience for it these days, so it would be very helpful for it to actually cook properly without me having to deal with it.
Oh, and no matter what, a standard work day means I leave at about 6 AM and we don't eat dinner until maybe 7 or 8 PM, so I suspect pretty much anything in there will be cooked, even chicken.
