Challenge Accepted!
So this steel cut oatmeal recipe challenge has been going on since 2008. I accept! I am going to half the recipe, use the water per hours cooked suggestion and add more salt. I am also going to see if there are suggestions on the web for overnight. I predict I'll give it s "3."

Soupy???
I can't IMAGINE how anyone could mess this up. I have been making it for years and the only time it failed, or was soupy, was when I forgot to plug in the crockpot! I have made it in a $4.99 crockpot I bought on Black Friday; in a 1 qt with removable insert; and in a full size 2-temperature model. Always perfect even though I may cook it from 6 to 10 hours on low. In the morning, you must stir it a bit with your serving ladle. We buy the oats in the bulk food aisle.

Yuck!
I read the reviews and still tried this recipe using low power on my slow cooker. I used "McCann's Irish Oatmeal" (2 cups) and 8 cups water. I cooked it overnight for 10+ hours. It was still very soupy even though I added more cranberries than called for in addition to brown sugar and cinnamon. I added the suggested salt, but it was still bland. It has "solidified" somewhat as it has cooled and I am doctoring it tomorrow morning to see if I can improve on the flavor.

Fabulous
I halved the recipe using 1 cup oats and 4cups water in the slow cooker since it is just the two of us. My roommate really loved that is was like pudding with a pop from the oat groats and I like that breakfast is done when I wake up. I use a crockpot liner so the clean up is easy. I vary the dried fruit too. I tried to make regular oats in the crockpot before but they are too soft to stand up to the long cook time.

A nice creamy hot breakfast
This worked fine for me. I found that if it's to cook less than 8 hours you have to reduce the amount of water. My rule of thumb is 1 cup water for every hour of coking time so if it's only going to cook 6 hours; use 6 cups of water. I can think of plenty of variations too. I left out the fruit and added 1 teaspoon of cinnamon for a nice change. It turns out creamier than 5 min Oats but I really like waking up to a hot breakfast.

Agree. Woke up to a soupy mess. My mother-in-law managed to get it into a pan on the oven and doctor it enough to save us but defeated the purpose of a low maintenance morning meal. The steel cut oats were good though (with dried blue berries)

Thought this would be great as I was looking for a good 'stick to your ribs' oatmeal. Halved the recipe and cooked it on low in my crockpot overnight. It was like water in the morning, never thickened up. Very disappointed as I specifically purchased steel cut oats in order to try.
Next time I will cook it as per direction on the box.
