* This product makes very flavorful full bodied hot oatmeal. I found no need to add salt for a single serving, but did fix it with 1/2 tsp. of added cinnamon and just a tiny sprinkle of Splenda. One warning is the instructions for fixing a single serving in the microwave! The first time I cooked it, I covered a good sized bowl with saran wrap, but when I went to take it out the cereal had all boiled out onto the microwave turntable. The second time I fixed it, I used a larger diameter bowl with a microwave lid, and the same thing happened, i.e. it pushed up the lid and boiled over. Both times made an awful glutinous mess in the microwave tray. Tomorrow I will try once again, but this time in a bowl with more depth! I plan to eat this cereal every day for hopeful cholesterol improvement, so I need to perfect the microwave cooking. I think it would be helpful if the label mentioned that the product can easily boil over in the microwave.
* I have been purchasing Bob's Red Mill Steel Cut Oats from Netrition.com for 2 years or more and have found this product to be extremely satisfying and very tasty. It takes a minimum of time to prepare, has a wonderfully crunchy texture and taste, and is one of the healthiest forms of oatmeal to consume. It helps to reduce your cholesterol levels as well. I strongly recommend it to anyone looking to improve their cholesterol numbers and for a very flavorful form of oatmeal.
* Wonderful product! My AIC (a diabetes blood sugar test), my cholesterol level, and my blood pressure levels have improved since I've been having your fabulous steel cut oatmeal every morning. Netrition's price is the best I've found too, so I'm a repeat customer and will continue to be. Nothing beats the taste of a warm bowl of steel cut oats in the a.m. with a packet of Splenda and fat free milk!! All this goodness and improved health also!
