      Thanks. Try it out, and let me know how it goes. It does take a little practice to get the water and timing *exactly* right as even minor variations in the pan, the length of time you saute the rice, etc. will change the time it takes to fully cook. I'm just now getting the hang of it and I've been trying to learn how to cook rice for years LOL. But the secret to delicious rice is to work on that timing, and then you can *leave it alone* while it's cooking. If you have to lift the lid to take a peak... whatever you do, don't stir it. :-)
