Brown Long Grain Rice Question-Crockpot or Nesco Roaster

I bought a large 1 lb. bag of rice and would like to cook it all at once. It gives instructions for stove top and microwave, however both require cooking 30-40 minutes after bringing water to a boil.

How can I cook this in the crockpot after bringing the water to a boil? I'd like to cook the whole pkg. at one time and divide it up to be used later.

Or would it be better to use my Nesco 18 Quart Roaster?


Thanks.

Anna

I know nothing about the Nesco but you can cook it all at once in your slow cooker. Use a 1 to 4 ratio of rice to water and cook for about 3 hours on high. Should be good. I could not live without a crockpot.

Thanks DeBora

So you are saying for 1 cup dry rice add 3 cups water? And should the water already be boiled or just cold water?

And I love my crockpot too... I have 1 of those and 2 Nesco Roasters.

1 cup rice to 4 cups water. Dump in and cook on high for 3 hours. That's what I love about a crockpot' just dump and go. lol

I've never had Nexco roaster. Is it easy to use?

Never thought of using my Nesco to cook rice. Will remember this!

DeBora the ladies here raved about their Nescos. I now own three. Love them.... if fact I need to buy another 6 or 8 quart one.

what are the advantages to using a Nesco? As you can tell, I don't have one.

I have 2.. one is a different brand but the same thing.

I use it constantly, at least once a week for making large batches of chili, soup, a large ham or turkey.

They are like a crockpot and oven in one and usually range in price around $80-$90 dollars though you can catch them on sale sometimes for $50. They have been around a really long time, I bought a antique one years ago with a big round knob.

You can do crockpot cooking on a large scale, cook turkeys, hams, any large amount of meats.. mine will cook a turkey up to 22-25 lbs. you can also bake bread and cakes in them. Mine is a 18 quart roaster.

Barbzy I know has one as well as several other members on here.. somewhere in the archives there is a section on them.

Thanks for the tips on the rice.

Anna

Jokir, I am like you. I have never owned a Nesco so I too would like to know what is better about it than slow cooking in the oven.

Wondered how the rice turned out cooking it in the crockpot? I have cooked small amounts before, but never that large amount and now am wondering?
