Steel cut oats -- rice cooker vs slow cooker?

pamlet | Oct 4, 2008 11:24 AM

The cooling weather turned my thoughts to porridge, which we had this morning to great satisfaction -- my daughter (2) literally gobbled it down. We've always saved this for the weekend because of the cooking time, but I'd thought I'd try the overnight version. My problem is that our slow cooker is quite large, so i wondered whether the rice cooker would do. When we bought our rice cooker, however, I recall stern warnings about cooking anything other than rice in it. (It's a Japanese brand, beginning with Z...) Any thoughts or wisdom? The search also came up with one person who boiled the oats the night before, let them sit, and finished them off in the morning...
