comment Stopping water from bubbling over when cooking rice
Rice retailed in the developed world is not "dried-on-the-side-of-the-highway dirty". It would be illegal to sell it in such a state.

Added "in the USA" since Safeway is a trading name elsewhere, not using the Lucerne brand.

Yours is just about par-frying. I broadened it (for @SAJ14SAJ ) to encompass any kind of pre-preparation.

Some misconceptions in the comments. Espresso machines do not push steam through the grounds. They push nearly-boiling water through the grounds at high pressure. Steam is usually, but not always, used to generate the pressure. I agree that an aeropress won't generate the same pressure, but it may be an adequate compromise.

comment Is there any difference between cheap and expensive vodka?
Generally a great answer; I have upvoted. But: most vodka nowadays is made from grain, not potatoes. Supermarket own brand vodka can be very good. I personally find Asda Export Strength Vodka to be smoother than Smirnoff Red (Asda being a British supermarket).

comment How can I make this wine and bacon sauce into a thick liquid?
This "recipe" doesn't promise a thick, spreadable sauce. It says "reduce until it's a runny sauce consistence".
