    I want to try this. Do you have a recommended brand of slow cooker?

    Hi Z. I have a 4-quart Rival (it's oval, and red), which I got for $20 at Target. Hard to complain when it's that cheap! You don't need a fancy machine; all you really need are Low/High/Warm buttons.

    LOVE this. We've made it every day for a week. It works over night on low (I put it on one night at 9, another at midnight, and it was great) and the night I forgot to turn it on – I put it on high from 5am to 7am and it STILL came out great.

    Wow, Tracy, I've never tried the 2-hours-on-high thing. Good to know next time Harry wakes me at 5:30 (like he did today).

    Oh, the solution you told me about for my "smoldering overnight oatmeal"! Hurrah! Would you shudder if I suggested a few tablespoons of cocoa mix? I love the smell of chocolate in the morning…;)

    oooo, Ivy, I like the way you think!

    I think I'd better give this a go. I'm trying to eat more oatmeal but have managed to murder it TWICE on the stovetop. Geez!

    Just to clarify, you put the oats and salt in the glass bowl. Then fill the space between with the cold water?

    I love the steel-cut oats! Have any of you tried eating them cold after preparing them? I prepare them for the week and each day I just add a cup of blueberries, a tablespoon of flaxseed meal and a tablespoon of sliced almonds and sunflower seeds as well as 3oz. of greek yougert. We had something like this when we were in England a few years ago. It was and is really good!

    I’ll try the slow cooker with the water insert. I’ve only been eating them for the past month or so – trying to reduce my cholesterol levels without statins.
