Steel Cut Oats

Reviews & Ratings
Quaker Oats - Steel Cut is rated 4.3077 out of 5 by 78.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great taste! I used to eat Old fashioned Quaker oats cereal but recently I switched to the steel cut oats because I heard it was healthier. I was skeptical to try it at first because it takes about 25 min to cook but I'm always doing more than one thing in the kitchen so I just made sure I started cooking the steel oats prior to feeling extremely hungry.I mixed my cereal with honey, cinnamon, apples, and unsweetened almond milk and it rated better than the old fashioned oats. The texture was pleasant and I would recommend that anyone should at least try this cereal once. It's healthy and delicious.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ratio of Water/Milk to Oats For 1 serving - 1 1/2 cups of water/milk to 1/4 cup oats. I followed the instructions and it took over 1 1/2 hrs to prepare to where it wasn't too watery. Even then I had to mix dry cereal with it. The oats themselves are delicious but I recommend cutting back on the amount of water/milk recommended on the box. The 4 serving mix of 4 cups water to 1 cup oats may be ok. That's the equivalent to 1 cup to 1/4 cup. When I first purchased the product I got it home and realized there were no microwave instructions. I used approx. 1 cup water to 1/4 cup oats and microwaved it about 8 times with 1min down to 30 sec increments.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First Steel Cut Oat Product I've Ever Loved! I normally hate steel cut oats, but these were truly delicious. I grew up eating Quaker oats, and now at age 30 and as a health nut, I've come a long way from eating the instant oats with loads of sugar. I mainly go for traditional Quaker rolled (old-fashioned) oats and just love them, however, I tried both the Steel Cut and 3 minute Steel Cut oats.I have always hated steel cut oats but these are perfect! They have enough bite and chew to add texture but not so much where I feel like I'm working to enjoy my oatmeal. I like to mix 1/2 rolled with 1/2 steel cut in the slow cooker for 3 hours on high for an amazing recipe that's packed with texture and creaminess. Thank you Quaker!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to Cook! I cook mine in the rice cooker and it comes out perfect with no hassle. I add all the extra ingredients once the rice cooker is done...almond or any milk, nuts, dried fruits,and or spices, maple syrup, cinnamon, blueberries, etc!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love The Chewiness I tried the long cooking version because steel cut oats have been processed less. Have been an old-fashioned oatmeal fan for some time. I love the chewiness/texture. It makes you feel you're eating something substanial. I make a big batch at a time and then scoop out a serving and microwave. Delicious with fruit and almond milk. Add a few almonds or walnuts for more protein. Also less expensive than other brands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite part of my morning! Highly recommend these steel cut oats! They take just as long to prepare as the the old fashion oats, except they do not produce the glycemic spike that the old fashion oats do. Great!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Watch out for 3 minute version Accidentally bought the 3 minute version. Didn't know there was a second version so didn't look at the label carefully. This is missing the chewiness of the original. Had no problem with the cooking time of the original. This version was very disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesomeness in a bowl I really enjoy these oats. Such a nice, nutty and chewy texture. I tend to make a big batch and refrigerate it. For breakfast I'll scoop some out, add milk and dried fruit and warm it on the stove top or microwave.
