throw it in here. fill it to the proper line with water from your britta filter and press the button. comes out perfect every time.
I get Earthly Delights brand organic bolivian quinoa from costco in 4lb bags. wash it under the sink until the water runs clear. maybe you have some odd brand, maybe it's just getting a little burnt with your current cooking methods.
washing is the same way as rice. but if you're unfamiliar
the cooker is a zojirushi induction heating model. it's great but not worth it unless grain is a big part of your diet. IMHO a great grain like quinoa should be.
any rice cooker is good to have but if it has a glass top it's probably crap. at least make sure it's a nonstick bowl/pan.
