– Rinse the rice before cooking to remove any dirt or debris.
– Choose long-grain white rice for best results. Short-grain or brown rice will require different cooking times and may need more water.
– Keep the lid on while cooking to prevent steam from escaping.
– Add a pinch of salt while cooking to enhance the flavor of the rice.
– Once it is cooked, let the rice sit for at least five minutes before serving. This allows the grains to absorb any remaining moisture and become fluffy.
