    Hi: I always add the milk right before taking it off the stove. Helps cool it down a bit and it doesn't get scorched. Some things you may want to try in your oatmeal are chopped canned peaches or whole raisins with a bit of cinnamon sugar added - yummy!

    Don't boil it. Milk burns easily. Check out the source website for more help.

    If you use half milk and half water, you'll have the great richness of the milk and it won't burn at the boil.

    Whisk it or simply make sure that It does not touch the bottom moving too much,like shaking it
