The 10 best multi cookers

Do away with multiple pans and invest in a clever multi cooker. It’ll free up cupboard space and cut down on the washing up

Our kitchen cupboards are full of pans of all shapes and sizes. But do we really need eight different frying pans, casserole dishes and roasting tins when one bit of kit could do? There are a range of clever kitchen aids in the shops which claim to do the lot; from steaming, frying and grilling to searing and slow cooking. We tried and tested the gadgets out there to see if they are worth the investment, from Breville’s multifunctioning slow- cooker to Lakeland’s forward-thinking sous-vide multi cooker, we judged them on range of functions and consistency of results.


Salter's 8-in-1 cooker is great value for money if you're looking for a budget option. The top of the range Lakeland Multichef impressed us with its range of programmes and uses. For consistently good results and a cooker that won't break the bank, the Morphy Richards Intellichef is a good bet.
