Never had the need for a rice cooker, what's wrong with just boiling it in a pan? I'd never heard of one until my brother went to uni and said his Japanese friend cooked rice non-stop in their rice cooker :dontknow:
If you can judge the right amount of water to put in, you get the best rice every time.

Do you have a rice cooker at home, back in the old country, I think every house had a rice cooker and it was very common but I'm not sure if its common in the UK as much, is it?

If you do have one can you state your nationality.
Me, personally, no.

I do not. I cook rice multiple times a week but usually boil in the bag stuff for ease.

No. I use the old fashioned method, known as the saucepan. Admittedly I usually undercook or overcook the rice slightly but then I am mixed race and only partially recieved the superpower of cooking rice without a rice cooker from my Indian forebears.

I think most (indigenous) British people either use boil in the bag rice, microwave it, or try and fail to cook it like pasta.

Those methods sound very odd to me, especially microwaving it.

The same way you cook other things in a pot without burning it

Never had rice out a rice cooker, unless Chinese restaurants use rice cookers? :dontknow:
Hahahha it's just that almost everytime I've cooked rice out of a rice cooker, I forget about it and it burns and then I just spend hours (well, hours soaking it in water) trying to remove burnt rice from the pot :'

The restaurants have like massive rice cookers.... :cute:

Isn't it just like 1.2 cups of water to 1 cup of rice and by cup I mean the cups that you get with the rice cooker :')
Are those rice measuring cups? Haha!
