- Quick-cooking oats become mushy.
- If the oatmeal is still very watery after 1-1/2 minutes, continue to microwave in 30-second increments, stopping between sessions to stir, until almost all of the water is absorbed. Microwaving for longer than 2-1/2 minutes nonstop tends to cause the oatmeal to bubble over.
- Other dried fruits can be added or substituted for raisins.
