I tried making a single serving of Oatmeal; 1 2/2 cup of water and 1 Cup of Oatmeal. Set for to make white rice and Porridge. Result, thin fluid mixture of runny cooked oatmeal filled the vent and some spilled out the top; i.e., made a mess. Will someone tell me how to cook Oatmeal with this cooker

Hi. What kind of oatmeal did you use? I've found that the steel cut type works best. The "instant" or even "quick cook" types might not work...they might get overcooked.

I use the steel-cut oatmeal (can buy from Trader Joe's, or in bulk from Whole Foods or any other health food store). I put in 1 cup of oatmeal and 4 cups of water. I choose "regular" or "white rice" for type, and "porridge" for texture. Then I set the timer for when I wake up in the morning (7 a.m.). I've never just put in and pressed "cook", because my experience cooking beans in the cooker is that it'll just keep cooking--it won't know when to stop. Somehow the timer cooking function senses how long to gauge it for.

After I open the lid, I stir the oatmeal because the water tends to settle at the top. After stirring, it's perfect to eat.

Haven't experienced the same mess/spillover issues.

Good luck!
