Ok, so you need to know the ratio of rice to water, plus the three types or rice. Youve got short, medium, and long grain. The short ratio is 1 cup of rice to 1 1/4 cups water. Thats what im using

Medium grain rice is 1 : 1 1/2  Long is  1 : 1 3/4  Thats rice to water ratio  Also preheat your oven to 375 with the fan on, or 400 for a non convection oven

Combine your rice and water in the proper ratio. I had 3 cups of rice, and this is short grain, so  3 3/4 cups of water.
