Quick Grits in Rice Maker - Who has done it?

I usually have real grits, the ones stone-ground at an historic mill, sitting in the freezer ready to cook in my Zojirushi, fuzzy logic rice maker at one part grits to two parts water. Grit success has always been achieved with the real thing.

Today I do not have real grits. But I do Aunt Jemima's Quick Grits, and they are warming up in the batter's box.

Directions indicate FOUR PARTS WATER to one part quick grits. I'm on edge with THAT much water.

Anyone ever cooked quick grits in a nice rice maker?

What do you think about four cups water per one cup grits?

Thanks,
Tom

But it only takes a few minutes on the stove ...

I make quick grits all summer for the grill but use 2 cups of liquid to 1 cup of grits. That gets you to basically a cookie dough consistency, if that helps. Don't usually eat them "regular."

I'd like to avoid stirring

Thanks, but the cool thing about using the rice maker is that I never have to stir rice, polenta, or grits. Grits will stick like grim death to a stovetop pan without frequent stirring.

Question Answered

I just stirred down tonight's effort - The rice cooker kicked butt, and is keeping some awesome grits warm for tonight, and, after cooling in the fridge tonight, tasty fried grits for another day.

Four cups water is not too much liquid for one part instant grits.

The stirring is not an issue to me. They never burn. Some sticking on the bottom sometimes but never anything like grim death. The dishwasher addresses that.

I suspect the quick grits ate difft because I used regular once and they were a pain.

Glad to hear yours came out well.
