WHAT IS A MULTI-COOKER AND WHAT CAN YOU MAKE WITH IT?

More free space on your kitchen counter, extra fast yet still flavourful meals, a variety of cooking methods and all at the price of just one kitchen appliance – with all these attributes, it truly does seem like the multi-cooker is the miracle-worker of kitchen appliances. Before we delve into the many wondrous ways a multi-cooker can simplify your life, let us first discover what makes a multi-cooker the ultimate kitchen saviour!

WHAT IS MULTI-COOKER?


A multi-cooker is essentially a multipurpose kitchen appliance capable of cooking food automatically in a variety of ways. A multi-cooker has a variety of functions such as boiling, simmering, baking, sautéing, steaming, frying, roasting, stewing and pressure cooking in addition to being able to keep food warm, hence it eliminates the need for many cooking appliances that are taking up precious kitchen counter real estate – a quality which will surely come in handy for smaller households. As a plus, one of the multi-cooker’s many functions happens to be speeding up the food preparation process to almost half the time it takes via conventional cooking methods.

WHAT CAN YOU DO WITH A MULTI-COOKER?


A multi-cooker is the modern and convenient solution for those with a hectic, fast-paced lifestyle or even busy families who treasure the routine of daily home-cooked meals but prefer a no-fuss cooking process. Not only do you get a delicious, warm meal in half the time it takes, you don’t even need to be a master chef to put mouth-watering dishes on the table!

The great thing about a multi-cooker is that you don’t even need to be an expert in the kitchen, it does all the work for you with just the push of a button or two. No constant hovering over the stove, stirring or fretting over the recipe, simply pop your desired ingredients into the multi-cooker, adjust the appropriate settings according to the easy-to-follow instructions and relax as you await your one-pot culinary wonder. It’s easy to create a variety of dishes in no time at all as long as you have a recipe in mind and a trusty multi-cooker. Whether it’s fork-tender meat, juicy roasts or even a moist and fluffy cheesecake, it’s all possible with just one multi-cooker.

These days multi-cookers also come in a variety of sizes to accommodate your needs, but that isn’t the only way they can save you plenty of kitchen space. A multi-cooker’s many functions make it a great all-in-one alternative to many other kitchen appliances – think oven, rice cooker, pressure cooker, steamer, frying pan and stovetop all in one compact package.

The price of a multi-cooker may have you balking at the idea initially. However, you should take into consideration that a multi-cooker’s many functions don’t just allow you to make a wide variety of foods with just one pot, thus lessening the number of kitchen appliances you need to purchase, but it’s also energy-saving and reduces the need to order takeout on days when you’re too tired to handle food prep.
