If time is of the essence, a multi-function cooker that can both slow cook and pressure cook may be a versatile and time-saving appliance. We lab test and review the latest models to help you find the best multi-cooker for you.

Our expert testers give every multi-cooker a thorough workout to help find the models that:

  • perform well on slow cooking settings without drying out your dinner
  • perform well for pressure cooking without turning your food into mush or undercooking it
  • cook rice without sticking
  • are easiest to use and clean.

We also give you good and bad points for each product as well as their running costs on both pressure and slow cooking settings. And our Recommended list will help you quickly see which models come out on top.

CHOICE is an independent, non-profit organisation dedicated to helping consumers. Clicking a link will take you to a retailer's website to shop. While we make money if you buy through some retailer links, this doesn't influence any of our rankings. 100% of the money we make goes straight back into our non profit mission. We're currently testing this service and will consider providing more shopping links in the future. Tell us what you think.
