    Its never the same but you can put a bit of water in it and stick it in the microwave or pot and it should make it edible for a day or so longer.

    Get a rice cooker. What I do is add the water, rice, EVOO, and a little broth, take a shower, and it's usually done. I do this 2-3x/week in the mornings.

    I actually tried cooking my rice in my pressure cooker recently.. It seems to last a day or so longer before drying out like my rice cooker. Or I'm just crazy.

    Mine dries out after like a day or two. I recently started eating Uncle ben's natural brown rice cups instead and it's way better. 45 sec in the micro and you've got a good single serving of rice.
