Terrible, does not soften and feels like your eating a crunch bar
Inconsistent quality, but still well worth buying.
Lots of reviews here seem to praise these oats, whilst just as many seem to criticize them for being too chewy and not absorbing the milk. This is no surprise to me really, since I have been buying these oats and the previous 'Everyday Value' branded ones for a good few years now, and have always noticed that the quality can vary quite considerably between batches. This has become even more noticeable since the branding changed from 'Everyday Value' to 'Grower's Harvest', but never have I found the oats to be bad enough to justify complaining about them. For the price they are a bargain even if the packs you get turn out to be a bit on the chewy side, and if you get lucky and manage to land yourself a decent batch, then they're every bit as good as the more expensive brands.

These are good, great value. Soak overnight in water for a really creamy taste, excellent for flapjacks.
Essential Idiot proof guide to cooking
Oats are Oats regardless of which label you buy they are all the same. They are milled exactly the same for human consumption if you are having trouble getting good cooking results then I suggest you soak the amount you want to use 20 to 30 minutes before you microwave, soak in water or milk medium cook for two minutes leave for five minutes stir they should now be ready to eat. If the result is not what you want then go back to the tried and trusted method of cooking on a hot plate/cooker top, if you still cant get it right then I suggest you spend your life paying well over the top for idiot proof only prepacked one person microwave packs? Spend a bit of time trying to figure out what you are doing wrong, not all microwave ovens have the same power settings? Enjoy
Great product at a great price
I love these. nowhere near as chewy as jumbo oats. I soak them in semi skimmed milk overnight in the fridge, and in the morning I warm them up in the microwave. Add a few raisins for flavour. Delicious!
Lucky to get a one star chewy and don’t soften awf

Super quality. Please get eco friendly packing tho
My daily breakfast now after years of Scotts. Would dispute the cooking instructions though - 1/2 a cup oats to 3/4 of a cup whole milk for 4-5 mins in my 900w microwave set to medium gets the perfect result every time. No need to stir in the middle, just do that before serving. Goes great with sliced dates and honey. The one reason that I haven't given this 5 stars is the non-recyclable plastic packaging though. Even if it were to cost more there's no reason it can't come in cardboard or an alternate eco-friendly material.
Tastes like sawdust
These are nasty. They have changed over the last few months and, instead of tasting malty & absorbing the milk like good oats should, these taste of sawdust & don't absorb milk. Yech! Won't buy again.
Used for porridge with milk everyday - cooked in the microwave. It maybe does take a little longer to become creamy (but its worth it for the small price) A larger bowl can be used so it doesn't boil over. Fantastic in cooking (flapjack, crumble topping etc.) The only negative is the plastic packaging - Tescos could change it to stiff paper.
Why the plastic?
Stopped buying it because it comes in plastic.
