Not a reliable pressure cooker

When it works, brilliant. Only if you hold your breath, hold your tongue the right way, cross your fingers, pray to god, and do a handstand. I bought it for the pressure cooker function, and it’s grossly unreliable. Do not recommend. Show details

Great, but non stick insert fails/scratches just cleaning it with a nylon brush

Had this cooker for a while. Used it for rice cooking more than anything else.
After a while the insert started to show scratches just cleaning it with a nylon brush.
Just phoned up Breville, a new one costs $159 and a replacement liner is over $60. Said I would go look for one that has a more heavy duty non stick liner or ceramic.
Unfortunately in the shops most have a complex interface, I have enjoyed this ones simplicity. Show details

Versatile product

I’ve been using regularly and have not been disappointed. Great sautee feature, pressure cooking is good alternative to slow cooking as so much faster . I also use it boil rice, pasta, legumes. I use weekly in winter to make soups and have been happy with the result. I like that the lid comes off completely unlike the Tefal cook in one. Only downside is it takes a while to reach pressure to start actually cooking, approx 10 minutes so need to factor in this time.  Show details

Great until it stops working

Was really happy with this, but after about a dozen times using it now it fails to pressurise about 75% of the time and I only find out at the end when no pressure releases and food isn’t cooked. Very frustrating when you need to get dinner on the table. I purchased an Instant Pot to replace it - it is so much easier to use than the Breville. Show details

Best and worse device

First time using it very happy. Second time the seal didn’t work and I couldn’t use the pressure function, when I had people over to cook for. Disappointing, it is going back and am going to buy another product. Show details

Very Useful

I have owned a FastSlow for 12 months. It is great. I cook a lot of soups and curries using a mix of pressure cooking and slow cooking meaning lots of flavour and keeps hot for eating at different times. Only difficulty is there is no temperature control on the sear feature. Show details

Prefer an old-fashioned crockpot

Food comes out much more tastier using the slow cooker feature than the pressure cooker feature. Beef spare ribs using the pressure cooker function came out very chewy with not much taste.

In hindsight I should have just bought an old fashioned crock pot with a glass lid. Show details

Started out great

The first 4 times I used it I loved BUT then, the lid would not seal. Got a replacement but still had the same issue. Ended up returning it and getting a refund. Very disappointed Show details

Should there be steam whistling out of the ‘hot steam vent’ while it’s cooking in pressure cooker mode???

I quite often use my WONDERFUL fast-slow cooker to slow cook. Have always wondered where it is optimal to set the pressure: Hi Med or Low when I do this. Advice appreciated. Rosie in New Zealand
