DD is a student and has asked for a rice cooker, . Is it worth spending extra and getting a multicooker, budget probably up to £60.

I have a Russell Hobbs multicooker, it gets loads of use. The rice cooker function works although it doesn't get the rice as fluffy as a rice cooker does. However it's so useful in other ways. I really like that I can just leave it to do its thing while I am at home, e.g. cooking a risotto takes about 20 mins plus 10 mins to release the pressure, but I don't need to stir it or keep an eye on it. Also love it for soups, curries, bolognese and other slow-cook type recipes, it cooks them faster than a slow cooker.

Kitchen gadgets don't always come back from university, or even last a year, so I wouldn't send them with anything too expensive.
Rice cookers are great, lakeland do a fantastic small one for about £30, perfect for one hungry person.

Instant pot is great, slow cooker, pressure cooker. She'll need it pat tested though and they may not allow it in halls.

Not sure that's always the case 're pat testing.
It might be worth posting in higher education too.

Thank you. She isnt in halls now. She is 3rd year house share but planning to stay and work in that city if she can,
I am looking at the King Pro multicooker in currys which is about £45 which seems more versatile than a rice cooker
