what is the highest temperature setting for auto stir function?

2 answers

Sorry, I cannot help. My machine is gone. The instructions were too complicated, and most times the machine did not respond, however many times I entered the sequences. I only used default settings.

Hi Mack.

The highest temperature setting for using the auto stir function is 160 using the fry/crust option.
The temperatures can be selected as follows: 100, 110, 120, 130, 140, 150, 160.

Hope this was helpful for you.

If you’re interested in finding further information about the settings, temperature and recipes, you can find on the Tefal website below, options to download a PDF for the Instructions & Manual & also Recipes.

I have written a "how to complicate your cooking" review on the Multicook and Stir. I redrew a properly labelled function panel on Weetbix cardboard, because the printed instructions are ridiculously tiny and one has to flip the page constantly. It didn't help much. I think the machine takes time to react; slower than one can push the buttons. I did the sequence over and over, but really had no confidence it was working or correct. I spent hours trying to work it out. There were a couple of disaster results. In the end I just kept leaving it and hoped something would happen. I suspect some of the recipes are incomplete. At times the English translation is poor and makes no sense at all. The machine is gone now. I dreaded using it.

Q- I am having difficulty sorting out the controls ie understanding the function panel.
A: Use the instructions booklet as a guide. That’s what I did with the first couple of uses.

Q - how do I select what I want:
A: This depends on what it is that you want to cook.
What particular menu options is it that you’re having difficulty?

Q- if the stir light is on is it working or waiting for me to do something.
A: The Stir function will begin when you close the lid and press the Start button.
To cook without the Stir option, remove the stir paddle & de-press the Stir button to turn off.

Q- different result between crust fry and baking.
A: Crust/Fry function is for frying, browning meats, sautéed onions and vegetables etc. Baking is for Cakes, Bread, Roasting etc.

Q- set the delayed start.
A: This is explained in the instructions booklet.

My MultiCook & Stir review gives you an idea of what menu options I used for cooking different foods.
I also have a couple of short YouTube videos showing what options I selected to cook with. Which may be useful.

Hi Catherine.
The MultiCook & Stir does not do pressure cooking.
Tefal do have another product which is a pressure cooker and it’s called Cook4Me.
Hope this helps.
