Oatmeal in a Rice Cooker

I have a sanyo rice cooker that has a porridge cycle, but isn't programmable. I've tried cooking steel cut oats and setting it on the porridge cycle to cook, but the bottom of the oatmeal always ends up burnt or very crusty and hardened? Have any ideas on how I can fix this problem? Is it because I don't have a fancy model?
