    Throw away those rice cookers and get back the real estate in your kitchen cabinet. This is easy and you don't have to watch the pot. No more Minute Rice for me. I use to cook my rice in the microwave, which is also pretty easy, but I think that this method is even faster. My rice came out nice and fluffy and cooked perfectly. Thanks, Martha.
