How to Cook Perfect Rice

by Oliver Finch

A super simple trick to make perfect rice every time!


  • Rice
  • A sauce pan with a lid
  • Water
  • Salt
  • And oven, preferably convection
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Ok, so you need to know the ratio of rice to water, plus the three types or rice. Youve got short, medium, and long grain. The short ratio is 1 cup of rice to 1 1/4 cups water. Thats what im using

    Step 2

    Medium grain rice is 1 : 1 1/2 Long is 1 : 1 3/4 Thats rice to water ratio Also preheat your oven to 375 with the fan on, or 400 for a non convection oven

    Step 3

    Combine your rice and water in the proper ratio. I had 3 cups of rice, and this is short grain, so 3 3/4 cups of water.

    Step 4

    Bring to a hard boil

    Step 5

    Put a lid on it and stick it in the oven. For 17 minutes!! Exactly. Come to think of it, ive never used this with a conventional oven. Lemme know how it works! Should be alright at 400

    Step 6

    Take it out. Let it sit for 2 minutes with the lid on!

    Step 7

    Take off the lid and fluff. Done!
