This is absolutely not a pancake, using the batter you would to make a pancake does not grant you the infinite authority to call whatever you create with said batter a pancake. This was not cooked in a pan, therefore it is disqualified from PanCake status. This is at best a very thick disappointing non indented waffle.
There are the super basic ones, where you hit a switch/button, it cooks the rice, and then the cooker switches over to warm mode. These tend to be affordable, fast, and very simple to use. The technique behind them is brilliant in its simplicity. You have a pot of rice and water in the machine. The water is brought to a boil, and while it’s boiling, the temperature inside the rice cooker is a constant 100°C. Once the water has totally evaporated, the temperature spikes, which triggers the machine to stop cooking. And your rice is done.
Higher-end ones, however, are much more complex. Powered by “fuzzy logic” and full-on microprocessors running behind the scenes, they are capable of a more nuanced view on temperature, adjusting it variably over the cooking cycle. But these cookers tend to be a bit slower, so you’ll be waiting longer for your rice to finish.
