Default Brown rice in the crockpot?

I saw this on the internet and tried it today.

Spray slow cooker with Pam.

Put in cooker:
2 cups brown rice
5 cups water
1/2 teas. salt

Cook on high for 3 hours, without lifting cover.


Okay, keeping in mind that slow cookers vary, I read some reviews where people said it was perfect and some said it was a flop.

I have a 6 quart oval cooker and it was a flop for me. I checked after 2 hours and 15 minutes and the rice was a mushy glop.

I tossed it all (too much rice anyway) and did the 1 cup rice to 2 cups water on the stove top for 35 minutes. Perfect.

Has anyone here done this successfully?

I haven't tried that - I got myself a good rice steamer on ebay years ago, which does brown rice. It sounds hit or miss.

I have never used any kind of rice cooker/steamer. I never have a problem cooking rice on the stove. I always do the 2 parts water to 1 part rice.

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

Never explain yourself. Your friends don't need it and your enemies won't believe it anyway.
