I don't think rice reheats well, even the day after. It's better if I add a little water to the bowl before microwaving, or maybe a half pat of butter or something. Maybe I'm just doing something wrong.

I freeze white rice all the time, except that I use vacuum seal bags to do it with. Doing it this way helps keep out air which can dry it out and make it taste awful.

And it comes out looking and tasting just as fresh as the day that it was cooked!

It won't be the same though. Takes an awful lot of power to do that.

Rice keeps just fine in the fridge for a few days. To reheat, do it in the microwave, covered at a low power.

I think that sounds personal, which I won't get into.

Charlie, you're right, but I think it applies to cooked rice as well as raw, if the rice is in the water too long and is not being cooked yet.

I was tought this in the culinary arts training program. The manual for my rice cooker warns against rice being in the water too long when programming the cooker to cook the rice hours later.

I guess that puts an end to my berating my partner for not allowing me to freeze the leftover rice. I suppose we'll have to find something else to disagree on.
