Large capacity for big feasts. The 3.7 litres capacity mixing bowl gives you plenty of room for all your ingredients. With it being a slow cooker, you can leave it to bubble away, creating your favourite dishes. Ideal for risotto and stew. It also has a steaming tray, which is just what you need for vegetables and fish – trapping all the nutrients as it gently cooks them. And for that extra peace of mind it has cool touch handles, so you won’t have to worry about singed fingertips.
This is the review of the Sage By Heston Blumenthal Multi Cooker BRC600UK in Silver.
First impressions are the unit is sturdy with some sensible features, such as the removable power cord. Perfect for removing and taking the whole cooker to the table with the handles which keep cool. The glass lid helps keep an eye on the food whilst it cooks as lifting the lid will extend the cooking time. The steaming basket fits well but the wire handle seems to stop the lid from closing fully, perhaps this is a feature but I doubt it. Perhaps it's just my cooker. It also comes with a rice spoon and measuring cup which is not a standard cup measurement but specific to the cooker. The cooking bowl is easy to remove and clean. I would recommend a plastic ladle so as not to scratch the non-stick. A simple safety button under the bowl stops the unit being operated with out it.
The instruction book is a easy to follow but I would have liked to see more recipes as there are only a few. The accompanying website does not have many either. Hopefully, because this is such a new product it will expand over time.
Cooking features include risotto, sauté/sear, rice/steam, high and low slow cook and are selectable with the buttons along the front, the start/stop button is also on the panel. When a cooking programme completes the unit will automatically drop into the "keep warm" feature.
We have only used it a few times to make a risotto and also a couple of curries. The risotto was different to the when I make one on the hob but was ok. With practice it will be perfect. The curries worked really well, the slow cooking brings out all the flavours of the herbs and spices. I haven't tried the cooker as a steamer yet but I have no doubt they will turn out fine.
Would I recommend this product to someone? Yes, I think I would.

Very good device
I've used this for Risotto, Saute, low and high Slow cooker - and the results have been absolutely as fantastic as the other reviews.
Fluffy Rice setting (steamer) is a bit of a nightmare. I'm looking at what I am doing wrong. you can't press the Rice/Steamer and walk away. it stops after a few minutes with the rice utterly uncooked. I have to saute the rice/water, the Risotto until it stops then put it on Steamer. it then produces great rice. but not a simple as it's made out
Pros: Ease to use, Good build quality, Looks good, Value for moneyCons: Stem Rice doesn't work simply
