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 multi-cookers buying guide will help you decide which type you need, and how we test multi-cookers explains our testing rigour.

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 see quickly which models come out on top.
