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 4.4 out of 5 by 23 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful acquisition My first ever attempt at a Risotto and perfect success. The saute was brilliant for frying ingredients, then the risotto setting cooked the rice to perfection. The appliance made a successful chef out of an OK cook. the Multi Cooker is a simple and very effective tool. It replaces my rice cooker. steamer and slow cooker. Meaning my self has one device lakes up the shelf space of well made and fantastic value for money! 06 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Happy to recommend I am overly delighted with my Risotto Plus. So pleased my friend recommended it to me. It is my little kitchen helper, easy to use and versatile. I would not be without it. A quick preparation of ingredients placed in the special pot in the morning and I come home to a wonderful aroma and a delicious meal ready to serve and enjoy. 16 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent purchase and worth the money We really love this machine. Our first attempt at making risotto with it was an absolute dream. Casseroles and curries are also now a favourite to make. Definitely an asset to the kitchen! 08 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by The Best Slow Cooker Ever As a lover of risotto, but disliking the constant stirring while awaiting for the rice to absorb the sauce. This product really does what it says and produces a thick, creamier result and is a shear joy to use. The slow cook process of the item does tenderises the meat as it cooks on the slow low button and gives the dish a fuller flavour. As yet I have not used the vegetable steaming tray, but if its as good as the other two parts I have tested then it must be a wow. A first class product and very, very well manufactured. 09 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Really good product This is a really good product, that does exactly what it advertised to do. I have used it a number of times already and I have been really pleased with the results. Making a risotto has just got a whole lot easier. 26 January 2016
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
