    I don't see a problem with doing basmati......though it's not one I've done in the RCP. So I'm not positive.

    A customer bought the rice cooker and wants to return it since the directions on it say to only use rice that have microwave directions. Hmm... how do you do basmati in the microwave? How much water/how many minutes?

    I guess I should have her at least try to make it in the micro to see what happens.

    I remember a while back there being a discussion....and the out come was ONLY use rice that has microwave instructions besides regular ones. the reason being that the rice can heat up too much and cause a fire-

    I've cooked Jasmine rice in it. I don't see why basmati wouldn't work!

    I only cook 'grains' in my RCP. As far as I know, none of the 'grains' I buy have microwave instructions which would be no different than a non-micro rice.

    I have been buying the big burlap bag of Basmati rice at Sams since the rice cooker came out!! It is wonderful!!! My girls have even been known to cook some for a snack, (loaded of course with brown sugar)!!!
