comment Understanding the steps to prepare sushi rice
About closing the question: help me make it more specific. Should I ask "does somethink like the canonical steps of Peter Reinhart for bread exists for rice?"

I didn't expect you would take the rollback of the edit personally, I did it so other people will read what I wrote and not focus on that specific part. In fact, after the reorganization of your last edit it looks much better, except for the specifics, which I wasn't looking for and just gave as an specific example. I'd suggest to remove that part. Then, if you address the resting period(s), I read they matter in beyondsalmon.com/2006/02/… I will have nothing else to ask for

Rolling back the edit because I'm not looking for answers to any of the details, I want the same thing Peter Reinhart did for bread: a list of steps that all recipes follow using different techniques. I'll adapt to my circumstances once I understand what and why I have to do in each step

comment Understanding the steps to prepare sushi rice
@Jefromi I appreciate your help, but please don't take the specific example of my stove as my general problem. Sometimes, I just use the oven. When I had gas, I had no problem in that step. In any case, for me, those are different techniques for the step of getting the rice to absorb the water. Acidifying the rice is another step, you want the rice to be safe and tasting, each vinegar combination gets you something in each direction. There are more steps: a resting period after the inital soaking, a resting period after steaming... I'm looking for that list detailed. Is it a bit clearer now?

@Yamikuronue My question is not "how do I make sushi rice", my question is "understanding the steps to prepare sushi rice". I think I should change it to something else because it's not clear what I want. I don't want a recipe or the techniques Jefromi is detailing

This is a a good answer addressing some techniques, but not what I'm looking for. My current kitchen is glass ceramic en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glass-ceramic#Cooktops which holds a lot of heat and I can't keep the lid on. So I'm looking for ways to keep it simmering on low heat (oven, different burner, hot water from a kettle and have the low heat ready, etc). It would help knowing why the low heat is necessary. If the problem with the lid is that water escapes, I could put more water, couldn't I? But that's talking about techniques. I'm looking about what I want to accomplish in each step.
