La Cuisinière/Cooker

Hi there, what does "la cuisinière" refer to? I'm familiar with rice cookers, pressure cookers and slow cookers; is the word used for any specific appliance in particular? Thanks!

Hi Avery, 

A cooker is a general term for what you might find in the average kitchen, fixed to the floor.

a rice cooker = un cuiseur à riz

a pressure cooker = une cocotte minute

a slow cooker= une (cocotte) mijoteuse

Small appliances have their own names, I find that the best way to learn extra vocabulary is to look at catalogues like the following one from La Redoute, and its 'Electroménager' page.

Bonne Continuation!
