I've never heard of spitting feathers but I'm going to use that from now on cos I think it would be frustrating to have a mouthful of feathers and try and spit them out
I've made rice twice from the chip and both times was undercooked. I think the trick is to measure and then wash it before proceeding.
I think just having a slightly bigger bowl, and the revised MC design that there is overall less splatter. I don't have to clean this Thermie as much on the outside for some reason.
