This is from McCann’s website. I love that you can use the microwave and not have to worry about scorching your pot on the stovetop. Of course, you can always use a double boiler, but that can take a while. I always enjoy steel cut oats because they are more nutritious than rolled oats and have a nice, nutty texture. Note: Cooking times may have to be adjusted for your microwave oven wattage. I have 1000 watts and had to cook 5 minutes covered and 11 minutes uncovered.
