    No need to butter the pan...

    No need to rest rice unless you are making fried rice.
    Ditto, the only thing I add is a pinch of curry powder or five spice if it matches the meal.

    Bring to boil, set to low and cover for ~15 min, cut heat for ~5 more min and it's ready. It only sticks if I seriously neglect it.

      I'm using a basic small rice cooker .

      Done rice last night and still caught at the bottom.

      I'm wondering there's a little hole (0.5cm) with a soft blocker which is push in push out type , if to leave open as it maybe too hot and little top of pan is shaking cos of steam and pressure? Or just to lightly grease the bottom and see.

      But I used 1.5 cups of rice with 3cups of liquid , bone broth / tomato passata (makes rice go red very nice) & water , 3/4 tsp of salt .

        Usually cooking a bigger batch helps... Or a smaller batch. A suboptimal amt of rice in the cooker will result in burnt bottom.

        If you cook a lot of rice I suggest getting a better Japanese rice cooker. American rice cookers just suck. Japanese ones will last you many many uses because it is meant to be used daily.

          That reminds of an Iranian friend of mine: she is able to cook rice in such a way that some of it at the bottom sort of melts but does not burn. It ends up looking like pieces of crepe. It is really tasty when you fry these pieces in duck fat and onions ...

            I think a general rule is always buy Japanese!

              Sticky rice is really good with mangoes too.
              Oh gawsh. This is why I still have a 50 lb rice bag from Costco with the Japanese short grain rice that's pretty sticky. Tooooo many indulgences for that one xD

                Don't really want to buy a bigger rice cooker just yet until I get my new place
