Pretty sure I bought my rice cooker for $14.99 like 15 years ago.
Still going strong.
Then again I put a shot tonne of curries with the rice so I don't really know the real "taste" of the rice.

That's the world's best rice from a Japanese perspective, though. There are lots of other rices developed alongside other cuisines that differ quite a bit.

Interesting to learn about Koshihikari rice in general. I have to keep my eyes peeled & try that.

Every bit of judgement has a perspective...regardless of what's being judged.

To your point though, what are some of the other competitions / ranking from other cuisines around the world?

I am not sure on competitions, I just meant that each rice has its use. I'd seek Koshihikari for authentic Japanese but I would not sub it for basmati for my South Asian cooking.

Yah true. But “the worlds best Japonica Oryza sativa“ doesn’t have a nice ring to it.

:lol:
