    That finger notch measurement for the water vs rice ratio , almost always the first thing you learn, in any Asian culture. Then you upgrade to a Sanyo or a Tiger and never use it again.

    I expected the Chinese cooking guy to at least wash the rice first.

    I used to use the finger measurement all the time until we bought a tiger. Also, old skool Chinese folk don't wash the rice or they just do a quick rinse cause they think it washes the nutrients away. I'm totally the Chinese cook, never measure anything and just eyeball it, but we don't use MSG. Maybe that's why the wife complains all the time that my cooking isn't consistent haha, seems fine to me!

    I'd say most hongers wash their rice. Maybe the poor deeper mainlander villagers don't.

    I agreed finger measurement is very common in Asian cooking culture. That couldn't be seen anywhere else.
