Traditional Meals Made Easier with the New Generation Philips All-In-One Pressure Cooker

The Holy month of Ramadhan is here, which means Raya is just around the corner. I don’t know about you, but I can’t help to associate Raya with good food. Rendang, Ketupat, Ayam Masak Merah, the list goes on. To prepare these dishes the traditional way it is often tedious and time-consuming. Well, today I’ll like to talk about a miracle product that’s going to be the super helper in our kitchen, The Philips All-In-One Pressure Cooker.

That’s right, the pressure cooker gets an upgrade and this time it comes with a lot more functions other than just pressure cooker, which to me is definitely good news! I was lucky enough to be invited to the launch of Philips All-in-one Cooker, held at the Yellow Apron in PJ, and we got a preview of how magic happens in the kitchen with this wonderful appliance.

“Ramadan and Raya is a time for families and friends to come together over a hearty meal and is typically a time for Malaysians to savour and appreciate delicious home cooked traditional Malay dishes such as rendang, curry and soup. However, the cooking process for some of these traditional recipes is time-consuming and can take up to several hours of slow cooking to achieve optimal flavour and texture in the dish. In line with our mission to help people improve their lives, Philips Malaysia wants to help you preserve traditions with modern innovations by helping you cook your favourite buka puasa and Raya dishes more conveniently, so you have more precious time to spend with your loved ones,” said Muhammad Ali Jaleel, Country Manager of Philips Malaysia.

“We have collaborated with Chef Marina Mustafa in conjunction with the launch of this new generation Philips All-in-One Pressure Cooker as she has a very innovative approach to preparing delicious healthy home cooked traditional meals. She shares our vision in offering easy yet delicious healthy recipes for consumers. With the new Philips All-In-One Pressure Cooker, this is certainly possible,” Ali added.

Formality aside, we were treated to a few Chefs demonstrating their raya recipes for us. First up, of course, we have Chef Marina Mustafa herself, cooking up the most anticipated Beef Rendang.

Traditionally, Beef Rendang takes at least 4-5 hours to cook, which is cut to dramatic 30minutes with the Pressure Cooker. The result? Same delicious taste with tender beef chunks. Heavenly!

Chef Jovin Lee cooked Lamb Shank Kurma for us. He actually used 2 different methods, one with slow cook function overnight and another with pressure cooking function. That’s right, this cooker can also slow cook, which means you can put all your ingredients in before leaving for work, then coming back to a delicious meal. Fabulous!

Miss Anna Sha demonstrated how she make Mee Rebus gravy with her own twist, using Sweet Potatoes for the natural sweetness.

You can also bake cakes with it! Here Chef Ichiro showed us how he makes the Burnt Sugar Cake (Kek Gula Hangus). This was my favourite, the cake is moist with nice depth of flavours, couldn’t have guessed it’s made with a Pressure cooker!

Fellow blogger Ruby made Acar Buah, using Stew function. Hmmm I can’t wait to get my hands on this to start cooking some exciting recipes. Will keep you all updated once I do!

More about the Philips All-In-One Pressure Cooker: 

Equipped with an intelligent cooking system, the new generation Philips All-In-One Pressure Cooker offers a fully customisable cooking experience that allows you to slow cook or pressure cook, in just one appliance. You can also sauté, sear, bake, reheat and warm up your meals, all in the same machine. The Philips All-In-One Pressure Cooker allows you to cook eight times faster saving time and energy in the kitchen. The pressure cook function comes with various menu buttons for cooking and steaming a variety of dishes ranging from soup, risotto and rice to meat and poultry as well as bake cakes.

The aluminium alloy inner pot of the Philips All-In-One Pressure Cooker is durable and offers more effective heat conduction for a more thorough and even cooking result. It is coated with a special golden Whitford coating that is anti-scratch and non-stick. With an easy-to-programme timer that indicates cooking progress, the days of second guessing when your dish will be ready are over.

For your peace of mind, the new generation Philips All-In-One Pressure Cooker has nine safety protection systems and comes with a pressure regulator that is microchip-controlled. Right after cooking, the pressure regulator automatically turns on to release the pressure, so there is no need to discharge the pressure manually or wait for the pressure to drop naturally as the cooker cools. You can enjoy piping hot delicious homecooked food immediately right out of the pot!
