Mikey; I always cook rice in the microwave.
The larger picture is what I use for cooking it in. You must
cover the rice with water. I usually cook enough for 2 of us and try to have none left over. It's trial and error at first. The amount of rice I cook takes about 10 to 12 mins, open the door and check on it if unsure.
When it's cooked, run boiling water over it whilst in its strainer. If you prefer you can wash the rice first, i always do it afterwards. It turns out very well with soft fluffy grains; not sticking together. No soup, no burning. Don't give up. Give it a try. It really does make lovely rice. After it's washed you can add, cinnamon or lemon zest or whatever you feel like.
Our microwave is a 900watt.
You need to adjust the time according to the wattage of your microwave.
One thing I never, not ever,
make in the microwave, is an omelette. That would be a desecration of an omelette.
Good luck. It does work I promise you.
