Should I get a slow cooker, pressure cooker or multi cooker?

Versatility


Consider buying a slow cooker if you:
- Are part of a busy household and don’t have time to cook in the evenings, but can spare time to prep ingredients in the morning
- Don’t mind waiting 8 hours for meals to cook (you can turn it on before going to work and arrive to a tasty home- cooked meal)
- Have plenty of freezer space, as slow cookers work best cooking large volumes.


Consider buying a pressure cooker if you:
- Don't enjoy planning meals in advance, and eat a lot of last minute meals
- Dislike waiting around for your food to cook (pressure cookers can effectively stave off a ‘hangry’ mood)
- Don’t mind staying in the kitchen to monitor steam pressure.

Consider buying a multicooker if you:
- Have a large family or household with different favourite foods and taste preferences
- Will regularly use the bulk of features offered, as some models can be expensive
- Don’t mind the potentially tedious task of cleaning the various detachable parts of your multi cooker after using it.

Are multi cookers worth it?

Each model and make of multi cooker can perform different functions. Most perform dual slow cook and pressure cook functions (or, they can cook 'fast and slow.') Other more expensive models are equipped with plenty of pre-programmed menu selections that let you cook entire meals at the pressure of a button.

Ultimately, you should select a multi cooker that offers cooking functions that you actually need. As an example, if the only available one-touch buttons are for making yoghurt and poultry, there's no point going for this model (compared to one that simply slow cooks and pressure cooks) if you're a vegan.

Pros

  • Frees up space in your kitchen, as even if you’re buying a multi cooker to replace a pressure cooker and slow cooker, you’re reducing the clutter that comes from storing multiple appliances.
  • Saves money - as rather than purchasing multiple appliances, you can invest in one device that performs cooking functions you’ll regularly use.
  • Versatile functionality means you can have the best of both worlds – such as pressure cooking a quick dinner for two on a weeknight, or slow-cooking a feast for guests on weekends.
  • Pre-set programmes let you to make specific foods at the simple touch of a button. Programs available include soup, curry, bread and yoghurt.
  • Healthier food preparation is within sight, thanks to catered cooking methods that reduce the amount of oil and fat that would be needed on a stove top.
  • Batch cooking allows you to cook large volumes of food in one preparation, especially if your multi cooker features a higher capacity.

Cons

  • Less precision in cooking can be encountered, especially when compared to an appliance that’s custom built to perform a single function, for example bread making.
  • Can be tricky to clean - as multi cookers require disassembling into smaller individual parts in order to be properly cleaned. Look for multi cookers with dishwasher safe parts.
  • More expensive than a standalone slow cooker, pressure cooker or air fryer.
