In any case, may want to experiment cooking rice in a regular pot. The bottom layer is almost always burnt and it has a nice but different flavour. This is sometimes used in other dishes too.
you might need to turn it down even lower (if possible) i turn mine down to the very lowest temp, min, and i've never had the bottom burn. and i always use my simmer burner, maybe that helps too?
That's my 2cents worth

Check the dollar stores for a new cord. My local one carries several types of power cords with different plugs.

:lol: I doubt the insurance will cover non-standard electrical work though... I don't know about you but paper isn't the best way to insulate a plug..
