- Several times a week (5)
Very Disappointed, purchased this because of size, no custom setting and slow cooker 1 level only, will be returningI purchased this last week due to the larger size, I already have a Breville -5.7 litre which has a custom setting and 2 levels for slow cooking. Reading before I purchased this I thought it had 2 levels for slow cooking but it doesnt, there is no custom setting and the preset times you cannot go down (only increase in time) which is pathetic as I find rissotto cooks in my breville in 4-5 minutes once to pressure, this is 20 minutes, i can only imagine what a soggy claggy mess it would be, I made pea and ham soup tonight which turned out undercooked, tried to cook it again and it just stuck to bottom of pan 1cm deep brown burnt, waste of money, will be returning as so hard to use compared to the Breville.

I feel misleadI bought this appliance particularly for the slow cook function and unfortunately this product has only one temperature setting for slow cooking. Advertising indicates cooking in general can be adjusted by temperature but it turns out that low medium and high settings refer to saute/seer, sauce-thickening, hot pot and jam settings only. I would like to slow-cook on a really low temperature but this slow cooker works at 90 degrees centigrade and increases to 95 to 100 degrees in the last 20 minutes of cooking. Nutients are not optimal once they ... Read morereach boiling point. I am so disappointed since this product was purchased for health reasons. Our meat stew was not tender after 12 hours of slow-cooking, possibly after being over heated at the end of cooking. I am so disappointed I was convinced by phillip's misleading statements on their packaging and documentation. I will be returning this product to store after one use only.
A bigger version of great!I've had two of the 6 litre models of Philips All in One for some years now and absolutely love them. The latest, 8 litre is just as good and has a couple of new features I particularly enjoy: the cord inlet slightly off to the side (rather than right round the back) means the cord stretches further to plug in. And the sauce thickening function is excellent. I love the tough coating of the new-look pro-ceramic inner pot - much hardier than the old version in the 6 litre models. And the extra power means sauteing is quick and crisp, and pressure is reached really quickly. For big cook ups, a clean kitchen and a stress-free cooking experience, you can't go past this model.

Great machine perfect size for batch cookingI have enjoyed cooking with this machine love the ability to saute in one pot then cook and sauce thickening setting is good. I find it hard to convert recipes as I cant adjust the slow cooker temperature. can you tell me if the set temperature is equivalent to the low or high setting of other slow cookers. Thank you Show details · 1
How did I go so many years without this product??I’ve had the 8L Philips all in one and it has made cooking so easy. From fall off the bone lamb shanks to tender massaman beef curry and rice, this can do it all so easily.
The only thing I couldn’t figure out is how to select high or low temperature for the slow cooking function. It appears to only have one setting.
Is there a way to select high or low temp for this model? Show details · 1
Good pressure cookerThis is an easy to use pressure cooker. I use to cook ‘one pot’ meals, soups and sauces. I’m yet to really dive into the baking function.
It is large and heats up quickly.
It is easy to clean and doesn’t retain smells or flavours from previous meals.
I appreciate the ceramic coated inner pot - as opposed to a regular non stick pot. I have also purchased a second stainless steel pot so I can cook more than one meal.
I have found that sometimes it doesn’t come up to pressure if the inner pot is too full. I’m not sure if this is a safety feat… Read more · 1ure perhaps. This is annoying because it effectively means the food is cooked twice or three times as I have to restart it again and again. I have also noticed that the vent has a slight leak and dribbles a small amount of hot water or steam when it is under pressure. I didn’t have my previous pressure cooker do this. Again I’m not sure what is causing this as I have cleaned and tightened the vent and it still does it. Overall I am happy but sometimes find the large amount of functions are a bit superfluous. I do like that it is a slow cooker as well as a pressure cooker.
It’s amazing! Saves so much time in the kitchenIt’s an amazing machine to have in the kitchen. I previously have the smaller model and this one heats up even quicker. It’s larger size is wonderful especially for steaming and cake tins. The extra functions such as sauce thickening and hotpot have been good. It also preheats quite quickly and comes to pressure quickly. I really have enjoyed using it in the kitchen. Show details
Love it!I love this machine, i’s so user friendly and easy to operate. I’ve had the previous 6 litre models and love them too, but this one is so much bigger & more powerful. I love meal prepping and cooking large batches of food to freeze for convenience and this pot does it all. Set and forget technology at it’s best. Philips have really taken the guesswork out of this model and made it so easy to use with all these preset buttons. I no longer have to stick around the kitchen waiting for dinner to cook as I simply select the function, hit start th... Read moreen walk away - sometimes not returning for hours and hours and I know that it will be keeping my dish at a safe temperature for when I return…it’s fantastic! It maintains the perfect temperature to ferment my super probiotic yoghurt, it’s hot enough to bake a cake in it, the sauce function reduces and thickens my gravies after pressure cooking a lamb shoulder and roast chicken, and best of all, clean up is a breeze with this non stick inner pot as food never sticks to it. This pot is a game changer in my kitchen now and after using it for a couple of months, I can’t imagine life without it. Thanks Philips for another superb appliance!

I accidentally damaged my multi cooker and had to purchase a new one, so I bought the bigger size. I'm now left with the stainless steel and the non-stick pots for the smaller version and would like to be able to use them rather than just putting them in the bin. Can they be used on stovetop or oven? Could I offer them to someone on this forum who maybe needs a new pot? Seems like such a waste!
Unfortunately they are not suitable for stove top use.
Hi, thank you for reaching out. The pots are indeed not intended for use in an oven, so hopefully you can find someone that can use one.
