Before I begin, I wanna ask: Whats the beat foundation I can buy at a Vitamin Shoppe?.

My next question is: I have a HUGE question...I have seen numerous people having trouble with the oatmeal ending up in the microwave, instead of the bowl. I have tried everything I can, and either it is like soup, or all over the microwave..

Have tried boiling the water first and adding it to the oatmeal, but it still needs to be cooked. Don't have a stove-top at work, so can't do that either..

I only have 1 power setting on my microwave, so I can't power down. Help please?? Anyone??..

Get a bigger bowl. Much bigger. I use a very large one. Also, you can start and stop it every few seconds, which is what the power settings does. Kicks off and on. You can do it manually...

Comment #2

I'll try these, and maybe I can convince the co-workers to buy a new microwave..

Thanks so much!..

I know it won't be exactly the same - but I made a baked oatmeal (sort of like Paul's Bundt Cake) by adding my fruit (applesauce or baby food fruit) and protein (eggbeater) and cook in the toaster oven - but you could probably do it in the microwave like the bundt cake.......then you get everything in one bowl! I use a single serve Corningware bowl - but I bet any microwave safe bowl would do that is at least 2 cups...

I had that problem too and it was so frustrating. Now I never have that problem..

I bought ziploc containers with the twist lids. I use a really tall one (so tall the oatmeal can't possible reach the top); I got an assortment of sizes in a box at Costco. Then I twist the lid so it's secure on the container but a little air can escape. I also heat for only half the time, open the lid to let the steam out and then retwist, and then cook for the remainder of the time. That solves the problem..

Some of those lunch containers (in the little tins with the white plastic lids) also blow up. Since I don't want to waste any lunch, I always put those in a different, much deeper container with a twist lid and do the same as the oatmeal. End of problem. We certainly don't want to waste even one morsel of our food!..

I find it easier to make with enough hot water to reconstitute, let it sit for a good 10 or 15 minutes, the warm it up in the microwave rather than cooking it totally in the microwave. You don't need to use boiling water necessarily, hot water from your tap or from an instant hot is fine...

I use my biggest or next biggest mixing bowl and put a dinner plate on top of it. Yesterday I made the maple brown sugar oatmeal and cooked it with 1/4 of a sliced banana in it and it was absolutely heavenly. So so good...

Comment #7

I use a larger soup bowl and cook it 30 seconds at a time on full power. I let it rest for a minute in between "30 sec zaps" until it is done enough for me. I am usually cooking DH breakfast while I am doing this... Good Luck!..

Comment #8

I use a big bowl, put 1/2 cup of water and cook it in the microwave for 2 minutes...

Comment #9

The new packs say cook at 50% power for 5 minutes. I used a larger cereal bowl and had no problem with the overflow...

Comment #10

I heard about this problem as well. I adjusted by using a larger bowl with a wide base for it to "cook" the oats. then I also cut the minutes in half. 2.5 then stir. Then I follow with the remaining time...

Comment #11

I just had the oatmeal (for lunch, I had my lunch bar for bfast), made it with 4 oz of water, nuked it at Medium for 5 minutes, stirred, rested for 2 and it was perfect (and delish)...

Comment #12

Big Bowl And Then Transfer To A Smaller One To Eat..it Is Delicious And Worth The Effort...

Comment #13

I just had the oatmeal for breakfast. I cooked it accordingly and it came out a bit watery so I put it back in on full power for 50 seconds and it was perfect..

Diane..

Comment #14

I use a pretty deep bowl, and cook at 50% for 2 minutes, let it sit a minute, then 50% again for 2 minutes. No overflow. I am so glad I discovered this method, because IMHO, the oatmeal is one of the most satisfying breakfast choices..

Splitting the cooking time in half and giving a minute rest in between should help any of the other entrees which 'pop', as well...

Comment #15

Put your microwave on 50% and put a paper tile on the large bowl. works fine for me if I stop it after 2 minutes, stir and cook further..

Comment #16

Has anyone compared the stats on the new Quaker Weight control oatmeal...I bought a box over the holidays while waiting for my shipment because I was out of breakfasts. It was delicious (and super easy to cook!), but I didn't think to save the box to compare to a NS one...

Wow I had no idea there was such a difference in fat & calories between the two flavors of NS Oatmeal! I'm going to stick to the Apple Cinnamon from now on!.

Interesting, the QM has less sugar (much!), and more fiber - slightly less protein. It's nice to know there is a sub out there if I run out (saves a lot of standing, reading labels in the supermarket)...

Comment #19

Buy a new microwave. Microwaves are pretty cheap..

Get rid of that dinosaur...

Comment #20

That really sounds good with the banana mixed in with it. I'll try it this morning. Thank you for sharing!..

Comment #21

I add a little less water than called for and cut the cooking time in half. Works for me!..

Most food companies websites have complete nutrition label info online. It's been really handy when I've had to enter foods into my online food diary...
