July 17, 2013:In a thread titled “Necessary Kitchen/Household Items,” one nonnyjeeredat all the previous commenters who had named a rice cooker as one such thing.“It's not difficult to cook (real! not instant!) rice in a pot on the stove. Take it from someone who eats a shit ton of rice.”
Another nonny took exception to this: “Your condescension is adorable. A rice cooker is pretty much wash rice and press a button. Otherwise you have to time it and and watch your pot. Some of us have other shit to do.” Yet another pointed out,“Um this is cultural. Some of us come from a background that has rice as a staple for most meals.”
While this was not a particularly contentious thread by meme standards, it is remembered fondly by many.
