Home Cooking Precision

H Surprise 7/15/2019

Eleven cook modes with selectable cooking ranges scored over the use of my stovetop which require attending several thermometers, two burners, and a timer to achieve similar precision that the one display provided on the KitchenAid Multi-Cooker with Stir Tower accessory–which scored an assist for hands free convenience. Being new to using a multi-cooker I was amazed how simple it was to sauté, stir, sear, sauté and stir again, then cover and slow-cook a recipe from the KitchenAid Multi-Cooker Cookbook. And served on my first attempt a delicious meal of Chicken Cassoulet that surpassed juggling stovetop skills I am more familiar with. Needless to say my wife loves it as well and thanked me for adding it to the kitchen. I love all KitchenAid finishes. They cleanup so easy.

Good, not great

katj 9/21/2018

Wanted to wait until I used this cooker for a while before posting a review. I love some of the features on this cooker, I just baked a cake of all things, and I also find it really beautiful on my counter-top. Make sure to measure for your own counter space, it is quite large with the stir tower. The stir tower works great for some things such as sticky rice. steamed veggies and risotto, but you still need to move the food contents manually a great deal of the time. I usually use the manual function because the presets don't seem to work as well for me. The function modes are too cumbersome and require you to keep pushing start button. I am disappointed there is no cookbook!! You used to be able to download one, now that is gone too. Also, my emails to KitchenAid won't go through, keeps bouncing back "undelivered". I am questioning this company!!

No Instruction booklet!!!

Sharpie 4/26/2018

Very Disappointing that there was no instruction booklet included for a complex cooker; I have phoned Kitchen Aid three times, once each in NZ and Australia and the USA, all saying that they cannot post me an instruction booklet so that we can start using the cooker we purchased. This seams unbelievable as it is just a booklet and wouldn't cost much to post. David Sharp New Zealand

I love my multi-cooker, but . . . . .

Mrs. DABK 2/18/2018

I absolutely love my KitchenAid Multi-Cooker, but I am concerned about the peeling of the black layer on the insert pot liner. My unit is peeling underneath the insert pot liner and also on the inside of the insert pot liner where the stir tower attaches. I have only used the unit a hand full of times and I am very careful when using and cleaning the insert pot liner. Would be considered defective?

It does it all...

1/14/2017

This is a far cry from a regular crock pot. You can pre-cook your meat or saute your onions & bell pepper for your recipe in the same cooker. In the past I would dirty a pan pre-cooking the items for my crock pot meals, but no more. With the various cooking selections you can sear, saute, boil/steam, simmer, Slow Cooker High, Slow Cooker Low, Keep Warm and Manual. It also has cooking modes that cook rice, soups, risotto and yogurt. I purchased the additional stirring arm, and now it's hands free. We are downsizing into a RV bus and with this multi-cooker I can create my recipes with out all my various appliances.

really wanted to be impressed, but i'm not.

1/7/2017

Tried to use it for the first time today. Following the quick start instructions or poring over the manual fails to produce the simple information of what the status lights mean. They flash or they stay on, they go off... they alternate with the one on the stirring tower. But there's nothing to tell you that its not working until you check it an hour later and find the contents are still cold. The thin stainless steel rim on the lid has already drawn blood.

This is now my "Go To" appliance!

8/29/2016

I purchased the Multi-Cooker and Stir Tower a year ago to replace my "Risotto Plus" machine that scorched every pot of rice or risotto I ever made. I donated it to charity and hope that whomever got it likes scorched rice. And I am SOOOO VERY HAPPY with my Multi-Cooker! I use it all the time for just about everything! I have even started using it for things that would be just as easily done on the stove top, the reason being because I live in Southern California and it's hot during the summer. If I use the Multi-Cooker, it doesn't heat up my kitchen.

Great way to eat more vegetables

7/31/2016

We've bought this combo because I've accumulated a number of vegetable recipes that basically went along the line "Sautee for X minutes stirring frequently", so I decided to automate the process. While this device has a number of hiccups, it does the job, which can't be said about any other device on the market. I already have a KitchenAid dicing food processor, so in most cases the whole preparation looks like "dice vegetables in a food processor and put them in a correct order into a multicooker". The process is intuitive, with two caveats. Firstly, you need to baby-sit the multicooker until it reaches the desired temperature, and only then you can set the timer. Secondly, the stir tower's low stir setting rotates the entire batch of vegetables in a multicooker as one piece, so you need to set the stir tower to 2 or 3 to actually get any stirring. But, well, I can live with this. The multicooker is actually easy to clean, with one exception: the pot, the lid and stir paddles easily go into dishwasher, but the top of the stir tower is the food magnet and needs to be cleaned separately. But, well, that's something I can live with. Also, make sure you remove the stir paddles first, as the grease from them drips onto the heating element if you remove the pot before you remove the paddles. I've also cooked risottos in this machine, and they work out really well, even though I don't follow the risotto program, as I have my recipes. In general, adapting recipes for this machine is easy, as the cooking modes follow closely my electric stove. I did make octopus and calamari in this machine, but I'm a bit reluctant to use it to brown meat, as I feel it may be underpowered - maybe I'm wrong, because since it stirs everything with the lid covered it actually performs really well. I see myself using this thing for more than just vegetables, but I haven't had an opportunity to try it yet. I strongly recommend getting the stir tower, as it makes the device very useful.

My new sous chef ! But......

7/8/2016

I really love this multi cooker but the stir tower is the best part !!! I did not give this 5 stars because 1) cooking rice using the stir tower accumulates next to the blades even when using the recommended amounts. 2) the preset setting for rice burns the onions during step 1 It is way too hot 3) the handle of the cover gets so hot even when on simmer that you have to use a pot holder 4) the stir tower is very noisy

Throw away your stove

6/20/2016

Love this machine. I've been using it for a few weeks now and have made several meals. You could almost eliminate the stove cooking with this. Very intuitive and easy to operate. The stir tower is a really nice feature, gives you an extra hand in the kitchen. I've been wanting to try my hand at making yogurt but have been too intimidated. This machine makes it super easy. I am giving only four stars because the simmer function doesn't work well for me. I have had to use the manual function at a higher temperature to keep things simmering. Sometimes it takes a little time to get it dialed just right so I can feel comfortable walking away to let it do it's thing.

Multi-Cooker with Stir Tower Accessory

5/19/2016

So far, I've only used the slow cooker function, but it worked quite well. Now that I have received recipes and how-tos for the other modes, I'm sure that I will be trying more things. Overall, it is a nice item. I will be handling the ceramic insert very gently so that it does not scratch.

QUALITY I EXPECT FROM KITCHENAID

11/30/2015

I have had the multi-cooker for several weeks now and have used it daily. It greatly simplifies stir-fried cooking and I particularly like it for caramelizing onions. Temperature control is near perfect. I even made a meat loaf in it. I consider it to be an excellent product and I highly recommend it.

Another Great Kitchen Aid Tool!

9/17/2015

The KitchenAid Multi-Cooker is exactly what I was waiting for! While I wish it were a little bigger, the main goal of cooking more foods that require constant stirring is met. I love the simplistic functionality of the computer based operating system and the ease of using the paddles. Overall, I am a very happy KitchenAid consumer.

This is easy to use but the directions are really clear. First r example on the risotto setting the temp has to be at a particular level to let you go from sauté to simmer. Just an adjustment in instructions would be helpful.
