    I've only done rice on the stove top. I use more water then it recommends if it is the slow cook rice. I do something like 1 c rice to 2 c water. I would rather get rid of some the have a bunch sticking to the pot. Also, DON't open that lid until after 18 min. YOu let mosture out and it is better to leave it shut.

    JMO though.

    If your family eat a lot of rice maybe a rice cooker is best since most will keep the rice warm all day.

    I still have a problem cooking white rice on the stovetop. Most times it gets super hard on the bottom and i feel like I am wasting lots of rice.

    I do 2 cups water, 1 cup rice, 1 teaspoon chicken bouillon (I use bouillon in noodles, too), bring it to a boil, drop the heat to just simmering, slap the lid on and leave it alone for 15 minutes. Don't even open the lid.

    If you add the rice only after the water is boiling, then it won't be a sticky mess when it's done.

    that is my issue too. i do use the 2 to 1 rule always. and i even turn it down super low so it doesn't boil over or get too hot, but still i wind up with messed up rice. we don't eat a lot of rice, but sometimes I just want a nice bowl of rice.

    My family has nooo problem cooking rice on the stove, but I can't do it for the life of me! It's always either too soggy or still raw.

    I just don't cook it!

    Try the minuite rice. That might be a better thing for you.

    I've started doing all of my rice on the stove top because my rice cooker spits and sputters everywhere and makes a huge mess! My stove rice always turns out great You just can't lift the lid until it's done.

    I always put the rice in cold water and then bring it to a boil and it's never mushy
