            The heat of the water cooks the rice. The burner only heats the water, which distributes its heat evenly through the rice. The burner isn't even on for the majority of the time.

              yes the burner is on for the majority of the time, it's just not on high.

              And yes, the heat of the water cooks the rice, but the water isn't uniformly heated throughout, and the upper sides of the pot will cool much faster than the bottom center directly where the heat is applied.

              A multi-zone IH pressure rice cooker can heat the entire bowl to a constant pressure/temp throughout and hold it there for an extended period with a great deal of precision.

I've always wanted to get the elephant one from Japan, but damn....$700 for a rice cooker? I could buy a lot of stuff at Home Depot for that amount of money, which in turn will make me more money. I'd understand if you had a big family and tons of people coming over all the time, but it's just my dried up old wife and me. Maybe when the grandkids come. Frick I almost wish they had like a rental you could take home so you could try it out...because I'm pretty sure if I did that I'd end up buying one. The new NEW ones supposedly have "AI" so as long as you put more water than you need, it'll remove the excess water by separating it and then steaming it out, and if you put less water than required it'll still come out pretty good.

    It's definitely not a meme appliance. At least the Korean one I had was fricking amazing.

      $50 rice cooker is a essentially just a tiny slowcooker with no heat settings unless you found a really good deal. zojirushi/tiger/cuckoo etc. using fuzzy logic or other tech have moisture sensors to cook the rice properly and tons of settings for different rice types.

        No, they're saying you can't make AS good rice. Not that the rice is shit, or you make bad rice. Simply if you're making it in a pot on the stove, it isn't going to be as good as a rice cooker can do.

        It's still rice, and it's fine, but pretending it's as good, or BETTER than a rice cooker is moronic and simply bullshit.

            The $20 "dumb" rice cookers you're correct, they're more or less just an electric pot that heats the water/rice in a similar way to your stove top. But once you get to fuzzy logic rice cookers, and especially when you get into the multi-zone IH with pressure and fuzzy logic and AI shit, you're simply not going to beat that level of precision control since it can make fine adjustments based on that particular batch of rice at that particular ambient temp, humidity, etc.

                You not CARING about how good your rice is because in your eyes cooked rice is cooked rice, doesn't mean better rice than what you can make doesn't exist, it just means you don't fricking care, which again, fine. Just don't expect me to take you seriously when I know for a fact from my own professional kitchen experience, you're simply wrong. You can make great rice in a pot, and it still wont beat the consistency you can get from a rice cooker.

                Some autistic japanese traditionalists will argue iron pot rice over a real fire is better than a rice cooker when done by a proper master who has spent literal YEARS training how to make rice, but I can't speak to that as I'm not autistic enough and just spend a few hundred bucks on a rice cooker that is gonna be more consistent and 99% as good, and still always better than your stovetop rice.

                You just need a fuzzy logic rice cooker at around $150, you don't NEED to step up to the IH or better units, those just do a little bit better for each successive price bump.

                If you eat rice once a week, $150 is like $0.25 per use over a decade. If you eat rice 2-3x a week then it's just a few pennies. If you eat rice daily it's easy enough to justify hundreds of dollars for something you'll be using for years to come.

                If you don't regularly eat rice, then by all means use an instant pot or a pressure cooker, but if you DO eat rice all the time, you're just having some autistic hangup if you honestly don't see a value in a rice cooker.

                Yeah i guess this 4 Micheline starred restaurant just has copper cookware for aesthetics and they just use aluminium pans for the real cooking.

                no anon you don't understand, they're hiding the aluminium in the back from the cameras, once the camera leaves they stop cooking on copper and bring the aluminium back out then send the copper back to the store they rented it from.

    Actually, cooking it in a pot is the objectively correct way.
    Specifically:
    >wash rice
    >add to pot with plenty of boiling water in it, like it's pasta
    >return to boil
    >cover and simmer for 25-30 minutes depending on desired firmness
    >drain
    >immediately return to pot and cover
    >let sit/steam for 10 minutes
    >it's done
    When you drain the water, you drain out about 60% of the arsenic in the rice with it.

              Unless you lab test your own rice, you do not know how much arsenic it has in it.
              If you consume rice regularly, especially brown rice, it is a no-brainer from a health standpoint to use the cook like pasta/drain method.

              > Inorganic arsenic species are more toxic than methylated forms to humans. We found here that the inorganic arsenic concentration in the grain of Japanese rice cultivars did not exceed 0.3mgkg−1, even when the total arsenic concentration reached levels of more than 3mgkg−1. If a Japanese person weighing 53.5kg consumes an average of 160g of rice per day and the maximum concentration of inorganic arsenic in the grain is presumed to be 0.3mgkg−1, then the calculated intake of inorganic arsenic from rice would be 0.9µgkg−1 BW per day. This value is a possible maximum intake of inorganic arsenic from rice; 0.48µgkg−1 BW per day or less would be a reasonable average value for arsenic intake from rice by the Japanese people because of MAFF's average total arsenic value of 0.16mgkg−1 in brown rice. Regardless, both values are far less than the current BMDL 0.5.

              > Taken together, these findings suggest that arsenic health risk need not be taken into account in the choice of rice cultivars in Japan; instead, field management practices such as water management are very important factors for controlling total arsenic accumulation in Japanese rice.

                I don't need every batch to be tested because the factors that introduce arsenic into the rice is the water and the soil, all of which aren't going to change from season to season.

                Japanese rice on the whole is super low in aresenic due to the soil in japan not having much arsenic and the water japan uses being quite clean as well.

    >Brown your rice in the butter with some finely chopped onions.
    >When the rice is almost done browning, stir in some garlic and herbs. Let them cook long enough to become fragrant.
    >Now you're finally ready to cook the rice, but don't add water!
    >Instead boil the rice in chicken broth!

    I was quite satisfied with how I cooked rice on the stovetop
    >wash rice until satisfied, usually 6 times
    >fill pot with water until water reaches knuckle of finger over the rice
    >bring to boil asap
    >reduce to faintest of simmers, wait 15 minutes
    consistently delicious.

    Then I moved and a friend said I needed a rice cooker. I said no, I don't. She said yes I did, and that she was buying one for me as a housewarming gift. I relented and she got me one.

    Holy. Shit. I am now fully on board, and use this little motherfricker all the time. It's not even anything fancy, was like $30 or something. But goddamn does it make delicious sticky rice.
