One word of advice when making slow cooker rice! There is a fine line in the crockpot between firm rice and rice mush! Depending upon your preferences it’s best to keep an eye on the rice for the last 30 minutes or so.

A little extra liquid at the end of the cooking time is better than running out and leaving you with rice that is too firm.
