  2. Pour as much rice into the rice cooker removable bowl as you'd like to make. Keep in mind the rice will turn into a little more than double the amount you initially put in.

  3. Using tap water, at the warmest temperature you can stand to stick your entire hand into (please don't burn yourself!), wash the rice by swirling it around in the bowl. You will notice the water is cloudy.

  4. Drain the water and repeat until the water runs clear when you strain it.

  5. Using your little finger as a guide (unless you have a really tiny pinkie finger, then use your ring finger), fill up the drained rice in the rice cooker bowl until it hits your second knuckle on your pinkie finger. Funny, I know. But it works every time.

  6. Important! - When you measure the water using the "finger method", you want the tip of your little finger touching the surface of the rice, NOT the bottom of the bowl. Measure from there.

  7. Make sure your rice cooker bowl is dry on the outside, and place into your rice cooker. Hit the start button, and you'll have lots of wonderful sticky rice when you are finished!
