I like to serve hot and delicious food on the table, but sometimes I don’t have the time to do it (because of work commitments or other priority stuff needs to be done, etc).
Recently, I discovered one product that made my life really easy – the multi cooker.
A multi cooker (source:wikipedia) can be defined as an electric kitchen appliance for automated cooking using a timer.
The device is operated by placing ingredients inside, selecting the corresponding program, and leaving the multi cooker to cook according to the program, typically without any need for further user intervention. Some multi cookers have an adjustable thermostat.
Multi cookers allow us to cook healthily as they need no or very little oil and, also, they maintain all the important elements in the food we prepare.

SAVES TIME AND SPACE
The multi cooker is a great kitchen appliance – it saves me a lot of time as you don’t need to fuss around the meal- just put the ingredients and adjust timer and time and you could have delicious, hot, home-cooked meal on time.
I love that I don’t need to slave around the cooker so that to know that my kids would eat something yummy and healthy. The time this machine frees for me, I spend with my children. My little one just started getting very active and he is very interested in puzzles, so I just put the things in the multi cooker and play with my children. I love that time.
And one day, when I am brave enough to get rid off all of the other cooking appliances, it would make my kitchen look bigger as it is not a big appliance and I won’t need anything else. For the moment, that is not the case, but I am thinking about it.
YOU CAN USE IT TO PREPARE EVERY MEAL DURING THE DAY OR FOR SPECIAL OCCASIONS, IT’S FOR EVERYTHING
I’ve used the multi cooker to prepare every meal during the day – breakfasts, main meals – boiled, baked or stewed, soups, but I love the rice prepared in the multi cooker.
I must admit that I don’t like rice and would not normally choose it as a main meal, but my kids just adore rice with anything – meat or vegetables.
When we bought the multi cooker one of the first things I prepared was steamed rice with spinach. It was amazingly delicious and that day we had a lot of things to do and yet, when we got home, the warm meal was waiting for us (just follow the appliance’s book with recipes).
Chicken wings in 5 easy steps
Marinate the chicken wings in lemon juice, honey, soy sauce, salt, pepper, olive oil. Leave in the fridge for 15-30 minutes to absorb the aromas
Put them in the multi cooker, choose the cooking program – BAKE, adjust the cooking time (around 45 minutes). Press START.
After 15-20 minutes, you can add the marinate to the pot or some soy sauce (optional).
When the cooking has completed, the multi cooker would keep the meal warm using the KEEP WARM program.
Turn off the multi cooker
YOU WON’T WASTE ANY TIME CLEANING IT UP
Cleaning the Tefal MultiCook Advanced 45-in-1 RK812142 multi cooker can not be made easier. I just wipe the bottom of the pot with a tissue and then rinse under running water. There is never burned food to scrape and it dries very quickly, or just finish it with a cloth/towel.
I LOVE MY MULTI COOKER
I first started using the multi cooker, because I needed help with cooking when I go home (another country) to an empty house with little kids. And I quickly noticed how easy and convenient it is to have this appliance at home – I prepare family meals, I invite people for special occasions, make desserts and bake cakes, I prepare breakfasts, just name it.
I believe in this product and, if you like me, prefer to spend your time with the people you love, I recommend the Tefal MultiCook Advanced 45-in-1 RK812142 multi cooker – it would help you prepare delicious meals without you needing to be even there.
I know that Argos runs offers on multi cookers or just check the other big appliances’ stores, but if you prefer to shop online like myself, Amazon usually has the best deals. You can find it worldwide and it would be delivered to your home.
