Style over substance.Cook4Me+ CY8518 (Black)
I've had this one for a few years now. The searing brazing function isn't that great, you have to turn it to high to get anywhere and then is seems very intermittent in the bursts of heat. The rubber foot at the front of the pot comes off and you have to remove covers to replace it. The menu system is convoluted, way to many steps just to turn it off let alone do anything complicated. The bowl loses it's coating too easily, handle ends came off ( just as well the handles leak and get grungy inside!) . It routinely complains about low fluid leve... Read morel when it is in fact OK. Finally it is now losing far too much moisture during cooking (1.5l in less than an hour), the seals seem OK, the inner lid has been cleaned and checked but the problem continues. It works OK but really I think you can do better. I am replacing it with the Phillips or the Breville. I will not be purchasing again and frankly I will be down rating Tefal in general due to this experience.

This cooker is ideal for those wanting to cook nutritious family meals during the week but have little time. There are about 80 programmed meals, controls/screen is clear and simple, so following the recipes is easy. Just select a menu item or use the manual mode to your preference. The food is always cooked perfectly, veg don't melt but meat become so tender. During the week, i use this for soups, veg casseroles, meat dishes, beans and legumes, cuts my cooking time and saves time on clean up as you can brown and cook, no other pots/pans needed... Read more and wash up is a breeze, wipe down lid, wash the pot and done! I'd definitely recommend this to anyone wanting to still cook great meals without the hassle and time but also to those who use traditional pressure cookers, this is a much safer alternative with the locking mechanism and display to tell you when the cooker is safe to open.

family time saverCook4Me+ CY8511 (White)
I love cooking but I love it more when something else dose it all for me. The C4me is just as described. I've tried meats, risottos, soups, chicken dishes, desserts and cant fault the complete job it does. Great for winter cooking!
Pros: all recipes are there you just pop ingredients in, follow the prompts, all the settings are there to add more cooking time if needed. Cuts time down when cooking cheaper cuts of meat makes everything tender and saves you money!
You walk away while it does its thing and get on with another job or grab a vino and
I have made mostly soups, but have made stews, sauces, curry, rice dishes. no matter what herbs/curries / spices you use the smells wash out, very happy /satisfied with purchase, I got my Tefal Cook4me for Christmas & I love it.. it saves on time, having to chop things up as small.. it has over 100 built in recipes from starters to main meals, plus you can add your own favourites, cooks for up to 6 people. & holds appro 6L easy to clean, I use it at least 2-3 times a week more in winter as I make soups etc....

Questions & Answers
When using the classic cooking function should the life be closed
Also leave a gap if you wish to close the lid down somewhat. eg leave the stirring spoon sticking out.
I would think that If you do close it (accidentally) AND there is sufficient fluid inside AND pressure builds up, then it may need letting it slowly depressurise by turning C4M+ off. Sometimes you can catch it in time by turning the main top lid knob. (or attempting to turn - but no force!)
There is NO separate Steam Release access as it is automatically programmed into the other functions.
If there was insufficient liquid in your Classic cooking job AND the lid was closed, it would trip the error message that means "insufficient water" and auto depressurise.)
I'm european (Romanian). My Tefal Cook4Me+ model is CY851130 and the simmer function does not work as I expect it to.
I expect simmering to allow me to reduce the liquid. However, after 10-20 minutes of water simmering, I don't observer a difference in liquid level. There are only a few vapors and the temperature stays under 75 (tested with a laser thermometer)
The water with simmering program is reaching temperatures similar with "gentle cooking" program, only suitable for poaching.
Am I missing something, or it could be a defect?
Hi Ciprian, thanks for reaching out. We recommend using the browning function if you would like to reduce the liquid. Unfortunately, we do not have that model # here in Australia so it would be best to reach out to your local Tefal to verify the temperature.

Thank you. Based on product description and user manual, model CY851130 is equivalant to CY851560 / CY851860.
Just wondering what happened to my review here!

- Functions as a pressure cooker, steamer, rice cooker, and saute, allowing you to simmer, brown, bake. There’s the option to use either the pre-programmed recipes, or a Manual function.
- A 6-litre capacity provides plenty of cooking space to make meals for 4-5 people.
- Equipped with over 150 meals, including starters, mains and desserts. Follow the instructions that appear on the LCD screen. When your part is done, you can set-and-forget the multi cooker, which will then ‘cook for you.’
- The Tefal Cook4Me+ is designed to take the guesswork out of cooking - adjusting the time, pressure and temperature. It will also inform you of the quantities of ingredients needed, after you program it to know how many people or guests you’re cooking for.
- Each pre-programmed recipe varies in cooking time, with plenty of recipes able to be prepared under 10 minutes.
- Recipes are also available on the Cook4Me app, allowing you to ponder what will be on the dinner menu before arriving home at night.
