Excellent!

5 out of 5, reviewed on Dec 17, 2018

I bought this yesterday after having it on my wish list for many months. I used it last night to make pea and ham soup. It was super quick, easy to use and cooked to perfection. (nothing worse than a chewy split pea!) The family insist it was the best ever, and since I used the same old recipe I can only assume the new cooker made all the difference.
Very happy, highly recommended!

Not quite good enough...

2 out of 5, reviewed on Dec 13, 2018

The unit itself is passable, although the pre-programmed setting are next to useless, even for the recipes in the supplied book. Rice and Risotto are both 14min on the pressure cooker menu - why waste a program when there are only 5 to choose from in the first place? Can only handle small batches of meat, but burns small batches of rice. Pot scratches easily, despite only using wooden or plastic utensils. The 'cookbook' included is riddled with errors, incomplete instructions, missing ingredients and generally looks like it was a draft rushed to printing without proofreading. Basic usage instructions were also subpar with even basic instructions incorrect.

Generally an extremely disappointing unit - I would have expected far, far better quality and design.

Great cooker

5 out of 5, reviewed on Dec 11, 2018

Got this to replace a tefal cook4me and this leaves the tefal behind. I use the manual controls and appreciate the different sear temps and intuitive controls, however it does take a little longer to come up to pressure than the tefal did. It’s very easy to clean and maintain, but not dishwasher compatible . Haven’t tried the slow cook function yet, but will update this review when I do.

Not reliable - burns food

2 out of 5, reviewed on Nov 13, 2018

I have used the recipe book - some were okay but most burned. I can't understand the timer or the timing as it takes quite some time to build up pressure. I have contacted Philips via emails and they replied by email and organised a time to ring in the morning (I waited in all day!) but still 2 weeks later have not had anyone ring me to answer my questions. Extremely disappointing no Customer Care! Then when you ring they still don't get back to you. The cooker is easy to clean and looks good but I can't afford to burn food (especially when you are relying on it for a meal for the family). What was supposed to help reduce stress has caused further stress - by burning food and not getting replies from maker. Think I will go for a refund for an unreliable product.

November 22nd 2018 Update: Still no success with customer care - nearly 1 month has passed.

Hi after starting an enquiry with this company on 24th October 2018 I am still waiting to speak with someone. Numerous emails back and forth but no success in setting up a time for them to ring. Can't believe how many emails you can receive when a simple phone call would have had this answered. Time wasting to the max.

Amazing product

5 out of 5, reviewed on Sep 25, 2018

I’ve used my multi cooker nearly every day since I bought it a month ago.
It cooks extremely well. UsIng the cook book provided is a great way to start. Within a few recipes you can understand how to convert traditional slow-cooker recipes to the multi cooker. I have even made jam, and the taste was remarkable.
It’s easy to use, the regulator and floating valve are easy to clean. Looking at some other machines, they are overly complicated, with more parts to clean.
The silicon seal requires thorough washing, and it will occasionally hold an odor, but this doesn’t affect the overall taste of the next batch of food you may cook. My jam didn’t taste of curry!
One tip that maybe useful is to check the pressure control valve each time you cook with it. Make sure the black ring which holds the vent is finger tightened, so you don’t waste time bringing your food to pressure. This is a game changer, and makes cooking enjoyable. My family are really enjoying all the food cooked in the cooker.

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.

- 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.

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

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.

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.

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

Hello, could anyone please tell me if it's possible to increase the cooking time while in pressurised cooking mode? I've just moved and can't find my manual...

Hannah11773 asked on Dec 15, 2018

Am I able to stop the cooking process before the finishing time?

Bev asked on Dec 10, 2018

Answer this

Thanks for your question, Bev. The possibility of regulating the cooking time, depends on the cooking function that you are using. The pressure cooker will always have to depressurize before you're able to open it. We hope this answers your question. If it doesn't, feel free to get back in touch with us through one of our social media channels (available 24/7), or get in touch with our colleagues through one of the following numbers:

How do I, can I pressure cook for longer than 59 minutes?

Mark Pickford asked on Dec 07, 2018

Answer this

You can't. After 59min is up, you basically have to start the cycle again.

I’ve never had the need to do so, but would be interested to hear what you’d use long times for.

Hi Mark, that's a nice question. The pressure cookers is indeed not able to cook for longer than 59 minutes. Depending on the ingredients and what you wish to cook, you could set the timer again for a longer cooking time. However, we do recommend contacting our team on the phone just to make sure what the limitation of this is. Our product specialists will be able to tell you more about it. You can reach out to our colleagues on the following number: 1300 363 391 (AU - Mondays to Saturdays: 7:00 am - 7:00 pm EST) or on 0800 658 224 (NZ- Mondays to Saturdays: 9:00 am - 9:00 pm).
