We've been asked by Philips to find 15 MNers UK based who are willing to put their new HomeCooker (and cutting tower) to the MN test! This is a brand new product and MNers will be among the first to try it.

The HomeCooker is the first in the new range of kitchen appliances that has been co-created by Philips and Jamie Oliver and is a first-of-its-kind, multi-functional device that does the preparation as well as the cooking, meaning you can cook fresh and stay fresh.

For more information please see

Philips say "Enabling you to prepare homemade meals even on your busiest days, the HomeCooker has been specially designed to achieve authentic home cooking with ease. It can chop, stir, steam and sauté and be left cooking unattended".

As Jamie Oliver explains: "We all know it can be a struggle to get fresh, homemade food on the table every day, especially for busy parents who have to juggle so much. It's often a real tradeoff between spending time with the family and getting fresh food on the table. The beauty of the Philips HomeCooker is that it removes this dilemma - you can now do both! Whether you're a beginner cook or a more experienced chef, the HomeCooker takes the pressure off in the kitchen. Because it stirs itself you don't have to stand over a stove but you can still invest all that love and creativity into your meal."

For this we're looking for a range of people - it's aimed at those who like to and want to cook fresh meals but often struggle to find the time.

If you're selected for this product test you will be sent the HomeCooker (and cutting tower) and ingredients to follow one of the recipes provided. You may also want you to try some of your favourites in it.

We'll need you to add three lots of feedback:

1) First impressions on a thread on site
2) Your opinion after you've been using it for a couple of weeks on a thread (we will add more questions to the thread)
3) A review on the MN Reviews section

So long as you do all three you will be able to keep the HomeCooker after testing (RRP £350).

We'd also like testers to send in about 5 photos of the food you create using the HomeCooker - these can be anonymous and will be used on the Philips Facebook pages

If you'd like to put it through the paces please sign up here - if you are selected we will be in touch.

Thanks and good luck

Done - hoping it all pulls apart and pops in the dishwasher when you've finished.

Done. With my HMS and 2 temperamental boys, I'm becoming far too reliant on ready meals and stuff from the freezer.

done - I want one!

Would love to try this and I am probably fairly sceptical about wonder-gadgets. It does sound as if it cooks my sort of food.

IsSamNormansDad Mon 03-Sep-12 16:32:41

Done smile. Hope I get chosen I'm ok at cooking, but don't have enough time for it every day sad

Pooka Mon 03-Sep-12 16:41:01


I'd love to be picked!

alemci Mon 03-Sep-12 16:42:29

this looks a really good product.

MTBMummy Mon 03-Sep-12 16:44:15

Done - why hasn't anyone thought of this before?

LadySybildeChocolate Mon 03-Sep-12 16:44:50

Done. That looks really useful. smile

I don't think I'd be the target audience for this!! I'm VERY skeptical of the Kenwood mixer that can cook too in the bowl - don't see how that works and would doubt you'd get anyting decent out of it.

soppymoo Mon 03-Sep-12 16:53:20

Done. This looks fantastic!

MikeLitorisRings Mon 03-Sep-12 16:58:26
