Great video! Cheat sheet! LOL But HOW much RICE???
September 5, 2009, 3:53 pm
Oh, nevermind, I rewatched the video. I dont measure my rice like that since I use Jasmine Rice and it measures out the same as Brown. Gotcha!

Some rice cookers have a brown rice cooking mode so you don't have to make adjustments and constantly monitor it. www.brownricecookersite.com

Good tip Morgan. Thank you.

Thanks for the info! I was just wondering where to get a rice cooker just what I saw in the video. I'm interested to get one because I like things made from stainless steel and not the teflon type. I'm from Canada BC. Thanks. Marlene

Hi Marlene, Hereís a link to what we used. It's in our online Amazon store. http://astore.amazon.com/cookusinterr-20/detail/B000I5UEQM Links to this product are also in the recipe above.

I love your site! Have you got any information on germinating brown rice?
April 9, 2010, 9:12 am
Jira, If you google germinated brown rice there are lots of sites that explain how to do it. Some nutritionists feel that soaking and sprouting grains make them more digestible, more nutritious.

I have KRUPS Rice cooker and it has three modes Rice Cooking, Slow Cooking and Steam Cooking. I was not sure which one to select for Brown rice so I selected Steam Cooking for 45 minutes. This is the first time cooking bronw rice in a Rice cooker. I think I selected the wrong mode. Please help, should have I selected Rice Cooking instead of the Steam cooking? Thank you!

Hi Gloria, I have never used a KRUPS cooker so I canít give you any definitive answers. I would definitely try the Rice Cooking mode. The only difference between brown rice and white rice is that you sometimes need a little more water with the brown rice (because it has more fiber).
August 13, 2010, 8:35 am
Just in case you're wondering, the amount of water seems to be cups of rice, divided by 2, times 3. So, 3 cups divided by two is 1.5. 1.5 X 3 is 4.5. So you can figure it out like that.
August 17, 2010, 7:50 am
Dan - You are correct. You can also just multiply the amount of rice by 1.5 to get the same amount (the amount of water needed).
September 10, 2010, 4:20 pm
Thank you Dan and Casey for making the math simpler. I'll change the recipe to match!

My Miracle rice cooker just arrived and I cooked wheat berries in it. Besides this and rice, what other whole grains would work?
September 18, 2010, 5:08 pm
Luisa, millet, barley, steel cut oats, farro should all do well in the rice cooker. You may need to find just the right water/grain ratio so have patience.

I had been searching the kind of rice clicker I need to purchase. I had the Tiger brand but the rice lasts for only like 5 hours & seems soiled right away. I am interested of the jorushi brand but too expensive. Can you help me?
September 23, 2012, 7:54 am
Hi Chita, If you look at the recipe under the video you'll see a picture of a rice cooker and a link to the Miracle Rice Cooker. It is the brand I use. Regardless, I find that rice from a rice cooker needs to be eaten right away. It seems to dry out faster than rice that has been cooked on the stove.

OK--that girl is funny! She could have her own TV show.
October 19, 2013, 6:14 am
Horrible video, she doesn't even know what she is doing, very annoying girl, waste of 2 and a half minutes.

Recently cut out rice and grains completely. End up carrying too much water weight. Recommend it to anyone. Jake http://www.blenderorjuicer.com

Brown rice. Go to package directions for amount of water pet cup of brown rice. Use the rice cooker cups and then use same cups to measure water just as package instructions say. My rice came out great. All rice is different and package directions are the way to go using the small cups that come with rice cooker. I make quinoa that way too.

Very nice and simple. You are the first who wrote this recipe that I can understand :-) Now I can do it very fast for my family in Redmond 4502 multicooker! Thank you so much!
December 21, 2014, 2:27 am
You are hilarious. I think I'm in love. :)

My rice was still hard!!!
June 24, 2015, 7:40 pm
Slyvia, I'm thinking you got the settings just a bit off. There's some rice cooker instructions over on http://www.nmhmf.org/ if you'd like to take a look. That might help.
August 6, 2015, 3:26 pm
OK, I found this page on a google search. I watched a few more of your videos, cuz the first one was, well, a little odd. Then I figured out what you folks are doing. Can I say genius? Can I say fun? Can I say I wanna party with you all?
February 23, 2016, 4:39 pm
Jay,We definitely want to party with you.

i was wondering if you could give me any instructions on how to adapt this for high altitude. thanks

Just saw your brown rice in rice cooker video. Were you using USA cups or those smaller cups that come with the rice cooker? I need to end up with 6 cups of cooked brown rice, so should I use 2 USA standard measure cups of rice and 3 standard measure cups of water and ignore the lines on the cooker?

I disagree with Pat's calculations for cooking 1 cup of rice. Normally, a smaller amount of grain needs an upward adjustment in the proportion of water. (Think oatmeal.) Here's a recommendation I found: Brown, long grain - 2 1/4 cups of water per 1 cup of rice (520 mL water per 240 mL rice)
August 1, 2017, 6:52 pm
Can we omit the salt?
August 23, 2017, 9:33 pm
Hey Sean, Of course you can omit salt. But it's important to know what the salt does! It helps the grain open up and brings out the sweetened of the grain. Without salt, whole grains can taste pretty flat.
