I have used my pressure cooker to cook my brown rice for years, but now I'm
looking into rice cookers because I want to be able to pressure cook while
my rice is cooking. :-) Also, we want to be able to travel with it.
I'm looking for the larger kind that can have a dish of steaming veggies
stacked on top, and I want either a non-stick or stainless rice container,
but I'm having trouble finding one locally. Any specific models or
mail-order sources? I saw a Hitachi once that may have been ideal, but
didn't have time to really look at it.
I don't know if this is a big rice no-no, but I've been presoaking my brown
rice (and also my wild rice) before cooking. It cuts the cooking time
down and seems to cook more evenly. I had a bag of elderly brown rice that
had hidden in the back of the pantry, and this eliminated the problems I
was having with it.
I'm still guessing at the ideal soaking and cooking times.
