It has a capacity of 2.2 ltr, so would be quite a small pressure cooker. That said I am interested for the same reasons.

If anyone could disclose their experiences using one as a pressure cooker, that would be brilliant.

Not much use a pressure cooker if it's 2.2litres, ur only meant to fill pressure cookers to about 2/3 full.

As a slow/pressure cooker that's really small, not a great deal in my opinion....

ok as a pressure cooker but no good as a slow cooker timer ony goes for 3 hours need 6-8 for slow cooker

Absolutely brilliant as a rice cooker, can't fault it but be careful if using as a pressure cooker as my trip to A&E over the weekend and one very sore and scalded arm will prove that it will allow you to open the lid when not fully depressurised (the valve was fully open and no more steam was apparent) spilling all the contents out and onto my arm ... oO

Will be buying another as a spare as new Aldi opened near me and have given us 4 x £5 off vouchers to use in-store

maybe not for a family of four, but for one or two people, fine in a lot of uses.

Can anyone confirm if this actually slow cooks?
It seems a previous version didn't - it can just fast cook with a delay.

Bought one of these last time they were offered. Waited until they were discounted 50% and would say that they are worth it, JUST, at that price point. There were plenty of them available at the discount price.

Basically, I only use mine very occasionally. The problem with these so-called 3-in-1 devices is that they are a jack of all trades and a master of none. It is neither a very good pressure cooker nor a very good slow cooker, being too small for either. Tried cooking rice in it once and never again. Rice doesn't like being pressure cooked. It turns into one sticky, inseparable mass. Not even good sticky rice.

It's one and only real selling point is that it is temperature-controlled using an electrical thermostat like a slow cooker and you can put what you want to cook in it, set the time and basically forget about it, which you can't do with a standard pressure cooker on a hob.

I've found it best at cooking standard pressure cooker fare, such as chicken.

All-in-all, it's a bit of a gimmick and if my kitchen was a sinking flying balloon, it would be one of the first things overboard.

I reckon that the only way I could slow cook with mine would be to leave the pressure weight in the 'release' position, letting out stem/pressure right from the outset. The timer doesn't have the range of a typical slow cooker in use, ie hours.

Cheers. Have limited space, mostly only cooking for me and would like both options - but want proper slow cooking that I can leave on in the morning and come back with the food ready, which it doesn't sound like this will do, especially leaving meat out in it on hot summer days.

Wow you couldn't have been using it properly then as I use mine nearly ever day (us Asians do love our rice) and I get better results than my previous (lots of) stand alone rice cookers and it's quicker too. The way to cook rice properly is use the measuring cup and then look at the notches on the side of the bowl to correspond with the number of cups (I find slightly below is to my taste - over this =amount gives a sticky mess) .

Another tip is if you have no measuring device then stick your first finger into the bowl/pan until the tip (not the finger nail ladies !) touches the top of the rice and the water should reach the first groove in your finger - has worked every time for me before in a saucepan before I entered the dark world of rice cookers ...

After all these years... I still use this technique as I find it gives consistently the best rice whatever method of cooking.

Only used the Tefal ones but theyre amazing. I only really use it for rice or as a slower cooker but I couldn't cook rice without it now
