Are multi-cookers worth having?
Absolutely yes! Depending on which specific multi-cooker you purchase, its uses may vary but generally, multi-cookers can replace seven or more traditional appliances in your kitchen.
Not only do multi-cookers free up storage space in your kitchen, but they will also save you from spending money on multiple devices.
All in all, multi-cookers are a must-have for your kitchen and will help you make delicious recipes with minimal fuss.
What does a Multicooker do?
As its name suggests, multi-cookers can perform a variety of functions that usually require multiple different appliances.
Whilst each specific multi-cooker does include different functions, generally most multi-cooker appliances will allow you to pressure cook, slow cook, steam, boil, simmer, bake, air fry, grill, stew, and cook rice (to name a few).
Can a Multicooker replace a rice cooker?
Of course they can! Often multi-cookers will come with preset options for both white and multigrain rice, allowing you to cook your rice to perfection, with inbuilt measurements to ensure your ratio of rice to water is correct.
