I was cooking rice today, and then I placed it in the rice cooker, plugged it in, then set it to cook. I wanted to make sure I had the water level correctly (I set it to nearly double the expected level when cooking brown rice) but as I turned it open (while it was cooking) it suddenly made a huge spark at the hinge.
There's some black marks on the hinge now. Pic related is the cheap rice cooler I have.
What the hell happened? I thought it'd be safe to open the rice cooker since whether it's cooking or just warming, that's just the temperature. Did I just fuck up by opening it while it was going to cook, or would it have happened anyways even before I set it to cook?
Should I just stick to cooking my rice on the stove?

I've finally started to come into a bunch of money from my job and am looking to start something of a cocktail bar at my house. I already got a bartending kit with shaker, drink spouts, measured shot glasses, and a bar spoon. I also picked up a bunch of olives, maraschino liqueur, Campari, both dry and sweet vermouth, vodka, gin, whiskey, and made a huge vat of simple syrup (lolbaristalife).
What are some other essentials for a bar though? Ideally I want to be able to make just about any drink anyone wants. Looking for some basic liqueurs/mixers and more equipment. thanks!

Hello co/ck/s, I'm a skinny fat guy who's trying to get fit and also improve his diet.
So I'm looking for side dishes that'd bring carbs to my diet, basic plain stuff
Which one is better in terms of nutrition?
>Potatoes (boiled, roasted with little oil)
>Sweet Potatoes (roasted with little oil)
I'd try to eat these at lunch, having greens and veggies for supper.
I already eat lots of eggs, white meat, fish, some red meat, fruits and OATS for breakfast.
