Rated 5 out of 5 by Catherine Like an extra pair of hands in the kitchen
I love this appliance. It means I can go out for a walk, or attend to my family while the bolognaise or curry is stirring away. I think it would make a fabulous present for a new mum - bath the kids while dinner looks after it's self!

The stirring action allows you to make risotto which is usually very time consuming. I actually sold though as I found I didn't use very often.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Excellent auto-stirring pot, but sorry, lack of non-stick coating !!!
This home cooker has outstanding quality, but absence of non-stick coating make it totally inappropriate to any frying cooking activity!
Most soups or skews should be browned (saute) before adding a water !!!
Why not to produce additional appliance such the non-stick coated pan.
Another thing: plastic mixing paddle in bad for frying (I have an experience).

I am a terrible cook. I burn everything! The Homecooker means I have stopped burning meals so my family is happy. I was really disappointed with the instructions that came with it. One cook book which doesn't seem to have any recipes that use the whole machine at once. I still haven't worked out how to steam vegies or cook rice. It says look in recipe book for instructions but I can't find them. I have only cooked the Risotto and Crispy Rosemary Potatoes out of the recipe book. They were soooo yummy! I cooked the risotto again for others yesterday and they all said it was wonderful. The rest of the recipes didn't look like they were worth the effort. We've easily cooked other recipes in it though.

If I had a Dollar for everytime I call out in my kitchen"Would someone come stir this for me" I would be rich...Well now I no - longer have to call out for anyones help as The Phillips HomeCooker is the answer to that call. Its like having a second pair of hands in the kitchen. . I m impressed with how easy the machine is to operated, I was cooking with it shortly after taking it out of its box, easy to set up ,cook in it and clean afterwards.
While sautéing bacon and onion this morning, I went outside, picked fresh herbs ,made a pot of tea and chatted to a friend..all while the Homecooker kept 'an eye' and hand' on my dish.
What a great product and design
well Done Philips and Jamie Oliver for the yummy recipies.

My cooker broke down in the first month but was replaced, no questions asked! It meant being without it for three weeks! I use it for stews and soups. I find the, walk away feature, great!
