1. Get plenty of water boiling with a pinch of salt
2. Tip in the rice and return to the boil
3. Set timer for 10 minutes, turn down heat and put on a lid
4. Once time is up shoot entire pan contents through a seive.

As cogito says plus when you come to serve it up just run a metal fork through it to fluff. Never use a spoon with rice to fluff, only to serve.
But really, only one stir as rice goes in water to stopp it sticking then leave it.

Buy a rice cooker. About a tenner from agros. We use ours weekly and saves a fortune on posh rice from the take away.

Second the rice cooker, mine doubles as a slow cooker...
