I prefer my steel-cut oats "crisp-tender" -- one of the best things about them is that delicious popping texture in your mouth! This produced overcooked oatmeal, in my opinion, and very muted, bland flavors. I had higher expectations.
I halved the recipe and used my 8 cup Pyrex liquid measure container inside the crock pot. It only took 6 hours to fully cook. The flavors were ok - this is not very sweet and I couldn't really taste the maple. The oatmeal was nice and creamy; love those steel cut oats. To bring it up to 5 stars I think I'd need some cream and brown sugar.
