Whether you have a large family, or live alone, there's always a magic multicooker to suit every kind of home

Whether you have a large family, or live alone, there's always a magic multicooker to suit every kind of home. It could be a one-person pot, or a big sharing one - these popular multi cookers do the cooking for you so you spend less time on great meals.

1. Nathome Portable Multi Cooker

Not all of us are fortunate enough to be spending these lockdown times with our family or housemates. For those who are alone at home, under quarantine or simply a healthcare worker living solo to protect their family, cooking for oneself can be a huge chore. Almost the same amount of preparation and cleaning goes into making a solo meal as cooking for two or more people. That’s why this Nathome Portable Multi Cooker is an amazing find! Small, portable and easy-to-clean, this multi cooker is perfect for studio flats, tiny rental rooms or just those without access to a kitchen. A dual cookware system allows you to both fry and boil – so you can whip up a Stir Fried Black Pepper Chicken to pair with a hearty Carrot Ginger Turmeric Soup. We love how both the pot and non-stick frying pan can be stacked together and used as a take-away container – ideal for all you hardworking essential services folks who still want to eat home-cooked food. Even the handles can be folded in when not in use, saving you precious storage space. What’s more, you can brew a soothing Luo Han Guo Tea in a flat-based teapot (not included) for rainy days. It’s definitely one of the best solo multi cookers out there!

2. Toyomi 3.5L Multi Cooker 3.5

Do you miss having hotpot at Beauty In a Pot or Hai Di Lao? We sure do! It’s not difficult to recreate the steaming, savory hotpot at home with this Toyomi 3.5L Multi Cooker 3.5. Whether it is a spicy Tom Yum Soup or a comforting Ginseng Chicken Soup, this multi cooker can handle the ingredients for couples or small families. We like the transparent lid as you can keep a watchful eye on your food and its automatic temperature control prevents your broth from boiling over. While this may be primarily used as a steamboat set, you can also use it for deep-frying some tasty Crispy Fried Chicken with Sambal or steaming Teochew Style Steamed Pomfret. If you are a fan of one-pot meals, this will be the best multi cooker for you.

3. Tefal Home Chef Smart 6L Multi Cooker

For those who are cooking for larger families, it makes sense to get this versatile Tefal Home Chef Smart 6L MultiCooker. Home chefs with large families often spend almost the entire day cooking, as so much preparation is needed to make a big feast every day! This multi cooker will ease your stress in cooking, as it comes with some super time saving functions like pressure-cooking and sous-vide. You can now cook a wide variety of broths and hearty soups for the entire family 80% faster than traditional methods with the pressure cooker function. The sous-vide function allows you to multi-task while you slow cook your Steak with Walnut and Blue Cheese and Keto Braised Pork Belly to perfection with the in-built timer. With over 15 pre-set functions to choose from, it can literally make anything from breakfast to dinner, including desserts like Gula Melaka Pineapple Upside Down Cake. It even has a sauce thickening function, which can save your over watery Beef Rendang or Thai Beef Green Curry without the hassle. Tefal, the pioneer of the non-stick feature, has really got it all figured out for safety and cleaning as well. This is one of the few multi cookers with a one-touch safety pressure release button (no more scalding yourselves on the hot steam!) and dishwasher safe pots and accessories. For what it does, this multi cooker is a huge steal for home cooks with big families.

4. AUGIENB Electric Multi Cooker

At first glance, this looks like it came out of a dollhouse! With its effeminate colors and cute knobs, this multi cooker that does it all is clearly targeted at the girly home cooks. As this OEM Electric Multi Cooker is on the small side, serving portions are ideal for 1-2 people. What we love about it is that unlike other multi cookers, this particular one allows you to cook several items at once, which means you can serve them all up earlier while still hot! Toast up the bread for the well-loved Avocado Toast with Smoked Salmon in the oven while poaching the eggs in the pot. There’s even room to squeeze in a small Healthy Broccoli Spinach Soup to pair with your meal. With its attractive bright colors and easy-to-use features, this multi cooker makes a great gift for novice home cooks as well.

5. OEM Electric Multi Cooker

Unless you are lucky enough to live on a big estate with an outdoor patio for grilling and barbeques, most of us only have BBQ on special occasions such as gatherings or parties. With this AUGIENB Electric Multi Cooker, you can take your BBQ indoors (we recommend a well-ventilated dining room or balcony). Recreate the Teppanyaki from the comforts of your home, or combine a hearty steamboat with Grilled Tofu Skewers or Chicken Satay. The non-stick pan part of this multi cooker comes with raised ridges, creating the desirable grill marks on your meat. This makes for more refined meat textures and allow sauces to adhere better on your food. Stone-coated and sturdy, this multi cooker will last you many meals to come.
