Lakeland Multi Cooker 5L 5 "Very useful addition to kitchen" 13 February 2018 I've only had the multi cooker for about a month and I'm wondering how I managed without it. I've used it for steaming, made a delicious slow cooked stew, yoghurt, porridge,chicken stock and have fast cooked. I haven't yet tried rice , pasta or deep frying. I have found the preset and keep warm functions very useful. This really is a wonderful machine and I would recommend anyone to invest in one and I am sure they won't be disappointed. I do agree with someone else that the steamer basket is a bit awkward to remove from the cooker, but that's the only minor complaint that I have.
