I just got the rice cooker and tried it out. It was the worst rice I have ever had :( . I followed the instructions 1C rice to 2C water. I did 2C rice and 4C water. I also added a couple Tablespoons italian seasoning for flavor. I cooked it 5 min on high and 15 minutes med. I still had A LOT of water left. Cooked it 5 more minutes high and 10 minutes med. the water was gone but what I had was just one big ball of sticky rice. There was no fluffyness to it. I used regular rice and have a 900 watt micro. What did I do wrong??????

I usually put 1c rice to 2c water and cook on High for 15minutes. Let set for 5 minutes and done.

I do this with the rice a roni also. Everytime I follow the directions on the box, the rice is over cooked or undercooked.

I know with the long grained Uncle Bens rice the directions for 6 servings are 1 1/2 cups rice and 3 1/3 cups water. 10 minutes on HIGH and 20 minutes at 50%. Mine is perfect everytime!

Did you use minute rice or regular rice? We use the minute rice (easier for me) and I use the large micro cooker and with the directions on the box I get perfect rice all the time. I have never tried using "real" rice before though...hope you got it figured out!!

I think it's a matter of finding the perfect time for your microwave. I had to try quite a few times to figure out the perfect time in my microwave since it is so old. I make sure to tell all of my customers who buythis product that. Not that they try it once and think the product is no good. Everyone's microwave is different.

I used it the other night for the first time. My water was gone, but it was some very sticky rice. Still tasted good though, and I usually use stock instead of water for more flavor.

I've had extra water before and just poured it out. The rice was done still. I also cook mine on high for 15 minutes. And I've cooked as much as 8 cups before. My husband is very particular about his rice and loves the way it comes out with the Rice Cooker Plus. Just keep trying different times. But if it's sticky, it's been cooked too long. And don't be afraid to pour some water out. You can always add more if it's not done.

Hope that helps
