First, when I met my husband I had no idea you had to rinse the rice. Apparently YOU MUST RINSE THE RICE. So. I do. I fill it with water, swish it and drain. Lather rinse repeat. Also, for 1 cup of rice you are supposed to put 1 cup of water. However, I feel it works better to put just over a cup. Or two cups of rice and just over two cups of water. Finally, before you scoop it out, it works best if you get the scoop wet.
Add your rice
