Rice is a staple in so many different cuisines, but it can be hard to get right on the stovetop — especially if you're short on time or have to share a space with others. That's why rice cookers are a student or apartment dweller's best friend. With just the touch of a button, you can have perfectly cooked rice without having to think about it. The downside? Some rice cookers can be bulky, which isn't great when you've got limited counterspace. That's why the Aroma Housewares 1-Quart Rice Cooker is the perfect option, plus it's on sale at Amazon right now up to 36% off.

The Aroma 1-Quart Rice Cooker is the perfect size for a small space, since it's just 8 inches tall and 10 inches wide. It makes 2 to 4 cups of any variety of rice, which is perfect if you're just using the cooker for yourself.

The cooker comes in white — on sale for $16 right now — but also fun colors like pink, or blue, which are also discounted on Amazon. It's designed with a simple one-touch button that generates continuous heat to cook rice, oats, grains. You simply add rinsed rice, liquid, cover, hit the button, and allow it to cook. There are even measurement guides to let you know how much rice and liquid you'll need, and once the process is completed, the machine automatically switches to warming mode to keep your rice hot and fluffy without the need for you to stir it.
