Is instant oatmeal fully cooked? Can one make it on Shabbos?


The reason "instant" oatmeal can be prepared without a long cooking process is not because they are cooked at the company but rather because the company cuts the oats a bit finer and rolls them somewhat thinner so that they'll cook more easily. Accordingly, one may not prepare instant oatmeal (or any other kind of oatmeal) on Shabbos.
