Do you have a preference between "steel cut" versus "stone cut" oatmeal?

Either eating as oatmeal, or in a recipe (e.g. cookies, breads, etc.).

My default is usually steel cut, but I'm wondering if I should expand my oatmeal horizons a bit ...

    I've never heard of "stone cut" oatmeal. Is this something that's relatively new on the market? How does one cut with stones?

    I do love steel cut.

        stone-ground, perhaps?

            No, stone cut.

              I'd be willing to bet that if you put them side by side with steel cut oats that you couldn't tell the difference.

                there is no way you could do anything to oatmeal to make it worth $10 a kilo...and that includes serving it to me in a solid-gold bowl with a side of Champagne.
