  1. I hate boiling rice all the time, it sticks to the pot and clean up is a bitch. Anyway to store massive amounts of cooked rice (5 days worth) somehow that still leaves them tasting good.

    Buy a rice cooker.

    I use it every day. Add 3 cups rice, 4 cups water, press the button, do something for 20 minutes, come back and eat. Clean up is a snap so I really don't mind using it every day.
     
  3. on a 1-10 scale, how much easier is it than a pot and pan.

    You can freeze it if you want. What I do is make a lot an then keep out what I will eat in about 3 days. The rest I put in zip lock bags. I then take the bags out when i need them and boil some water and drop the frozen brick in the water to melt and refresh.

    I buy 50lb bags of nishiki brand brown rice from the asian supermarket. The water/rice ratio is a little different than for white rice, but it still takes 20 minutes to cook at the most.

    I'd put pot and pan at about a 6, and rice cooker at maybe a 1.5. It really makes things so much easier for me since I eat several cups of rice everyday.

    If your rice sticks to the pot then you're doing it wrong, and that's just sad.
    Call mommy or get a wife.
    Rice does not store well.

    Same here.

    I also find that rice sticking to the bottom is inevitable..but if you leave it to soak for 45 mins or so it's easy to clean.

    It is. I usually give it a good stir midway through to keep it from burning on the bottom.

    If you let the rice cooker cool a bit before you try to scoop anything out less sticks.

    If you want to store it: With the rice still hot, put in an airtight container (freezer wrap would work best to remove air) and throw it in the freezer. It microwaves well and tastes nearly as good as fresh.

    rice cooker is a waste of money/space IMO. Really isn't much easier to clean up than a pot.

    my whole family eats rice everyday and a rice cooker is much more easier/convient that using a large pot. rice is good up to 48 hours in the steamer once its fully cooked.

    I just cook 4 or 5 servings in a pot at once, eat my serving and stick the rest in a tupperware and fridge it. Whenever I want rice, I scoop out a serving onto a dish and nuke it for one minute... done.
