Use it multiple times week

published

I don't know what I did without it. I make risotto, cook corned beef, lamb shanks, whole chicken and the best soups and stews. So easy to use, even the kids can use it

So convenient and easy to use

Very happy with our multi cooker. Even with a chef in the house. The ease of use and ability to set and leave is amazing.
We have made casseroles, soups, bakes and lots of other recipes
Super easy to use and clean and no residues taste or smell after each use

Best appliance I have purchased in a long time

published

I am able to cook nutritious flavoursome food in such a short time. I no longer need to cook stews and casseroles for 3 hours plus to get the flavour and tenderness in the meat. Now it's done in less than an hour. Has given me time for other things instead of watching the pot on the stove to prevent it from drying out and burning.

Fantastic product

published

We recently upgraded our old 70’s style crockpot, and decided we would stay with the same brand.
Im so glad we did. It is so versatile, and simple to use, simple to clean and food tastes amazing.

I have made roasts, stews, cakes etc in this cooker and don’t have a complaint at all. We wash the bowl in the dish washer making clean up a breeze

The controls are easy to use and instructions are easy to understand.

Nice Multi-cooker... failed after two years

published

Nice device.

Failed after two years, and now trips the circuit breaker if turned on. Tested in a second house and trips their too.

Anyway, it cooked quite a few nice meals, but I expect an appliance to last at least 5 years.

I've picked up a 2nd one on Ebay for half price - opened box, but never used.

If that lasts longer, I will revise my review to 4 stars in a couple years. There are multi-cookers for half this price, that would last longer.

It is possible I have just been unlucky. If my next one fails early, I'm done with this brand, and will be switching to Phillips, albeit at twice the price.

Very Sad to give this rating - Was working well then had issues

published

Purchased 12 months ago, have to say I loved it, easy to use and clean. I noticed that the silver was wearing around the control panel. The past few weeks the pressure was taking more than 20mins to build. Then e6 error came up and burnt the bottom of the food. Will be replacing with another brand.

Makes my life so much easier!

published

I love using it for stewing and pressure cooking. Makes my life so much easier as I can make delicious ribs within 30 minutes or one of my favourite curries and leave my house without worrying about it. Very often I would leave it on overnight to wake up to a delicious smell of slow cooked beef. There is so many good recipes online or on crockpot’s social media channels- my new favourite one is potato’a and egg salad which you can cook together in 10 minutes!
I wish it could have a glass lid but I guess the build is restricted by pressure cooking.
Minimal maintenance as it’s very easy to keep it clean.

Purchased in at Appliances Online for $119.

Product has a poor design

published

In the first 3 days, I ended up on my third one as they first 2 were faulty. The third one worked twice before the lid seal kept falling out. Taking it back for a refund to go to another brand. Also the extra capacity doesn't seem accurate as it holds exactly the same as the 6L to the max line.

DOESNT DO EVERYTHING WELL

published

HAVE TRIED A FEW THINGS
1.The vanilla cake was a disaster..didnt rise and inedible
2.Cooking a casserole steak curry required 1 hour on pressure cook mode
Would have been simpler and better slow cooking
2.Pea and ham soup good but needed longer cooking than Rx says
Have yet to try slow cooking or pressure cooking lentils..hope this is better because I could have bought a standard Sunbeam slow cooker for $39 instead of paying $169 for Express 300

Never got to use the junk

published

Put the lid on in the lock position, never came off again.

Now waiting to hear from CrockPot on what to do next. The device didn't even get turned on so there is no pressure issue involved..

Note, it got a 5 for safety because you ain't ever going to get that lid off. Will never explode on you! The blisters on my hands trying to open the bloody thing though are another safety matter!

Fast, Efficient, Easy clean quality

published

Quality product in a size large enough to make family sized meals. So far have made a great corned silverside and a beef ragu, both in record time. Meat was succulent and easy to pull. Pressure builds very quickly. Cleaning is hand wash, but the non-stick surface of the internal pot makes it easy. Pressure lid and seal break down quickly to allow through clean. Looking forward to trying slow cook and rice features. Recommended!

Love it! Makes cooking fun again

published

I was so impressed, I bought two. One for me and one as gift. The pressure cooker is definitely the most used component as it saves so much time and I am working my way through the online recipes and loving them. They work out like I am an expert chef. I had my original crockpot for 41 years and I am hoping this one is as reliable. The wash up is easy. It is the most used appliance in my kitchen. I am loving all the winter meals and soups that are made so much easier. I am about to do smokey BBQ pork ribs. Can't wait. Did the thai pumpkin soup last night - it was delicious. Very happy with my purchase.
