comment What's the simplest method to cook rice?
@Aaronut - understood. my apologies. the original question stressed "fail safe", so i felt a rice cooker qualified, since it's the ONLY "foolproof" way i've found. it has become an essential a tool in my own kitchen, and is no more specialized to me than a knife or a toaster oven.

comment What's the simplest method to cook rice?
i'll echo Thursagan. just get a rice cooker -- there is no other way i've found that is as foolproof. as for enumerating the process by which it's better, i have no idea. i consider it magic. but if you want rice that fits your qualifications, seriously... get a rice cooker.

comment How can I get more umami in a veggie burger?
i'm sure it's quite similar to maggi. MSG is basically the same thing -- all natural and umami.
