12 best multicooker pressure cookers

Review of the best according to the editorial board. On the selection criteria. This material is subjective and does not constitute advertising and does not serve as a purchase guide. Before buying, you need to consult with a specialist.

Multicooker pressure cookers help housewives spend less time cooking – just load the food into the bowl of the device, set the heat treatment program and go about your business. The delayed start-up technique will prepare breakfast in the morning while you sleep, cook porridge for the baby – a young mother can devote more time to the child, and in the festive bustle she will cope with frying or cooking meat and vegetables without human intervention.

How to choose a multicooker

The prefix 'multi' indicates the versatility of the multicooker: it is capable of preparing a variety of dishes, the recipes for which are often described in the books attached to the purchase kit. However, there are many modifications of these 'smart' devices. So, what you need to look for when choosing a multicooker:

  1. Functional. There are conventional units in which heating elements raise the temperature to the desired level, heating elements or induction heat treatment of products takes place. There are multicooker-pressure cookers in which high pressure is connected to normal heating – dishes at the same temperature reach the desired state in a shorter time. The problem is that not all products are suitable for such express cooking.
  2. Power. The higher its value, the faster the walls are heated, and the wider the variability of setting temperatures and the choice of dishes, respectively.
  3. The size of the bowl is directly comparable to the power of the multicooker-pressure cooker. So for a large bowl of 5-6 liters, a performance of at least 1000 W is required, for a capacity of 3-5 liters – about 800 W, and for 2-3 liters – from 700 W. The volume of the bowl is also important in determining the number of family members; on average, the calculation is 1.5-2 liters per person. To prepare meals for 2 persons, you should choose a multicooker with a capacity of 3-4 liters, for 4 – 6-8 liters.
  4. Convenient design of the apparatus. The first thing you should pay attention to is a tight-fitting lid, which should not have any backlash. The sealing rim is especially important for pressure cookers. The lid can be closed with a button or more reliable and safe locking elements, can be hinged or completely removable. The inner part in contact with food must be removed for washing – not all budget models have this. The lid should open at least 900 to safely remove the hot bowl, which should also be chosen with fondness – it is convenient when it has heat-resistant handles on its sides, like a saucepan.
  5. Bowl working cover. The metal container is coated with either Teflon or non-stick ceramic. Both require careful handling, but Teflon loses ground much faster and flakes off, so the bowl is more likely to become unusable. There are bowls made entirely of ceramics, their weakness is instability to shock. The best option is a stainless steel bowl. Some multicooker comes with several removable containers.
  6. The number of programs often overestimates the cost of the device, and it is not always justified – some modes can be replaced with classic or manual settings. A good multicooker should have several programs: cooking porridge, cooking cereals, stewing, frying, baking, multi-cook (user mode with manual settings for temperature and cooking time).
  7. Body material. Plastic models are more affordable, but less prone to mechanical damage (scratches, bumps), metal is a more solid and durable material, but makes the device heavier and increases its cost. Neither plastic nor steel affects the functionality of the multicooker.
  8. Design and software features. The rubberized legs prevent the device from sliding on the table top, the presence of the display makes it possible to control the cooking process. It's also good if you can not only manually set the time and heating, but also disable automatic temperature maintenance. Some multicookers have a 3D heating function, that is, the bottom and walls maintain the same temperature, which has a beneficial effect on the cooking time (typical for induction machines). For families with children, we recommend purchasing a device with protection against starting when the bowl is empty. Delayed start, control via Wi-Fi – you can choose a pressure cooker, taking into account any customer's needs.

REDMOND RMC-PM503

Rating: 4.8

REDMOND RMC-PM503

The first inexpensive multicooker-pressure cooker REDMOND RMC-PM503 is a real polyglot of the kitchen language, because the software contains 12 modes: porridge with milk, cereals on water, a double boiler, frying, stewing, baking, pilaf, deep fat, as well as yogurt, pasta and dough , user program for manual control. The bowl keeps warm after the end of the cooking cycle, food can be 'brought' or kept hot for the desired time. The start of the program can be postponed for the required time up to 24 hours.

The power of a five-liter multicooker-pressure cooker 900 W is the optimal value for a volume designed for a family of 3-4 people.

The device is controlled by touch buttons for precise recoil, and the display will show how much time remains until the end of the cycle, in which mode the pressure cooker is operating, and what is the temperature inside the bowl. The inner lid is removable for cleaning, while the Teflon non-stick aluminum bowl is easy to clean by hand without the use of abrasives. By the way, if necessary, the capacity can be purchased separately at an affordable price.

The factory set of the multicooker-steamer includes a container for steam cooking, a measuring glass, a scoop and a flat spoon, as well as a book for 120 recipes that allow you to expand your family menu.

The average price of the REDMOND RMC-PM503 multicooker-pressure cooker is 6,900 rubles.

Advantages

  • Long-term maintenance of the temperature inside the bowl;
  • Rich equipment;
  • Removable cover;
  • Can be used without internal pressure by pulling out the valve; Fu
  • manual control function 'multipovar';
  • Book of recipes;
  • The ability to change the bowl;
  • Automatic heating can be turned off.

disadvantages

  • The lid does not fit snugly on all pressure cookers;
  • Soiled plastic case.

Marta MT-4309

Rating: 4.7

Marta MT-4309

The popular multicooker-pressure cooker with pressure cooker function Marta MT-4309 is in second position in the rating. It is as powerful as its predecessor – 900 W with the same volume of a bowl of 5 liters, so it cooks quickly without wasting energy and time. The first difference from the leader is only 9 operating modes, but they are enough for cooking any dishes from frying, stewing and boiling to yoghurt fermentation, but there are 24 user modes with manual adjustment! That is, deep fats and dough rising that are not in the database can be programmed independently by setting the temperature and time that will be displayed on the screen and will allow you to stay aware of what is happening inside the pressure cooker. A ceramic-lined bowl keeps food warm for several hours – a multicooker-pressure cooker keeps food hot on demand. And so that porridge, pilaf or pie are ready for breakfast or a certain time, you can load all the products and delay the start of their preparation until 24 hours. By the way, the temperature can be adjusted in the basic and manual programs.

The body of the pressure cooker is metal, non-marking, it is easy to care for it, as well as the inner bowl and removable lid. Users note that it is not the most convenient to use the device due to the complex design of the lid, it is also problematic to get a bowl without handles, an uninformative instruction will throw up a hassle right after the purchase. But in the future, the owners get used to it and problems with the operation no longer arise.

The average price of the Marta MT-4309 multicooker-pressure cooker is 5,300 rubles.

Advantages

  • 9 basic modes and 24 user modes;
  • Optimal power with bowl volume;
  • Stable work without complaints about the quality of the mechanisms;
  • Display;
  • Metal body;
  • Convenient care.

disadvantages

  • Design flaws (a bowl without a handle, its inconvenient installation, an inconvenient disk for a double boiler).

Vitesse VS-3003

Rating: 4.6

Vitesse VS-3003

In terms of power and volume of the bowl, the Vitesse VS-3003 pressure cooker does not differ from its predecessors – 900 W and 5 liters, respectively. Its software contains only 6 cooking modes, but 24 manually changeable programs. To the counters of the multicooker-pressure cooker, we include the possibility of voice guidance, which, for various reasons, is not liked by all users, but the function can be turned off.

You won't be able to cook soup in a slow cooker, and this is a drawback. There is also no possibility of temperature regulation. The temperature of the bowl is maintained at a good level, which cannot be said about the inner coating: it must be protected from abrasives and scratches – finding a replaceable container is problematic. The body of the multicooker-pressure cooker is metal and presentable, decorated with smooth flowers along the matte texture of the wall.

There are no complaints about the design of the Vitesse VS-3003, which cannot be said about the recipe book translated, as you can see, illiterate and illogical.

The average price of the Vitesse VS-3003 multicooker-pressure cooker is the lowest in the category – 3 399 rubles.

Advantages

  • A set of basic programs and 24 manual control modes;
  • Convenient design;
  • Aesthetic exterior;
  • Food containers included (check with the seller);
  • Sound accompaniment;
  • Best price.

disadvantages

  • There is no soup cooking function;
  • Fragile bowl coating;
  • Inability to adjust the heating temperature.

REDMOND RMC-M140

Rating: 4.9

REDMOND RMC-M140

Redmond presents the best multicooker-pressure cooker in the mid-range RMC-M140. It is as multifunctional as the representatives of the REDMOND family of devices – it cooks in 10 main modes, one of which is a 'multi-cook', which can be programmed in as many variations of temperature, time and the nature of the heat effect as you like, a total of 24 manual settings. Such a variety is possible thanks to the power increased to 1100-1300 W with a standard volume of a bowl of 5 liters, capable of retaining heat for a long time.

Unlike budget multi-cooker pressure cookers, REDMOND RMC-M140 has a comfortable bowl – it has handles for a comfortable grip. The non-stick coating is retained for a long time, but if necessary, the container can be replaced with a new one. Delay start option is standard – 24 hours.

The multicooker-pressure cooker has a hinged top cover; it also has a display with control buttons. For easy carrying of the multicooker-pressure cooker, a handle is provided on the body, however, the metal finish affects the weight of the product. It is also necessary to take into account the relatively slow build-up of pressure, as well as the noisy discharge of steam. In the presence of the 'Preparation of yoghurt' mode, there are no molds for the product in the kit – their lack is noted by many owners of equipment.

The average price of the REDMOND RMC-M140 multicooker-pressure cooker is around 16,000 rubles.

Advantages

  • Large selection of programs and cooking modes;
  • Wear-resistant bowl with handles;
  • Compact dimensions;
  • Book for 200 recipes';
  • Manual setting of temperature and time;
  • Metal body.

disadvantages

  • Long-term set of pressure;
  • No yoghurt trays.

REDMOND RMC-P350

Rating: 4.8

REDMOND RMC-P350

Slightly inferior to its predecessor, the multicooker-pressure cooker of the same brand REDMOND, the RMC-P350 series. Differences are observed in several parameters: lower power – only 900 W, there is no possibility of temperature control, but the cooking modes are also 10. However, there is no 'mutipovar' function, which somewhat limits the possibilities for preparing special dishes.

Maintaining the pace and delaying the start until 24 hours will surprise no one, but perhaps with a unique design: a multicooker with a large touchscreen display and a lid lock on a black and white body looks cosmic. The recipe book has disappointed, but this is a common flaw in REDMOND.

The price of the REDMOND RMC-P350 multicooker-pressure cooker is one of the most affordable in the segment – 8900 rubles.

Advantages

  • Optimal power with a 5 liter cup;
  • Unusual design;
  • Safe closing of the lid;
  • Large informative display;
  • 3 pressure modes.

disadvantages

  • Long-term set of pressure;
  • Bowl without handles;
  • The recipe book needs improvement;
  • The silicone seal absorbs odors (a common problem).

Moulinex CE 501132

Rating: 4.8

Moulinex CE 501132

The third place in the rating is taken by the Moulinex CE 501132 multicooker-pressure cooker with a power of 1000 W. Unlike its predecessors, it is able to work only in 8 preset modes without special user programs, but with the ability to adjust the cooking temperature. By the way, the pressure inside rises somewhat faster than in Redmond devices, on the other hand, users note a slight sticking of the dishes to the bottom of the bowl. Also, at first, the smell of rubber is noticeable, which eventually fades away, and there were no problems with the absorption of odors by silicone.

The five-liter bowl has no handles, making it difficult to use. But the inner cover is removable, it is convenient to wash it.

Fans of the classics will definitely like the Moulinex CE 501132 multicooker-steamer: its unusual exterior in a plastic case of white-brown scale with floral ornaments on the walls. The average price of the Moulinex CE 501132 multicooker-pressure cooker is 4,500 rubles.

Advantages

  • 8 modes with the possibility of temperature control;
  • Relatively light weight 5 kg;
  • Increased power and cooking speed;
  • Attractive design;
  • Affordable price.

disadvantages

  • The emphasis is only on 3 legs;
  • There are no handles on the cup;
  • The lid is not hinged, but removable.

Oursson MP5015PSD

Rating: 4.7

Oursson MP5015PSD

For fans of extravagant technology, we present the Oursson MP5015PSD multicooker-pressure cooker in a bright red (green, white or orange) unusual steel case. It can be steamed, in its own juice or high pressure frying using a minimum of energy at 1,200 watts. On the other hand, why such a performance for a device that has only 7 operating modes without a separate user program? Fortunately, you can adjust the cooking temperature.

Another advantage of the kitchen unit is the bowl with handles, which is convenient to use while cooking. On the side of the case there is a display with a clock showing the temperature and cooking time.

Assessing the advantages and disadvantages of the Oursson MP5015PSD multicooker-pressure cooker, experts and users come to the conclusion: the cost of the multicooker-pressure cooker is too high, averaging 8,900 rubles.

Advantages

  • Increased power with a bowl volume of 5 liters;
  • Bowl with handles;
  • Unusual design in a metal case;
  • Optimal set of programs;
  • Possibility of manual input of cooking parameters.

disadvantages

  • Overpriced;
  • Not the most reliable design – improvement is required.

REDMOND RMC-PM380

Rating: 4.9

REDMOND RMC-PM380

The best pressure cooker for a family of 3-5 is REDMOND RMC-PM380. She has a bowl increased to 6 liters with a Teflon non-stick coating, only the manufacturer did not endow it with handles, and this is a drawback. But in other aspects, the device is worthy: a power of 1000 W, 14 ready-made programs, 6 pressure modes and 8 without pressure, there is the possibility of keeping the bowl warm (switched off manually) and the pasteurization function. At the same time, it is possible to manually adjust the cooking parameters by means of electronic control. For the convenience of the user, an informative display is provided on the case.

The design of the multicooker is convenient: there are practically no significant comments from the chefs to it: although the lid is removable, it is securely fixed during cooking, its inner part is removed for washing. The outer casing is metal with a graphic ornament, kitchen dirt does not stick to it, but the material significantly increases the weight of the device.

The REDMOND RMC-PM380 multicooker pressure cooker has a steamer attachment – a multifunctional and universal device. The manufacturer also took care of a varied menu of buyers and, along with the documentation, added a recipe book to the kit.

The average price of the REDMOND RMC-PM380 multicooker-pressure cooker, with all the advantages of the unit, is only 5,500 rubles.

UNIT USP-1210S

Rating: 4.7

UNIT USP-1210S

In second place in the rating is the UNIT USP-1210S smokehouse pressure cooker, which is its difference from its predecessors. You can cook, fry, steam and grill in it – for the latter there is a special grate and a container for chips, which is installed on the bottom. The built-up pressure speeds up all processes, and the dish is cooked much faster than in a conventional multicooker. The power of the device is increased to 1100 W, which is more than the leader in the category. At the same time, the volume of the bowl is the same – 6 liters, its inner coating is non-stick ceramic, wear-resistant. By the way, there are 2 bowls in a set, as well as a grid for a steamer and a grill with placement in 4 levels.

There are 13 programs in the multicooker-pressure cooker (less than that of the leader), it is possible to regulate the temperature of heat treatment. The multicooker is controlled by touch, a small blue LСD display is responsible for the indication. At the end of the program, the multicooker-pressure cooker switches to energy-saving mode and maintains the temperature of the dish.

Experts did not find any significant shortcomings in the functionality and design of the UNIT USP-1210S – the device receives recommendatory reviews. There are misunderstandings between the apparatus and the hostesses, but only at first, during the period of mastering the technique after the purchase.

The average price is 7,000 rubles.

  • Noted: Baking burns to varying degrees;
  • Few recipes.

The best induction multicooker premium segment

The previously considered multi-cookers of the budget and middle segments are heating elements – they are heated by metal elements. If the 3D function is not available, the temperature distribution is uneven. Premium devices are equipped with induction technology: heating is carried out by the bowl itself, made of special safe alloys, under the influence of electromagnetic waves of adjustable intensity.

Cuckoo CMC-HE1055F

Rating: 4.9

Cuckoo CMC-HE1055F

The leading position in the category of rating of premium multicooker goes to the model Cuckoo CMC-HE1055F with a power of 1400 W with a standard bowl volume of 5 liters. It is not presented as a pressure cooker in the classical sense, that is, the pressure is not built up in it, but the cooking speed is still increased due to more powerful heating of products and a decrease in the duration of its cycle.

The device works in 7 preset modes: porridge in milk, a double boiler, cereals in water or broth, stewing, baking and pilaf, as well as yogurt sourdough. In this case, in each case, you can adjust the temperature to obtain the dishes of the desired condition. Heating inside the bowl is uniform 3D due to induction. Another advantage of the model is the cup with handles and non-stick coating. There is also a voice guidance that can be turned off.

The weakness of the induction multicooker Cuckoo is a temperature sensor that malfunctions after 1-1.5 years of active use. The problem is solved by repair.

The average price of the Cuckoo CMC-HE1055F is 43,000 rubles.

Advantages

  • 7 main cooking modes with the ability to adjust parameters;
  • Convenient design, there are handles on the bowl;
  • Voice guidance;
  • Increased cooking speed thanks to induction.

disadvantages

  • Temperature sensor problem;
  • High price.

Tefal RK805E32

Rating: 4.8

Tefal RK805E32

The Tefal RK805E32 multicooker has less power compared to the category leader – 1200 W, otherwise it is practically not inferior to its predecessor: it cooks in 10 ready-made modes with the possibility of manually expanding the settings to 69 modes! The dishes are placed in a spherical seven-layer bowl, patented by Tefal, which simulates the heating of dishes in a Russian oven, due to which the distribution of heat is as uniform as possible from all sides. Simmering, boiling, frying, stewing – induction allows you to perform any actions for cooking, preserving their taste. The necessary condition of the products is always under control – there are many sensors inside the multicooker: the temperature, the amount of water, the weight of the food item are taken into account, the device, taking into account these indicators, independently regulates the heating and operating time of the mode in a certain range. Information about it can always be seen on the display.

The only drawback of the device is the noisy inductor, from which there is a little hum. Users get used to it after a few days of using the multicooker.

The average price of Tefal RK805E32 is 12 800 rubles.

Advantages

  • Multilayer spherical bowl;
  • Large selection of modes – ready-made and user-installed programs;

In third place in the rating is an induction multicooker with a power of 1200 W with the widest range of ready-made programs – there are 12 of them, you can manually get much more combinations by changing the temperature and cooking time. In this case, the device will remember several copyright settings, and in the future you can use them again.

The stainless steel bowl has no handles, but it is durable and practical: the dishes do not burn, the surface is easy to clean, as is the plastic and metal body of the multicooker itself. The control of the settings is push-button, it is possible to block from switching if there are small children in the house. We note the rich set of Bosch MUC48W68: a container of two levels for a double boiler, a deep-fat basket with a handle, a spatula and a measuring cup, as well as documentation.

The characteristics of the Bosch MUC48W68 multicooker are similar to less expensive models, so experts and users considered the price too high – 16,500 rubles, which is partially offset by a good bundle.

  • 12 basic programs and the possibility of your own settings, including saving in memory;
  • Wide equipment;
  • Convenient management;
