Quaker Oats - Old Fashioned is rated 3.3415 out of 5 by 41.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from years of eating I have been eating Quaker oats old fashioned since I was about 8 years old. Almost every day my breakfast is Quaker oats. It helps keep me regular and it tastes great.

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 5 out of 5 by from Love the 'new' packaging! I eat Old Fashioned rolled oats at a minimum of 6 days/week and it's the main ingredient of my favorite no-bake cookies. I buy the 42oz canister and the handy pouring punch out is a real up-grade to using other brands. It sounds a bit 'market-y' to be gushing over a punch-out pouring area but it makes a huge difference when I just want the stuff to go into the bowl or measuring cup without getting on the counter! I bought another brand when the Quaker's was out of stock & learned my lesson - I was hating breakfast until I finished the canister and opened up Quaker's again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 2 Mushy I came to the web site to see if we were buying the wrong product. The oat flakes are not as big and there is more "dust/flour" in the product on a percentage basis. I recall a version of the rolled oats that had almost all large flakes. I don't see what I am looking for here. Winter is coming and this "oatmeal loyalist" wants the good stuff.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from GMO I like Quaker Oatmeal both Instant, Steel Cut and Old Fashioned. Have eaten since I was a small child, and found out today it all contains GMO. So I and my family stopped using it. We will use Bob Red Mill Organic Oatmeal. I hope Quaker STOPS using GMO ingredients and USES NON GMO and I will continue to purchase thisproduct. Thank you

Rated 1 out of 5 by from What has happened to my oatmeal? I have been eating Quaker oats all of my life. Suddenly they are like eating glue. Some kind of powdery paste. What have you done to them? I am seriously unhappy. The whole world is reeling and rocking. I need something to be normal. It would be nice if that were my breakfast.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from What happened to my favorite oatmeal? I'm 43 y/o and have eaten Quaker oats my entire life. I always paid more because it was worth it to get the full oat and better taste. But now for the last 6 months, the oats are pieces parts! What I once loved is now mush. Very sad. I REALLY liked my Quaker oats, but I'm not paying the extra money if generic quality is what I'm going to get.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from instant oatmeal to go cups the other to go cups were better. i'm not sure what the deal is now.. different type cup or what, but this oatmeal is not good. i LOVED the apples and cranberries but goodness, this new packaging is either affecting how it heats and is making it mushy, or something is different with the oatmeal. i am so disappointed. this is mushy and horrible.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Salty Maple & Brown Sugar Oatmeal We have been buying the lower sugar maple and brown sugar oatmeal for a while. The last two boxes we have say they are good till 12/15, but they taste like all salt and no brown sugar. We have opened up several of the packets in both boxes, but they taste awful. Was there a recall on the product or should it taste so salty?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Found the recipe I needed I lost the recipe about how to cook old fashioned oats which I cut off the box to put in my recipe file. Looked it up on the Quaker Oats web site and there it was! Was able to make my grandson and granddaughter oatmeal for breakfast and they said it was much better than the instant microwave stuff! Chalk one up for Grandma!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality and taste Have used Quaker instant Oats, first thing every morning at work, for years. Now I will have to look for another brand of instant oats, as Quaker chose to make a change without telling the customer. The oats never thicken up, they remain like water, that's not what I expect.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 'Lower Sugar" I recently purchased your 'Lower Sugar' product. I expected it to have lower sugar than normal and taste less sweet. Not the case. It was so sickling sweet I checked the package and learned it now has sucralose in it!!!What were you thinking???

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Old Fashion Quaker Oats I am really sorry you have changed your Old Fashion Quaker Oats. They used to be big oats flakes which made good Oatmeal. Now they are like the steel cut and instant oats which just comes out mushy and everything sticks together.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from bugs in food Today I opened a cylinder of Quaker oats and found it contained a large population of bugs. I have pictures, if you want them. The packaging code is 'Best before Mar 16 15 L1406'

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I eat the Old Fashioned every morning and love it. I am writing regarding the pull top. It should be redesigned. It is very difficult to try to pull the top off. When it finally does pull off everything pulls off the whole thing. Then every morning I have to push the plastic ring down all the way around the top of the box and then push the lid down. It's not good, A waste of time and frustrating to me every morning. Also, your Questions and Comments phone number 1-800-367-6287 is incorrect. I called to talk to a rep. regarding these problems and left a message. I received a call from another company saying Quaker Oats did not receive my message and that they get these calls all the time. You definitely have to do something about this problem. Then I tried to find another number on your website and you do not have one. You really should I had to go through all of this to tell you these problems. It's not good. You need to correct these problems for the consumer. You have a great healthy products. Your customer wants to call and talk to a rep. My time is precious taking care of my one year old grandson and here I am writing this message when I should just be able to pick up the phone and quickly talk to a rep. Hope I have helped your company with these suggestions.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from There has DEFINATELY been a change. There has definitely been a change! The rolled oats are no longer "rolled" as they had been in the past. I have noted these changes have occurred since PESICO bought Quaker. My guess:1 - they sold off the manufacturing plants and contract buy the product, hence little to no control over the product.or2 - they have changed the processing to reduce mfg cost and improve profits.I no longer purchase Quaker oats.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My friends love the cookies Love vanishing oatmeal cookies, made some changes. Besides raisins, I use also dried apricots cut up for a special flavor, and a touch of almond extract. How do I change from cookies to granola bars. Temp and timing?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like it, but it seems like something has changed I eat this oatmeal almost every morning, have for years, and will continue to do so. I like it. However, it has definitely changed in texture and taste. I used to cook it (not overcook) and it would retain large flakes and a taste that was unique. Now it has more of a "mushy" or pasty texture and definitely tastes different. Maybe my "old guy" taste buds are changing. Who knows.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quaker steel cut oats - the BEST !! Dear Friends at Quaker Oats, I have tried several types of steel cut oats and want to tell you that yours are, by far, the best. They are chewy, hearty, and delicious. The cooking time on the package is accurate and I look forward to them each morning. Keep up the great work !!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good I eat it some mornings with peanut butter chia seeds and/or greek yogurt. simple and satisfying. i cook it in a glass bowl by pouring boiling water on it, then setting the hot kettle on top on the bowl to create a pressure cooker effect. ready in 8-13 min!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from What's with the new package.. Love the oats, but where the heck is the lid?? My husband brought home a 42 oz container of old fashioned oats, and I pulled off the plastic around the edge--and no plastic lid?? So how are we meant to store the oats in our pantry.,,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dates, raisins and walnuts - good as homemade I have a oatmeal casserole recipe that was the best ever, but after trying the instant oatmeal flavor- dates, raisins and walnuts I will not be doing all the work to bake this. This is the best oatmeal and it is so easy!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Why change a perfectly good product? Not unlike so many other former Quaker Oats customers, I am extremely disappointed with the texture of Quaker Oats. Please go back to the original product/process or risk losing a large portion of your customer base.
