In addition to tát cooking programs, a multicooker may have functions to tát keep food warm,[3] reheat it or to tát cook it at a later time. Some multicookers can also function as slow cookers.[5]


In the 1920s in the United Kingdom, basic "multicookers" were marketed to tát consumers as an appliance that would save on gas consumption, to tát save money on gas bills.[6]

Simple electric rice cookers were developed in nhật bản in the 1950s. Over time more functions were added to tát cook other types of grains and soups, and the appliances became known as multicookers.

Modern cookers include electronic time, temperature and pressure controllers and are marketed as "automated multipurpose cooking appliances". The most modern ones include Công nghệ Bluetooth and WiFi capabilities and cooking procedures in recipe scripts, mainly by choosing the temperature, time and pressure in multiple steps, to tát execute and share. [7]

At the same time, the European market had been producing kitchen appliances with individual functions, such as electric kettles, pressure cookers, bread makers, toasters, steamers, microwave ovens, and yogurt makers. The multicooker combines the functions of some of these devices.

Multicookers can make hundreds of dishes characteristic of any cuisine, except those which require specific types of cooking unsupported by the appliances, such as flame grilling.

  • Cook (standard) – comes to tát a boiling point and maintains it for a predetermined amount of time. Useful for preparing soup, broth, oatmeal with milk, rice, and grains. (90-110 °C)
  • Pasta – heats to tát a boiling point and pauses with notification to tát the user that ingredients may be added (further automation would exclude human intervention to tát release ingredients). After that it comes to tát a boil again and maintains the temperature for a predetermined amount of time. The program can be used for cooking pasta, dumplings, eggs, sausages, and other products which need boiling water. (90-115 °C)
  • Stew – brings to tát the boiling point and then continues at a slightly lower temperature. This program can make steamed vegetables, meat, and seafood. (85-105 °C)
  • Fry – this setting can be used to tát fry meat, poultry, fish, vegetables, and seafood. Fry with an open or closed lid. (140-160 °C)
  • Bake – biscuits, casseroles, cake, and pastries (120-180 °C)
  • Rice/grain – heats to tát a boil and maintains the boil until the water is gone (via evaporation or absorption by the ingredients). This setting is used to tát cook boiled rice, buckwheat, peas, beans, and coarse grains. (100 °C)
  • Pilaf – a combination of the rice and bake programs which starts with a full boil and then the temperature is reduced for a time. (90-110 °C then 70-80 °C)
  • Steam – [3] steams vegetables, meat, dumplings, and baby food. (100-115 °C)
  • Soup – makes soup, broth, and various drinks. (90-110 °C)

  • Housing – typically plastic, stainless steel or a combination of both. The toàn thân is mounted or attached to tát other parts of the machine. With an air gap between it and the inner bowl, this functions as a thermal insulator.
  • Inner bowl [1][4] – in most modern designs, the bowl is removable and has a non-stick coating (teflon, ceramic, etc.). The non-stick coating is important for multicookers to tát operate properly. Non-stick coating keeps food from burning and sticking to tát the bottom and walls of the bowl which prevents disruption of heat during higher heat cooking or leads to tát uneven heating. It is unlike conventional cookware or slow cookers which must be stirred occasionally.
  • Lid – this seals the multicooker preventing the contents from splashing or the food from drying out. Some multicookers have a glass lid.[8]
  • Heating element – mounted in the housing, it cooks the food. Temperatures can reach 40-180 °C allowing any method of cooking from keeping food warm to tát baking or frying. The heating element is typically located in the bottom of a multicooker.[2] Some more sophisticated multicookers have smaller heating elements on the sides and in the lid.
  • Temperature sensors – usually located in the center of the housing's bottom, touching the pan to tát ensure accurate readings. The control panel provides information about the temperature of the bowl’s contents. Some multicookers also have temperature sensors on the sides and on top to tát allow fine control of heating elements in the lid and sides.
  • Pressure sensor – this may be installed if the multicooker supports pressure cooking.
  • Control panel – part of the housing, this consists of a microprocessor with programs which are displayed showing the process, temperature and programs.[3] It also includes several buttons to tát control the process.
  • Condensate collector – typically a small container or an area around multicooker's bowl to tát collect condensation appearing on the lid.
