Rinse the rice thoroughly until the water is clear. Drain and place into a rice cooker pot.
Add the 6 1/2 cups of water. Let soak overnight if possible. If not, try to allot at least 20 minutes of soaking time.
Add oil and salt, stirring gently to combine all of the ingredients.
Cook according to your rice cooker’s directions. For 6 cups of rice, expect the rice to be cooked in about 45-60 minutes. You’ll know the rice is cooked when all of the liquid has been absorbed and the rice is soft and fluffy.
