SLOW COOKERVS PRESSURE COOKER VS MULTI-COOKER:
WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES?

Are you in charge of cooking for the whole family? A cooking enthusiast who simply loves cooking? Or just a casual cook thinking of cooking more at home, for health and cost-saving reasons?

Whichever spectrum you fall under, there are many cooker options available in the market to make your life easier and your cooking experience more enjoyable. You may wonder: what are the differences between slow cooker, pressure cooker and multi-cooker, and more importantly, which is the right one for you?

Most modern cookers now come with fully automated functions and with a slow cooker, you can just turn it on with the correct setting and leave the ingredients to cook unsupervised — no more checking on your stew every few minutes, no more boiling over, and no more overcooking!

Slow cookers are perfect for food that is best cooked at a low and steady temperature over time. The extended cooking time with slow cooking teases out rich and deep flavours, ensuring a delicious meal always.

Slow cookers are usually more budget-friendly than other options. The downside is that slow cookers take longer to cook, so you need to plan your food preparation ahead of time!

Pressure cooker is another popular option available. The key difference between slow cooker vs pressure cooker is the time needed and the cooking method used.

When you’re slow cooking, you can open the lid as you cook to check on the cooking progress — to stir or to add more ingredients as needed. With pressure cookers, pressure cooking requires the lid to be tightly sealed, so that pressure can be built up and for cooking to happen quicker. Typically, cooking via pressure cookers takes a shorter time than slow cookers.

Pressure cookers are usually more expensive than slow cookers. Because you can’t open the lid and check on the cooking progress, overcooking may be an issue and you can’t make adjustments halfway through — you need to be sure you got the ingredients and settings right before starting the cooking process.
