Rice Cookers - Brown Rice

mobiledynamics | Feb 5, 201808:48 AM     5

? for all you rice cookers who cook brown rice in your rice cooker....Cooking Brown Rice in a rice cooker seems to be the norm for many. Tips/Secrets ?

We have the Zoji IH model but I tend to prefer cook brown rice in a regular pot on the stovetop.

Maybe I'm doing it all wrong, but cleaning up the rice cooker post brown rice cooking is one helluva starchy mess. Granted the 3 components uptop come out pretty easily (upper gasket/vent gasket/silicone seal), but cleaning out that *ball* when it's all dried and starch residue is quite the chore.

Am I doing this all wrong or it is what it is , when cooking BR in a rice cooker
