Do you like oatmeal, but hate the need to sit there and stir as it cooks? Then, this recipe is for you! I bought a Multi-Cooker a while ago and I have been making this Pressure Cooker Oatmeal in it ever since. Super simple, super delicious and super easy to make, there’s no better way to make Oatmeal. Aside from setting the multi-cooker for the appropriate setting, a 5 year old can probably make it with no problem.

Sometimes the recipes are so simple that I am hesitant to post them, but this Pressure Cooker Oatmeal is so creamy, so good, so comforting that I just couldn’t not post this recipe.

    Hello Marina!
    This was amazing! My kids ate it up like no other kasha before…☺️
    But I was really surprised that it burned on the bottom? And it actually lit up as BURN…any ideas what I did wrong? Thanks so much..

    • Hi Julie,
      When I made and posted this recipe I was using the Fagor brand pressure cooker, and that pressure cooker never had the “burn” light go off. With Instant Pot, it is more sensitive and can show burn even at the slightest sticking to the pot.

      That being said, there’s not a workaround method for using whole milk to make this oatmeal in the pressure cooker and not get that message. So when I make it with a 100% milk, I just cook it and try not to disturb the bottom when I mix it, that way I am not getting any of the scorched oatmeal from the bottom into the rest of the kasha.

      The only way not to get it to burn is to cook it with water.

      Sometimes I will cook the oatmeal with water in ratio of 1 cup oatmeal to 2 cups water and then once it’s cooked I will add 2 more cups of whole milk and mix. It does not stick this way but then it’s not as good as it would’ve been if you made it with 100% milk.

    Does this stick to the pot or burn? I really want to try it, but it’s one concern I have… Thanks!

    Thank you for this recipe, I’ll be the first to try it!
    Do you know if I can use old-fashioned oats in place of steel cut?

    • I think old-fashioned oats are rolled and therefore are steamed before rolling. This means that they they will need less cooking time. I have not done it so can not tell you for sure, but I think 15-20 minutes could be enough for old fashioned oats.
