Sad machine

published

This is a very frustrating machine to use.Have already had one replacement from Harvey Norman,but this second machine is no better and has same problem as the first.I get the error message saying ‘not enough water’ however adding more still doesn’t work,then have to cool down take all food out and continue cooking on stove.Please don’t buy.


Very disappointed.. Error Code 21 constantly

published

2nd time replaced within a month, The first Machine I managed to cook two meals worked perfectly then third time machine would not pressurise Error code 21, tried manual cooking to no avail. Adding extra water again error code 21 Returned to Harvey Norman waiting another two weeks for a replacement..
The Second machine has not even let me cook one meal, error code 21 once again over and over followed the instructions for the meal on the machine but once again error code 21 so back to the stove top for me and will return the second machine tomorrow to the store
Very Disappointing Cook4Me

Purchased in November 2021 at Harvey Norman Appliances Physical Store for $330.00.

if You are contemplating purchasing this product.......dont!

published

Was absolutely delighted with this product initially. Just after the warranty ran out it stopped working . According to many other reviews Ive read this is pretty common and the makers are no help which is pretty disappointing. I would not recommend this product to anyone or purchase any Tefal product in the future.

Great product

published

Purchased over six years ago (2013) from memory, and use it at least twice a week so that is over six hundred meals without a problem, nothing wearing off, easy to clean and lid comes apart for easy cleaning, reading some of the reviews one wonders why they didn't read the instructions or take the faulty item back to the store

Purchased at Stan Cash for $200.00.

Best appliance I’ve ever purchased

published

Originally bought this thinking it would be good for busy weeknights. But this machine is the best appliance I’ve ever bought. I use it for everything! Cooks risotto and pasta dishes in no time. And now that I have a baby I’m using it to steam all our veggies for her solids. I use it every other day and it is well worth the money for anyone thinking about the cost to use ratio. Built in recipes are easy and delicious too.

Time saver

published

Great product, saves hips of time for cooking, total blessing when you have little kids. Best for cooking risotto (within 20 mins) and curries. For example, the Massaman curry takes just under 40 mins to cook. Lots of built in recipes. Almost stopped cooking on cooktop. Handy application. The multi cooker doesn't retain smells or flavours after use.

Great Pressure Cooker

published

It’s a good pressure cooker with built in recipes, but I would hardly call it a multi cooker. It’s great for all in one bowl means and does a good job as a faster slow cooker, with similar results. The slow cook function is pretty average and hard to use. The manual says you can slow cook with the lid down, but the appliance itself won’t let you.

More than happy with this excellent pressure cooker...

published

I purchased this pressure cooker and I more than happy. Quick and excellent food cooker, in fact I am looking to purchase another one. I have made chicken soup, casseroles, spaghetti bolognaise and stir fries with ease and it cooks in a matter of minutes. The bread and butter pudding recipe is the only one I am happy with in the recipe book but I mainly use my own recipes. Would highly recommend this pressure for ease and quickness and well cooked food.
Unhappy people need to experiment to get the good results.

Best solution for people who do not like to cook.

published

After looking at the reviews in Product review, we bought the Cook4Me from JB Hi-Fi. Where as this cooker does not produce the best taste, it works very well for people like me who do not love to cook but sometimes need to cook as a back up. Also, cleaning is very easy. I have not tried out of set menu yet but will soon try that.

I use it all the time.

published

Right from the start I found the Cook4Me easy to use. I use it for cooking rice, steaming vegetables and making curries, stews and vegetarian casseroles. I don't use the onboard recipes that much except for the timing steamed veges, rice etc. I usually make up my own ingredients, brown onions etc. then add vegetables and use the Manual "Quick cook" which is 10 minutes and the mean is ready. The recipes supplied was a good start for me, but once you become more confident with this wonderful machine you can adapt many pressure cooker recipes. I actually have two in case one stops working as I couldn't live without it. Saves on power too no having a slow cooker on for 8 hours.

Cook 4 me +

published

I think this product is excellent,. But they do need to look into a decent recipe book also, for cook4 me + some times you want to sit back and look at all the recipe be fore you start and what’s in them, and Tefal customer service centres not much help,

Great when short on time

published

Great for time poor people. Got this after having a baby when we simply didn't have time to cook. Very easy to use and having the ingredients and recipes stored is a bonus. found it very easy to clean also. One thing though I found even though it says 10 minutes for recipe it didn't include the pre heat time and time to release pressure which adds another 15 min
