The rice came out right for me because I use 3 cups water, 1cup brown rice and 1 tsp salt and simmer until all the water was absorbed.

I am rating this only 3 stars because my rice still has a little crunch to it. It is better than all the other recipes I've tried, but I just can't get the rice to be completely cooked through. I followed the directions to the letter. Thanks for posting, unfortunately I need to keep searching though.
