Product information

Formerly known as The Multi Cooker™, the Risotto Plus™ from Sage by Heston Blumenthal is the ideal kitchen companion. With its advanced features and functions, this multi cooker makes tender slow cooked meals, stir-free risotto and fluffy rice all in the same bowl.

Risotto usually requires precise temperature, controlled liquid absorption, and lots of stirring. The pre-programmed Risotto function controls temperature to absorb flavour, lightly agitates while simmering, and turns itself off once ready. Delicious results with minimum effort.

A sauté/sear function is also on hand to caramelise all of your fresh ingredients, whether its onion, herbs or meat all will be cooked perfectly at the touch of a button. A handy steam tray is designed to sit under the lid of the rice cooker. Simply add water to steam fish and vegetables for further cooking flexibility.

After using the rice and slow cook settings the Multi Cooker™ will automatically switch to keep warm for up to 5 hours and then switch off. After the risotto setting, it will be up to 30 minutes and then switch off. The lid is made from tempered glass so you are able to view the progress of cooking at all times. A non-stick interior makes cleaning a breeze.

Q & As

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 18 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by A great machine I bought this a month ago and have used all of the functions. It is a fantastic piece of kitchen equipment. The saute function is absolutely brilliant. It saves using separate pans and heats up to the perfect temperature. The risotto need a bit more liquid than the recipe book suggested but this was easily done by adding the extra and pressing the risotto button again. I made a pilaff and it was absolutely perfect. Both the slow cook functions worked very well and the steamer is good too. As well as being a really useful cooker it is also a thing of great beauty with sleek lines and understated buttons. No horrible, clunky, black knobs on this one. Personally, I wouldn't wash the bowl in a dishwasher - I don't think non-stick coatings do well in them but it is a cinch to wash by hand anyway. My favourite kitchen gadget by far :) 28 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to use I brought this product as a replacement for an old rice cooker it appealed to me as it's a multi cooker it cooks rice wonderfully and steams veg and potatoes perfectly it has a large steam basket and looks very stylish on my work top I have not yet used it as a slow cooker but i'm sure it will be great. 25 November 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Useful Need to experiment with rice cooking to get best results. Use more water and switch off completely rather than go to keep warm setting. Successfully used slow cooker. Risotto OK. Much less trouble than adding stock slowly and stirring constantly but the results are perhaps not quite as good. The sear function is helpful. Overall a useful time saver but not essential. 17 November 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by GOOD FOR RISOTTO BUT ... Makes good risotto, but otherwise very disappointing, particularly given the price. Have had this for 6 months, used carefully, and already non-stick coating is wearing at the edge and where lid sits on pan. Too hot for a slow cooker, even on low setting. Tends to spit when cooking, with lid on. When steaming rice it tends to burn at bottom of pan. Will be returning ours to John Lewis. 21 October 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent all round We bought this to replace a faulty slow cooker by a different brand. We have used it to slow cook, cook both rice and risotto, and sear food. It works very well for all these options. The sear function is a bonus as you don't have use any other pans. We have found that it needs more water than recommended when cooking white long grain rice, so use the quantity for brown rice instead, and it turns out perfect! 20 October 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Great for risotto, bad for rice Pros: Quality finish and materials Does risotto brilliantly Cons Poor as rice cooker, if you want sticky or brown rice it overflows even with really well washed rice. 14 May 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by 3 buys and scratches prior to using it It is almost unbelievable but I had bought 3 of these in a week because each time one arrived had a scratch inside of non coating pan. You need to put it in the light to see the scratches properly and considering that scratches on non stick coating are carcinogenic it is worth to check it. What a disappointment with sage which seemed to me to be quality product. Sage staff did not bother about the problem , even so these were 3 buys not one! In the end went to buy tefal 8 in 1 and awaiting its arrival. John Lewis service perfect as usual , no problems with returning it and refund but shame the product is not up to standard in this case not safe to use scratched ones. Still can believe my bad luck that 3 were scratched even did not get chance to cook in them. One has scratches on the bottom and two in uper parts of pan, suggested Sage that it may be due to steam basket but was told the plastic bag protects the inside of pan, doubt it as I can see it does not! Not that Sage was bothered. Avoid. Very disappointed. 10 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by One Pot Wonder I have used a slow cooker for many years but the prospect of not having to stand & stir risotto was very appealling. The results on all functions of this multi cooker are excellent, particularly the rice setting which produced just the right quantity for 2 people following the guide. The capacity is very generous and the pot easy to clean. Super product with usual great service from JL/Waitrose 30 August 2014
