I have a rice cooker I haven't used in years. I usually just cook the rice in a pot.

If you are preparing rice for a large number of people (about 6,8 or more) transfer it to a ziploc bag and refrigerate it until you need it. Then microwave to heat up. The bag will seal in the heat and steam and rice will come out great. Don't leave it in your rice cooker where it will dry out. I once had to serve seafood gumbo at a Cajun cookoff fundraiser for 50 people and I heated up all of my rice in ziploc bags and kept them in a preheated cooler. The rice was hot when I served it with the gumbo over the top. Of course it helped that it was gone in about 10 minutes. My Cajun partner and I came in First and Third Place that day.
