      I love cooking rice in the microwave after acquired several recipes from the Zaar and this is one of them. I had been looking and rice cookers and steamers and trying to decide what size and brand to buy. But I have a newer microwave with sensor cooking and now I can cook rice to perfection, I just needed the measurements for liquid and rice. Thanks to you and other Zaar members I can cook 1/2 cup dry rice and have fresh cooked rice every time.

      I used jasmine rice and skipped the oil. This worked ok, it's not my favorite way to cook rice, as it tend to boil over and cook as evenly as just using a pot on the stove. Made for PAC Spring '08

      Worked great! I used basmati and a 2 1/2 quart covered casserole. Rice was perfectly cooked with little effort and without heating up the stove. I normally use a rice cooker and the result with this recipe was just as good. Thanks for sharing the method! Made for PAC Fall 2007.

      This is very helpful if you are tight on time, but it's not really perfect. I used a very big casserole dish and it still boiled over a little bit, which is maybe why the rice was a little gummy yet firm. If you make this, use a GIANT dish!

      This works really well. It does boil over if you don't use quite a large bowl. Once I got the bowl size right it became a very easy way to make rice. Thanks.

      I'm always put off using anything that has "Dummies" in the title. However I made this for 'Bourbon Chicken' as hubby wanted rice and I planned to just use bread for that dish. I'm a true believer that microwaves are only to heat things so I was surprised that the rice tasted very good. It was ready in half the time I normally take to steaming rice and it tasted nice. A little firm but still quite palatable. I used long grain rice so next time I may add just a few extra mls of water. Thank you Sally.
