The ‘Pressure Cooker’ function, as I hope it will take the ‘pressure’ off me in the kitchen.

Jo Fletcher June 28, 2013 - 7:12 AM

My husband and 15 year old to cook a meal in it! With the pressure cooker function it would be ready quicker! And easy to clean!!

Gabriela Douglas June 28, 2013 - 7:17 AM

Recently returning to full time work with three young boys in my family, this machine would take the pressure off at dinner time and allow me more time to catch up and talk with the boys

Kirsty Ross-Bell June 28, 2013 - 7:20 AM

Slow Cooker or pressure cooker function would be great and allow me to get rid of a few other machines and free up space.

vickilorraine June 28, 2013 - 7:22 AM

Love the idea of browning meat and onions before slow cooking therefore cutting out more pans to wash up.

Gaylene Walsh June 28, 2013 - 7:38 AM

I love the fact I can MULTI task while using the MULTI Cooker

Shirley Gifford June 28, 2013 - 7:38 AM

With a husband that works long shifts, being able to use the slow cooker would mean more “quality time” for us before he has to sleep

Elizabeth M June 28, 2013 - 7:41 AM

Teaching my son about healthy eating! The steamer/ rice cooker would be used all the time at our house! Veggies and rice curry! Yum!

Ingrid June 28, 2013 - 7:44 AM

love the multi function of many appliances in 1, with all us mums being superwoman, this would definitely save me loads of time. thanks

Alanna June 28, 2013 - 7:56 AM

Soup maker – to make warming comfort food, to warm my family’s tummies on our cold winter days when it doesn’t get much above zero degrees!

Lisa Bright June 28, 2013 - 7:58 AM

Love the fast/ pressure cook function. As a vegan I’m always forgetting to pre-soak beans so this would definitely help save my vego ‘bacon’!

Lisa Robertson June 28, 2013 - 8:33 AM

The fact it does it for me. Even working from home, I work late and kids are left waiting for dinner – not good for anyone

Jarni June 28, 2013 - 8:50 AM

Pressure cooker! Because working full time, being a mum and running a farm is like living in a pressure cooker and the quicker I can get a healthy meal on the table the better!

Bettina McIntosh June 28, 2013 - 9:09 AM

Slow Cooker, we are on a get healthy
journey and time is always an issue, would love to come home to a ready dinner!

Lady Dorothy June 28, 2013 - 9:20 AM

The fact that I could brown the meat and then slow cook it seems to good to be true! Never want that extra dirty pan!

Laura Daniels June 28, 2013 - 9:21 AM

Who could pick a function, no oven for 9 years means inventive cooking…the Maxi could clear bench space and be every appliance in one!

Seana Morris June 28, 2013 - 9:27 AM

Pressure Cooker- Mum and Dad always used one when we were kids meat and potato ready super quick. It was scary! Steam blasting out of it and hissing. They recently bought a new one and they don’t do that anymore. So maybe its time to try them out.

Erin Beesley June 28, 2013 - 9:40 AM

I love the ‘Brown’ section. I never brown meat as it will use another pan and take more time. Now its too easy! Love It!

Peta June 28, 2013 - 10:03 AM

The Sauté/Browner makes it a one pan appliance. If it could do the rest of the housework I would spend more time with family!

Judy Trodd June 28, 2013 - 10:20 AM

Im a vegetarian, so ALL the functions are PERFECT for ME. The Meat Eaters will just have to buy their own! 🙂

Kelli-Anne Woodford June 28, 2013 - 10:22 AM

It’s a hard choice between the pressure cooker and slow cooker but the slow cooker just wins. Being able to put a meal on in the morning when I’ve got time and have a meal ready for me when I get home from an afternoon of running kids around is just perfect.

Bev C June 28, 2013 - 10:25 AM

The fact that there is less washing up, won me.

Tammy H June 28, 2013 - 10:46 AM

Family of 4 , 2 bed unit = tiny kitchen, limited space is a daily challenge.
ALL MAXI functions could make cooking more enjoyable and less cluttered!

Theresa June 28, 2013 - 11:32 AM

With newborn and three year old, love all functons, too hard to choose one! Need cupboard space, love to get rid of a few appliances!

Lynnette June 28, 2013 - 11:47 AM

When you live in a bus and storage space is premium, an appliance that can multitask is the one for us!

kate lord June 28, 2013 - 12:11 PM

Would have to be the slow cooking function. put on in the morning and ready when I come home, no more running around in the afternoon trying to get dinner organised!

Lorna M June 28, 2013 - 12:21 PM

All the functions would work well in my family as everyone cooks 🙂

Judestar44 June 28, 2013 - 12:24 PM

Slow cooking for when I’m in late, Pressure cooking when there’s not time to wait, These functions most rate, But all others are equally great !

sonya June 28, 2013 - 12:30 PM

The slow cooker functionality.

Jody scott-greer June 28, 2013 - 12:35 PM

Slow cooking! I have 6 young kids. At least dinner is ready when I am exhausted after a day running around!

Jessie Hay June 28, 2013 - 12:43 PM

With a maxi family of 8 kids at home we need a Maxi Multi cooker- and a 6 litre capacity would be fantastic!

Di June 28, 2013 - 12:48 PM

Pressure Cooker, delicious meals in an instant! Like they’ve been slowly stewing on the stove all day. Just the thing with electricity bills on the rise too, why slow cook for 8 hours, when you can get it done just as well in 20 minutes!?

althea June 28, 2013 - 12:50 PM

we live in a hotel with no kitchen, so have to cook outside on a very small balcony. having it as an all-in-one would save so much room, and because i work shiftwork, the slow cooker and/ or pressure cooker would just make our lives so much easier.

Berty June 28, 2013 - 12:50 PM

Rice Cooker / Steamer – it makes it easy to eat healthily, no more excuses.

Adele Terrell June 28, 2013 - 12:53 PM

The most practical function for our family would be the Slow Cook and steamer then one machine and one clean would be bliss.

Nikki June 28, 2013 - 12:55 PM

The Sauté / Browner makes all the difference…less pans means less washing up, which means more volunteers for clean-up…maybe!

huiny June 28, 2013 - 2:16 PM

Pressure cooker. Juggling working full time and 2 school kids, it definitely take the cooking time less, means more quality time with our loved one.

Michelle June 28, 2013 - 2:20 PM

Soup maker, as we all love soup on these cold winter nights.

Angela Fiorenza June 28, 2013 - 2:34 PM

When I’m lacking the inspiration, to create a meal that’s a sensation, pressure cooker ignites my imagination to create a meal that’s a sensation.

Tiffany June 28, 2013 - 3:05 PM

slowcooker. love it. and that it can saute the meat first is brilliant!

Laura June 28, 2013 - 3:10 PM

The most practical function for my family would be all of them. The fact that I would have room in my tiny kitchen for 6 apppliances! That would be a first.

Ariani June 28, 2013 - 3:23 PM

Slow cooker because I can prepare in the morning and when the family come home, I can take care of them without worrying about dinner.

Carrie June 28, 2013 - 3:39 PM

The pressure cooker bc I feel like I cook under pressure every night!

Bettina June 28, 2013 - 3:55 PM

It’s got to be the ‘put dinner on and walk away’ function (probably not it’s real name ;-).

Carmen June 28, 2013 - 4:04 PM

The slow cooker, great to prepare dinner early!

Beck Star June 28, 2013 - 4:06 PM

It would be the browing function. So I dont have to brown the meat in a fry pan and then put it in the slow cooker. That would make less work for me in the kitchen and more family time.

vicki jackson June 28, 2013 - 4:06 PM

slow cooker would be for me… the lovely smell of cooking while I am not.. the whole house would smell nice. and I wouldn’t be stressed out worrying that anything is burning.

Lisa Balshaw June 28, 2013 - 4:07 PM

pressure cooker i would say to get things done in a hurry

sandy June 28, 2013 - 4:08 PM

chip cooker would be nice, but should really use it to cook my rice.
slow cooker would come in handy, but the deep fryer would be just dandy.

Angela June 28, 2013 - 4:08 PM

Multi-functions and huge capacity! With only 1 appliance to store! Can’t get much better than that for my kitchen!

Leanne Barker-Franks June 28, 2013 - 4:10 PM

With 6 kids I would love the ability to put on the dinner in the morning on the slow cooker setting and it be ready for us at night 🙂

Mel B June 28, 2013 - 4:13 PM

rice cooker steamer function as we live on rice and vegies over the week so the other functions would be a bonus and space saver!

bev thomass June 28, 2013 - 4:19 PM

slow cooker so I can make enough meals for a week or pressure cooker if i forget to take the meat out for cooking

dani mccreery June 28, 2013 - 4:20 PM

The pressure cooker – meals in minutes = no stress!!

Liz A June 28, 2013 - 4:21 PM

That would be the rice cooking function – I always mess it up any other way and it can co-cook with the main meal!

Shannon June 28, 2013 - 4:26 PM

Slow cooker for days I’m organized and Pressure cooker on days at 5pm Hubby says by the way MUM’s coming to dinner TONIGHT!

Shannon June 28, 2013 - 4:33 PM

With baby #3 on the way, I need all the help I can get with dinner prep! Would be lovely to choose whether to slow cook or pressure cook if I run out of time, without using a million appliances!!

Bianca June 28, 2013 - 4:35 PM

Slow cooker! For those night when the kids have sporting activities, to come home to a warm filling slow cooked meal is bliss!

Alana Hunter June 28, 2013 - 4:36 PM

Slow cooker would be fantastic on the days I work. I could put it on in the morning and when I got home with the family of an evening dinner would be ready. Very helpful for an on call casual worker

Kristy Philpott June 28, 2013 - 4:36 PM

The pressure cooker, as it would allow me to cook a nice, healthy, hearty meal when I get home late from work.

Anne McCulloch June 28, 2013 - 4:37 PM

One pot cooking! No one in this house likes washing up!

Amanda Hemetsberger June 28, 2013 - 4:47 PM

The slow cooker for making casseroles with meat so tender it melts in your mouth

Yvonne Simpson June 28, 2013 - 4:51 PM

Love the fact you can brown and slow cook in the same pot. Less handling of pots and pans with a great outcome at the end means happy eaters and happy mum!

Kate Bullock June 28, 2013 - 4:53 PM

Having twin toddlers the slow cooker is perfect as I can prepare dinner while they are enjoying lunch and it’ll be ready for us

Mindo Koerber June 28, 2013 - 4:54 PM

good idea for multitasking Mum that need extra hands … 🙂

Amanda Bennett June 28, 2013 - 4:55 PM

A seasonal situation – in summer the rice cooker to accompany nice light stir-fries, but the slow cooker for lovely warming braises and stews in winter

viviennedobin June 28, 2013 - 5:18 PM

The Slow Cooker as I can use cheaper cuts of meat to create the most awesome tasting dishes, my family will get gourmet meals nightly.

Stephanie Veljanovska June 28, 2013 - 5:34 PM

The Slow Cooker to make Delicious and Healthy Meals for my Family without Standing over the Stove.

Marilyn Craig June 28, 2013 - 5:55 PM

I like all the options, sounds good for cooking lots of different meals for my daughter, who is lactose and gluten intolerant.

Maxine Kitchen June 28, 2013 - 6:31 PM

Saves time and money, but creates yummy meals. But with a name like mine I should win. hehe

Joanna Clark June 28, 2013 - 6:40 PM

I’d love the pressure cooker feature to make melt in the mouth stews! Perfect for the family!

Misty Hearne June 28, 2013 - 6:41 PM

It would be the pressure cooker! I would love one of these MAXI 6 in 1 cookers so I could be a MAXI-mum in the kitchen!

Megan June 28, 2013 - 7:00 PM

With a new baby the pressure cooker would be such a time saver for meals!

kerrie June 28, 2013 - 8:05 PM

How can I pick just 1 feature?? The versatility of the MAXI Kitchen appliance is superb. Different meal each night, same appliance:)

Corrie Pierce June 28, 2013 - 8:29 PM

Soup maker, its perfect for those cold winter lunches! Hmmm pumpkin or potato & bacon, vegetable or chicken and corn, the possibilities are endless!

Karina Wong June 28, 2013 - 10:10 PM

The fast/pressure cooker cooks in minutes – perfect for people who want to spend more time on the internet than cooking for their husband.

Cath Mongol June 28, 2013 - 11:18 PM

The time saving! Fast cooking time and no need to clear and wash lots of pots/pans – BLISS!!

Aileen June 28, 2013 - 11:34 PM

Takes up less room in the cupboard when stored when not in use. Because an uncluttered kitchen is an efficient kitchen.

Liza Glick June 29, 2013 - 5:32 AM

That you can do so many things with one piece of equipment which is great for my small kitchen!

Merryl Chantrell June 29, 2013 - 5:52 AM

I would use the MAXI as a pressure cooker because unlike the old time pressure cookers the results should not end up on the ceiling.

Patty June 29, 2013 - 5:58 AM

I could use this for all of its functions! I love that they are all in one appliance! I think the slow cooker mode would be used most by my family though. I have a large family and we use our current one often!

Lyn Richards June 29, 2013 - 9:27 AM

No extra pans for “browning” ohh that’s for me……oh what a chef my family will see and how special will I be!

Elizabeth June 29, 2013 - 10:48 AM

The ON
button. I have machines that take up space in my kitchen but this would mean I
have 1 machine for so many uses

Kay Dekker June 29, 2013 - 11:24 AM

A machine that in minutes cooks a meal
I cannot describe the love I feel
Pinch me now is this for real?

marypreston June 29, 2013 - 12:34 PM

You had me at “one pot”. Less is always better when it comes to cooking and cleaning in the kitchen.

Claire Thrower June 29, 2013 - 1:20 PM

The Soup maker, we love soup especially in winter could have continually supply ready quickly would be great.

Sue June 29, 2013 - 2:37 PM

Fast/ Pressure Cooker. I am most certainly a fast cooker, and I can’t take the pressure!!! I need this machine 😀

Patty June 29, 2013 - 2:50 PM

Rice cooker! My husband is Japanese and my three boys have the need to eat rice 3 meals a day so we always have the rice cooker going

Marita Beard June 29, 2013 - 5:10 PM

The automatic keep warm setting as we eat at different times on many days due to after school activities and husbands work schedule.

Teresa June 29, 2013 - 7:34 PM

The soup maker…perfect at this time of year

Natalie Hibbert June 30, 2013 - 12:44 AM

I don’t want this to sound like a sob story but I have 51/2 year old twins I am raising on my own. My family are not around, their dad is not around, and I am only just keeping
my head above water.
My twins arrived three months early at 27 weeks and we’re just beginning to come across a few problems.

My son has been in hospital this week having surgery on his trachea, adenoids, teeth and jaw to help him breathe and my daughter is miserable with chicken-pox.

We have to give my son a special diet from now on and I am the worst cook in the work. This appliance sounds fantastic that I think even I could manage it with my severe lack of cooking skills.

TanyaCrerar June 30, 2013 - 9:33 AM

A machine that can multi-task like a parent? Choosing a favourite function is like choosing a favourite child- it can’t be done!

Liz B June 30, 2013 - 11:34 AM

Oh my goodness the browner – that would save me so much effort. While I love my slow cooker, having to brown the meat etc before bunging it all in seems to be the opposite of “effortless”. I would love a slow cooker that does it for me!

AmberB June 30, 2013 - 4:06 PM

The Slow Cooker. Meat dishes that are cooked in slow cookers always end up so tender and juicy. The absolute best casserole ever!

houndsy June 30, 2013 - 4:39 PM

The deep fryer as the boys in my house (unfortunately for me always dieting!) love fried foods. So they can have their fry up and i can use it for healthier food for myself 🙂

Angela June 30, 2013 - 5:26 PM

The slow cooker feature with the browning option.With a new baby, a nine year old, hubby and me, we need simple cooking!

Mumtomany June 30, 2013 - 5:28 PM

Every Function is fantastic but having a slowcooker and pressure cooker in one is great!

Helga Grenkowitz June 30, 2013 - 8:45 PM

I love the pressure cooker function since it saves lots of energy and time.

Ei Nyo June 30, 2013 - 8:47 PM

For an Asian family, rice is the essence of every meal. No meal is complete without rice. We eat everything with rice; KFC with rice, soup with rice and pie with rice (instead of peas)! So yes, rice cooker function is the most practical one for this crazy rice-loving family. Rice is our reason to rise every morning.

kerry santillo June 30, 2013 - 9:09 PM

The programmable setting, returning later to a meal that’s ready to serve.:)

Tracy Andreatta June 30, 2013 - 9:53 PM

Slow cooker , I love how I can start dinner earlier in the day, forget about it & 6 hours later its ready .

Kirsten Krohn June 30, 2013 - 10:10 PM

Slow cooker. It saves the end of day rush and stress for our family. The browner is also a plus cause I can brown my meat before slow cooking it and it saves washing up a fry pan!

rpolly June 30, 2013 - 10:15 PM

The soup maker! I would no longer have to watch a simmering pot, and clean up the messy soup splatters all over my stovetop!

Paulina June 30, 2013 - 10:34 PM

Rice cooker I have never had one but my husband and I disagree about the “correct” way to cook rice, it would save “discusions”

jody buhagiar June 30, 2013 - 10:39 PM

The 6 litre capacity is so welcoming. With a large family its quick, easy, less mess and its cooking even when Im not home .

scotthammond June 30, 2013 - 10:54 PM

Slow cooker most practical for us, makes dinner with minimal fuss. Saves time, makes cheap meat taste devine. But what’s best, is dinner without mess!

Debbie Jones July 1, 2013 - 8:30 AM

the slow cooker , it is especially wonderful for making soups….

Cecilia Bell July 1, 2013 - 1:13 PM

Our life is not always as it seems,
life can burst at the seams,
then pressure cookers save the day,
thankfully Tefal goes both ways!

Cynthia Chesters July 1, 2013 - 1:32 PM

The slow cooker would be perfect for my husband’s Lamb Shanks. I get embarrassed because he cooks more than me and I’m a cooking teacher!!!

JolieC July 1, 2013 - 2:20 PM

Pressure cooker – I love my slow cooker but the frantic 6pm scramble because I forgot to set it that morning would be nice to avoid!

Jodie Tawn July 1, 2013 - 5:06 PM

The slow cooker function would be wonderful, to be organised for dinner at the start of the day without the dinnertime rush to get cooking!

Renee July 2, 2013 - 7:37 AM

To hard to pick just one practical function. Looks like an all in one wonder pot. Less WASHING up. Yippppeeee..

Wendy Baz Townsend July 2, 2013 - 11:13 AM

The ‘keep warm’ function is perfect for our family as self employed Husband is rarely home in time to join us for dinner.

Juzza July 2, 2013 - 11:28 AM

Sear and then choose a cooking option! One pot cooking for busy mums 🙂

Jodi Spall July 2, 2013 - 11:34 AM

Hard to choose just one, but the pressure cooker sounds great… makes the meat melt in your mouth without the added time pressure

Rachel Kriss-Newell July 2, 2013 - 9:24 PM

Digital timer allowing our girls to excitedly countdown until serving a succulent slow-cooked meal. Then reality hits, Mr9 storms into the kitchen, “Er, what stinks”.

Tash July 2, 2013 - 10:24 PM

The 6L capacity for sure, for all the love I put into my cooking!

Jo-Anne Wizz July 3, 2013 - 8:10 PM

U.N.I.Q.U.E for being M.U.L.T.I F.U.N.C.T.I.O.N.A.L
– Less washing up
– Less cleaning up
– Only ONE item in Cupboard
Especially fantastic for Large Family gatherings
Would LLLOOOVVVEEE in my home. :

Wendy July 5, 2013 - 9:48 AM

Definately the slow cooker – Now i can get rid of my husband i wont need him anymore 🙂

Bonnie Claassen July 5, 2013 - 9:54 AM

Slow Cooker function.
Although it will cook the food slowly, it makes preparing, cooking & cleaning fast & efficient for me

Melanie Sayer July 5, 2013 - 10:37 AM

Slow Cooker as our household lives on these. I am about to start my final teaching prac for univeristy so it would be a godsend.

Rebecca Pregnell July 5, 2013 - 10:47 AM

Pressure cooker would be so handy to cook quick, tasty, nutritional meals

Sharon July 5, 2013 - 10:51 AM

6 in 1 Cooker would be a godsend to my family as my husband and i work fulltime than we have football training 4 nights a week so i have a house full of hungry testosterone and the old saying is feed the man meat… they love moroccan lamb shanks this cooker would cook it to perfection. your consideration for my family would be greatly appreciated.

Rachael July 5, 2013 - 10:57 AM

Soup, deep-fry, or pressure cook,
What better way to cook your chook!
In the Maxi, the work is done,
leaves me time to have some fun!

Nadia July 5, 2013 - 11:19 AM

I wish i lived in australia for this!

Fiona July 5, 2013 - 11:22 AM

For our family of 12 children the rice cooker steamer would be great as all my friends rave about them and I don’t have one .

Lyn Head July 5, 2013 - 12:01 PM

One appliance that does SOOOOOOOOO much…WOW!
But I think the pressure cooker may be used the most, or the slow cooker???

Roslyn Woodhouse July 5, 2013 - 12:37 PM

The pressure cooker, because I always meal plan, but by the time I look at the clock, I realise it’s too late!

Veronica July 5, 2013 - 1:21 PM

I have a very small kitchen even for a unit! So with very
little cupboard space, a 6 in 1 multi cooker is perfect!

o2bing July 5, 2013 - 2:20 PM

With my kids now doing after school sports, a slow cooker function is a godsend. Knowing they will be tired, hungry and demanding the second we get home, having a meal only minutes away is fantastic. However, my old faithful needs to be retired. This would be the perfect replacement. 😉

Lisa Price July 5, 2013 - 3:31 PM

Perfect sanity saver. The pressure cooker would be fantastic. Put everything in and dinner is served in a jiffy, all ready for hungry little Mr 5 and Mr 4 who are eating more food than their dad at the moment! Us Mums’ need all the help we can get to keep on top of things and this may savour some time for us to put our feet up for a little which we all deserve.

Jillian Ives July 5, 2013 - 5:11 PM

I’d love the pressure cooker part as I’m a high school teacher and do a lot of planning, preparation & marking after work. This would help me on those nights where I am flat out. It looks easy to use so my husband could use it too.

Fiona July 5, 2013 - 6:04 PM

Non stick removable inner bowl – has to help with my know cooking fails, giving me confidence that any mess is easy to clean. A masterchef this could help me be!!

Elaine July 5, 2013 - 6:32 PM

So hard to decide as all the functions are so good.

The sauté/browner function would be great as you would be able to prepare so many ingredients to be used in the other functions.

Kirsten Benhiam July 5, 2013 - 8:28 PM

The Browner is the most practical as I love slow cooking and browning before cooking adds real flavour but time and mess means skipping it.

A.Baharin July 5, 2013 - 8:33 PM

With a family of eight plus numerous entertaining of friends and families, a pressure cooker function would definitely be ahead of the list for quick meals preparation. The additional features of slow cooking, searing, deep frying, steaming, soup and rice making would just complements and make cooking an enjoyable art/project rather than a chore. By the way, would baking be a feature too as that will really make it an icing on the cake, so to say.

staceyshailer July 5, 2013 - 8:43 PM

It’s a toss-up between the 6L capacity (I can fit more in!) and the slow-cooker function, I love a slow-cooked roast…

Sam Cheney July 5, 2013 - 9:36 PM

Does one of the functions in the above photo say Weep Karming? Whilst I think it’s maybe meant to say Keep Warming, any appliance that has some kind of function to karm (calm) weeping or anything else at mealtimes will win me over! LOL

Karen Edwards July 5, 2013 - 10:31 PM

I like that one appliance does the job of a few appliances so dinner will be done in a lot less time you just set and forget YUM!!

Alexis Anderson July 6, 2013 - 10:04 AM

Pressure cooker seems to be it. Watching master chef and their inventions. Would love to try it out, as arrival of number 3 is soon which will turn life on its head!

Yvette Lawton July 6, 2013 - 10:06 AM

With 3 gorgeous kids under 3yrs old all of these settings in 1 appliance would be amazing. Maxi kitchen appliances have created your best friend in the kitchen.

Morena Dobrowolski July 6, 2013 - 10:08 AM

Slow cooking for the days I’m organised, pressure cooking for the days I’m not – love the versatility 🙂

Gemma Moore July 6, 2013 - 10:08 AM

Maxi Maxi Maxi –
would you like to come and live with me? More cooking and less cleaning it’s
the way it’s meant to be.

Andrea July 6, 2013 - 10:09 AM

how to make my life easier and look like a genius. 1 grab one of these. 2 don’t tell hubby. 3. use it to cook fab food 4. dinner on table and i look awesome! lol

Deb Henry July 6, 2013 - 10:10 AM

The pressure cooker is a blessing. What was once dangerous, Maxi makes safe and easy to use and easy to clean up!

paula galvin July 6, 2013 - 10:10 AM

Rice cooker function as i cant cook it right and my family of 5 love rice- but just not when i cook it.

Stefanie Harvey July 6, 2013 - 10:22 AM

Maxi Maxi Maximise our lifestyle!

Krystle July 6, 2013 - 10:23 AM

With two Autistic kids with extremely limited diets the deep fryer would be amazing I could make them chips, one of their favourites.

Tam July 6, 2013 - 10:25 AM

Slow cooker! I’ve never had one and with three busy boys it’s something I often miss. Hubby would LOVE the deep fryer though!!

Chook July 6, 2013 - 10:25 AM

I like the way it looks modern. It would look good sitting on my bench with so many functions, it would be an appliance that would be used every day, no matter what I am cooking 🙂

Tam Bell July 6, 2013 - 10:27 AM

The pressure cooker! When I’m cooking I’m always under pressure so my cooking might as well be too, and it might even improve the taste

Sharlene Oxenbridge July 6, 2013 - 10:33 AM

Don’t think there is any one thing…. I would use all…. With a disabled child with limited diet, this would make life so much easier 🙂

Selena79 July 6, 2013 - 10:34 AM

Sear/browning/slow cooking , drives me nuts browning in a pan then to the slow cooker. Fry in the same product too, GENIUS

Angela July 6, 2013 - 10:34 AM

The ‘Multi’ function!! I need to replace my slow cooker as it broke when I moved and want a pressure cooker and deep fryer

Cheryl July 6, 2013 - 10:38 AM

Each and everyone of them. This machine would be amazing.

Eva Lewis July 6, 2013 - 10:39 AM

The song by Queen reflects me perfectly “Under pressure, Under Pressure, Pressure” hence a Pressure Cooker would suit me to a T!

Jacqui O'Brien July 6, 2013 - 10:41 AM

Slow Cooker. It is the best chance of my family actually getting fed! I am far more sane in the morning to prepare a meal.

Chantelle July 6, 2013 - 10:41 AM

The slow cooker. About to head back to work after 2nd baby as well as starting my Masters in Education. Need every bit of help!

Heather July 6, 2013 - 11:00 AM

The sear and slow cooker!! With a little one running around I won’t need to stand by the cooker all the time.

Bec Cronin July 6, 2013 - 11:09 AM

Slow Cooker as my boys hate chewy meat, I would love more room in my cupboards & less dirty dishes too!

Leanne Love July 6, 2013 - 1:21 PM

Steamer/Rice Cooker. Is there anything better than freshly steamed vegies and hot fluffy rice mmmmmmm

Lisa July 6, 2013 - 1:35 PM

I think the sauté and then slow cook in the same pot has to be the best time saving feature and the most practical, no more multiple pots and more dishes than necessary 🙂

Hayley Mahy July 6, 2013 - 2:53 PM

Take the pressure down!! Healthy meals fast for hungry twin boys, pressure cooker option is the way to go for us!

MrsLowe July 6, 2013 - 3:01 PM

Why pick one?? I could really use the lot

Grace Crawford July 6, 2013 - 3:02 PM

Saute/Browner! I always do this with veggies, fish and meat. Easier cooking means more time for myself, husband and baby and a happier mummy.

Aileen July 6, 2013 - 3:09 PM

Deep Fryer as sometimes, just sometimes, even a heathy eating family needs to have something deep fried. 🙂

Elizabeth Lindbeck July 6, 2013 - 4:22 PM

I’m in need of a new steamer as I just nearly set my house on fire with the old one… plus ALL the extras would make life am.a.z.ing!

Kerry Peters July 6, 2013 - 5:40 PM

pressure cooker as i am always stretched for time

Pathma Ramalingam July 6, 2013 - 9:32 PM

It has to be the rice cooker – being Asians – rice is our staple meal 🙂

keona July 7, 2013 - 9:19 AM

slow cooker, as a single mum with 3 young boys making heathy meals and still being able to do the days chores and kids activies!! awesome!!

Karen July 7, 2013 - 10:05 AM

Have a slow cooker, pressure cooker, steamer, rice cooker already. The deep fryer would excite my household of boys the most!

Chef Chelle July 7, 2013 - 12:27 PM

Feeding 3 hungry shift workers, the ability to cook everything in the multicooker with a timer and pressure/fast function would be amazing!

Charlotte July 7, 2013 - 3:31 PM

The rice/steam cooker. Rice is about the only thing everyone in our family of fussy eaters loves, it’s the basis of so many great meals and we cook endless batches of rice and vegetables for our much-loved rescue dogs. There would be no end to the uses for this amazing appliance! Thanks for the chance, fingers crossed!!!

Sarah July 7, 2013 - 4:41 PM

I would be so excited to win this, we have a tiny kitchen and no more space for appliances, if I won this I could get rid of the slow cooker and rice cooker and gain a fryer and Pressure cooker!

K-Lee July 7, 2013 - 6:47 PM

I’ve never had/used a slow cooker or pressure cooker, and with a little one on the way I think it would definitely make life easier to cook for the family in the months to come!

Sharon July 7, 2013 - 8:31 PM

Pots, Pans, spread across my kitchen bench

Every single mealtime, its such a mess

Just one appliance, cooks my dinner?

A lifesaver, timesaver….a winner!!

JBMarigold July 7, 2013 - 10:29 PM

Time’s short, kids require feeding,
Planning helps. Smart cooking I’m needing.
Load the SLOW COOKER, jobs to do…
Simmers all day, dinner’s perfect! WOO-HOO!!!

Yvett July 8, 2013 - 8:15 AM

This do it all appliance wonder couldn’t be easier for my cook-a-phobe and every excuse under the sun, Hubby. A night off from cooking may be in sight, yet.

Jane Cadwgan July 8, 2013 - 11:48 AM

Its the only thing in the house I can set and FORGET, and it will do it.

Shannen July 8, 2013 - 1:09 PM

I LOVE soup so this function would certainly get a workout at our place!

Berliany July 8, 2013 - 3:42 PM

Def slow cooker with little kids so much easier to prepare dinner.

Martine July 8, 2013 - 5:48 PM

Saute/Browner because I always skip this step to save dishes.

Rebekah Ballingall July 8, 2013 - 9:33 PM

I would brown the meet to seal in the flavour, slow cook the meat to make it tender, then deep fry to make it crunchy. I’m already half way there to a perfect MAXi meal

cal July 9, 2013 - 12:08 AM

Music lessons, basketball, school, work and gymn… with the soupmaker “eat when you need to”‘s a synch!

scattley July 9, 2013 - 10:40 AM

Slow Cooker – Im not energenic in the evening so setting up dinner when just woken up and then going off to work with dinner already being sorted – is ideal for me

Taj July 10, 2013 - 11:36 AM

The rice cooker!

While I experiment with tasty new recipes for my family, rice will be steaming away as a back-up meal for fussy Mr4.

Suzy July 10, 2013 - 5:54 PM

I love that it keeps food warm for a long time, and that it cooks it fast too, because my family gets impatient with me

Addie July 11, 2013 - 11:35 AM

Miracle appliance, extremely intelligent

All features brilliant, leading to food so elegant

X-actly EVERYTHING a family needs

Impressed by increased ease and speed

Gail July 11, 2013 - 11:36 AM

Pressures of work, pressures raising teens,
Pressure getting the housework done, no time for magazines.
The pressure cooker function takes the pressure off all routines.

lennicecummings July 11, 2013 - 11:37 AM

The slow cooker because it great for busy family chuck everything and its ready by dinner time

Jasmine N July 11, 2013 - 8:14 PM

I looooooooooooooooove the slooooooooooooooooow coooooooooooooooooker beeeeecause I can dooooooooooooooo many other choooooooooooores while dinner coooooooooooooooooks itself

Mel July 12, 2013 - 9:39 AM

The best function is the searing of the meat! It takes out that extra frying pan. Fantastic.

Natalie July 12, 2013 - 9:52 AM

With 5 children the youngest being 15 weeks old the slow cooker function is fantastic i can provide healthy filling low cost dinners for the whole family. Especially like everyone else with other commitments after school etc it saves alot of time.

sarahc46 July 12, 2013 - 10:01 AM

The rice cooker, i cant make rice in a saucepan, i make porridge or a turn the saucepan black. This multi cooker is great would love to win, thanks

Renae D July 12, 2013 - 10:10 AM

All of the functions are great as I can put on dinner and continue to clean up after everyone else so that my husband can’t accuse me of sitting on my lazy a** all day doing nothing.

Melissa Bishop July 12, 2013 - 10:52 AM

Cooking fast and cooking slow
Fried with rice or soup to go
Maxi meals for my family
Easy cooking done beautifully

Sascha July 12, 2013 - 11:05 AM

The fast pressure cook option would be fantastic. You know that last minute rush where you decide you want to make something and it’s 6pm..

kristy wilson July 12, 2013 - 11:05 AM

I would love to win the maxi multi cooker so i could brown my my meat and onions then slow cook, to make a beautiful beef and red wine stew. Thanks

Wendy Wyatt July 12, 2013 - 11:06 AM

Presure cooker would be the most usefull for those times i forget to put the food in the slow cooker i can instead presure cook it!

Karen July 12, 2013 - 11:08 AM

Even my husband could use it!!! Perfect for giving the instructions over the phone re dinner

Manuela Palatsides July 12, 2013 - 11:15 AM

The slow cooker function will help me be an organised housewife. With after school activities most nights, this is perfect for us.

Alicia L July 12, 2013 - 11:15 AM

Steamer! My hubby always seems to forget he has water
boiling for steaming veges… burnt tasting fresh steamed vegetables aren’t really
for me!

Kristi July 12, 2013 - 11:16 AM

Pressure cooker for me – never enough hours in the day! I try to be organised but then forget at the last minute to defrost, slow cook etc.

Helise Manson July 12, 2013 - 11:17 AM

The best part of this is being able to brown the meat! takes off so much time and i love how you can use it for so many diffrent meals, i need one of these!

Cathy Donnelly July 12, 2013 - 11:20 AM

A Maxi Cooker for me!
would fill our home with glee.
No more takeaways for us,
just curries, soups, and slow cooking with NO FUSS!.

Elissa July 12, 2013 - 11:22 AM

Love that you can brown the meat and then use it as a slow cooker! Totally an all in one!

Cristina Crowd July 12, 2013 - 11:24 AM

The pressure cooker would definitely help me out in our busy family. Fast and nutritious – unreal!

Kirsty July 12, 2013 - 11:25 AM

My family would
Absolutely love me to try
eXiting new meals.
It would be awesome to have one appliance that does it all!

Cathy July 12, 2013 - 11:32 AM

One appliance that does so many things would be absolutely great but best of all the slow cooker function. As a single mum of 2 and caring for my elderly mother it would mean delicious low cost meals with no last minute rush!

Sarah Williamson July 12, 2013 - 11:33 AM

As a full time working single mum, i love the slow cooker and pressure cooker functions, not having to spend hours cooking when i get home!

DoulaJessica July 12, 2013 - 11:34 AM

It’s too hard to pick just one! The best feature is that it
will encourage everyone other than ME to cook dinner occasionally!

Petra Price July 12, 2013 - 11:59 AM

Definitely all the functions, and the fact that it is less washing up, now that’s gotta be a bonus.

KazV July 12, 2013 - 11:59 AM

Family of multi-taskers- juggling two young children, my cancer treatment, one child with a serious genetic disorder, life and everything inbetween- so love it’s multi-functionality!

Leisa Westerhof July 12, 2013 - 12:00 PM

I love my current slow cooker, but my kitchen is too small for a pressure cooker as well, so mutli purpose is the only option for me!

Mrs K July 12, 2013 - 12:02 PM

It’s a time saving, dish saving, marriage saving, sanity saving machine! Every function is impressive but the sauté feature wins – no extra pans to wash!

Megan Spinks July 12, 2013 - 12:07 PM

As the owner of a small kitchen, having all those options in one machine. is a brilliant space saving option. Love the slow cooker and pressure cooker options.

Carol Taylor July 12, 2013 - 12:16 PM

Makes cooking hearty healthy winter meals easy for our family of 7!
Ideal for a very busy household <3

Rach. July 12, 2013 - 12:26 PM

I’m most attracted to the SLOW COOKER facility. With two very active young kids I need to plan and prepare dinners early in the day

SylviaB July 12, 2013 - 12:26 PM

I look forward to trying out slow-cooking in the Multi Cooker, but the function I find most practical is its space-saving function!

Melissa Puli July 12, 2013 - 12:35 PM

Anything that can have me prepare a family meal in one pot is perfect for me and my two little humans!!! I am a terrible cook and seem to burn all my pots. I am down to one little saucer!!

Liz S. July 12, 2013 - 12:40 PM

Mornings it’s always a chore,
Prep dinner and get out the door,
Using one pot
Doing the lot,
Will make life easier I’m sure!

Nicole July 12, 2013 - 12:51 PM

I think – everything is in one appliance – one thing to clean after dinner and since I have to clean – this is my most practical function!

Jeans July 12, 2013 - 12:51 PM

The Steamer is the most practical, because my family make me steaming mad when they’re hungry, and I have to feed them 5min ago!

Krrizis July 12, 2013 - 1:01 PM

Slow cooker. I’m out of the house early in the morning, back home late at night. I need something that fits with my daily life.

Trish July 12, 2013 - 1:10 PM

Rice cooker/steamer and Digital timer with countdown – I’ve always almost burning something because I get distracted by the kids.

Hayley Tehan July 12, 2013 - 1:13 PM

Oh the rice cooker and steamer is the best! With 3 young ones and bubs on the way it a useful and quick way of whipping up healthy dinners!!

Cynthia Lin July 12, 2013 - 1:15 PM

7 people live in my family. Seems like a lot right? More people = more clutter which means that my house is always in a mess. You know, seven people is a lot to cook for. Our pantry is filled with a lot of food. *Believe me, we are one hungry family.* Not to mention all our cooking equipment. I’m telling you, we love anything multi purpose. It just saves us *my mum* the hassle of actually cleaning up afterwards. Which means more time to chow down on food.

Ps. the function we would use the most is the rice cooker. We eat rice on a daily basis.


Candice DeVille July 12, 2013 - 1:15 PM

At the moment, it would have to be the soup function. I have a dislocated jaw and can only eat through a straw, so the soups are getting a work out. Being able to set and forget would be one less stress for me to worry about.

Sally July 12, 2013 - 1:16 PM

One appliance to cook with
One appliance to clean
Healthy yummy nutritious food
Every busy mummy’s dream

Luci Callipari-Marcuzzo July 12, 2013 - 1:27 PM

The pressure cooker, I have an old fashioned version which is a life saver when you want to cook something delicious in a jiffy! The timer function also appeals to me too.

Jan @ Sprouts n Squats July 12, 2013 - 1:37 PM

Definitely the slow cooker by far. I don’t currently own a slow cooker but I would love an appliance that I can cook meals with ahead of time as well as save space. We live in a small apartment so having 6 different appliances to do different things is not at all practical for us as we don’t have the storage space to keep it all.

Deb (Two Cheeky Monkeys) July 12, 2013 - 1:38 PM

Love the saute/browning capability because I find slow cooked casseroles taste much better with meat and onions browned first, unlike in regular slow cookers!

Annsley July 12, 2013 - 2:07 PM

Winter meals call for hot, rich and saucy stews but they take too long! *SOS!* Pressure cooker to the rescue!

Jane July 12, 2013 - 2:16 PM

With a six week old baby I love my slow cooker, but don’t have enough time/hands/energy to brown the meat first!

Cameron Bean July 12, 2013 - 2:34 PM

Multi-function is the best function for us living in the smallest studio apartment, its my whole kitchen in one. (Deep fyer shhh… don’t tell wifey)

Dais July 12, 2013 - 2:43 PM

PRESSURE COOKER definitely as I’m always trying to cook meals during witching hour, so this Maxi multi cooker would certainly take the pressure off!

Tracey Hall July 12, 2013 - 2:45 PM

Small rented house equals no room for appliances, so any something that combines many in one would be so helpful, pressure cooker for quick meals.

Deb K July 12, 2013 - 2:57 PM

The 2 pressure levels
Would fit in at our house
The stresses of cooking for 6
Sometimes become too great!

Kari July 12, 2013 - 3:25 PM

Definitely the slow cooker! If I could start dinner in the morning, evenings would be so much easier 🙂

milkteaxx July 12, 2013 - 3:33 PM

i think the pressure cooker option is the best feature as everyone is so time-pressed or simply can’t be bothered after a long day at work!
and with the pressure cooker, i could definitely bring all the boys into the yard 😉 milkshakes are so last decade!

Carol TH July 12, 2013 - 4:10 PM

We’re just about to take over a farm with no house on it, just a shed. Long distance travel means that having the pressure cooker for quick, hot & nutritious meals when we arrive, & the slow cooker for hot dinners after a long day, is just what we need.

Merryl Chantrell July 12, 2013 - 4:12 PM

The removable inner bowl of the 6 in 1 Multi Cooker will make washing up easy peasy

The Plumbette July 12, 2013 - 4:20 PM

A slow cooker and pressure cooker in one appliance. Sounds like the perfect chef for my kitchen because sometimes I’m organized.. other times I’m not.

Crystal Sim July 12, 2013 - 4:41 PM

The slow cooker function would be perfect for my family. As most of us have busy lifestyles and still prefer home-cooked meal to eating out, with the 6-in-1 multicooker, we can now throw in some healthy ingredients before leaving for uni or work and come back at night to a great home-cooked meal for the whole family to enjoy.

Aly @ Breathe Gently July 12, 2013 - 4:48 PM

The slow cooker function, for sure; letting meals cook on their own while looking after a newborn sounds like a dream!

Cintia :: My Poppet July 12, 2013 - 5:54 PM

omg, this is genius! I have quite limited storage space so not having to store a slow cooker, rice cooker and pressure cooker is fantastic!

melanie whittle July 12, 2013 - 6:12 PM

limited kitchen space 6 in 1 multicooker so desirable the soup cooker would get a workout, the rice cooker would be handy no doubt!

Miss Sennnaa July 12, 2013 - 7:15 PM

Born in a Chinese family rice is definitely one of our main meals and we also love drinking soup so this would be perfect to have so many functions in one!!

-Miss Sennnaa

Lauren Anastasiou July 12, 2013 - 11:49 PM

Pressure Cooker. Most nights I’m cooking under pressure – Maxi Multi-Cooker would take pressure off me and put it on food where it belongs!

Tessa Flybaby July 13, 2013 - 8:59 AM

Slow cooker as I find there is nothing better than walking into my home after all being out and feeling so relaxed and comforted by the smell of home cooked roast , stew etc

Michelle @ The Bakeanista July 14, 2013 - 4:20 PM

I’d go pressure cooker because there’s nothing quite like
having to work overtime and then arrive home with a grumbling tummy. Dinner in
minutes please!

Sandy July 15, 2013 - 10:24 AM

Do I really have to pick just one? hmmmm ok , i really dislike needing several appliances when this machine could replace 4 machines!!!! 🙂 I need the space!

Anonymous May 18, 2014 - 2:20 PM

I use the pressure cooker function to make rissoto in 7 minutes, brown rice and lentils in 11-13 mins all my dried beans. Makes cooking quicker, tastier and more time to spend with my children:)

Katrina May 19, 2014 - 1:03 PM

always a wonderful benefit!

shahn June 20, 2014 - 2:55 PM

Love that you can saute/brown off your meat/vegies before then slow cook and leave it!! And ONE Machine, Perfect!

Tia Rae July 5, 2014 - 1:44 PM

I’d get room back in my kitchen lol, but I love slow cookers. Coming home to the smell of a yummy homecooked meal ready to go!

Melissa June 21, 2015 - 8:24 AM

Pressure cooker! As I can never be as organised as some!
Means I can make gorgeous, healthy meals on a budget, ready when needed with auto-keepwarm!

felicity June 22, 2015 - 9:28 PM

The most practical feature is the saute/browner because you have to brown and dirty another pan first,not now,less washing up,perfect.

Poornima Lakmana February 1, 2021 - 12:47 PM

First thanks for this give away.
I bought my MAXI 800 multicooker from FB market place. So no manual for me. I google looking for a manual and landed on this page 🙂 . Yesterday I cooked chicken curry using Woolies ready made pack. Recipe called for browning meat. I was not aware that I can do it in my Multi cooker {sigh!}. So iguess, Browning function and slow cooking in the same pot will be my got to. I am yet to experience more recipes 🙂 Thank you.

Katrina - The Organised Housewife February 5, 2021 - 8:58 AM

I hope you have fun experimenting with your cooker!
