Multifunctional electric cooker - a device that opens up the whole spectacle of cooking possibilities

What is a multicooker?

A multicooker is a versatile kitchen appliance designed to streamline the cooking process by combining the functions of multiple kitchen appliances into a single device. It's essentially an all-in-one cooking solution that can perform various cooking tasks such as pressure cooking, slow cooking, sautéing, steaming, rice cooking, and more. Multicookers are equipped with different cooking modes and pre-set programs to accommodate a wide range of recipes and cooking techniques.

What are the standard features of a multifunction pot cooker?

The key features of a typical multicooker include:

  • Pressure Cooking: Multicookers often have a pressure cooking function that can drastically reduce cooking times for dishes that typically take a long time to prepare, like stews, braised meats, and beans.

  • Slow Cooking: This function allows you to cook dishes at a lower temperature over an extended period, making it perfect for soups, chilis, and tenderizing tough cuts of meat.

  • Sautéing: Most multicookers come with a sauté or sear function, enabling you to brown ingredients directly in the pot before switching to another cooking mode.

  • Steaming: Many models have a steaming tray or rack that lets you steam vegetables, fish, or dumplings.

  • Rice Cooking: Multicookers often have pre-set programs for cooking various types of rice and grains.

  • Yoghurt Making: Some models feature a yoghurt-making function that helps you maintain the right temperature and incubation period for homemade yoghurt.

  • Baking and Roasting: Some advanced models offer baking and roasting functions for making bread, cakes, and roasted meats.

  • Customizable Programs: Many multicookers allow you to create your own custom cooking programs or adjust existing pre-set programs to suit your recipes.

  • Keep Warm: After cooking is complete, the multicooker can automatically switch to a keep-warm mode to maintain the dish's temperature until you're ready to serve.

  • Timer and Delay Start: You can set a timer or delay start to have your meal ready when you want it, even if you're not in the kitchen.

In Kulina you will find multicookers by various brands and in various models, each offering different features and capacities.

However, it's important to read the user manual and experiment with the different functions to get the best results from your multicooker, as the cooking times and techniques might vary from traditional methods.
