So first, it's important to define "sticky rice," are you referring to the typical bowl served in a Japanese restaurant or Chinese place or are you referring to the dish known as "Sticky Rice" in a Thai restaurant, which requires a completely different rice and cooking method.

If you are talking about the typical Asian rice then it is a simple matter. BUY A RICE COOKER and follow the directions and you will have pretty much perfect rice. (How anyone survives without a rice cooker is beyond me!) Note that short grain rice (the stuff you tend to get in Japanese places and always in Sushi) is a bit different that long grain rice (Thai and Chinese restaurants). They have different flavors and use a different amount of water.

Wash the rice...not to clean it, but to remove the starch...this is super important with short grain rice, otherwise you will have a slimy mess.

For plain ole Japanese rice: https://www.you...e.com/watch?v=-eed1Kz-3DE

If it's just you and you don't wanna spend big $ get this rice cooker. It'll do the job fine. The company makes top line cookers, and it's easy to spend 120.00 on one of the fancier ones....
