A good few months ago I was gifted a beautiful looking Redmond Multicooker to “play with”. At first Mark wasn’t too impressed as any new appliance in the kitchen inevitably means less work top space; but as it ended up it actually helped us save some space 🙂
My Redmond Multicooker (RMC-M4502E ) has 34 programs – 16 automatic and 18 manual programs which enables you to cook meat, fish, poultry and seafood, vegetables, oatmeal, soup, pasta; deep fry, make yogurt and desserts, bake, and more! 3D heating helps save valuable minerals and vitamins in the food. The Redmond Multicooker features a wide temperature range from 40°C up to 160°C in handy 20°C intervals and cooking times range from 5 minutes all the way up to 12 hours in 5 minute intervals. It is perfect for making traditional meals, as well as yogurt, cottage cheese, fondue, French fries, and nuggets; it can also bake bread or cakes, prepare baby food, proof dough, pasteurize, sterilize, and more. And in this hectic modern life if you are late for dinner it will keep it warm for you for up to 24 hours 😉
Sounds good, doesn’t it?
I found this lovely introduction video which shows the cooker in its full glory.
If at this point you are wondering why you would need it… well let me explain…
Firstly, the Redmond Multicooker offers a fully automated cooking system, which means that you can simply pop your ingredients in and forget about it until it beeps 🙂 unless you are cooking a recipe which requires you to add something mid cook of course. Sometimes our busy lifestyle gets on top of us, and I bet we have all had at one time or another a cooking disaster resulting in a burnt dinner because we didn’t turn the stove off on time because we are distracted with the phone, kids or another emergency that requires immediate attention.
Secondly, due to its enclosed nature, cooking in it doesn’t present any hazard. We all know what toddles can be like… little hands go everywhere… using a multicooker means no risk of potential injuries… no hot surface to get burned on, no risk of running into the cooker with giant pot of soup or stew cooking on top.
Third, a Redmond Multicooker actually helps you to save space. Instead of a steamer, rice cooker, deep fat fryer, or a separate baby food warmer all you have is one machine, which does it all. It is an ideal all in one cooker for small kitchens. Not only does it save space, it also saves money as cooking in it is much cheaper than using an energy hungry stove or an oven, and it’s an absolute doddle to clean.
A Redmond Multicooker comes with a good range of handy accessories that include: a steam basket, deep fry basket with handle, measuring cup, serving spoon, tirpaddle, spoon/paddle holder, bowl extraction tongs and of course the main cooking bowl which has a durable non-stick coating.
We have cooked a range of dishes in our Redmond Multicooker and I would like to share with you two of my favourite.
First I want to tell you about a Fresh Mushroom Soup.
To be honest I’ve never had a mushroom soup based on fresh mushrooms before but it tastes great and the smell is simply amazing. The best part is that you can actually have this one soup served three different ways and it will taste ever so slightly different.
“Plain” just as it comes from the cooker.
With added cream, which makes it more mellow and creamy (surprise, surprise).
With or without the added cream but blended into a silky smooth creamed soup (I am sorry no picture of this one).
The second recipe I would like to share with you is for a Banana Nut Cake. We were a bit sceptical when it comes to baking in our multicooker, but just have a look at this cake… I am not sure I would be able to get a bake like this in my traditional oven to be honest.
Baking in a Redmond Multicooker sounds a bit tricky… This is due in part because mid way through the bake you have to flip the cake over. I was terrified the first time we tried it. I simply thought that my cake was going to fell apart… but it didn’t…
… actually the whole turning process was extremely easy and straightforward: use tongs to remove bowl; put a large plate on top of the bowl, turn cooking bowl upside down allowing your cake to fall onto the plate and then simple slide the cake back into cooking bowl, the whole action took less than 30 seconds… it sounds much more complicated than it actually is.
Redmond Multicooker RMC-M4502E is priced at £139.90 and it can be purchased from their website at Multicooker.com. This is a mid range multicooker; their basic model starts from just £69 and goes up to £184.90 which will give you a pressure multicooker.
I really like my multicooker 🙂
