Do absorption method, set and forget for 12 odd minutes.

But I am anti kitchen appliance, most people already have everything you need, the cost cost $'s, take up space, and then you turf them after it sits in the cupboard unused... like a bread maker.

In my house you either go absorption if you want it proper, or 2 minute microwave rice if you're lazy. Who needs another bulky thing in the kitchen that does exactly one thing* :/

^ use roughly 1.5 cups of water to 1 cup rice (check the pack).

Bring to boil then turn to super low and let simmer for 12 or so minutes (again check pack). Don't take the lid off during cooking. When cooking time elapsed, turn off, remove from heat if you don't have gas. You can leave lid on to keep warm after cooking finished.

Serve.

Profit.




If it's too gluggy you've used too much water, to hard and a bit crunchy, not enough water.

Rice cookers are cheap and handy. Saying you can use a pot and stove to cook rice instead of using a rice cooker is like saying you can use the grill to toast bread instead of a toaster.

You can but only if you want to sit there and make sure it doesn't boil over/burn your house down.

Add Rice and Milk to a large saucepan. Bring to boil. Put on simmer heat and stir occasionally for twenty minutes. Add sugar. Turn heat up. Bring to boil. Serve.

Or.

(to add a skin)
Turn oven to 150'C. Scatter rice and water in baking dish. Cook till water is absorbed. Add milk and sugar. Bake until thick and creamy (40mins). Sprinkle nutmeg on top. Put back in oven for ten minutes.

I often use the grill to make toast instead of the toaster, when its more than two people eating toast. What the hell do you do while it toasting? By the time you sit back down the toast would have popped, so wouldn't you stay in the kitchen anyway?

no, it's nothing like that
it's like comparing roasting a piece of bread over a fire vs. using a toaster
the piece of bread is the oldest way to toast bread, it works perfectly, but there is better technology now called a toaster

i dunno about you guys but i have way too many useless pieces of equipment in the kitchen that i never use already
i dont need to bring another powered white good into the kitchen to cook rice when an existing pot does the exact same thing, sure it requires 20 seconds extra attention to get it perfect, but that's 20 seconds I didn't have to pull some rice cooker out of the cupboard and find a socket for it

Hey Guys

I know there are a few food buffs on here and thought someone might be able to help. My crappy rice cooker died recently and I am looking to get a better quality one. I have done my research and I am chasing a Tiger JNP-S10U.

I can't seem to find it anywhere to buy it in Australia at the moment. Does anyone know where I might find one? Prefferably in QLD so I could go to a shop and grab it, if not I don't mind ordering it online.



I replied to you request for a better quality one with all the info you need,

fyi, it is a rice cooker, not a car, or a PC, there is f*** all to them

also, tiger is only available in 110volts from what I can see, which not only makes it not the best, but also unobtainable in this country (and it really just looks like a Japanese breville, not at all that great, but good at its job)

does this help you in anyway to come to the realization that my advise was sound,

or maybe you do want the best, then this ika with a larger stir bar (I'd go a X shape)

I would use a rice cooker if I ate rice all the time (and thus left the machine on the bench), but if you're only eating it occasionally, the absorption method wins! It's so much easier than most of you guys seem to think. You do this:

1. Put 1 cup rice and ~1.75 cups water in big saucepan.
2. Bring it to boil
3. Cover and turn down to low simmer for ~12 minutes
4. Take it off the heat and let it sit with the cover on for ~10 minutes.

No stirring, no watching, no nothing. This is all you gotta do. Just adjust the water ratio a little or the simmer time if you're finding it cooks not enough or too much for your tastes.

Seriously if you find this difficult, go kill yourself you useless sack of s***!

Maybe we are all too lazy to research a rice cooker, then go and buy it, unpack it, dispose of the packaging, find a place to store it, file the receipt for warranty, then use it. Oh and you need a job to afford to buy one in the first place.

So yeah, I think not having a rice cooker is the lazy option :)

No one is saying absorption method is hard, but you can't just flick a switch and forget it like you can with a cooker. I use every method I can to limit effort in cooking that doesn't affect the quality of the meal and a rice cooker is just one of those simple gadgets that removes a bit of the juggling act of dealing with multiple pots.

The advantage of a rice cooker is that you turn it on at the start of cooking and it keeps perfectly warm (not burnt) even if you go to use it 2 hours later. The hardest thing about cooking for me is getting the timing right so nothing is cold at the end. Rice cooker takes one element out of that equation.

so, i bought my gps for $450 some 6~7 years ago, not only have the maps been updated, it also tells me the current speed i'm traveling at, also, it covers all 7 states, plus the area's that the standard refidex(sp) doesn't cover,

so 7 x $20 per state, plus say, all the rural maps, (also, I have on my current GPS been to all states, but TAS on my one and only GPS) plus, say, the 3 fines I have avoided due to a speedo or three that have been been off in their reading)

and the Bluetooth feature (and therefore easy, and again fine avoiding)

that has paid for itself.

so stupid point!

so, you feel that a speedo that rely's on the size of the rotation of the wheel, (the tyre, which changes according to tyre pressure and temp, and tyre wear, all that affect the overall size of the tyre, and the size that differs ever so slightly from make to make and you can;t argue and be right) and some gears, or a digital read out that rely's on the information from this every changing size is more accurate that the GPS which is calculated from a (mostly) fixed set of several satellites, then averaged using these reading.

woops, looks like it was 2006 not 2007. definitely not 2003.

From 1 July 2006 newly introduced models of a vehicle available on the market must comply with ADR 18/03. Also, from 1 July 2007 any newly manufactured vehicle (excluding mopeds) must comply with this rule.

This new rule requires that the speedo must not indicate a speed less than the vehicle’s true speed or a speed greater than the vehicle’s true speed by an amount more than 10 percent plus 4 km/h.


http://www.racq.com.au/motoring/cars/car_advice/car_fact_sheets/speedo_accuracy


1 FUNCTION AND SCOPE
The function of this national standard is to specify requirements for the provision of speedometers.

2 APPLICABILITY
This national standard applies to the design and construction of LC, LD, LE, all M and N category vehicles from the
dates set out in clauses 2.1, 2.2 and the table below.

2.1 1 July 2006 on all new model vehicles.

2.2 1 July 2007 on all model vehicles.

2.3 For the purposes of clause 2.1 a "new model" is a vehicle model first produced with a 'Date of manufacture' on
or after 1 July 2006

...

5.3. The speed indicated shall not be less than the true speed of the vehicle. At the test speeds specified in paragraph 5.2.5. above, there shall be the following relationship between the speed displayed (V1 ) and the true speed (V2).
0 ≤ (V1 - V2) ≤ 0.1 V2 + 4 km/h

I swear the rice made in a rice cooker is better than is possible on a stove.


Totally agree, although the only rice cookers I've had are rice steamers? Not sure if its the same name or not. Anyway, yet to ever have stove/mw rice thats touched steamed rice, love it!

OK bringing this thread back to where is was....

Used the absorption method last night, was fairly easy as I was cooking chicken at the same time on the stovetop.

Intial thoughts are that is was messier and harder to clean (but not as hard as I expected) and the rice was good but not quite as good as the rice cooker will do accurately everytime. The biggest part was the boiling over as the stove came down from boiling temp to the low temperature, the solution for this would be to have 2 stove top areas going (one high and one low) and move it to the lower one once it is boiling but it means more power and more space that I can't put other things at the same time...

All in all though I have decided to put off buying another rice cooker as this seems easy enough but just needs a little bit more cleaning.

Guess you're using an electric stove then as with gas the temp comes down almost immediately. Instead of leaving the pot on, take it off the heat after it boils and then put it back on a few minutes later once your hotplate has cooled a little.
