Slow cooking problems

My multi cooker works fine on all settings, bar the slow cooking settings. It gets to maintain pressure but never goes any further. Lid doesn't seal.
Have tested on other functions and it seals.
Is the lid meant to be loose or sealed? Trying to slow cook beef cheeks Show details

Have also had the lid replaced on the 2nd one
Both cookers, the steam escapes from under the lid
Everything is checked and the lid put on properly, but is still happening
The 2nd one is now out if warranty
I give up on this brand...time to move on to another brand !!! Show details

There are better manufactured cookers

I bought a Phillips multi cooker and it would be the worst manufactured piece of cooking equipment I’ve ever bought. The door constantly gets jammed and it makes no difference if you even wait overnight. There’s no pressure left in it. It just doesn’t work right and the only way to remove your food is to drop it at an angle to release the catch.
I’d never buy another Philips product again, especially given the cost of the thing in the first place. Cooking rice is the most fun. Usually takes anywhere between 6 to a dozen drops to get it out. Show details

Had to be repaired TWICE within 12 months of purchase

I don’t recommend. TWICE my cooker has just completely died mid slow cook. Philips customer service is absolutely TERRIBLE completely unhelpful. I’ve had to drive 40 minutes one way to drop the cooker for repair and then back again. Twice in a year to me is a defect but not to Philips apparently as they would rather me just drive all over Perth to continuously repair the item. Show details

It cooks just fine. And food is delicious- if you can get it out

I have to repeatedly try to unlock it.
It’s just poorly made.
Very dissatisfied. Show details

Not enough control over settings

For slow cooking and pressure cooking, this is great. The yoghurt function works perfectly, I have been making yoghurt for over two years from the same culture using this cooker.

The shortcomings are about control and clarity. For example, the steam function does not let you go below 5 minutes. If you steam asparagus or other lighter vegetables for that length of time, you end up with mush. The minimum time should be zero minutes. Once it gets a head of steam, they are done.

Another example is the saute/low setting. This is actually a pretty high, and there doesn't seem to be a "simmer" level of heat. It would be great if you could just dial in the temp you need. Show details

A worthwhile purchase

I like this multi cooker because I can brown meat before I move onto the slow cooking process. Also it cooks rice well. I don't like the small hard to read display. I could be clearer and perhaps in a larger font. Show details

Excellent product

I've only used the pressure cooking and it's extremely fast heat up, maintains heat well after finished cooking and is easy to clean. There's a splash guard internally on the lid to help keep mess to a minimum. Highly recommend this product over others in its class. Show details

Easy to use and clean, simple clean up, plus free recipe book!

This is the best multi cooker with a slow and pressure cooker in one, accompanied by x2 saute functions taking less than 3 minutes to heat up and a non stick inner pot. Cleaning up is also extremely easy. I have loved cooking using it's included +200 recipe book. My fav. recipes include making yogurt (x3 diff. varieties), creamy delicious seafood linguini (pasta cooked to perfection) and all there soups. The Philips multi-cooker is able to regulate the temperature for up to 12 hours post cooking. This recipe book is also available online. You can even bake cakes or make delicious sweets as well. Highly recommend this product. Show details ·  1

Details

Features

  • A 6-litre capacity provides a generous amount of cooking space to prepare meals for a family of 4-5 people - or 2-3 people, with leftovers for the next day.
  • Cooking functions include slow cook, pressure cook, saute/sear, steam, bake and make yoghurt.
  • Slow cooking times are programmable up to 12 hours, with an adjustable range of high settings from low to high.
  • 7 pressure cooking modes allow for versatility in pressure cooking, allowing you to fast cook a range of foods.
  • The Keep warm setting kicks in automatically after the cooking time is finished (excepting yoghurt and saute/sear). Keep Warm stays on for 12 hours until switching off.
  • A stainless steel outer body pairs with an inner cooking bowl that’s coated in 5 layers of ceramic. Philips states that this ceramic coating is stronger than most inner pots, which are made with a non-stick coating.

Points of Praise

  • Above all, reviewers loved that the Philips Original All-In-One Multi Cooker prepared well-cooked, tender food that tasted delicious.
  • The pressure cooker function is a particular fan favourite, as it cooked food that tasted outstanding, and quickly.
  • Reviewers appreciated the set-and-forget functionality, particularly those who had previously used a stovetop pressure cooker, which require something of an eagle eye to cook with safely.
  • This multi-cooker is easy to use, even for those who are using an electric multi cooker for the first time.

Points to consider

  • A number of reviewers didn’t agree with Philips about the quality of the inner bowl. Home chefs stated that the ceramic coating is thin and doesn’t last very long. Some opted to buy an additional stainless steel bowl to replace the original bowl with.
  • When the timer is activated using the saute function, it won’t count down unless there is no food in the bowl - meaning you’ll need an alternative timer if using this function.
  • The lid and sealing rings retain the smell of foods cooked inside the multi-cooker, however this doesn’t taint the taste of future dishes prepared inside the appliance.
