4.0 out of 5 stars So far I really like it, 1 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Morphy Richards 48615 Intellichef Multicooker 5 Litres 1.5 KW - White (Kitchen & Home)
I have one issue with it however. The indentations in the side of the base where the steamer rack sits causes steam to escape i.e. there are gaps between the lid and the pot. This is a bit of an issue, I've found, when slow cooking. My old slow cooker I could leave and wouldn't really need to top up at all. I have been getting round this issue when slow cooking by using more liquid than I normally would, and also have been cooking on 80 degrees instead. My chicken stew was cooked nicely.

When I brought it I was a little worried it would be too big for just me and my son, but after the first use I was reassured on that front. I managed to make one and a half portions of risotto (in other words a small amount) and it came out lovely. Most of the time I will be using it to cook joints of meat and slow cook in bulk, but it's good to know I can use it to cook smaller meals too.

I've also cooked a joint of pork in it (taking the rind off after a while and putting it on top of the roast spuds in the oven to crisp up and turn into crackling) so it does roast (of sorts), but isn't a halogen oven, so won't make roast spuds or brown your chicken (as per comments on other reviews)

I've made chips in it. Something I haven't perfected yet, but that is because of my cooking rather than the unit, the results were better than normal, so was still happy (I'm getting there!).

I haven't steamed in it yet. I plan to make some of Jamies (Oliver) pulled pork steamed buns. If/when I do I will update to tell you how I got on with the rack/steaming.
