Why does my reheated Steel Cut Oats come out gloppy and congealed together?

Hello All. I usually make a my steel cut oats in my rice cooker (1:3 ratio of oats and water) and generally have a couple of servings out of it. I have heard how oats reheat so well in the microwave but mine comes out all congealed together in small little gloppy chunks. I usually put a little milk before microwaving to hopefully loosen it up but it doesnt seem to work. The milk stays settled on the bottom of the heated bowl and the oats are still clumped together. What am I doing wrong? I use a 5 cup Zoji to cook it and the batch comes out perfect when I first make it but the reheated oats never look/taste the same as the original. Is this normal? How do you reheat your oats?
