Sage by Heston Blumenthal the Risotto Plus™, Silver

Product information

Formerly know 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 13 reviewers.
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
Rated 4 out of 5 by nice design, very useful I bought it a month ago and I am using it every week. Made the risotto, so easy and so good. Byriani was amazing. Tried the two slow cook options, no problem at all. So easy to use, to clean, and quite a big capacity (6 chicken drumsticks) for its size. Really happy. 11 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it! I've only had the Multi Cooker about 4 weeks but I've been very impressed with it in that time. I've mainly used it for slow cooking and steaming vegetables, oh and I have used the risotto function. All works very well. The instruction book is a bit basic though but manageable. 05 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by one pot does it all !! I bought this because I needed a slow cooker with a stay warm function as I am out of the house for 11hours a day. I can safely say that even though it does not have a timer it cooks food beautifully and keeps warm until I come home. If something needs thickening, I add a bit of cornflour then turn it onto the rice setting and it heats it up to 'really hot' in no time. I use this to steam, I cook risotto to perfection, it sears food before I slow cook, I cook plain rice and I have even cooked quiches in it (its very non-stick) with both bought pastry and homemade pastry and rice pudding cooked in this is to die for. I would recommend this product. 29 July 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by A great multi tasker Have cooked risotto to perfection, made curries which need long slow cooking - and tomato based pasta sauces. All have turned out really well also it great to sear food in the pan, no mess on the cooker. brilliant 04 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sage by Heston Blumenthal Multi Cooker Have been impressed with the versatility of this cooker. I like not having to use separate pans to sauté/sear food as this cooker has this setting, as well as 4 other different cooking settings. I have found it easy to use, but would have liked more recipes included, particularly as this is a product by a well know chef 26 May 2014
