Rice cooker brown rice

Dax | Jan 20, 201212:54 PM     47

I bought an Aroma fuzzy logic rice cooker from Costco some time back and I swear i can't make properly cooked brown rice (on the brown rice setting or quick setting) . It always comes out mushy. Typically I buy bags or sometimes from the bulk at wholefoods. I didn't think you had to wash brown rice much these days but maybe I'm wrong? I cook the dry rice with the amount of water and/or broth indicated and sometimes add a touch of oil to keep it from frothing up too much to clog the the pressure/steam thing at the top.

Any ideas what I'm doing wrong besides eating brown rice which is pretty darn boring?
