    I have yet to try the steel cut oatmeal but mentioned this in another thread here somewhere but I use a rice cooker.

    I just toss 1c reg dry oats with 1-1/2 to 1-3/4 (depending on how you like your oatmeal) into the rice cooker, give'er a swish, plop lid on and press cook once w/o peeking. I cook it plain so everyone can tailor it to their tastes with their own creations/add in's etc after w/o forcing one another to eat it 'one way' only. Its turned out wonderfully each time. Our rice cooker insert has a teflon (?) type coating on it so nothing sticks. If it does...I let it sit with hot water and everything comes clean with ease.

    Thanks for posting this. I have some steel cut oatmeal that I keep forgetting to prep so that it's ready to eat in the morning. I will print this out and do it tonight. Looks good! And, bonus, someone brought some nice dried pears in to work, so I will snip some of those and use them.

    Thanks for the yummy recipes. I've never done oatmeal in the CP before.

    Libby, never tried it in the rice cooker either. I've done frozen veggies though.

    I thought I'd add in a different way to cook the overnight oatmeal that I use...

    Instead of placing everything directly into the slow cooker, I place my ingredients into a sturdy glass bowl, place the bowl inside the slow cooker & then fill my slow cooker with water up to the level of where my ingredients are inside my bowl.
    Be careful pouring it in so that you don't accidently pour it inside the bowl itself.

    This helps to give the oats more of a 'steam bath' and they won't have that crusty, crunchy edge & top that sometimes they get from cooking directly in the slow cooker.
