I'm going to be decamping to a tiny apartment in the Alps next week and the cooking & storage facilities will be very limited.
I want to make bread for lunches, slow cook for supper and pressure cook soups. I have a halogen cooker for healthy roasts, but fancy am all singing & dancing machine. Are there any that are good at all these things?

I love my Instant Pot and it functions very well as a slow cooker as well as a pressure cooker.

Instant Pot

It has a lot of preprogrammed cooking options.

That's the kind of thing I'm after, have you ever tried making bread with it?

No, I have not. It had never occurred to me that I could, but it is possible according to Mr. Google:

Seconding the instant pot recommendation.

I would also recommend the Instant Pot. Had never used a pressure cooker before and now use it regularly. I also like the sauté function for initial browning or thickening after cooking.

I'll have a look for an Instant pot then! Thank you 😄

I found the instant pot added a horrible taste to everything it cooked! So I sent it back. Going to try the Pressure King Pro. It can do so much more as well. 12 in 1 whereas Instant Pot is only 7 in 1

I've not experienced any issues with the taste of anything cooked in the Instant Pot. You do have to be careful to get the version with the functions you want and I am aware from a FB group I am a member of that some have been out of stock recently in the UK.

Thank you - it's on order & I'm rather excited
I use my basic stove top one a fair bit, but I'm looking forward to the versatility.

BTW - think carefully before you ever use cous-cous. Once had a minor eruption & damn stuff gets everywhere...

The UK instant pot Facebook group is really good for tips and ideas, and back up when things don't go to plan!
