You won't regret it

Had my jumbo for 3 years it's been awesome, the whole whanau just love it, easy to work, I've got it down to a fine art whether smoking ika or hangi or BBQ, simply amazing taste with manuka chips can't beat it.

I just can't say enough about the Multi Kai Cooker.

I would recommend this if your thinking about buying one be like Nike and "just do it" you won't regret it....Mauri Ora

Thank you for our Multikai Cooker. It arrived Friday and seemed all good. We used it on Saturday for our game against Massey High School and they enjoyed the Hangi. It seems to have worked well and on behalf of Mahurangi College and our Maori Department. Thank you.

Perfect hangi every time

We have been using the Doug Andrews Multikai cooker as our main source of fundraising for our Portland Masters Rugby League for over 6 years. We use three jumbo multikai cookers and the total amount of packed hangi parcels we can produce per cooker is 130. The multikai cooker is an absolutely efficient way of producing a perfect hangi every time. Because of the Multikai cooker the Portland Masters has a reputation for producing, a consistently high quality hangi.

The Portland Master highly recommend the use of the MultiKai Cooker as an easy to use, efficient, cost effective way of cooking the perfect hangi every time. A must have for all Sporting Clubs to use for fundraising and also an easy way to cater for large gatherings of hungry people.

One of the best buys that we have made

We have a family size Multikai cooker and we can cater for our extended family of 25. Over the years we have used our multikai cooker as a, meat roaster, fish smoker, crayfish and vegetable steamer and the base for deep frying of fry bread, batter fish, and also to make stir fried vegetables. We recently heard that you can make a homemade smoked pizza and our taste buds are salivating at the thought.

One of the best buys that we have made.

Just had our first feed and it was fantastic! Absolutely beautiful!! The MKC is well made, built to last, it came well packaged and arrived very quickly. The instructions are well written and accurate. Thank you very much - we are really happy with it!

I wouldn’t be without it!

Kia Ora

I have owned my family sized Multi Kai cooker for about five years and it quickly became an essential piece of our way of cooking and entertaining. I use it for everything, from convenient BBQ needs to smoking fish and of course a no hassle way to create that tradition Hangi taste.Every year my brothers and I head north for a bit of bonding as we all have sons and where we go has no power,bring on the Multi Kai Cooker.It boils the jug for coffee,then bacon and eggs with toast,then toasted sandwiches for lunch,then I bang on some chicken,pork ,kumara etc and this gets hangied up while we go for a quick fish of the rocks, our kai is ready when we get home.I can feed the whole whanau and it is a no brainer!

I love this thing so much I now have the jumbo, just in case my wife’s family turn up.

Multi-Kai cooker ! I wouldn’t be without it!

Superb meal


We used the MultiKai cooker the other day and as always had a superb meal but never looked forward to cleaning it after, until I had a thought. Why not use the water blaster so we did and even though it took a little bit of time, it was easy and all that was required was to give it a wipe over with hot soapy water and dry it at the end.

Turned out bloody great

Hi Doug,

Just to let you know that I tried the cooker last week and it turned out bloody great. I only tried the two baskets, want to know if you put the same amount of water when using the four baskets if using fresh meat. Anyway I just wanted to let you know how it turned out, also my navy club wants to try it out on new years day.

Kia ora Doug,

I bought the family size cooker about two weeks ago. JUST WANT TO ENDORSE YOUR PRODUCT.

Have found it so tremendously convenient as I am a doble leg amputtee (AK - BK). I already used it for smoking left over fish heads and back bones from the freezer and can’t praise you enough for this great product. I would recommend it to anyone and am looking forward to my first hangi around xmas with the family.

Wish you every success in selling your product.

Awesome machine!!!

Hi Doug,

Good on you for creating this awesome machine!!! Love it. I have asked my whanau for one for my upcoming birthday present. Well done and I hope you make heaps from this idea.

I’m gonna give it a crack with muttonbirds…yummo

Just a note to say a big thanks to you Doug and your successful business.

Living in the city (Hastings) & fire permits virtually impossible for a traditional hangi the Kai cooker was perfect. We purchased the family sized version just over 3 years ago. Its still going strong, not as shiny, a few dents here & there (fell off my truck believe it or not). Its even been to Taranaki with us just this last Xmas. We have had nothing but pleasure, joy, topic starters and fantastic entertainment and of course overfed bellies from our Kai cooker.

Our extended families, friends, their friends, neighbours and workmates have all had a feast from the Kai cooker & had nothing but great comments from them all. We have indeed got our monies worth back from the Kai cooker & will continue feasting so again thank you.

Absolutely loved it!


Just wanted to let you know that we used the cooker for the first time on Saturday night and absolutely loved it!

The steaming of the food is just so nice and made me feel healthier too. Thanks again for the good communication and i’m definitely going to be recommending it.
