The folks at The Kitchn write:
When the cooking time is up, remove the pot from the heat and let it sit, covered, for 10 minutes. That's it. During that time, the bottom layer of grains will loosen from the bottom of the pan and can be easily scooped out with the rest.
This means you'll be able to eat that bottom layer of rice, barley, oats or other grains — instead of having to scrub it from your pan. Have any tips for cooking perfect rice or stovetop cooking? Let's hear them in the comments.
