Quaker Oats - Old Fashioned is rated 3.4516 out of 5 by 62.
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 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 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 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 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 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 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 4 out of 5 by from box change Was wondering why on the back of the box of old fashioned Quaker Oats it doesn't show the red heart that had written in it the amount thats for heart health. Used to show 3/4 cup and I THINK 1 cup water. So now don't know if that has changed and why it was taken off. And now don't know should I eat one serving (1/2 cup) or 2 servings (1 cup).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from recipes I can not believe you do not have a recipe for stuffed green peppers. My mother, who has passed on, always made this with sausage and ground beef and of course, Quaker Oats. I can not ask her now but I thought she originally got her recipe from you. If you do have this recipe, I ask you to please publish it again.

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 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 1 out of 5 by from Old Fashioned Oats is no longer old fashioned why R-U destroying a once wonderful product? My grandmother (deceased 45yrs)ONLY used this brand. NOW hulls, chaff, container weak & spilling on store shelf, smells like brn sugar added (now posted to ingred),slimy after cooking. STOP WHAT U-R DOING and go back to the OLD product. You must make for other brands as theirs are awful too. Where can I find the awesome kind? I quit buying your brand 2yrs ago and switched to store brand and theirs is following suite.

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 5 out of 5 by from Preparing Oatmeal Been buying Quaker old fashion oats for over 45 years and eat them for breakfast three to four times a week. For several years now I've tried to make oatmeal in the microwave ... but no matter how deep a bowl the oatmeal bubbles over making a terrible mess in the microwave. Several months ago I was shopping at Schnucks grocery store and had to purchase their brand of old fashion oats as they were out of Quaker brand. The instruction for cooking oatmeal, using the Schnucks brand, in the microwave is different from the instruction using the Quaker brand. The Quaker brand says to microwave on HIGH for 2-1/2 to 3 minutes, stir before serving. The Schnucks brand says to microwave on MEDIUM (50% power) 5 to 6 minutes. Remove from microwave , mix well. FINALLY I am able to make my oatmeal in the microwave without making a mess! After I ran out of the Schnucks brand I again purchased my Quaker old fashion oats and tried the Schnucks method of making old fashion oatmeal in the microwave and it works. Why doesn't Quaker change their method of making oatmeal in the microwave ... as what is write on the box doesn't work - it boils over every time? That said ... I love my Quaker old fashion oats and will continue to purchase them but will use the Schnucks method of cooking the oats.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Old Fashioned Oats - definately have changed! I just opened a new box of Quaker Oats - Old Fashioned. When I cooked the oats it was definately different. I cooked it exactly as the box directed as I have all my live. The oats were chewy and not the usual texture and taste. They didn't seem to ever get done. I cooked them on the stove as they usually taste better to me than in the microwave. I'm really disappointed they have changed. Not sure what has changed but they are definately not the same.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oatmeal with milk and pecans This is a great cold weather fast meal. I use two packets of instant Apple cinnamin oatmeal in a cup of milk and set my microwave for 2 minutes. After cooking I add about 2 tablespoons of crushed pecans. Then stir until evenly distributed. Eating this with a piece of whole grain toast is a perfect breakfast that takes less than three minutes to make. Add a cup of your favorite coffee on the side and it make cold mornings much better.

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 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 !!!!
