Every time I make steel cut oats overnight they always stick to the sides of the slow cooker and get all crusty. I wondered if I made them in a smaller slow cooker if it would help. Cooking in my little dipper (which doesn’t actually have a LOW or HIGH setting) seemed to work a bit better. I put them in about 11 pm and didn’t end up turning of the cooker until 7:45 am. They were cooked nicely and less stuck to the sides of the slow cooker. I am also the only one in my house that likes steel-cut oats so making one serving worked well for me. I’ll be using this method again. 4 stars.
