How to Make Rice in a Rice Cooker
Hi Everyone, I’ve had a few years where I haven’t had a rice cooker.
I had one before that had been a hand-me-down from my parents which I finally donated to charity a few years ago when I had to downsize before we moved to our home almost 4 years ago.
Ever since then, I have been pining for another rice cooker.
They just make life so much easier when preparing a meal because I can just set the rice cooker, prepare the other components in the meal, and then magically the rice is just done right before serving.
There are SO many meals that I love which involve rice and it’s just an easy side to have on a weeknight when I am trying to get dinner on the table.
I feel like having one takes the stress out of preparing dinner plus rice is not expensive and having that food staple as a part of our dinner can be a nutritious and economical addition to our family meals.
I love my new Aroma rice cooker which is shown in all of these pictures.
I had noticed about a year ago that my father-in-law got on and he was so pleased with it.
I’m planning on giving one to my parents for Christmas since they currently do not have a rice cooker and I know they are going to love this one.

If you make this recipe, please rate and comment on how it came out! Thank you in advance! Best, ~Sara xo
Just going to point out that you should wash your rice. Run it over cool/cold water. It’ll take some of the sticky/gumminess out of your rice and also it’s good to check in case rocks or other debris ends up in your rice.
I also used this recipe but since I use long rice it needs a bit more water than short rice. Otherwise the rice isn’t fully cooked. Something I’ve learned over the past few months. The more you know!~
