If you really followed the directions, then the problem is with your microwave manufacturer, or your bowl, not the recipe poster. And stop cursing. You aren’t two years old – feeling angry doesn’t give you a pass for acting as though you are.

This recipe has been fully tested, not just by myself, but from the test kitchens of one of the largest rice brands in the U.S.

Ten minutes not only ruined the rice–completely roasted–but ruined our microwave. There is nothing wrong with stove top cooking. Never had a problem with my brown rice on the stove-top. Now, who can fix my micro-wave????

Both are consistent. Uncovered for 10 minutes on high. Covered for 20 minutes at 50% power.

Your video says cook uncovered for 10 minutes and then reduce to medium power for 20 minutes, but you didn’t say you covered it in the video only that to cook uncovered gently cooks the outer layer etc. .
Your written directions say to cover it when you reduce the power as suggested by someone at Mahatma. But on Mahatma’s website, they recommend microwaving it uncovered for the additional 20 minutes. So confusing…

I ended up cooking it uncovered for the last 25 minutes ( 2 c of rice and 6 cups of water) and there was a lot of water, so I drained it and put the rice back in the pot and let it steam for 10 minutes and it was great.
So please clarify whether to cover or uncover in the last 20 minutes. Thank you!!

Rice can cook differently, especially the age of the rice. In areas where rice is a primary staple, you’ll often see “New Crop” on some packaging, meaning that the rice requires less water than older rice.
