    Keep wasting sachets of porridge by them overheating loads in microwave and overflowing. Given up doing it in a bowl do it in a big jug and still overflows. Only put it on for a min tried with different temps of water... What am I doing wrong? Any tips gratefully received!

    i do mine on the hob chick, only heat it until it bubbles, put it in a bowl and give it about 5mins to thicken a little :)

    I had the same problem and it sounds crazy but now I have it in a cup, a 'cup-a-porridge' lol. I just make it in a mug the same I would a hot shake and I don't microwave it at all, it thickens after a minute or so and for some reason I like it better this way.
