As simple as it gets. Never used a rice cooker? Nothing's simpler. Consider it ahead of other kitchen appliances like a grill pan or special asparagus steamer. Very useful!

1 1/2 cup White rice
2 3/4 cup Water

This basic recipe is here primarily as a RecipeLink anchor. The ratio of white rice to water depends upon the brand of rice you choose. I use "Nikko Calrose" rice in most applications, because I prefer somewhat sticky, Japanese-style rice.

The ratio with this particular brand is just under two times as much water as rice. So, for 3 healthy sized servings, use about 1 cup rice, and just under 2 cups of water.

Place the rice in the rice cooker, then the water, then put the lid in, and flip the switch. In 20-25 minutes, you've got great tasting rice, perfectly cooked. I find it's best to let the rice rest for 5-10 minutes after the rice cooker has finished its work.
