I'm grateful to all the people at Zojirushi in Japan who were involved in the invention, manufacture, and distribution of my rice cooker. This machine has faithfully and reliably made uncounted servings of rice for me and my wife over the years.
When the rice is cooked to perfection it plays a jaunty little tune and then keeps the rice warm and ready to eat until the rest of whatever we might have for dinner is ready. It never fails to make the rice as perfect as rice gets.
I'm also grateful to all the people involved in growing the rice I cook, mostly organic rice from Lundberg farms in California.
I'm grateful to all the many people who put food within my easy reach.
