Do I need a non-stick pot to make oatmeal???

Jellybelly | Mar 16, 200502:31 PM     12

I have never been excited about non-stick and I never thought I needed a non-stick pot. BUT today I (for the first time) made oatmeal with milk. Well, it was delicious, but it left my pot (an All-Clad Stainless) a mess! I had to soak the pot all day and then scrub for a while to boot. Do I need to invest in yet another pot or is there a technique that I'm missing out on? Perhaps I let it sit too long without stirring? Maybe it needs to be stirred constantly? I feel a little silly - I actually cook quite a bit, but apparently oatmeal is not my forte...

Thanks!
Melissa
