The Tefal Cook4Me (CY7018), $349, is one of those rare gems that answers the needs of both these types. This multi-cooker allows you to prepare fast and delicious healthy meals, and gives you the opportunity to try recipes you may not have had the time or courage to approach before. Think you can’t cook risotto in less than 30 minutes? Think again – the Cook4Me does, in under 6 minutes.
With the Cook4Me by your side, you won’t have to fossick around for recipes and additional pots and pans to whip up a fantastic meal. You can start off with something simple like preparing vegetables in the steamer basket and browning meats using the sauté function, or dive into one of the 85 pre-programed meat, seafood and vegetarian recipes. Beef massaman curry, fettuccine carbonara and coriander prawns are just some of the options. Don’t be alarmed, each recipe requires 6 ingredients or less, and half of them take 12 minutes at most to cook (one thing to note is that the advertised cooking time doesn’t’ take into account the 5 or so minutes needed to warm up the Cook4me). After adjusting for how many people you’re cooking for (2, 4, or 6?), the Cook4Me will guide you step-by-step through your meal of choice. The next day you can pull out your Cook4Me again and reheat your leftovers in it!
Tefal understands the importance of convenience so they ensured that all of Cook4Me’s recipes were produced by Australians, which means you’ll easily be able to find the ingredients at your local supermarket. A beginner’s tip: measuring ingredients correctly is very important when using the Cook4Me because the cooking time for each recipe is programmed accordingly. There’s still plenty of room for flexibility though: you can play around with the recipes, sub certain flavours for different ones and there is a ‘keep cooking’ function if you like your food extra tender. Last but not least, cooking in just one pot means cleaning is a breeze!
