I have a rice cooker and I'm not impressed. Even if you add extra water, the rice is dry. I went back to cooking it on the stove.Parboiled rice actually has much more nutrition than normal white rice as the steaming process actually pushes nutrients from the husk into the grain. I often make rice in a really quick and likely less nutritious manner by boiling and I'm not speaking of parboiled rice. I read about it on some Bangladeshi lady's blog... you boil normal rice in a lot of water for around 7 mins than stain and let sit for a few minutes before fluffing and it comes out really nice and fluffy this way. I should probably get a rice cooker for the amount of rice we eat but I already have enough crap in our small kitchen.
