I love my rice cooker, because it is so set-and-forget and because it spreads the sweet smell of cooking rice all through the house, calling me into the kitchen for a pre-dinner drink. If you buy one, get yourself a heap of rice and cook it all weekend, to get your quantity of rice to water right (they’re all a bit different). If you don’t have one, turn an ordinary saucepan into a rice cooker. One cup of rice will cook into three cups of cooked rice, but always cook more rice than you thin
