You want it cool enough to handle, but still hot enough that it will cause condensation in the container. That will help the rice keep from drying out.

For us we keep beans in the freezer and in the pantry. And then our list is pretty much the same as the pp. Except we don't keep butter, coconut products or nut products due to allergies. We also keep veggie oil in addition to a ginormous container of olive oil. And we keep about 10 pounds of honey at all time- we use A LOT of honey.
Sorry for hijacking but would love it if you could share your Spanish rice and rice pilaf recipes
