Very sad. Not happy.

Broke not even a year old. Won’t pressure cook. Yes I did all the tricks and I did use it properly. I really love the stainless steal bowl. Lost receipt can’t return. What a waste of money.

I’m thrilled with my machine. For those that can’t see the number display, make sure you remove the label covering the screen. U can’t really see the label but it’s there. Hope this helps.

Display doesn't show time during pressure cooking

I have similar experience for cooking lentils. Whatever I press, the screen always has 8888, not the figures I can read. I am not sure it is faulty one or something I did not do correctly. So disappointed.

I spend the whole day and night to cook rice, cannot adjust cooking time. Whatever I press, the screen always has 8888, not the figures I can read. I am not sure it is faulty one or something I did not do correctly. So disappointed.

Love it! Wish I had bought it sooner.

I have a slow cooker, a rice cooker, soup cooker and pressure cooker and not much space to store them. My other problem was all of them had small capacity so I invested in the Phillips All-In-One Cooker. Totally impressed! I’ve made soup, chicken casserole, chicken bone broth by slow cooking and pressure cooking and all turned out perfectly. It comes with two inner 6 litre pots, one of which is Teflon coated and so easy to clean.
The recipe book is rather basic and instructions could be better but youtube video sorted that out quickly. Sauté function works well and one of the best features is that when the cooking time is finished, it immediately goes on to warm function. Overall a great product and I would definitely recommend it.

Buyer Beware - Philips Worst Pressure Cooker - Lemon

published

We had the previous model and loved it. We decided to upgrade, unfortunately what a disappointment. The touch screen has been problematic from month 3. Normally take 5 or 6 turning off and on to make it trigger the start program. It now has decided to not start. The touch sensor is clearly a manufacturer fault. Our family has always supported Philips small appliance, it’s a shame we have been let down this time.

Good buy, no regrets!

published

The AIO does what its supposed to do. The results are great.
Meats cook very well on pressure cook mode and is a very handy and a convenient appliance to have in the kitchen

The recipe book is a bit disappointing with a very few recipes included, would have expected more.

So easy to use

published

We bought this model after I thought my old one had broke, but infact I wasn’t putting the seal ring in correctly, so now I have 2 pressure cookers. I love this modern model better than the old one because the electronic touch pad is easy to use. I love the diversity of how you can have a curry cooked in an hour or you can cook a soup throughout the day on slow cook.

Very happy with our purchase. Cooked a silverside and it was very tender. Can whip up a meal when I come home from work and have it on the table in an hour.

Very annoying that I have to go through the motions time and time again just to get this machine to start. The start button will not work straight away. The panel is not great.

I have been using my all in one cooker for over a year now but last week I came home to find the screen had fogged up on the low heat slow cooker.
Since then I have tried to use it twice and in both instances it turns it’s self off to just power at different cooking points.
Today I have tried to slow cook low heat for 8 hrs, turned off after 4 hours, slow cook low heat turned off after an hour and a half, slow cook high heat, turned off after 5 mins and currently on slow cook high heat for 2 hours to try and get this meal cooked.

Everytime I use the slow cook option, it takes forever to cook the meal. Tonight i made apricot chicken, it was on slow for 8 hours and high for 1 hours, the onion was still opaque and not cooked through. Thankfully the chicken was but it shouldn't have been like that after so long on a simple recipe that said cook 4-8 hours. This is not the first time I've had this issue with this "multi cooker ". I've never had any problem with slow cooking in other basic slow cookers before.
The pressure and yoghurt work OK. Takes forever to come up to pressure though.
