Morphy Richards Intellichef – Any Good?

There have been several adverts recently promoting the Morphy Richards 5 litre Intellichef Multicooker and it’s 8 in 1 functions. Sounds too good to be true but if you’re after a single appliance that will fry ‘real’ chips, stew and bake to mention but 3 things you can do, probably worth the modest price tag it carries if you have room to store it. That said, if you are in a bedsit or a flat without a proper kitchen or simply want something simple to use rather than use an oven and hob then read on! Also useful if you have difficulty getting things in and out of a below counter oven for what ever reason.

Quick points include:

  • The Intellichef multi cooker has 8 in 1 functions for all your cooking styles so no need for multiple appliances
  • The 5 litre bowl capacity is large enough for a full meal for the whole family
  • The toughened glass lid makes it easy to monitor your foods cooking process
  • The clear temperature display makes it easy to cook with precision
  • Accessories include a steaming rack and frying basket

Developed as a versatile appliance that allows you to cook using a variety of different cooking techniques in one appliance.

Capabilities

Use it to slow-cook casseroles and curries, to steam fish and vegetables, to make stir fries and to braise various cuts of meat. Create deep fried dishes like chips and onion rings, boil ingredients such as rice, pasta and potatoes, grill meat until it is tender and fast-stews for risottos and soups. Serve up a complete meal for up to four people, or a side dish such as steamed vegetables for up to eight people.

Usage

The control knob allows you to select the correct temperature for your desired cooking function and the indicator light ensures you know when Intellichef reaches temperature to begin cooking. The toughened glass lid means you can monitor your foods cooking progress without disturbing the contents and if you need to raise or lower the heat, the clear temperature display makes it easy to do so with precision.

Ease of use

Once the pot has cooled, it’s easy to clean in hot soapy water. Intellichef comes complete with a steaming rack and frying basket that stores inside the cooking pot.

I have had the cooker for over a month now and have tried various functions – steaming, casseroles, rice cooking and stir fry – all of which it performs very well. I cannot judge it on slow cooking because this is something I never do. I think it is good value for money, as I have tried other more expensive multi cookers which have disappointed. It lives on the counter in my kitchen, being in regular use, but this is not a problem as I find it quite an attractive design. It arrived very quickly.

If you don’t have one of these or never used one, once you do you will be seriously hooked. I use this nearly as much as my oven. It heats super quick and is so easy to clean. It’s also very light to move about.
