Some of us eat oatmeal year round for the health benefits, so it's not just a seasonal dish. And, some people are not that fond of a cold cereal for breakfast. If using a crock-pot makes it easier and will encourage someone to eat a healthy breakfast more often than if they have to do it in a pot on top of the stove ... well, what's wrong with that?

Which is why I prefaced my comment with "I don't know about you".

I tried Alton Brown's recipe without the dates, just 1 cup of steel cut oats and 4 cups of water and it looked done after 3 hours. All the extra water was gone. I added some brown sugar like I always do and tried it and it seemed like there was some crunchiness to it - like there were some grain shells, not like Captain Crunch, but not like regular oatmeal. Since this is Wyoming, maybe I should add more water and try to cook it longer. Also, I'm also thinking it might be a good idea to put a 120v timer in the circuit in case I don't make it home in time to turn it off. Of course if I do it overnight, I can always set the alarm. I'll bet Bill Gates already has that one figured out in his house.
