Dead in less than two years!

I purchased this multi cooker in August 2021, and 16 months later, I have an “E4” error message. The unit is now useless, and Sunbeam don’t repair them.

Until then, it worked perfectly and I couldn’t have been happier, but I don’t believe that a $200 appliance should be a disposable item. It should still be working, or be able to be repaired affordably.

This seems to be a common issue, so Sunbeam ought to address it. Show details

Sunbeam Aviva Pressure Cooker lid labelling disappears

Very disappointed that after wiping lid with soft cloth, as per your instructions, the label advising 'to seal' disappeared. I would appreciate if you could please advise how this can be rectified.

Game changer

I’m super happy with my pressure cooker. I’ve had it for over a year now. It never failed me and cooks everything I need in fraction of the time I’d need on the stove.
The only minor issue is that it started leaking from the valve recently, however this doesn’t affect its functionality.
I used it as pressure cooker, for browning, stew in, simmering, you name it. The only thing that it didn’t cope was cooking rice, but I have a rice cooker for that.
Really happy with my purchase Show details ·  1

Disappointing

Good as a pressure cooker. Safe.
Simmer, saute and brown functions Are not very accurate - simmer is too high.
All the writing on the lid rubs off in no time so I’ve had to write on the lid now, where to align for seal or open!
Impossible to clean the main unit efficiently around the lip where the lid sits and the Non-stick cooking insert is badly scratched even using wood or plastic kitchen utensils.
I expected better from Sunbeam. Show details

Really easy to use

Comes with a neat little book to get started on slow cooking
Really useful been using it for around 5 months now, press a button, go to work, come home to fully cooked beef stew.
Don't really use the pressure cooker often just out of fear. We've had personal friends who've lived the horror stories you hear on the internet

Pros:
It's not expensive
Easy to clean
You'll take all of 15 mins to learn how to use it (just read the manual, seriously)
You'll get as much out of it as a Roomba if you spend most of your day at work.
You'll get just as much if you don't find cooking therapeautic

Cons:
It's pretty big, don't bother if you don't have the space or won't be using it often
The bottom feels slightly cheap so you have to be careful Show details ·  1

Every effective

Usually use it for Indian cookings. Very easy to use. Easy to clean by only hand wash. Not dishwasher safe as mentioned in the manual. The pressure cook and brown mode is really good. Show details

Non stick flakes off in bowl

Seems to work ok but the coating inside the cooking bowl flakes off. The replacement bowl is about $50. We always used the proper spoons etc in the bowl so it wouldn't scratch. Reading other reviews this seems to be a common problem but Sunbeam will not replace under warranty without a receipt (unfortunately we didn't keep it). Bottom line, the bowl will need to replaced after a few months of regular use, during this time i guess the coating mixes with the food which surely can't be a good thing.. Avoid this product. Show details

Very disappointed!

I bought this one month ago and some functions are fraud. The sales refused to change to a new one for me as it seems fine. Not recommended at all! Show details

Very poor quality, leaks steam

Leaks steam the whole time it's cooking. Poor quality and not fit for purpose. Returning to store for another make. Don't waste your time with this one. Sunbeam are a bit hit and miss with their products. Show details

Useful until it died a beeping E4 death

I purchased this item last October from MYER in Highpoint, Melbourne and have only started using it recently. It was great however now when I turn it on it beeps continually with an E4 error. I’ve tried all of the tips to get it back but to no avail. It appears to be useless now and I’m incredibly disappointed. Prior to the beeping death it was really very useful. I made pot roasts, congee and stock which were great. It was really quick, a but noisy but no more than expected. Show details

Hi, mine has been intermittently coming up with an E1 error code for some time, that relates to a sensor problem. It quite frustrating to come home expecting dinner to be ready, only to see the code flashing and knowing that what was to be dinner has to be thrown out.
Any idea what this problem is specifically and whether it can be repaired or the unit is now garbage?
