I have been happily using the Cook's Illustrated method of cooking brown rice in the oven for quite a while now with usually spectacular results but the other night, pressed for time, I thought "wonder if it would work in the microwave?". The answer is a resounding 'NO!'

It literally took twice as long and twice as much water in the microwave. The rice was good when it came out (a bit more sticky which I like) but not even remotely worth it.
