anticuchos, I do not think it really matters much, but I have only used a rice cooker once or twice so I am not the best person to answer this. I really do not think it would matter though.
I've really only used the cooker once for rice, and that was about a few years ago. So a rice cooker is not something that I'd use on a daily basis. It's not healthy for diabetics, you know.
But it's usually the pot that I'm about to cook the rice in on the stove. Three or more times until the water is almost clear.
This is also a good practice for diabetics such as myself because it helps get rid of all that excess starch. And I usually cook no more than about a cup of rice - which is what 1/2 a cup of raw rice comes to with the water (1 cup).
This is so that I'm not tempted to eat too much rice, which will raise the glucose level a bit too high.
There ARE small rice cookers, but to make good use of them, I'd have to use them almost every day. Again, not good for diabetics.
