Does cooked rice need to be refrigerated?

Cooked rice definitely needs to be refrigerated, however since the air in a refrigerator is basically dry, it will adversely affect the quality and texture of the rice, makes sure that the bowl or container is airtight, and that the rice is basically at room temperature before you put it in the fridge. As a rule I don't keep rice for more than 48 hours in the fridge. Make sure that the rice is heated up well when you want to serve it up.

On a side note, I always find that overnight, refrigerated cooked rice makes the best fried rice, the grains separate easily, and the rice take up the flavours while you are cooking it.
