Alright guys, In my europoor country rice in boil-in-bags is really popular amongts students.
In my dorm we have some exchange students (Turkey, Italy, Spain, Russia) and I am guessing they don't have such things in their countries because they tear up the bags and cook the rice normally.
>tl;dr do you have rice in bags ready to boil in your country/state/whatever? is it popular?
I have $20 rice cooker that lets me program it to have rice ready at any point in the next 12 hours. Time isn't an issue. And why the fuck are you even posting on a cooking board if measuring water is a hassle for you?

Because we aren't retards, and know how to cook rice without the need for a plastic baggy.
I am not saying it is a great way to cook rice.. I am just saying its rather normal to see someone cook rice like that to me.
And I am interested in the way people from other countries see it
As convenience / retard-proofing taken too far.
You can only screw up rice one of two ways.
1. too little or way too much water
2. too much heat
Now me, since I'm never making just plain rice, I'd need to cut the bag open.
>cook rice in a pot the normal way
>mother sees it and eats some
>"wow anon this is great how did you make this not using a bag?"
>"isn't cooking it in a bag the only way to cook it?"
Are people really just too retarded to buy a decent bag of rice and use the pasta method?
It's the exact same amount of effort and you're getting better quality rice that isn't cooked with fucking plastic.
retarded AND lazy. boil in a bag rice is for people like my parents, people who need food you can't fuck up. It's mostly something like "boil this amount of water, put the thing in, set a timer for so many minutes, take it out of the boiling water" food.
'murrican here, admittedly not having read the thread.
The only time I've bought, or even seen, boil in bag rice was when I spent a year in France and got sick of trying to cook rice on the electric element thing in my tiny apartment.
I honestly don't know if this exists in the States, but from my experience it's not much different than instant/microwave rice.
i normally takes the rice out too, not because i don't know how to boil them in a plastic back, i just really think it's unhealthy and i like my rice without plastic
i'm not from a country where rice bags don't exist, but they are though very very expensive compared to normal rice, so i'm very surprised that students eat that instead of saving money and boil proper rice
Seems pretty lazy for an already easy dish. Honestly this reminds me of a "what does /ck/ think about frozen tv dinners?" Kinda thread.
Why people post this stuff on /ck/ I will never understand.
I live in Indiana, work at a grocery store, boil in bag rice is our worst selling white/brown rice.
