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

published

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.

Cooks rice like a champ

published

We needed to replace our ancient rice cooker but since we also wanted a slow cooker, we decided to buy this All-In-One! We use this several times a week. For a start, it cooks rice SOO evenly and fluffily. Even our 10yo daughter commented on how nice the rice came out!! The rice doesn't burn, cake or dry out – it's just perfect. The minimum amount of rice it cooks feeds 2-3 people with some leftover for an extra meal. It takes about 20 mins to pressure cook. Clear instructions provided, and easy enough to take apart and clean. Admittedly haven't had a chance to try fancier meals with it yet, but it's already a great start and we're very impressed so far.

Multi Cooker is good but spare parts is an issue

published

Our Philips multi cooker works really well, I am using it from last 2 years. Recently, we had an incident where it was kept on induction and induction got switched on. By the time we saw the bottom plate got damaged. I am not able to find any spares for it. I ordered one from Statewide but they sent wrong one. They sent me bottom outer black peripheral part, but I needed the one in center which gets screwed on to protect wiring. The one came from Statewide costed me $27 as it includes postage charges. I am disappointed to see that for such a product there is poor after sales service.
Philips any help?

Works great for us

published

Its been about a month and has been great in our kitchen. However, I'm not sure about the time it takes to cook. We cook rice often and I thought the whole process would take 14 mins but it actually takes more than 30 mins. Before the 14 mins timer starts, it's stuck on heating for about 10 to 15 mins. Is this expected?

So far so good...

published

Just purchased this pressure cooker, the only complaint I have is I cant seem to find good recipes on u tube clips like the croc-pot one. I want to cook the quinoa and I have no clue how. A bit hard to navigate how to use it. Im a bit concerned about the lid issue too. As there seems to be a lot of complaints about it...hope I made the right choice.

Great cooking companion!

published

This multi cooker is all that I need to make easy family meals. I mainly use it as a slow cooker and I love how you can sauté onions and garlic directly in it prior to using the slow cooking function. The less using pots and pans the better! The quality of the meals is excellent and the cleanability is easy. It is a great size for a family of 5, which we are. This multi cooker is completely trustworthy!

Great multicooker!

published

I’d previously had a Breville Pressure/multicooker for almost 8 years before retiring it, she served me well. I’d looked at getting the latest Breville but it didn’t have great reviews so after a bit of research I settled on this model.

I’ve owned it for a couple of years now and Phil has served me well. I use it just about every other day, functionality is great, perfect for winter meals & soups. Also great for rice dishes, risotto and sushi rice. I recently just started making home made yoghurt as well and it hasn’t disappointed me yet. There is a great Facebook group for users of Philips pressure/multicookers If you’re after support. I’m looking at getting Phil a big brother, the 8L version soon.

Good. But Could Be More User Friendly

published

An easy solution to meals. Does exactly what it promises. I make lots of meat and vegetables casseroles. Excellent.
Only complaint is it could be more user friendly and more intuitive. ( Plus how about more decor style!)

How do I cook brown rice successfully in the all in one cooker as the timing is not adjustable? Why are there no instructions for cooking basics like pulses and rice, only recipes for meals?

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.
