Reviews For Steel Cut Irish Oatmeal
Based on 14 Reviews
I've tried Scottish oatmeal, old fashioned rolled oats, instant, etc. and this is by far the most healthy in my opinion since it's the least processed.
I also wasn't aware what I was ordering so I almost fell over when I saw it would take half an hour to cook. Luckily there's a speed version where you partially cook the oats and let them rest overnight in the fridge. I did that and it made breakfast the next morning a breeze.
I highly suggested salting with a dash of Himalayan sea salt and a good douse of Vermont maple syrup.
I prepare this oatmeal in a 2qt slow cooker overnight. 4C water to 1C McCanns oatmeal. Turn on low and it is perfect the next day. Refrigerate any left overs and you are good to go. Best oatmeal ever.
Much better than regular oatmeal
I've heard a lot about steel cut oatmeal so I thought I'd give it a try. I don't eat regular oatmeal much, but I will be eating this more often. The texture is more like a fine cereal - it doesn't get "mushy" like regular oatmeal. Very good for a healthy and filling breakfast.

Best oatmeal ever
I started getting this oatmeal a few years ago when I started weaning myself off instant oats and was pleasantly surprised at how much better tasting oatmeal was using these oats. A lot of people don't get steel cut oatmeal because they think it is hard to make. I make it very easy in microwave versus stove top by changing the water ratio, delicious. My girlfriend buys these cans in multiple to stock up. I may have to now that the winter is coming.

My favorite oatmeal!
I eat this 4x a week! I make a batch on Sunday night and reheat it in the morning. Makes eating healthy easy on the busy mornings.
Didn't know what I was missing
I was searching for a great Steel Cut Irish Oatmeal and found McCanns. I am love this oatmeal and eat it almost daily with honey and fresh fruit and almonds. Great price and as long as Thrive Market carries it - I'm buying it!
Oats are Oats
These are just like any other steel cut oats, so I approve! I specifically chose this brand based upon the company values and price.
This is the oatmeal of choice in our household; steel cut is very healthy!
STEEL CUT OATS
WILL ORDER AGAIN LOVE THEM
Far better than mom ever made.
When I was growing up oatmeal was tasteless gooey sludge. I soak mine with whey or a couple spoonfuls of yogurt overnight. Measure oats, add a couple tablespoons of whey or yogurt, top up requisite water in an oven proof bowl. Put on a bug cover; coffee filter, a few layers cheesecloth, or a plain "flour/potato sack" white cotton towel will work. In the morning take off the bug cover, put the bowl cover on, and bake for 1 hour at 350F (177C) for perfect "attention free" oatmeal. Dried fruit can be added just before baking or fresh fruit after for natural sweetness; much better than brown sugar.
Best Oat Meal
I've been eating McCann's Steel Cut oat meal for years it truly is the best! I usually let it soak in water overnight and the next morning make fresh nutrient-rich oat meal. I double the water to cook it and then add some cinnamon and brown sugar or some raw honey and it's truly delicious!
The real thing!
The Irish are famous for their oatmeal, and after a trip over there, I decided to try these. I will never go back to that mushy "regular" oatmeal. This is steel cut, the good stuff, which has a much fuller taste and texture. It does take more time to prepare, but I make a pot of about 4 servings at a time. I make it in a dutch oven with chocolate soymilk and truvia, and just scoop out and reheat a serving each day.
