Very disappointed

1 out of 5, reviewed on Sep 04, 2018

I bought this cooker and have had no luck i cooked beef after sticking to the instruction it was not cooked. Then i cooked the lamb korma to the recipe it came out watery and the meat not cooked properly. I cooked corned beef on slow cook for 8.5 hours and still not cooked properly i had better luck with my $20 slow cooker from k.mart i am so disappointed what a waste of money.

Extremely happy with this cooker!

5 out of 5, reviewed on Sep 01, 2018

I purchased this cooker 2 weeks ago and I'm so glad I chose this one. I previously had a Breville Versa Cook, which I thought was okay (until it died), but this All-in-one takes cooking to new heights for me. I had previously been nervous about pressure cooking, but no more. This cooker makes sumptuous meals in very little time and I find it very easy to operate. I have even made cakes in it without changing any part of the recipe. The interior bowl is easily cleaned and doesn't smell, even after the messiest dishes have been cooked in it. I anticipate many happy hours cooking with this device. I thoroughly recommend it to anyone who may be sceptical about pressure cooking.

Useless POS - Phillips Outsourced support are useless

1 out of 5, reviewed on Aug 29, 2018

- Wont pressurise properly (only gets to 01 or 02 max!)
- Lid wont open for 30+ Minutes after cooking, pressure release/unlock doesnt work - trapping food inside
- Called service centre who didn't offer any troubleshooting and who after 3 phone calls could still not provide me a correct phone number for a philips service centre in NSW Australia, They didn't even have a street name just 'Shop 26'

Third time lucky

4 out of 5, reviewed on Aug 28, 2018

This was my third pressure cooker in a short time. The Breville Fast Slo Pro was taken back as it wasn't coming to pressure and the Cuisineart worked well but was cutting out occasionally. So finally I went with the Phillip's AIO. It hasn't missed a beat and I use it most days. Curries come out perfectly and I am making yoghurt twice a week. The yoghurt recipe in the book comes out very runny. Found another recipe online and it comes out perfectly. The instruction book needs more general guides as to how long to cook different foods under pressure but I have usually managed to find what I need online. There is also conflicting info whether to seal or vent for yoghurt (I seal). Facebook groups have been very useful too for recipes and guidance. Overall have been very happy with it. Would give it 5 stars if the instructions were better.

Use it regularly

5 out of 5, reviewed on Aug 23, 2018

very easy to use, sometimes it's difficult to get to come to pressure again after the meat is finished and you want to add some veggies at the end. not sure if this is my fault or the machines. I've used it to make yoghurt as well as meals and it worked great ( pot in pot ) Cakes and cheesecakes came out good. Never used the slow cooker function, I just don't see the point

Good...BUT

4 out of 5, reviewed on Aug 02, 2018

Yes...good...HOWEVER...having problems whereby the cooking process starts, yet the floating pressure valve has not risen...in other words, it is not pressurizing. Also, when it intermittently DOES pressurize, the pressure escapes through the vent valve. I have tried cleaning etc to no avail...not happy...when it works, it is great, however you don't know whether it is going to work or not...

Great cooker

4 out of 5, reviewed on Jul 28, 2018

It's not harder to use, but you need find more recipes to know what you can use it to cook also the cook time is hardiest part for me, it need more experience, but it is really good cooker it can slow cook or high pressure cook , for the price I'm really satisfied with it, it not really hard to clean, but my only concern is about the rubber seal things, it is bit hard to clean after using few times, but it's not big deal. Just wondering if we can get get the deal parts somewhere.

I don’t get it

2 out of 5, reviewed on Jul 14, 2018

I needed a new slow cooker but splashed out and spent big on this for the pressure cook function. I just don’t understand it but the meat is never that great. My husband said that it always tastes like the cooked meat has been chucked in at the end of everything else being cooked. It falls apart but is slightly dry and there is zero depth of flavour. This has been the case with several different recipes and types of meat. Very disappointing for the price, given we could get this flavour with our old $20 slow cooker. I wouldn’t recommend it.

Not an Instant Pot, but it will do.

3 out of 5, reviewed on Jul 08, 2018

I used to own an Instant Pot, but was not able to find one when I moved to NZ. This Cooker is okay, but here are the things I don't like about it, having previously owned an IP: 1) I really miss having stainless steel pot. I could use my immersion blender in the stainless steel pot without any fear of scratching the pot surface. Not so with this pot (which already has slight scratching after 8 months of every-day use, and I only ever use plastic utensils in it and have never used the immersion blender in it.) 2) I have to babysit the valve. When it comes up to pressure, I always have to adjust the valve because it releases too much steam even after it has started pressure cooking. It is a slight adjustment, but one I have to make, which means I need to pay attention to when it has reached pressure. 3) I hate having to press "Start" after having gotten used to being able to set the time on an Instant Pot, and it starts on its own after 3 seconds. 4) I can't adjust between normal and high pressure like I could with an Instant Pot and 4) I don't like the extra step of having to remove the attachment inside the lid for cleaning after each use. Here is what I like about it: 1) While it's not an Instant Pot, it does do the same job as an Instant Pot, and my foods turn out as good as they did in an Instant Pot. 2) I do like the yoghurt feature and enjoy making my own yoghurt 3) While the Instant Pot had settings for porridge, grains and brown rice and this pot does not, I am still able to make all of those foods using the manual button and figuring out the time on my own. 4) It apparently has a "baking" feature, which I have only ever used once, which is a feature the Instant Pot did not have. The cake I made turned out "okay"...I might like using that feature more during summer months when I don't want to turn on my oven and 5) I like the size a lot -- grateful it is as large as it is. A lot of the other pressure cooker brands in NZ have smaller pots, and I like to make enough for leftovers. If you are looking for a pressure cooker that does a good job cooking your foods, this one is a good choice. But, if you have previously owned an Instant Pot, you will miss some of the IP features. If you have never owned an Instant Pot, you will love this Cooker.

Great product, pity about the instructions

4 out of 5, reviewed on Jul 05, 2018

A great product that does pressure cooking and slow cooking, and is easy to clean. Not sure about the yoghurt function, the sales assistant told me it was added due to customer requests. Only thing Is that the instructions aren't the easiest to follow, particularly if you've not used this type of cooker before.

All in one- I want 3!

5 out of 5, reviewed on Jun 13, 2018

I wish i hadnt been so stubborn and let my husband buy one of these years ago.
I figured a slow cooker and a bunch of other rarely used appliances was enough to clutter my cupboards. Very easy to use. The preprogrammed settings make life easy. Fiancially, I save at least $200 per year making my own vanilla bean soy yoghurt and reduce takeaway costs by pressure cooking meals/ meats and meals so quickly.
The sear function is great allowing you to eliminate a frying pan. I make loads of soups porridge roasts curries yoghurt cakes risotto and slow cooks in this brilliant machine.
Its a breeze to clean with a quick rinse under the tap .
I have dismantled the pressure sealer to wash and that's easy too. The cons are the venting... its wet and hot and goes everywhere. Keep a tea towel at hand.
Also my husband bamixed soup in the pot and severely damaged the non stick coating on the base..... but luckily is still working well and not burning areas.
I have tried and tried and not yet mastered popcorn. Grrrrr there are loads of Youtube demos ave recipes on Pressure cookers worth watching.
This appliance lives on my bench and is used every day! I often wish i had 2 or 3 - as this fuss free quick ass dependable cooking is how i roll these days!

I love this thing. The slow cooking function is great, and the pressure cooker function is great also. No issues with it so far.
My only gripe with this machine is the short ‘keep warm’ time. It would be great to start before work and come home to a cooked meal, but due to the short keep warm time, I’m a bit wary the temperature dropping and breeding bacteria.

Instructions manual AND recipe guides are TERRIBLE!

3 out of 5, reviewed on May 20, 2018

On the pressure cook cycle and bake cycle there are no instructions to explain why the timer time is INCREASINGLY not decreasing with time. 3 lights including the pressure and timer on and kept increasingly! Your cake cooked it's recipe time of 45 mins then pressure light remained on and timer still increasing past 6 mins. So l opened lid, cake still liquid in centre, so l reset to bake a new 8 minutes. Cake came out well. I read the cookbook and instruction book, but none explained why it is counting up. I checked the pressure cook recipes and none mention a counting up. I've used the pressure cook before and just checked one hour after end time, to find it on the "warm", as expected, and other light off.
Also, why are the instruction book and cook book so limited in the basic how to instructions. also the range of recipes is so limited, there is no corned beef recipe, and when l rang Phillips for help they told me to FRY the corned beef...YOU DON'T EVER EVER FRY CORNED MEAT! Corned beef is a very popular Irish, English and Australian casserole meal, why isn't it in the Phillips recipe book for pressure cooking. It's tricky to get it right, so far l've tried two variations, both the meat is falling apart but it's tough. I tried your yoghurt recipe for dairy free yogurt but got very runny liquid, gave me diarrhoea.
I believe it's a good product but it is useless without clear instructions. Oh and not everyone likes curries or spicy food, so how about a decent book. Your u-tube cook for Phillips all-in-one cooker gives poor, incomplete instructions. ie She has the apple cake already mixed, we don't see her weigh the ingredients, l wan't to see this because l was worried that there was no fluid in the recipe, l thought it had been missed, so l hoped to watch her make the recipe so l could check the ingredients, l also hoped to hear her explain what we should see on the cooker at the end of the 45 minutes, which lights would be lit, would it count down., or if up (as mine does) why?, but none of this was show on the utube, just a finished cake. Poor guide, poor instructions.Such poor instructions.Useless instructions render the machine useless. I told Phillips this about 4 years ago, by chat forum, phone help and to head office. I was told they were aware of the problem and would be releasing a new set of instructions and cookbook with more recipes and correct the translation errors and omissions. However this hasn't happened.
How about a new book, free to all that can prove they already own the cooker, with gluten free dairy free casseroles of non dairy, creamy base, some of tomato base, some sweet and sour, and casseroles with dumplings (gluten free and some with gluten), and dual recipes where the main meal and a dessert or cake can be cooked at same time in the pot. No chilli, no curry, no offal, no rabbit. No one, including me, can afford to waste food on bad recipes, but if you paid me, l would test cook the variations to give you a terrific cookbook for beef, lamb, chicken, pork,vegetarian, gluten free, dairy free options (that work), cakes (gluten and dairy free options), desserts, and multi cooking, with excellent, clear instructions.
I could do the same for your pasta and cookie maker too. It's been about 4 years and you haven't fixed the problem yourselves. Pay me and l will.

This product is truly awful. With poor instructions and a useless cookbook. After three hours of playing around with this I ended up throwing away the food and taking the cooker back to the shop.

Questions & Answers

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I use the warm function on my Philips All-In-One Cooker?

The Philips All-In-One Cooker will automatically go into a warming function for up to 12 hours after the cooking timer has gone off, regardless if the cooker was in Pressure Mode or Normal Mode. You do not need to enable this mode.

What does an E3 error mean on my Philips All-In-One Cooker?

When an E3 error appears, it means the temperature of the inner pot of the cooker is too high. You will need to wait until the inner pot falls to room temperature before you can use or program the unit again.

Latest Consumer Questions

Could you advice, what is the temperature in the pressure cooker when using on pressure cooking? I have a recipe and cooking time depend on the temperature so I need to know that to adjust my cooking time. Thanks.

Michael asked on Sep 15, 2018

Answer this

Hi there. Thank you for your question. Depending on the kind of food you're cooking you can pick the right setting. If the temperature is important, we would recommend non-pressurized cooking, as you'll then be able to follow this temperature chart: https://philips.to/2xuOeEz. Kind regards, The Philips Australia Team.

I recently purchased the new Philips Multicooker - I decided to make a beef curry, after sautéing the onion & beef & adding veggies etc I used the default setting to pressure cook (beef/lamb) setting - once it was complete I wasn’t able to open the lid? The lid unlocked but I was unable to open it even though all the pressure had been released? Has anyone else had problems with the new model - the instruction manual was no help at all.

Parker asked on Sep 12, 2018

Answer this

Hi there,

Thanks for reaching out here. :) It might be the case that the floater in the vent is stuck in the up position. In that case, you could turn the dial to 'vent' for the pressure to release. If this doesn't help, we recommend contacting our consumer care colleagues on 1300 363 391 (AU) or 0800 658 224 (NZ), to see how we could help otherwise. They're always happy to assist!

Hi Can u plz tell me that this all in one multi cooker shuts down by its self after the selected time of cooking is finished?

Sam asked on Sep 10, 2018

Answer this

In most programmes the cooker keeps the food warm for one hour after cooking ceases. This is in the instruction manual, which apparently only I have read.

Hi Sam. Thanks for your question. It looks like your question has already been answered, but it does indeed automatically go on the 'Keep warm' function after the cooking time has elapsed.
