Learning how to cook rice is like riding a bike. Once you know how to make rice that's perfectly fluffy every time, you easily repeat the process over and over and wonder how your rice ever turned out any differently. Rice—whether white, or brown, or any other kind you prefer—is a staple in countless dishes, so knowing how to make it yourself is a pretty important skill.

To master the cooking feat once and for all and make sure your water-to-rice ratio is always on point, follow our simple steps below and you’ll never wonder how to cook rice on the stove again.
