Go with the grain.

In Japanese, hario means “the king of glass,” and this heat-resistant number totally lives up to the name. For the softest, fluffiest rice you ever did see, just use two parts liquid to one part rice and simmer on low ‘til the top whistles. That little vent lets out steam so it’ll never overflow, and the glass lid gives you a front row seat for the magic happening inside. The pot is made from thick ceramic that’s safe for all stovetops, too—now all you have to do is opt for the little guy or larger size (perfect for dinner parties).
