Quick Oats Portable Porridge are individual servings of porridge that can be quickly prepared by adding milk and popping in the microwave for 90 seconds.

Alternatively they can be prepared by just adding hot water and stirring. Available in three varieties Original, Strawberry and Organic, they have strong appeal to those who care about their diet and are looking for a healthier alternative for on-the-go eating due to their easy preparation method and portability benefits.

Made using 100% wholegrain and organic porridge oats, Quickoats portable porridges are free from artificial additives, are low in salt and saturates and are an excellent source of dietary fibre.

"Quick Oats Portable Porridge are individual servings of porridge that can be quickly prepared by adding milk and popping in the microwave for 90 seconds."

Wow, what a monumental product.... it saves precisely 60 seconds over the alternative MUCH cheaper method of preparing the original stuff in a microwave! The bowl to eat it out of would even serve as the dish, so not even any more washing up!

See the recipe on the quick oats manufacturer's own site!
http://www.flahavans.com/product/ which says: [FONT=Tahoma, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][SIZE=2]
"Microwave on High for 2 ½ minutes to 3 minutes[/SIZE][/FONT]" (850W machine)

.....and that is for TWO portions!

A quid's worth of standard Porridge would last weeks!

Can't believe it saves sooo much time that people can't tip some oats in their own bowl and stick in the microwave.
Getting a panful is a pain, but you don't even need to do that anymore.
I have to do two bowls in a morning, one for me (oats > milk > bowl > microwave 3 mins) and wife (readymade oats > milk > bowl > microwave 3 mins)
one cost x times as much and save precisely 0 seconds!
:whistling:
I guess its easier if you make them outside of home though.

The biggest reason I used them was because you can make them with boiling water, ideal for if like me you do not have a microwave at work!

Porridge is dirt cheap, probably about 5p worth in each pot. Your basically paying for the convenience of a disposable bowl, which is incredibly wasteful and ungreen imho.

Save your money and buy a plastic clip shut box for £1 and reuse that, just stick it in the dishwasher when you wanna clean it.

It actually doesnt, think the pots have dried milk in them, and when mixing with jam or honey its rather nice!

I don't see why - because it's water that goes in it? When I make porridge normally it's only oats and water that go in the pot. Tasty. :thumbsup:

I agree you are only paying for the convenience of the pot - but I suppose for some people then it's a price worth paying.

You can even make it from part or all water if you want from standard porridge oats, although I don't (well didn't as I am recently on a permanent Low carb diet!)

I am all for a bit of convenience myself, but this has to be the least time saving "convenience" product I have ever laid eyes on, with the possible exception of a frozen omelette that takes much the same time as it would to cook from scratch, although even that saves on washing up!
