Hi CharlieD - it could be that the bottom surface of the pan was too large and the water simmered away too fast; or it just simmered too fast.

I let mine come to a boil, simmer for 20 minutes covered, turn off stove, then let set for 10 minutes covered then take out and season with rice wine vinegar, sake, salt, and sugar, and cool by fanning and folding.

interesting what we've learned over the years, huh?

chuck, do you rinse your short grain rice that's to be made into sushi? i find 3 good quick soaks and rinses does the trick to remove just enough starch to keep it sticky-ish but not gummy.

also, i miss that quick little elfie.
