oatmeal in a rice cooker?

I have a panasonic fuzzy logic rice cooker that is awesome for steel cut oats. It even has a timer, so I can put the ingredients in at night, set the timer, and it will be ready to go at the time I designate. It's awesome.

If you have a fuzzy logic rice cooker like mine (I got it at Williams Sonoma a couple years ago), here are the the instructions:

1. Using the measuring cup for the rice, add 1/2 a cup of oats and 1 cup of water
2. Set the menu to Brown Rice
3. Set the timer for the time you want the oats to START cooking (the cooking takes 40 minutes, so account for that when setting your timer).

Voila! Perfect, chewy, delicious steel cut oats. I haven't tried cooking them with anything else in there (dried fruit, etc.) but when you cook them this way (without any extra stuff) the oats come out perfect.

The cooker I have is a 5 cup cooker. If you try to mess with the proportion, or change the amount, you'll get a horrible mess, but the 1/2 cup to 1 cup ratio works perfectly for two normal sized servings or one GIANT serving.

I once tried to double the recipe, and piping hot oatmeal shot out of the top of the cooker all over my kitchen cabinets. It was not the best thing to wake up to.
