Does anyone have a multi cooker?

Wed May 28, 2014 5:04 pm

They have them for sale at Aldi this week. They seem to be a pressure cooker that also can function as a rice cooker and slow cooker. Wondering if they are any good or I should just get a stand alone pressure cooker?

I don't - didn't even know you could get a combo like that. I have separate pressure cooker, rice cooker and slow cooker!

But I can definitely say I loooooove having a pressure cooker - not sure of your circumstances but I have a 2yo and work 4 days a week, and the pressure cooker is an absolute lifesaver in our home. Not sure if that is a helpful response or not really, but just felt like sharing! :lol:

What's the price for the multi cooker? Is it comparable to a pressure cooker cost?

It's very helpful thanks! With 2 kids and working a few days it sounds like a great help. The multi cooker is $60 at Aldi and a non-electric pressure cooker is $50.

At that price, and assuming you'd use all the functions, I'd give it a crack. It's not a ridiculously massive expense if it's not great or doesn't get used.

I got one! Using up my old veggies and trying it out with a vegetable soup.

It was good! A bit nerve racking using the pressure cooker for the first time, but feeling more confident now.

Yay! I was nervous about the pressure cooker at first too - I didn't know how to use it, and was slightly nervous it was going to explode! But now I loooooooove it!

Have you used the other functions at all yet?

I used it as a rice cooker- usually we microwave cook rice. It cooked it really well but not any quicker than the microwave. I slow cooked in it yesterday- did a great job and I loved the delay start and keep warm feature.
