[2 Videos + 3 Recipes] Philips Deluxe Collection Multicooker - Part !! + Giveaway

Have you check out our first review post on this amazing Philips Deluxe Collection Multicooker which allows you to prepare healthy and delicious meal in different ways all year round. For example: meat dish such as beef stew or rendang can be easily done in 40 minutes or less using the pressure cooking compared to 3 hours or more on stove cooking.

In this second post we continue to test other functions as such "steam and manual" feature to cook porridge, dessert and steamed cake.


We love porridge cooks in different type of texture such as Teochew style which the grains still remains whole or Cantonese congee where the texture is creamy and silky. The basic ingredients needed are grain of your choice plus water and the amount of water used and cooking time also determine the texture of your porridge.

One of the things I dislike about cooking porridge is if you have to keep an eye on the pot so that it won't overflow or get burnt at the bottom. Furthermore to achieve a smooth congee texture it needs about an hour or more simmering on low heat. But now it only takes "20 minutes" cooking with my new cooker.

Watch how we prepared this quick and easy Pumpkin Porridge.

我们家很喜欢和粥尤其是颗粒状的潮洲鱼片粥或者是粤式的那种顺滑可口的皮蛋瘦肉粥。因此虽然我常在家里煮但有一点我不喜欢的就是煮的时间很长而且还需要一直看着火和搅拌不然锅低有可能会烧焦。但是现有了新的厨房好帮手,我就能轻松地在 “20分钟” 内煮一锅香滑美味的粥。

I am sure many of us loves a bowl of cold Green Bean soup especially during hot summer season because it can helps to relieve summer heat in the body as well as detox and quench thirst. But since not everyone is suitable to consume green bean due to certain health condition I will suggest to eat it in moderation like once or twice a month.

For those who boiled green bean soup before I think you most properly need around 40 minutes to an hour to get it done. But with this all-in-one cooker it takes about "15 minutes" cooking time with just a touch on the "Soup/Lentils" function button and you see the beans are well cooked and split.

(Yield: 4      | Preparation: 10 minutes      | Cooking: 15 minutes)

3/4 cup green or red bean
1 pack of gingko nuts; about 20 pieces
knot of pandan leaves
some cane sugar to taste
1.5L Water
1/3 cup of pre-cooked pearl sago, optional

1. To start with: in the inner pot add green bean, gingko nuts, pandan leave and water then close and lock the lid.

2. Select "SOUP/LENTILS", set cooking time to "15 minutes" and press "START".

3. Once the cooking process completes, the pressure will be released automatically again follow by beeps and the "Lid unlocked" indicator blinking on the display screen. Carefully unlocked to open the lid and remember to avoid the hot steam from the cooker.

4. Remove the pandan leave, stir in pearl sago and cane sugar. Close the lid and select "Keep warm" mode for about "5 minutes" to allow the heat to dissolve the cane sugar.

If Using Pearl Sago: bring a small pot of water to boil and pour in pearl sago (do not rinse) and simmer on low heat for 5 minutes or so until it turns transparent. Rinse with cold water, drain well and set aside.
