have tried searching for answer on here, but no luck.I could be doing something wrong, so decided to ask instead.

I'm sure you can, but I don't know how. I used to do the edmonds steamed rice.Now I have a tupperware microwave one (20 mins and perfect for 2 Adults and 3 kids) not sure what I'll do when kids eat more. go back to the steaming way I guess.Bascially 2x water to rice, bring to the boil, then turn off and leave 'till ready.

That's the way I make it.Tried the rice cookers and the microwave but this is the best way by far for us.Never fails.

Great. Would bread bake in one or not hot enough!

amasser check out 'slow cooker bread' in the search option - top left of the thread - go for 'posted over last year'. I make bread in the slow cooker often but am away from home recipes so can't tell you exactly how to do it. Will look later & post if you can't find what you want.

Sounds a good way to do itnik12 and kiwitrish.Does it make it a light fluffy rice, have one in the family that doesn't like it firm almost likes it overcooked.Thanks for your imput so far.

Have never tried cooking rice in a slow cooker but I bought a microwave rice cooker a week or so ago for about $15 and it is great! Lovely fluffy rice, not sticky or burnt ;-)
