help me cook rice

I inherited this rice cooker but cannot figure out what buttons to use to make regular short grain Asian rice. I thought it was the large one on the right but the rice is gross and uncooked yet soggy. Can you help? I looooove rice and need to remedy fast. Thanks for your help. Can you tell me what all of these buttons mean? I can't find a mode number so I can't look up the operating instructions online.

help us replace boxed rice with rice cooker recipes

Hi, me and mrs.chasles and the two littlest chasleses all eat rice, and how! we cook a LOT of white rice in the rice cooker but for flavored rice (think uncle bens type stuff) we switch to the boxes. they are great and savory but very high in sodium and quite a bit more expensive than white rice in the cooker. so how do we migrate from boxed to recipes in the rice cooker (or slow cooker)? the flavors we usually buy are like chicken and herb, wild mushroom, that sort of thing. nothing cheesey etc. In other words is it as simple as "throw some mushrooms in with the rice" or do we need to get more complex? Now with the background out of the way here is the question distilled down: how do we get that intense creamy flavor in a rice cooker? we are both good in the kitchen, so complexity or make-in-advance are all ok for us! thanks for helping!

Can someone please explain why baby rice cereal goes sloppier rather than thicker over time?

I am currently feeding my baby rice cereal (just powdered rice) which I mix with a little hot water and breast milk into a sort of thick goop however I have noticed that if I leave it for around five or so minutes it begins to turn into a much runnier almost liquid consistency. I would have thought it would have got thicker over time. Could someone please explain why this happens?

Chewy rice?

How do I get that soft, chewy consistency to the rice I make at home? I'm thinking about the consistency of the rice in bibimbap - or to get really specific, the rice at Astor Mediterranean in Washington, DC. [more inside]

Tuna recipe from Italy?

I recall eating a meal in Italy that I THINK was just rice, canned tuna, and white beans drizzled in olive oil. Is this a real "dish"? I've put those four ingredients together and it doesn't taste the same. And it's a really monochromatic meal. Anyone have any thoughts on the "real" dish, or if not, how to spice up the one I remember? It was in Parma.

Can't we all just get along?

Can I successfully cook brown and white rice together? The plan is to use a steamer with a 50/50 mix of the 2 varieties. If so, could you suggest a methodology? I prefer the brown, but I have a partial bag of white that I don't want to throw away.
