How the pricing table works
A new multicooker has entered the Moulinex catalog, and it’s not a Cookeo. He responds to the name of Turbo Cuisine and is presented rather as a more affordable alternative to the brand’s flagship model. However, he promises to make “home cooking easier and delicious than ever” allowing the development of “healthy meals for the whole family, from appetizer to dessert, effortlessly”. A truly enticing program!
No integrated recipes, but programs and a new bowl
The main difference with a Cookeo lies in the absence of a screen. It is therefore necessary to do without integrated recipes, but it is possible to find them in the mobile app available in addition. As on the Fast Slow GO from Sage or the Fast & Delicious from Tefal, the control panel here consists of a simple digital display and buttons giving access to a manual mode and nine programs: Stewed, Soup, Browned, Steamed, Cake, Sous vide/low temperature cooking, Rice, Yoghurt and fermentation and Porridge.
On all of these programs, the Turbo Cuisine can heat from 70 to 160°C, and some take advantage of the hermetic lid to cook under pressure (70 kPa) and thus reduce the cooking time. Moulinex mentions cooking up to three times faster compared to traditional cooking on gas or electric plates, but let’s remember the existence of pressure cookers (or pressure cookers) for cooking under pressure on a plate.
The Turbo Cuisine also benefits from an unprecedented tank. With a capacity of 4.8 l, it is spherical and would guarantee, according to Moulinex, a “tastier, tenderer and juicier cooking”. We obviously only ask to be convinced.
In the meantime, it should be noted that this tank is not equipped with handles unlike that of the Cookeo, a little larger as a bonus with its capacity of 6 l. In addition to this Spherical Bowl, as Moulinex nicknames it, the Turbo Cuisine comes with a steamer basket, a measuring cup, a ladle and a rice spoon. The set is dishwasher safe for easy maintenance. A Turbo Cuisine & Fry version is also offered with a bonus Air-Fry Turbo Crisp lid.
Similar to the Extra Crisp available for the Cookeo, this one works with its own power supply and includes a resistance and a fan to fry without oil or simply cook like in an oven. Unfortunately, there is little chance of buying it separately to complete the standard version: the tank is not the same. That of the Turbo Cuisine & Fry is a little larger (7.6 liters), but also thicker with walls of 2 mm against 1.6 mm.
The Turbo Cuisine is now available at the recommended retail price of €160. Larger and more versatile, the Turbo Cuisine & Fry is launched at €290. In comparison, Ninja’s Foodi OL550EU SmartLid, also capable of cooking under pressure and hot air, is a little more expensive, but we can still turn to its predecessor, certainly a little less complete, but more affordable: the Foodi Mini OP100EU.
