Have you used a rice cooker to cook flavored, boxed rice mixes like Zatarain's? If so, how did it turn out?

No, but I do cook that brand of flavored rice in the oven. It's the same thing, the rice gets steamed, not boiled. I use an oven safe, stainless steal saucepan with a glass lid. For one box I use the specified amount of water, bring everything to a boil, turn the heat off, stir well, cover, and put the sauce pan in a preheated 375° F oven for 25 minutes. At 25 minutes, check the rice, if there's still some water in the pan, put back in the oven with the lid on for an additional 3 to 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork when it's done. For two of the small boxes which would call for 3 cups of water, I reduce the water down to 2 2/3 cups. Everything else is the same.
