Are you talking about a rice cooker? The first time I made mine in my rice cooker it came out crunchy.... I finally figured out that I needed to add more water. So I will add 1 cup uncooked rice and 3 cups of water instead of 1 cup of rice and 2 cups of water (if I were making it on the stove top). I hope this helps!!!! You can soak it too, but this is more of a short cut.
