As you know, I cook. I cook everyday for my family (well sometimes not on Sundays) and sometimes I like to cook something for my family that takes very little effort, but still tastes delicious. The guys and gals at Morphy Richards thought I'd like to try their new Intellichef Multicooker, as with it's multiple uses it's a great space saving kitchen gadget and as you can do everything in one pot, it saves on the dishes too. So, I read through the booklet that comes with the Multicooker and discovered a few recipes that were nice sounding but really I used it as a starting point for coming up with my own ideas of what to cook in the Multicooker.
I made a Paella Risotto to start with, and as I was able to fry the items in the Multicooker before turning it into a slowcooker, I was rather pleased with less dishes to do! The meal was really nice, it was the sort of meal that I could have happily served to friends coming round for dinner or to my family.
I decided to try Rice Pudding next. It actually came out pretty good and Top Ender had some as her after School snack (whilst Big Boy was at an After School Club) and even she passed judgement that it was good. I liked most that the multi cooker was so easy to clean, it was simple to wash the bowl out (and dry) and was done within minutes of the last part of the rice pudding being served up.
I cooked the now famous (well in our house at least!) Gordon Ramsay's Buttermilk Fried Chicken in the Multicooker too, and despite being worried about having such a large fryer on the side in the kitchen, I didn't set fire to myself (it's only happened twice okay?!), or the kitchen (Once. It nearly happened once.), or end up with any new fat burn scars!
Originally when I saw the Intellichef Multicooker, I didn't think that it would be able to replace the various other items in my kitchen that it can do the jobs of. Daddy said that he thought it might be great for having in his flat (that he'll hopefully be getting soon so he doesn't spend half his week commuting) as it would save space. There is a downside that annoys me about the appliance. With the on light being under the dial I can't see it unless I bend down. This is a problem with almost all of my kitchen appliances and I wish that designers would remember that most peoples work tops as at waist height, so that lights and things should be on the "top" of the appliance, or at least somewhere where my bust doesn't impede my view of them!
Other than the light issue, I love this Multicooker. It's easy to use and I'm sure that as time goes on I'll be able to cook up plenty of other meals that will make full use of it's functions and if you want to join me why not enter my giveaway to win one?
I was given a Morphy Richards Intellichef Multicooker to review and one to give away.
