I have been trying out my Sage Multi cooker now for about a month and I LOVE it. I already loved my slow cooker and you can find tons of recipes on this blog including some of our favourites here

But this multi cooker really takes the biscuit. It has different settings which allow you to do so much more.
Any seasoned slow cooker user will know that for an even better taste it pays to brown your meat, to cook your onions and to prepare certain parts in a frying pan before placing in the slow cooker for cooking. Well the Sage Multi cooker can do that for you!
It has an incredibly genius button called sautè/sear … I have no frying pans to wash up now as I sautè my onions, celery, garlic, add my meat and brown that get everything ready and THEN click on to slow cook low or high depending on the time I have and the recipe I’m using.
Then there’s a button for risotto, I ADORE risotto, husband doesn’t, so I’m waiting for him to go out so I can start cooking some delicious risotto recipes for you, one coming next week and I can’t wait to see if it works as well as the traditional watch and stir method I learnt in Italy and have used until now.
Then there’s a steam button, ever so handy for cooking vegetables, I tried with broccoli and beans and they cooked beautifully, just a nice bite to them and of course you retain all the nutrients by steaming so #winwin on the 5 a day.
I have cooked a ragù sauce for pasta using the slow cooking settings and it is superb. Ask any Italian how to cook a ragù sauce and they will tell you it needs to cook slowly for a long time, the Sage Multi cooker does that for you and in the 5 hours cooking all the different tastes are drawn out and mingled into a mind blowing taste bud ecstacy.
This baby is worth around £100 and it does not deserve to sit in a cupboard forgotten, you can use it daily and it is very economical to run.
