A progress report is displayed on this LCD screen making you know exactly how long is left before your meal is ready. The automatic timer prevents the food from getting burned in case you get engaged with something else while cooking. It turns off automatically immediately the food is ready.

Tefal Cook4Me multicooker comes with a non-stick bowl that has a ceramic coating and an easy to grip plastic handle. Compared to the old-fashioned pressure cooker, it is so much easier to clean. It is very durable especially if it is not exposed to sharp surfaces. You do not need to worry about it peeling off with continuous use. The plastic handles create a safe cooking experience for you. The non-stick pot is dish washer safe.

STEAM BASKET

The steam basket is a great extra that comes with the Cook4Me multicooker allowing you to cook steamed foods, vegetables, fish etc. Like the non-stick pot, the steam basket is also dish washer safe. This is very ideal for cooking rice and vegetables as it can also be used as a sieve. They release little heat to the kitchen environment therefore helping keep the kitchen cool. The steam is released automatically at the end of cooking and it turns itself off.

The self-release safety valve helps to prevent any mishap in the kitchen.

CONS OF TEFAL COOK4ME INTELLIGENT MULTICOOKER

Here are some of the complaints raised by the users of this device. They are valid but they should not stop one from purchasing this device.

  1. It is expensive and not very cost effective for those who want to get it but do not have the means to do so.
  2. It is bulky and heavy
  3. It is not intelligent enough as you still have to participate in some part of the cooking aspect such as the measuring of the ingredients and putting them in place into the cooker.
