Serves: 4

Prep Time: 5 mins

Cook Time: 9 mins


  • 1 cup long-grain white rice
  • 1.5 cups water


  1. Add rice to the casserole and rinse rice until the water runs clear/opaque (depending on your preference). Discard rinsing water. Measure and add 1.5 cups water to the rice in the casserole.
  2. Cover with lid. Microwave the casserole on high power for about 9 minutes.
  3. Let the cooker sit for a few minutes before opening. Stir and fluff the rice with a spatula or fork before serving.

    This looks interesting! I just bought similar one earlier and can’t wait to try it. Will start using it instead of rice cooker if the rice turns out well :)

      It’s not safe to use metal inside microwave oven. You can try with microwave-safe glass bowls, instead.
