Makes delicious dishes
Wide range of cooking functions
Generous 6-litre capacity
Inner cooking pot isn’t durable
Was great at the start
When I first purchased this product 2 years ago it was fantastic. I now find that after about 20 mins on the pressure setting the machine beeps and turns off. I have checked the lid and that seems ok. Any suggestions PHILLIPS?
Purchased for $239.00.
Longer pressure time needed?? No help
Not happy that I can’t pressure cook longer than 59 mins. YouTube video shows you can select manual and then select 1 hr 30 mins. But can’t change the time.
Best appliance for the kitchen
I bought this a couple of years ago and didn’t start using it until a year ago as I have been unwell and couldn’t do much cooking manually. I bought this at The Good Guys and can’t fault it. The functions are straightforward and the cook book that comes with it encouraged me to be more creative. We have saved a lot of money cooking beautiful food at home. Can’t believe how easy it is to stew, bake, pressure cook. The lids and pot are easy to clean too. I have had to buy spare parts on the Phillips Australia website as I dropped and warped the inner pot. The parts I bought online were genuine and came relatively quickly in the mail. Absolutely love it!
Purchased in January 2017 at The Good Guys.

Does this multicooker have a bake function for cakes etc and does it air fry... as I’ve seen another brand that does both of these but the Phillips has very good reviews... thanks Kaz
Not sure about baking, but it definitely doesn't air fry. From my extensive research and other readings the consensus is that: those models that do air frying don't do a good job in comparison to two separate appliances. In addition, two separate appliances that will do a better job cost less. Hope it helps
Thanks, I’m now looking ninja multicooker. The reviews are very good, though the air fryer, still good is slightly slower in the multicooker from the review Cheers
Hi there Tatte,
Thank you for reaching out. Good news: you can also bake using the multicooker! You can also steam and even make desserts with it. Pretty versatile, may we say so ourselves.

You can do so at 1300 363 391 (Australia), or 0800 658 224 (New Zealand) from Monday to Saturday: 7:00 am - 7:00 pm EST. They will be happy to help you out.
The Philips Australia Team
- 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).
- 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.
