By name it is clear that this device can perform a variety of functions: cook as a double boiler, brazier or oven.The multivar works from electricity, like a toaster or, for example, a microwave oven..
The main difference from all appliances for cooking is that it is automatically very is precisely controlled, and the food container is closed on all sides, so that the multi- pressure. It has a chip, through which a specific heating program is given..
So, we can choose the appropriate program, and the multivariate will prepare the food herself. This is the principle of its work.
The integral parts of any multivark are:
- plastic or metal case with a cover;
- a bowl in which products are loaded;
- electric heater (heating element);
- a control unit that is connected through a temperature sensor to the bottom of the bowl.
Note that there are still induction multivarquins. In them, the principle of work is slightly different. The bowl is heated completely by induction currents, and there is no TEN in it.
Modern multivarkas are supplied with other parts necessary for convenient use. So, the case has a display with control buttons, the cover is equipped with a water trap, in which condensate is collected.
You can find models in which there are additional perforated containers for cooking at the pore or frying in deep fat, which increases its functions. As a result, your multivarker can work as a steamer or deep fryer. Many multivarques are equipped with special spatulas for mixing, measuring cups and books with dozens of recipes. All these additional items do not affect the principle of work, but simply expand its capabilities.
How it works
If we consider the principle of work in more detail, then everything looks as follows.
- You must choose the dish and the recipe for its preparation.
- Then you load the necessary ingredients into the bowl, turn the appliance on.
- Select the program by pressing the appropriate buttons and turn on the multivarker so that it starts to heat up, that is, directly cook.

The operating time of the heating element in the device is controlled by a timer. In order for excessive steam to come out in the lid, holes are provided. Compared to an electric stove, a multivarka consumes little electricity. It works from a normal household electrical system.

For adherents of a healthy lifestyle, the "steamer" mode is very useful. The device should be equipped with a special grate, on which the products are spread. The steamer in the multivark has the same principle of operation as an ordinary steamer. Water is boiling in the bowl, and food is on top.
