    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:
    Shouldn't the rice cooker turn from cook to just warm after a certain time?

    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!
    No idea. I usually pour what I think is the right amount in and after many years of experimentation, I've honed that skill quite well.

    Those methods sound very odd to me, especially microwaving it.
    Microwavable rice is usually precooked I believe, you're just heating it up (in a bag, I guess, I've never actually done it myself).

    Creole is the official language in Seychelles, I don't know how to write it cause I grew up in England but I'm pretty sure we have a standard.

    Yeah they do, but I was talking about boiling it in a normal pot. That's when I burn it haha, doesn't anyone else burn their rice??! Maybe it's just me

    That's pretty surprising :P

    Rice and peas are popular to eat with curry/stew in my dad's country and my mum cooks Jollof rice.

    Yeahh same but my mum always boils rice in the pan, so we never had the luxury of a rice cooker. I'm going to ask her why we don't have one since she cooks rice a lot

    All of them? Bold
    Seriously though, no black person I know has one
    I suppose it depends on the country they're from too..
