We compiled our ranking based on the popularity of Polaris 2022 multicookers among consumers. The more expensive the kitchen appliance, the more various additional functions are presented there, so we started with the most budgetary multicooker, from simple to complex – it’s easier to get acquainted with the product and make a comparison. Especially such a review will be needed for those who are not yet familiar with the multicooker in principle.
Features of multicookers
In order not to wonder how a multicooker differs from a double boiler and a pressure cooker, we will immediately define some options that are typical for all multicookers.
- One of the unique features is “delayed start”. Almost all users in the reviews emphasize the convenience of cooking: just lay the products, select the program and specify the desired start time.
- The “multi-cook” option is the ability to independently set the time and temperature of cooking.
- The multicooker comes standard with a steaming sieve, plastic spoons, a measuring cup and a recipe book.
- Bowls in multicookers can be 3, 4 and 5 liters. It should be borne in mind that you will never cook the volume declared in the bowl – it’s just physically not worth filling the bowl to the brim – the contents will splash out and fall on the heating element, which will lead to damage. In a 3 liter bowl, the volume of food will be 2.5-2.7 liters – this is about 5 servings.
Positioned as a mobile kitchen appliance that is easy to take with you on vacation, to the hospital, office.

New generation multicookers
In expensive models, an ear for spoons is provided on the body, the so-called “boat holder”. It is very difficult to classify this life hack as useful: spoons often fall when you open the appliance, and if you stir the dish and put a ladle in this ear, the rest of the broth or sauce will simply flow down onto the handle and into the ear itself.
