I rinse the rice after it's cooked in the cold water to stop the cooking. And then put in the fridge. Works like a Swiss clock.

We use long grain rice and cook it using the absorption method, tastes fabulous with no gluggy bits, just perfect!

So I bought long grain rice yesterday, made a batch, cooked a bit less than the directions say, spread it nicely on cookie sheet and put it in my refrigerator downstairs in basement.
I check rice today and it's frozen solid :) The fridge was set on coldest setting :(
Wonder if I defrost it, if it'll be any good.

Rice freezes well, so it should be fine.

Go out and buy yourself a rice cooker. One part rice, two parts water for white rice, one part rice, three parts water for brown rice. Perfect rice every time. Take the bucket out of the rice cooker and stick it in the refrigerator overnight and the rice is ready for frying the next day!

I've just never understood the need for a rice cooker and yet another costly electrical appliance to take up counter or cabinet space. Maybe if I made rice every single day, but my rice turns out perfect every time in my multi purpose pot on top of the stove. Jes saying.

I was thinking the same thing.

With a rice cooker we can make a batch for breakfast, come back at lunch its still hot and fresh, come back again that night and its still hot and fresh. I bet your pot on the stove does not do that. Jes saying.
