On behalf of the rice cooker
Why not get yourself a cheap rice cooker?
I'm amazed at how few people have a rice cooker.
For less than $40, you can buy a kitchen appliance you'll use every day, that will save you time and money and effort and help you eat better.
This has nothing at all to do with my area of expertise, which is a good reason to take my word for it. Try it for a week and you'll see.
Sometimes, useful tools aren't complicated. This is one of those times.
The thing about rice
It takes time to cook.
It takes talent to do it right.
And a rice cooker solves both problems.
(that's not quite a haiku, but hey)
It doesn't really matter which one you choose
I picked this one, the Aroma, because it's pretty cheap, it's highly rated and it's cheap.
8 cups is just the right size, by the way, unless you're always cooking for one. That's because you can close the cooker and the rice will be just fine the next day.
I'm such an addict I have one with fuzzy logic, but that's merely affectation.
The most expensive one I could find
Consider purchasing for your spouse... instead of jewelry or concert tickets, perhaps.
One last thought
Brown rice is the way to go.
