If you’re like me, you feel justified in spending money on an item if you use it more than once or twice after you have bought it. What’s much more satisfying is buying an item which you use constantly because it can then deserve its place on the worktop. The Redmond MultiCooker is one of those purchases that you will be glad you have made because you can use it for so many things. The only job it can’t do is be a pressure cooker.
The RMC-M4502E is 29.5 x 40 x 23 cm in size and is black and bronze in colour, this is shiny and will look good in any kitchen. It has a capacity of 5 litres although your cooking capacity will be less than this as you won’t be able to cook with the bowl full to the brim. This will still let you make enough food for a family meal. The bowl is removable for easy cleaning and is accessed by pressing the button on the top of the machine to open the lid. It has an easy to use touch button control panel on the front of the machine so that you can use the pre-programmed options or set your own.

You can steam vegetables, meat or fish with the steam function. There is a pre-set time for each type of food which comes up when selected but if you find it’s not long enough or too long for your taste you can manually change the times to suit yourself.
There is also the option to fry in the Redmond MultiCooker, you can fry your vegetables before making a stew, sear your meat or fry it to fully cooked if you wish, and you can also fry your fish if you like it better that way than steaming.
If you like to set up and make a stew before you go to work so that it is ready for when you come back then you can using the stew function, you can set the timer to cook for up to 12 hours and you have a delayed timer function so that everything cooks in time for when you want it and it will go to the keep warm setting when the timer has finished.
If you would like to use your multi-cooker for making rice then the Quick Cook function is the selection you need. The inner pot is marked up with measures and you get a measuring cup and rice spoon with this cooker too so it’s easy and quick to set up when you want to make your rice.
You have an oatmeal setting so if you like porridge for your breakfast for you and your family then set it up at night and use the delay timer so you can have it cooking for when you get up in the morning.
There is a pasta setting which you can not only use for pasta but also use for dumplings and eggs. Don’t forget soups, these types of machines are perfect for making home made soups and you can also have it kept warm when it finishes cooking so it’s ready when you want it and keep warm for second helpings if you leave the keep warm function switched on.
You can even use your multi-cooker like a mini oven and make cake with the cake function but to give you the most flexibility you can use the multi-cook function which allows you to select your own temperatures and times for cooking and you can even bake bread using this or deep fry as you receive a deep fat frying basket with the unit.
People who have bought this multi-cooker for making stews and soups have found it to work really well, the steamer and keep warm function are good too. They have found the product to be made to a good quality and are very happy with their purchase.
The not so good parts people have found is that it is a bit complicated to understand in the beginning and takes a bit of playing around with to work it out. Although the temperature is adjustable they didn’t feel it got hot enough for the oil for deep frying.
