Hmmmmmmmm . . . actuallly, I had a microwave oven. It sat on the counter and took up space for about three months without ever being used. So I boxed it up and put it in storage. Microwaves don't "cook" so much as they heat-up stuff.
Nonetheless, this microwave rice thingie seems to produce good stuff. A mix of medium grain brown, Basamati (?) and wild rice.
And now you have me looking at a conventional rice cooker! Because I don't do the microwave, and I don't do the boiling pot on the stove. Moved here about two yrs ago, and I haven't been eating rice. There's been plenty of other stuff on the menu.
