Technology has improved so many areas of modern life, and cooking is no exception. Now there are many versatile cooking gadgets are available that make the life easy. Such one is multi cooker.
What is a Multi Cooker?
A multi cooker is exactly how it sounds. It is an electronic cooking appliance that is designed to cater to a range of functions all on its own. This something as simple as a kettle or toaster, but a multi cooker has the capacity to cook and prepare food in a huge variety of styles.
It is a wonderful option for those who do not have a lot of time to spare in their day. Instead of standing by supervising a dish, one has the option of simply piling in the ingredients and selecting the most appropriate program among a list of others to get the job done.
Multi cookers can help with a whole range of culinary tasks, from simple vegetable steaming and supposedly simple rice cooking (it’s a difficult one to get right!) to anything from frying, slow cooking and even smoking.
Due to the fact that multi cookers are an electronic product, they can be totally programmable too. If you know you are arriving home from work at a certain time, you can set your food to heat up and be ready when you are walking in the door.

What Else Can You Do with Your Multi-Cooker?
Making a crock pot recipe? Use the slow cook setting on your multi-cooker to get it done instead.
Using the sauté setting turns your multi-cooker into a stand-in for an electric stovetop. Use this setting to get the perfect sear on your meats to lock in moisture, or to brown your onions for extra flavor
Keep Food Warm
Need a food warmer? Use the multi-cooker. The “keep warm” setting can come in handy for entertaining with dishes like Swedish meatballs that need to be served warm to taste their best.
Specialized Cooking Modes
Your multi-cooker can double as a rice cooker, and it comes with preset options for (white) rice and multigrain cooking. You can also cook soup, stews, poultry, beans and chili on its other preset modes.
What to Cook in Multi Cooker?
Multi cooker is electric, it can be programmed to cook a multitude of foods and turn them out perfectly. Pressure, temperature and time can either be automatically set depending on a preset that you select, or they can be manually controlled if you prefer. The former can drastically reduce the time and effort you have to put in beyond the initial steps where you add ingredients and optionally stir them before closing the cooker. Some types of cookers may come with an automatic stirrer, especially if air frying is an important function.
