Another reminder to make my code as simple as possible.
It's the sort of thing that means that even super cheap rice cookers from the supermarket work great - that's all I've ever used.

i was just saying to a friend that the simple rice cookers (seem to) cook faster and make rice just as well as the fancy models but did not have this explanation in mind to back that up.
It could still wait for the heat to suddenly rise in order to know when to stop.
That's how your rice cooker makes absorption style rice, and how you do it in a pot. (Also a ton better than boiled)

Also note I have made a mixture of multiple types of rice, same way, with no issue.
Honestly I only actually learnt the Asian method about 5 years ago and was kicking myself for not researching it earlier. It's so much better and insanely reliable across different types of rice.
Edit: after it is done I tend to take the lid off, stir it and let sit for a bit to let it air out. That helps a lot.
I’m going to try your fluffing method.
Zojirushi's, depending on the model. Mine has settings for white rice, brown rice, sushi rice, porridge and quick cooking.
Could also be "at boiling point but at a lower power setting".
When at boiling point, each ml of evaporated water takes some amount of energy, it is not just a matter of time. Power at boiling point is basically "boiling rate".
The reduced power setting during boiling (relative to white rice) is for the second phase of cooking.

See this popular model for an example:
Clicking the link on the page to view the product on Amazon Canada gets me to "Zojirushi NS-TSC18 Micom Rice Cooker and Warmer, 10 cups"
Strange, The US site lists the Liters held while the Canadian site switches to telling me how many cups it can handle.
Ergh. I'm Canadian. I can handle the litres.
Aside from a short time to heat a larger volume of water, it doesn't. (and your really not talking that much time difference lol).

Some of his code (through acquisitions) lives on at the Nasdaq exchange. He's a fascinating person in the history of electronic markets.
Why does the coil use air core rather than something
like iron that would concentrate the magnetic field?
Because then the magnet would want to stick to it.
But an analysis that focuses on the very low resistance of the wire and ignores the back EMF from moving the pendulum seems wrong.
