when I bought a rice cooker I had a conversation with my mom that I may remember for life:
"so you just put rice in it and it cooks?"
"well, you have to rinse the rice first"
"oh. sounds like a lot of work. I just put minute rice in a pot on the stove"
"it takes like 20 seconds"
"minute rice seems easier"
