Excellent for time poor, hard working parents & shift workers

From rice, to biryani, soups, stews, curries, & stroganoff - deserts and puddings the Tefal work for me, saves time, has recipes and softens root vegetables & pulled meat quickly & keeps it warm until you're home. Show details ·  1

I use it to cook everything from roasts, to soups, to stews.. Highly recommended, you won't be disappointed!

Lamb shanks and roasts fall off the bone with only an hour cooking time (unlike using and oven). Beyond satisfied with this machine, it takes pride if place on my bench. Show details ·  1

The best money I have ever spent

This is by far the best appliance that I own, the in built recipes are so easy and the food tastes amazing. This is the only appliance that lives on my bench and it is used multiple times weekly.  Show details

When using the classic cooking function should the life be closed

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?

Thank you. Based on product description and user manual, model CY851130 is equivalant to CY851560 / CY851860.

Just wondering what happened to my review here!

We would not trust it to cook while no one to supervise it. Failed and gave it away. Our 55 year old Hawkins Pressure UNIVERSAL LGH 2340 AG cooker is still being used and reliable..

Features

  • 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.

Points to Consider
