I finally did a search oatmeal to find out the difference between rolled oat, quick oats etc. I couldn't understand the comments that soaking oats makes them cook up faster then not soaking. I was think "how much faster do you want them to cook up? Impatient people are we."

Now I understand that is referring to steel-cup oats since they are not crushed like rolled oats. Got it.

oat groats arewhole hulled oats, steel cut oats are oat groats choped into a few pieces, rolled oats are groats that have been steam rolled I think (and cut into pieces)...maybe some types do non-heated rolling?? And instant are rolled oats that have been cooked then dehydrated. Oh, and quick cooking are just cut thinner than rolled.
