There are many benefits to cooking rice in a commercial microwave oven. Cooking rice in a microwave is much faster and more convenient than using a stovetop – all you have to do is set your microwave, let the rice cool, and it’s ready for your guests to enjoy! Cooking rice in the microwave also results in less clean-up, as it only requires one cooking dish. Keeping in mind all these benefits, here is how you can use your commercial microwave oven to cook rice perfectly every time:
Step 1: Measure Out Rice And Water Into A Microwave-Safe Dish
Measure out one cup of rice and pour it into a microwave-safe dish. Be sure to always check that your microwave cookware is actually microwave-safe before cooking. Metal objects and some plastics can’t be used in a microwave and can cause damage to the microwave and the dish. The dish should be able to hold at least 1.5 litres when cooking one cup of rice. Next, add in two cups of cold water, which should fully cover the rice.
Step 2: Place The Rice In Your Commercial Microwave Oven
Put the microwave-safe dish containing the rice and water into your microwave. Make sure to place a lid lightly on top of the dish, but do not seal. This allows room for steam to escape during the cooking process. Microwave the rice for 10 minutes, or until most of the water has disappeared from the dish. If there is still a substantial amount of water left inside the dish, continue microwaving in 1-minute increments until the water has been absorbed by the rice.
Step 3: Remove the Rice And Let It Sit
Carefully remove the dish from the microwave. Let the rice sit, still covered, for about 3 to 5 minutes. At this point, your rice should be perfectly cooked, but check to ensure that the rice is at your desired texture. If it’s still a bit crunchy, add more water and place the rice back in your commercial microwave, and microwave it at 1-minute increments until the desired level of tenderness has been achieved.
