So useful!

Have had my multi-cooker since May 2018 and the longer I have it, the more I'm using it. I love the ability to slow cook or to pressure cook. I love that you can sear your food - no more grey slow cooked stews! Right now I am reheating some chilli, that cooked for 12 hrs on low - smells amazing! I have found that you can use recipes online that are for what the Americans call an Instant Pot. The Instant Pot is almost identical to the Philips All-in-One. There are so many recipes on Pinterest and other recipe websites like Yummly. One small issue is that the lid does tend to retain smells, but if you give the seal a soak in warm water it fixes that problem. There are also lots of tips and hacks to find on Pinterest to help with these issues. Some of the recipes I have made that have been really tasty are, Taco Lasagne, Instant Pot Creamy Chicken Soup (https://www.eatwell101.com/instant-pot-creamy-chicken-soup-recipe) - this was so tasty, (although you might want to go easy on the cayenne - I used half what was recommended and it was quite spicy) and Instant Pot Chicken Alfredo (https://www.thereciperebel.com/instant-pot-chicken-alfredo-pasta-pressure-cooker-pasta/) - this one had my husband surprised that I had made it from scratch and hadn't used a jar! I also make a delicious shredded beef for tacos with the pressure cooking function, and shredded chicken using the slow cooking function. It is my most used appliance - it's great for summer as it doesn't heat up the kitchen! Totally recommend this appliance for anybody who wants to spend less time in the kitchen!

Cook made easy

I have been using my new multi cooker over this winter so that I can still eat healthy. Every week I find another meal to cook chicken, shanks, mince I get the packet sauces and I also use frozen vegetables.
I find that once I have put everything in the bowl and programmed the cooker I can leave it and do what ever else I need to do and just enjoy the smell that is coming from the cooking. I find that the 20 min timer is all I need to use as that cooks my meals perfectly and its just such a great thing to know that if I leave it on warmer after its cooked it doesn't ruin the meal just keeps it warm. I love my multi cooker and I will be using it for as long as it goes and even then I am sure I will re-invest in another,
I love how easy it is to use and clean and the meal it cooks are great. Buy one and try yourself.

QUITE DISAPPOINTED

I was quite excited to get the one cooker to replace two slow cookers and a pressure cooker I had. The pressure cooking aspect of it worked very well however the two times I have tried the slow cooking, after releasing the valve it has spewed out a lot of liquid and I mean a LOT. It had taken quite a while for it to stop and it made a huge mess. It wasn’t filled over capacity and I followed all instructions. I tried twice to contact the Phillips customer care and have not received a reply. I rang the store where I purchased it from and they advised I should return it. She also told me the same thing happened to her. I think I will be sticking with a separate pressure cooker and slow cooker. Very disappointed with the product and lack of reply from Phillips.

RECIPE BOOK ENCLOSED WITH THE PHILIPS ALL-IN-ONE COOKER

Purchased a Philips Multi Cooker through TVSN in June 2019 - have used this twice with no issues. Made a lamb stew and a lamb and barley soup - both in super quick time compared to using the stove.

However, the recipe book included in the package is very limited and there does not appear to be anywhere on the Philips site, or any other site, that advises where you can find recipes that are really of any use for a multi cooker. I stand to be corrected, if anyone can point me in the right direction re this matter. Will be tuning in again to TVSN next Monday hoping to learn more about the machine and what it can produce.

Would love to find a web site that give full information on the items that can be produced from this product.

Not good as a rice cooker

I needed a rice cooker so thought I’d pay the extra and get a multi cooker, however, it’s been very disappointing to find that the rice is hard and stuck together at the bottom of the pan, I followed the instructions exactly. I tried with a bit more water but no good, it was mushy. Also it takes a long time to warm up and begin cooking, I tried putting boiled water in to speed up the time, didn’t help. If you could give me any tips to make nice rice in it I’d be very grateful.

Hi Linda, thanks so much for sharing your experiences here. We regret hearing that you've been a bit disappointed in the rice from the All-In-One Cooker. For rice cooking, follow the water level indications on the inside of the inner pot. You can adjust the water level for different types of rice and according to your own preference. Do not exceed the maximum quantities indicated on the inside of the inner pot. The recipe for normal rice can be found here: https://philips.to/2QJiHYJ. Hopefully, this will lead to better results. If you require further assistance, don't hesitate reaching out to us by phone (1300 363 391 for AU, 0800 658 224 for NZ). There, we’d be happy to assist you further. Kind regards, The Philips Australia Team

Didn’t last long

When it worked it was great. Lasted one winter and then stopped reaching pressure. Lasted 1 year and 2 months. Used a handful of times. Asked to take the cooker 45km away for a service, which I cannot do. Waste of money. Really disappointed with this! Philips will only replace if within a year.

Best machine / a life saver

The viva 2237 machine is seriously the god scent in my kitchen. I think it must for every kitchen . It amaze me that one machine can do so much bake / steam / pressure cooks / slow cooks / sauté / makes yoghurt . As a mother , time is sometimes hard to get to cook a nutritious/ delicious family meal . I love i can do pressure cook meals within minutes and it’s full of flavour nutrients for my family . I love i can sauté food in the pot with a timer as a mother to a toddler sometimes i have run off and glad this has a timer as save me loads of time without burning my food . I totally recommend it for anyone .

Master of none.

While this cooker cooks soup and other liquid food very well and fast.

Normal rice doesn't seems to do well here.

I have tried many different water level for cooking rice. You either get a lot of base of rice really dry and hard. Just lack of black color to call it burnt. Or if you put enough water to not have it dry out the part of rice in contact with the pot inside. Then you get very soft sticky rice.

I, along with many I know who are from the same ethnic like their rice to be firm and falls off each other easily. Adding water to prevent it from pre-burn just to get a sticky soft rice seems underwhelming.

I am sure risotto would work fine.

I have cooked Japanese rice too. And because Japanese rice needs to be soft and sticky, I added enough water for that purpose. I still get preburn bits but not as much.

My husband have been cooking lots of liquid food in it such as soup, porridge, gravy etc. And all liquid food had turned out well. Things to note though. As with most pressure cooker. With the lack of fire heat it seems many food just lack an x Factor in taste. But of you want quick food that's what you get. Not the fault of this particular brand whatsoever.

The built quality seems to be on the softer side.

We didn't drop or have any blunt impact on the cooker. However, my husband once tried to squeeze it into a drawer. The width is just nice if you put it in an angle. But with a wrong angle slide in admittedly mistake on our part. This little mistake caused a big dent in to the cooker from the side.

From then on the pressure function haven't been working well and we can only use it to cook rice which in itself is really not great in the first place.

Your honesty is appreciated, although we would have liked hearing you were a great fan. ;) We're sorry to hear you didn't quite like the rice that came out of the cooker, especially since rice is that important in your family. Did you check the manual for instructions on how to prepare rice? https://www.download.p4c.philips.com/files/h/hd2137_72/hd2137_72_dfu_eng.pdf I hope this helps you a bit. Kind regards, The Philips Australia teamYes I followed the instructions but the results is still unsatisfactory. It's a shame because I have always been a fan of philips product. This just came out lacking.Hmm alright, Sapphiree. Thanks in any case for trying again and for leaving your honest feedback. We're sure the product team are taking notes. If you still like someone to take a closer look, please don't hesitate to reach out to our consumer care colleagues, if you're think we're missing something, for instance.

Kind regards, The Philips Australia Team.

Most used appliance in my kitchen

My boy Burt bought me this for Christmas 2016 and I make a weeks worth of dinners for him (and our much younger girl) every week. I've just discovered the benefits of bone broth, especially for senior canines and it couldn't be easier. The humans love what I've made for them in it as well. Australia Day long weekend it was going from 4pm Friday to 5pm Tuesday and I was able to fill the freezer with 40+ portions of doggy dinners as well as 10 portions each of lamb korma, beef stroganoff, pork chilli & chicken for my husband who is on a lo-carb kick. The only rest it got was while I was cleaning the detachable bits between dishes.

Hi there, Thanks for sharing your experience, and what a great gift to to get from your son. It's great to hear that your All-In-One Cooker is helping you make all these great dishes. Even your dogs are able to enjoy the benefits from it. We hope you'll be able to continue making lovely dinners for them (and the humans). ;) Kind regards, The Philips Australia Team

One of the best things I have ever purchased

This is one thing I will never regret buying. I bought it for around $150 two years ago and is still as good as brand new. I have used many electric cookers before but nothing is even closer to this one. You wouldn't need a cooking range and sauce pans since this serves the purpose of everything. Love it and is highly recommended.

Very good but needs tweaking

Good, and I use very frequently, but a steam basket insert would be great, not so happy with pressure cooker side of it, so much slower then my old pressure cookers and don't like the lingering smells in seals, have to keep removing and soaking

This is great. Can’t live without it

Had this for over 2 years and it has become a staple product in my kitchen. Used every 2nd day at least. Makes chunky chicken soups, casserole beef, chicken Curry’s in a quarter of the time. For soups, I seal the lid and pressure cook and Curry’s I use it as a saucepan. Has quick cooking time to sauté onions etc for bases then add the rest of ingredients later. Totally love it. I have recently replaced the non-stick insert for the new stainless Steele one and it works perfectly. Easy to use a great product

Ok but expecting it lasts a bit longer

Worked great when it works. However, it failed after three year usage sparingly. Yesterday, while I was in the middle of cooking, the electrical component just failed and no longer turned on after plugging in. For a 200 dollar cooker I would expect it lasts longer than my 5 year old 20 dollar kettle.

Great machine. So easy to use and I use the pressure cooker feature all the time.

I have been very impressed with this machine and I am trying new recipes with great success. I recently made an amazing seafood chowder using the stock I made from bones and heads of fresh fish and prawns. I am still trying other features but very happy so far. Very easy to use and clean.

Very Handy House hold item

This is not your normal cooker. It can do a lot of more stuff and you will get a free recipe book with it to make some some lovely dishes. Easy cooking, put everything in cooker and it will be ready in due course. Easy cleaning and all items are easy to clean. You don't have to stand there during the cooking, like normal cooker.

Good product.

Easy cooking

Love to be able to put everything in the cooker and the food will be cooking itself. No need to watch the stove, and more cooking overflow from the stove top. Great taste, can cook anything, soup, stew, cake, dessert, rice, etc. Can't imagine it can do many different kids of food.

Latest Consumer Questions

I have purchased HD 2237. How to cook perfect rice. What is the proportion of rice and water. How much time to cook. Also how to release pressure. Natural release or quick release. I am struggling to find perfect combination considering that Philips provides no guidance in this regard.
2 answers
I use 1:2 ratio of rice and water. 1cup rice-2cups water and it cooks perfect. It takes atleast 20-25 mins to preheat, pressure cook and release the pressure. I normally put the delay timer on before I leave to work in the morning so that the rice is ready for kids by the time we reach home.Thanks Priya. How much cooking time and pressure release method ?

I would like to know what temperature this Philips All In One Cooker gets to when in the yogurt mode? I wish to make yogurt with pro-biotics added. Can you tell me what temperature the philips all in one cooker sits at when making yoghurt. I have purchased the HD 2237 model. Thank you.
