Not really a 10 in 1 cooker
1. Rice mode good.
2. Risotto mode good.
3. Soup mode good.
4. Baking mode not very practical. Oven cooks better.
5. Slow cooker mode totally unusable. Only one setting (very high), overcooks everything.
6. Reheat mode ok.
7. Milk/Porridge mode ok if you do not use the bowl for anything with flavors.
8. Yoghurt mode good if you do not use the bowl for anything with flavors.
9. Crust/Fry mode not very practical. Crusts damp and difficult to remove from bowl.
10. Keep warm, works......

Perfect..so cheap and so convenient
I got it as part of the corporate reward and within few days fallen in love..
It’s so convenient to clean, uses far less oil and semi pressure cooker takes far less time. It also has slow cooker and browning feature..
Just perfect for everyday cooking. It’s look fragile and is fragile for heavy duty work but for this kind of price, I really do not care..
One appliance - multiple options
This Tefal is great. Can cook in the one pot. Bacon. Brown onions. Steam vegies. Soups. Rice dishes. Can cook individual components in the one pot! Easy clean up. Haven't used all functions yet! Nice easy appliance that you can pick up and put into cupboard after using it! It's great!
The Perfect Rice Result
This is what I have wanted for so long.
A rice cooker which performs A+ for even Blind Freddie.
Separates perfectly, correct texture, can't speak more highly of.
Just hope it can continue!
Haven't used other features yet, the only other function I will be put to use is the steamer, so it doesn't have to be Houdini.
A great appliance.
I bought this appliance for Christmas, to replace a cheap Kmart rice cooker that finally died in the middle of the December. I considered buying another cheap rice cooker for around $40, but I was tired of water spattering onto the bench top and rice sticking to the pot, so when I saw this one on special at Myer for $99, I thought I'd give it a go.
It's great! The rice comes out perfect each time. No more mess on the bench if we cook just a little. The delay-start function is brilliant, allowing me to come home to freshly cooked rice. The co...oker itself holds the heat really well. I cooked some rice last week and took it to an elderly couple that I visit. The rest of the food wasn't quite ready, so we ended up eating about an hour later. The rice was still hot and fresh in the pot. If it keeps working like this for a long time, it'll have been worth the money!
A dream appliance for healthy meal prep
This machine does exactly as it claims. Its perfect for healthy tucker preparation. Steaming veggies, cooking porridge, steaming rice and pearl barley are all simple and easy with perfect results. The operating instructions are simple and the cooker is easy to use if you follow them. Its actually quite hard to stuff anything up. We've made soups, stews and casseroles easily as well risottos from time to time..All these were made from scratch and were all tasty.. We haven't baked anything in it or made any yoghurt yet but the reheat function is ...a champion. To top it all off its very simple and straight forward to clean up. Although the appliance construction is generally very robust, my only silght concern is the quality of the coating on the removable pot. After over 100 uses, the teflon seems to be wearing and scratching off. A replacement pot doesn't seem to be available sadly. In any case, this Tefal RK705s is great value for money. A real "go to" kitchen aid !
Questions & Answers
I can’t find the cleaning instructions - how do I clean inside the lid where the steam might collect ?
The cleaning instructions are in the manual. You remove the entire seal and floating aluminium section from the lid and that gives access to the steam vent out of the lid that can also be removed and cleaned.
Look at page 3, it is full of diagrams. If you look at step 3 it will provide you with the guidance you need.
If you need the manual it can be downloaded from the Tefal web site.
Does anyone have the same issues as me with the slow cooker mode?
There seems to be no control of the heat in this function, it seems to be stuck on High.
If you attempt to slow cook anything on high for 4 hours you will burn everything you attempt to cook.
I think this product should be called a 9 in 1 as the slow cooker is a waste of time (or am I missing something).
