Tefal RK302E15 8-in-1 Multi-Cooker
Responsible for making me make "proper porridge"
Love it. When my old rice cooker died I needed to buy another. Did lots of research before settling for this one. A bit dubious at first on spending a lot of money on what I essentially wanted "just to make rice", but after the other good reviews on all the other stuff this one can do decided to splash out. Definitely worth it - not only does it make all my rice dishes perfectly, but I also regularly make our weekend porridge in it. Takes 20 minutes but so much better than the instant porridge in the little bags, and it's nice to just put it on then relax and do other things safe in the knowledge breakfast is being prepared . . .

SO MUCH MORE THAN JUST FOR RICE
Purchased this Tefal 8-in-1 over a month ago but did not want to leave feedback until I had a chance to give it a good try. I almost did not purchase this on reading feedback others had left, and wanted to be as helpful as a i could to other purchasers.
I was after a replacement for my well used slow cooker. The main thing I was looking for was a good slow cooker with a timer, this would cover both and much more.
My first job for my new Tefal was Rice, well it had had to be done. It cooked the rice just perfect. Then I tried the rice pudding in the recipe booklet, which I have cooked twice and found that not stirring the rice was best and it came out much nicer and as we liked it. Of course with all things you have to adjust to taste, and not give up if the first result is not right for you, the recipe is only a standard guide.
Then Something I have never done, I baked the chocolate cake to the recipe and I was amazed it was perfect and enjoyed by my husband. I will be repeating cakes, as it was so easy with great results.
Onward to what I wanted most, slow cooking. I used my own recipe and made a Spanish Chicken casserole, it came out perfect. You may need to adjust timing if you like your vegetables softer.
One person left feedback that said that slow cooking left a smell on the seal. This is so but it does not contaminate say a rice pudding. So don't be to worried about this. I can not say I am bothered about this.
I have started doing porridge on timer so we wake up to a nice breakfast. It did stick a bit on the first go but I have got this covered by not letting the timer run to the end.
Over all I am very pleased with this item and I am looking forward to trying more casseroles and puds.
Take your time and adjust timings to your taste and you will enjoy everything this Tefal has to offer.

Great. Brilliant rice...
I have used this machine for slow cooking and rice, and it did a very good job of both. I've tried a couple of beef stews, a green Thai curry, and pork in apple and cider. Although not as good as cooking in the oven they were ready on arrival from work and tasty. The rice cooker is brilliant. Perfect rice.

worth every penny
I bought this slow cooker a couple of months ago and wanted to try it out first before posting a review.
It has surpassed all my expectations and I use it several times a week for various meals. I have made lots of different dishes and it cooks rice to perfection. The steam function is brilliant too, saves having to have a separate appliance. I have recently perfected the rice pudding recipe that comes with the cooker....
Overall, it's very straight forward to use, easy to clean and unlike another poster, i have not had any issues with the appliance retaining a food smell - you just need to wipe the plastic parts clean and leave the lid open after cooking strong smelling food.

I bought this on a whim with the money I had received over Christmas and I definitely don't regret it!!
Used it for the first time today to make a beef stew for steak pie filling and its worked wonders. I set it on Slow Cooker mode for 5hrs, it still has an hour to go and the meat is already so tender it just melts in your mouth and with still an hour to go it's just going to get better. Have yet to use it for rice or baking etc but so far so good!!
