  1. In the pressure cooker, combine the water, oats and salt.
  2. Cover and select the Programmable function on LO (low pressurization). Set the machine to cook for 12 minutes for an al dente texture.
  3. Let the pressure release manually to avoid overcooking the oatmeal. Remove the lid and mix well. Let rest for 5 minutes.
  4. Garnish with maple sugar, dried or fresh fruit, or nuts, if desired.


Steel-cut oats are also called Irish or Scottish oatmeal. They are made using the whole oat that is then cut into small pieces using a steel blade. You can replace steel cut oats with large flake oats. In this case, you will have to reduce the water to 2 cups (500 ml) and also the cooking time to 2 minutes.
