What You Need
  • 2 Cups Old-Fashioned Oats
  • 3 3/4 Cups Water
  1. Pour 2 cups Old-Fashioned Oats into the bottom of your Instant Pot Stainless Steel bowl.  Our 3 3/4 cups water over Oats, stirring to incorporate all oats into the water.

  2. Replace your Instant Pot lid, making sure to set your pressure valve to Sealing.  Use the Multigrain setting, adjusting the timer with your +/- buttons to three minutes.

    Helpful Tip:  Once you start to hear pressure building, like the steam is trying to escape, place both hands on either side of the lid and quickly press downward.  Don’t allow your hands to linger, since it may be pretty hot by this point, but the quick downward motion of the lid will help it seal faster.

  3. As soon as the Instant Pot pressure cooker is complete, switch your pressure release valve to Venting for a Quick Release.  Make sure to always shield your skin from the escaping high pressure steam!  To protect your upper cabinets from the steam, position the pressure release valve as the steam escapes away from the wood.

    Helpful Hint:  Unplug your Instant Pot for a faster Quick Release.
