Why Do I Need The KitchenAid Multi-Cooker?

If you love cooking and value your time, then the KitchenAid Multi-Cooker is perfect for you. You save space in your kitchen because of its multiple uses. Also, you save a lot of time cooking because it cooks food faster. And you get to free up time!
All you have to do is a bit of setting up, and you can leave it while it cooks for you.

What Does The KitchenAid Multi-Cooker Do?

Now that we know about the product, it's time to look at its performance.

Tests show that the KitchenAid Multi-cooker worked quite well on various recipes for multi-cookers with stir tower. From roasted chicken, cooked ham, and caramelized onions, it delivered!

The KitchenAid Multi-cooker is flexible and straightforward to use, however, it can get a little noisy when cooking at a higher speed.
You'd only want to use it also for smaller portions of cooking.

We found out that it reaches 110℉ for yogurt settings. With manual settings, you can heat it from 165℉ to 450℉. Also, The Stir Tower sometimes doesn't do its job correctly. The ingredients sometimes slid along the bottom of the pot. Additionally, if you use the side-scraper blade, it sometimes worsens stirring for large portions.

Warranty

The KitchenAid Slow Cooker has a 1-year full warranty upon the date of your purchase. It covers replacement parts and repair labor costs. If you want to read more about it, you can read the warranty on their website (PDF).
