Mac and Cheese
In a rice cooker, combine chicken broth and pasta and simmer until the liquid is absorbed (usually takes 15 minutes). Pour in the milk and cheese as soon as the liquid has been absorbed. Add more milk if you want your mac and cheese to be more creamy.

Fill the rice cooker halfway with water and add the oats. Season with a pinch of salt and set aside to simmer. If you want your oats to be softer, add extra water until they reach your desired consistency. Stir in some fruits, nuts, or grains of your choosing once it's reached your desired consistency.

Country Style Ribs
Heat the olive oil in the rice cooker pan. Toss in the brown sugar and roll the ribs in it, ensuring they are fully coated. Cook the ribs till golden once they've been coated. The beer, BBQ sauce, and Worcestershire sauce can then be added. Secure the cover and press cook once the mixture has foamed up. After cooking, let aside for 15 minutes to allow the sauce to thicken slightly.
