If you left it cooking over night, would you come down to a lovely creamy instant hot breakfast or a burnt lump of oats?

They make decent porridge. Give the whole lot a good stir, plenty milk, lowest setting and it will be good.

hmmmmmmmm. You can make rissoto, so no reason you couldnt make porridge. But overnight might be too long - if you have a plug in timer, I would set it to come on 4 hours befor you want to eat.

Failing that, 3 mins in the microwave....

it would be more trouble than it's worth when you factor in the washing up. Just nuke it in the microwave

Washing up? that's what a dishwasher is for.

But porridge is so quick and easy to make, even on the hob!

oh, we don't even eat porridge. It was a random musing i had and it resurfaced as I read another thread about not having had time to get a good breakfast into children before school.

SoupDragon, y'know not everyone lives in a 'house of the future' with mod cons like dishwashers, working electricity and radiators that actually heat up grin

I don't have double glazing, if that helps...
