If you liked programing a VHS Recorder this is the pot for you
I feel dreadful, it’s the kind of feeling I get each Christmas when my much loved relatives give me a present. My immediate family and I get a great laugh each year about how much we hate the presents. But we love the thought, and it's the thought that counts.
I was given the Tefal Multicooker & Stir and well it’s only April but it feels like Christmas to me.
Its a non stick pot with a timer and a paddle.
You can make the decisions about how long you cook, and at what temperature (just like a pot on the stove) but with added advantage that it will stir stuff continuously for you (or turn off the stir paddle and it will not).
Purchased in April 2019.
Questions & Answers
what is the highest temperature setting for auto stir function?
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.
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 a cook4me which is fantastic, now I have a multicook and stir I am having difficulty sorting out the controls ie understanding the function panel how do I select what I want and if the stir light is on is it working or waiting for me to do so ething, what is the different result between crust fry and baking how do I set the delayed start ???? Help
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.
