Good versatile product

4/5
I originally bought this for cooking rice which it does very well. I also chose it as it has a variety of other functions including steaming, and baking as well as making soup - which i have yet to try but look forward to experimenting with. I do have to mention that I had a previous Cuisinart rice cooker which I loved but stopped working. The rice cooking times on this are much longer, it takes 45mins no matter how little you cook which is disappointing. The product itself is also very big and takes up a lot of space. But overall a good value for money product.

Fantastic Multi cooker

5/5
I was originally looking for just a simple rice cooker for my wife but the good ones seemed a bit pricey for only one function. It made much more sense to spend a little more and get a multicooker, and after some research the Tefal came out as being one of the best for the price. I've so far used it to cook basmati rice, chicken byriani, spicy vegetables and fish. The controls take a little getting used to and the included instructions are in very small print. The default settings for standard things like rice or baking vegetables generally work OK but you need to monitor and adjust timings to get the particular results you want e.g. I like my veg nice and soft but my wife likes then crunchy, so less cooking time is required. The cooking chamber is nice and big and feels very solid. It would have been nice to have some handles that could be clipped on to help with lifting it out of the cooker. Cleaning is easy and most parts will go in the dishwasher (or wash by hand). The sturdy handle means the cooker can be placed anywhere there is a mains socket. Unfortunately the mains lead is quite short, but is a standard 'kettle lead' type so can be replaced. There a many features I've yet to try but this is a great cooker. You just need to spend a little time learning how to get the best results for you.

Quick , easy and useful kitchen appliance!

4/5
So I have had this just under a week and I can honestly say I'm glad I have discovered it! I'm a bit of a slow cooker fan ( I have 2 ! ) but this may of just replaced one if not 2 of them! So to start I tried porridge, while I was busy getting lunches ready and making sure children were all ready this little beauty cooked my porridge with no fuss at all and kept it warm so I could eat when I wanted with only a bowl to clean which by the way is amazingly easy to clean! Next I did a beef casserole , chucked it all in and used the preset time suggested, near the end I popped the steamer bowl on and steamed some cauliflower pulled it all out and served. Next I did vegetable soup , nice soft veg ready for me to blend. Spaghetti bolognaise went down a treat! No burning , no sticking and very tender chicken when I did chicken casserole in an hour. One pot wonder in no time! I am looking forwards to trying out some of the sweet dishes / cakes too. For me it lost one star on the recipie and instruction book, there could of been so much more information on basic recipes and ideas. Also the big pot could do with a handle to lift it out with and inside possibly a little pot to collect condensation that doesn't escape out of the vent. Overall an all round useful machine that with a bit of time and practise could be my most used item in the kitchen. Would recommend this to family and friends.

Good cooker Saves on using loads of pans!

4/5
So far so good. Instruction manual could be a written a bit better as it is rather complicated to understand. Loads of different functions to use which will and has been trial and error to get right to make meals and use the cooker. Ive used the dessert function and baked a cake which came out perfect no burning or sticking to the side. Which is brillaint! Using the fry bake and stew function to make sweet and sour chicken pasta bake. Winner with the kids. No need to use 3 pans either like usual. Just one bowl to wash up. The bowl is really easy to clean and is non stick so everything comes off with one wipe. Ive made rice pudding using the recipe book which is included. It makes no noise except the beeps when finished. So can cook at night without waking the whole house up! The keep warm function is great for making porridge and having it warm and ready when needed. I like how I can cook all in one go (spaghetti Bolognese bake) without having to precook the pasta. I have yet to use any of the other functions but I'm sure as the days go on I will be using most of them. A few down points hence only 4 stars. Bit misleading saying 45 in 1. Yes it does have loads of different ways to cook stuff but it is just one machine with different functions would say 10 to be honest. No handle to get bowl out to serve. I know it says use oven gloves but would be easier to have something to lift out while it is hot. Other than that i think it is a bit hit for our kitchen to use. Saves on electric!
