Reviews & Ratings
Quaker Oats - Old Fashioned is rated 4.193 out of 5 by 285.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everyone who tried it, loved it!!! I've never been a big lover of oatmeal till now. I would always find that oatmeal had a yucky, 'blah' sort of taste until I tried Quaker Oats steel cut 3 minute oatmeal in the flavor of blueberries and cranberries. I found that after my first bowl, I was ready for seconds which I have never done with any other oatmeal before. I went around telling anyone who would listen about how wonderful this new product was and how they must try it to see for themselves. I had 3 people go out to try it courtesy of a coupon I gave them and they all fell in love with the rich flavor of the oatmeal. I got to try this product for free thanks to Quaker and Bzzagent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from the whole family loves quaker oats for breakfast. Usually mornings in our house are very busy and hectic. I need to be able to make breakfast fast. I do not want to compromise on health, I still want to give them something that is going to keep them full and nourish them throughout the day. Quakeroats is perfect for that. I can make a quick bowl of oatmeal for my family and everyone is eating fast and its healthy. We love the single serve packets because everyone can choose their own flavor. The bonus is there is also not alot of mess in the making, so clean-up is fast and easy to. I did receive new Quaker Steel Cut Quick 3-Minute Oatmeal for a promotion from the brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gluten Free Status of Quaker Rolled Oats I think I understand why Quaker can't guarantee that its oats are gluten free. Should a "weed" wheat plant be sown in a field of oats, there is the possibility that some boxes of oats could contain a little bit of wheat. Quaker is being very honest when it says it cannot guarantee this won't happen. However, I infer from the information I've been able to find on this and other sites that oats without contamination are gluten free. Therefore, I'll continue to buy my favorite Quaker oats even for gluten-free cooking and baking. I've never had a problem with them over my entire life. I love the Costco packs!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bring Back Perfect portions I live in Michigan and I am wondering why have you stopped making the perfect portions oatmeal?I found it at Walmart first, then they quit selling it. I then found it at Meijers. I bought 4 bags just to sustain me until I saw it again. I eat it every morning and do not want to go back the sugary substitutes. Now I see you quit making it.I loved it, it was low in sodium and sugar, talk about heart healthy....I could get the amount I needed and it was easy to make. Always turned out great for me. I just added frozen fruit and hot water, microwaved for 45secs, stirred and ate. Perfect every time.Please bring it back as I see I am not the only one who loved it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Packaging issue The last container of Quaker Old Fashioned Oats I purchased did not have the plastic rim around the top of the container. I nearly spilled my oats in my cupboard this morning when I grabbed the container and started lifting it up and off the shelf! I transferred the oats into a food storage container so this won't happen again. However, I am frustrated that I had to do that and curious as to why the company would change its packaging. I haven't decided if I'll buy this brand again since I have found cheaper brands to be just as satisfying as Quaker and have better packaging.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Why has it changed? We have been buying Quaker old fashioned oats for many years now. My daughter recommended Red Mill oats before but I liked Quaker just as much then. But Quaker old fashioned oatmeal has changed. It doesn`t cook the same. It has a different texture. The pieces of oats are finer and it tastes pasty, like it has flour in it. The first box I bought like that I just thought it was that one box maybe. But it has been box after box.Quaker has changed something. I am no longer pleased with the product. I will be switching brands. I may have to pay a little more but I don`t like this as much as I used to. I'm sure the change was motivated by the economy. And I don`t blame them for trying to save money but unless they change back, I am switching. If they change back I will still buy it, even if the amount in the box is smaller but the price is the same.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Shell-like Pieces Mixed Into the Oats I'm not sure if anyone else has experienced this, though I'm not sure how you couldn't, but there are shell-like pieces mixed into the oats. I'm guessing it's the outer layer of the grain, the bran, that gets roasted with the rest of the grains. They become hard and just ruins the experience when eating it. You can't just chew through them...they're hard like the outer shell of a popcorn kernel that gets left behind after cooking it. I like to eat oatmeal because of the health benefits, but this is the most horrible thing for me...eating something that's supposed to be soft and mushy and biting into something hard and unchewable...makes me want to gag and throw up. I want to switch brands but none of the grocery stores in my area carry any other brands.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Old Fashion Oats are chaning this is the first time I've ever contacted a company regarding a change to a product.About a year ago it seemed the oats were sliced thinner and were losing some of their great nutty flavor and texture.I just started a new 42 oz container nad every batch of oat meal comes out mushy and pastey. did you add oat flour?!I've been a loyal long time customer and do not want to change but this is just to poor quality. I can go to Starbucks to get mush.
