I got this as a mothers day present last year and it is one of my favourite appliance in the kitchen. I love how you can use it in the oven and stove tops. I use the all the time to make roast dinners and casseroles in the oven. Which you are unable to do with most other slow cookers.
It makes it so easy when you need to brown the meat for slow cookers. You don't need to transfer the meat from a pan to the slow cooker, you can just heat it in the slow cooker!! Saving on dishes and time :)
I love that it has 3 heating options too, low, h...igh and auto. Makes it easier if I forget to put the slow cooker in the morning. everything! The rubber handle fell off, which is a shame. It would be good for it automatically went to warming or turn off element if you're running late to get home. The base can easily be scratched if you're not careful.
Very happy but ...
Very happy with it - easy to use and clean. Instruction book not that good still wondering if it turns itself off. What happens if we are unexpectedly delayed? Does it turn off if it 'boils' dry? Love the stainless steel but glass lid is good idea. Expected more recipes on-line not just those in the book.
Ease of use and cleaning. Looks good, especially at dinner table.
Does it turn itself off? Is there an automatic boil dry safety off switch?

I love that I can finally sear my meat and slow cook in the same pan
I have been looking for the a slow cooker that I could sear my meat in because I hate doing dishes. I finally found the Breville ikon slow cooker and haven't looked back.
I find that the EasySear Pan sears meat well and caramelises vegetables niceley. It's great being able to get everything to a boil and then put the pan in the slowcooker. I have put the pan in the dishwasher but I am conscious that it recommends handwashing and I was the pan to last so I tend to handwash. It cleans up easily enough.
I would love a timer on the actual s...lowcooker which I did have on my previous slowcooker but the convenience of browning the meat and vegies and slowcooking in one pan, far outweights the inconvenience of not having a timer. It's also great that it's so big, I can usually make a few days worth of food and pop the extra in the freezer. Easy to use. Looks nice on the bench. It's so good being able to brown your meat in the same pan as you slowcook, it really retains the lovely flavour from the meat. The recipe is a useful guide and I use it to see how I can adapt my own recipes. Fairly easy to clean. Very large and able to make up to 10 serves. Expensive, I bought it on sale at Myer when they had 15% off electricals. I have seen one that looks pretty much identical to this at Target for less than 1/4 of the price.
Love this pan & use it most days!
Love this cooker! Being able to start the meal on the gas hob reduces washing up (no frypan needed) and allows you to get the meal heated through before starting the slow cooking process.
I've used it to make healthy meat meals, and delicious stews. The 'auto' setting is especially good for overnight cooking.
Fuctional, convenient and low-mess. Easy to clean.
Nothing - I'm very pleased with it.
Best buy this year so far
Great love this product can get everything ready just switch on and go loveeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!
Huge capacity I bought the 7l version
I shopped around for the price approched my local clive peeters and got a grteate deal paid $160 cash
nothing would love a glass lid hopefully some one at breville is reading this and will sell them seperatley in future i will be their first
A fabulous slow cooker, excellent quality that will last for years. It is a very powerful cooker so be sure to check the food and shorten the recommended cooking time on recipes. You may need to addd more water to avoid the meat drying out
The large size enables cooking of large family size meals suchs as roast or lamb shanks. One pot cooking with the "EasySear" pan saves time and is so convenient as nearly all slow cook recipes require the meat to be browned before it is placed in the slow cooker
I wish that the lid was glass so that I could see how the food is cooking without having to remove the lid
Bought 6 weeks ago.Forget 6 lamb shanks I can fit 12 in this beauty. Just get your butcher to chop enough to bend the end of each shank when purchasing. My butcher offered this service without me having to ask. Shanks are to die for. Have made age old chump chop receipe that usually goes in oven in this twice now unbelievablly even better if that is possible.Love the fact that my only washing up is chopping board, knife, plate containing flour to roll meat in,tongs,wooden spoon and inner searing pan.Thats it. This searing pan is soo easy to cle...an aspecially if done while still warm. Nothing sticks! Easy clean, cooks enough for 2 nights worth for family of 4 with some still left to freeze for another time needed. Set and forget. I find works best for me to put on at night while in kitchen sorting dinner I can prep this at same time and go to bed. Next morning all done, put in fridge ready for couscous to add to finish dish after working all day. Crap receipe book. chicken marsala too strong for my family. Go on line to find better receipes and have fun experimenting.
Wished they had developed this product years ago. So easy to use and clean. Legs of lamb just melt in your mouth. Silverside cooks to perfection. The dimensions of this unit have it over the oval shape slow cookers as it enables a better fit with your food products. Brillant!
Just LOVE this! So easy to use! Breville say one pan cooking and it is exactly that. Roasts are just perfect! Have NOT had one disappointment. Good looking piece of equipment.
I am so happy with this slow cooker. Everything I have made in it has been absolutely perfectly cooked and it's so easy to use because you do everything in one pot... so less clean up :-)
The best slow cooker out there! Can do everything in the one pot, great size - fits 6 lamb shanks. Meat just falls off the bone.
