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.

Our expert testers lab test and review the latest multi-cookers 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've also partnered with Shop Ethical on this update to show the ratings the Ethical Consumer Group gives to each company.

Our comprehensive test results also give you good and bad points for each product, as well as their running costs for both pressure cooking and slow cooking settings. And our Recommended list will show you at a glance which models come out on top.

Shopping links on the CHOICE website

CHOICE is an independent, nonprofit 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 nonprofit mission. We're currently testing this service and will consider providing more shopping links in the future. Tell us what you think.
