Cooking rice and grains with copper core saucier?

dessay13 | Dec 29, 201505:30 PM     3

Hi everyone! Hubbie and I are budding cooks, and we just treated ourselves to a small All-Clad copper core saucier. I tried cooking jasmine rice in coconut milk in it tonight, and the rice stuck to the bottom and didn't really cook that well. Is this not the right pot for this type of thing?

I also had a hard time getting a simmer to keep and not turn into a boil. I used the biggest burner on our range until I saw that it was really boiling, even on low heat. I transferred it to the tiny burner in the back for the simmer part of the recipe, but it was still boiling when I took the lid off. The same thing has happened when we do quinoa as well. The thing is just really hot even on low heat! It's taking some getting used to. Any advice is appreciated!
