Lid Not Closed issue. Buy something else until they fix the lid problem.
Fast slow pro. Breville. Worked beautifully for about 10 uses. The lid seemed to be a bit more wobbly with each use. Pressure cooking mostly, lamb shanks & the like. Then I started getting an error message saying Lid Not Closed. Frustrating when you've seared the meat & then put pressure cooking on, & pre-heating commences. The seal is perfect, aligned properly, the pressure relief valve is facing the right way, & its cleaned well after each use. (These are all the things is says to do to troubleshoot the problem.) It's not worth your time nor effort. Buy a different brand.
Love that it retains liquid because of the lid sealer.
Use it mostly for curries and love that I can do everything in the one pot.
I also make soups and occasionally use the steamer. The large pot is a great size.
Gets most of it’s use during the cooler months - usually at least one a week.
Would recommend this product.
Only con is I think it would be better if it was a little wider to fit roasting pieces of lamb/pork as I like to make pulled pork.

When it works its great
But then... It randomly decides to vent steam when it's obvious it's got something in there that is struggling to generate enough steam to come up in pressure at a reasonable rate. Why vent when it's struggling? Weird logic.. Then on other occasions it just won't try hard enough to try getting too pressure. If it can't build steam to close the valve fast enough, why not have in the logic to try a little harder to make enough steam... Rather it just turn the element off and on as it would normally and then gives the lid isn't sealed error or nev...er up to pressure. When it works, which is most of the time I'll give it credit there, it's great. Just the illogical behaviour sometimes makes it frustrating on occasions. Shane there aren't overrides or a try harder button... And yes I understand that pressure cooking needs moisture to build steam.
Terrible lid sealing problem with this product
Absolutely terrible item that fails regularly to seal on the top lid on constant basis when using the pressure cooker side of this product. How Breville let this item onto the market with this fault is mind boggling.
Even replacing the lid seal has now improvement on hit miss sealing.
Would never purchase another Breville product knowing its development team and marketing past this product as fit for use .

Good cooker with the terrible parts issue
Purchased one 1,5 years ago. Worked fine and I was quite happy with it till the safety pin's seal brock. The seal was blocking the steam inside and helping it to push the pin into the arm, stopping lid from opening during the cooking process. The size of the seal is close to 10c and, as Breville said, can't be sold as part. Now I have perfect cooker with no lid and the advise from Breville was to by a whole lid?! The new lid cost over $69!!!
This is the most ridiculous thing I've ever witnessed when to replace 20c seal you need to buy a whole lid at $69!? Not buying it, as there's no guarantee the seal won't brock in the next year or even less. Breville shame on you! Rip off! Bad!!!

We purchased a Breville Fast Slow Pro in 2019 and an error has occurred on the unit which has rendered it unusable. We looked after the unit well and while it was a good unit when it was operational we are very disappointed in the lifespan of the product. We have contacted Breville for a replacement which they have refused and when asked if two years is an expected lifespan for their products I get a vague and evasive answer. Very disappointing. Buyers beware.

Don’t get the Pro model. Get the upgraded Go model. It’s only a little bit dearer but so worth it
If you’re tossing up between the Pro and the Go mode…Go with the Go.
It’s only about $30 more and I got mine price matched at Good Guys to Appliances Online.
It came down to $265.
Below I will compare some of my gripes about the Pro model, and let you know why the Go model is better IMO
A. The non-stick bowl on the Pro..
It clings to any food smells and you cannot wash a strong curry smell off.
Also because it’s black it’s easy to accidentally dump oil in to the unit and forget to put the bowl in.

Excellent Multi Cooker
I am yet to have a problem with my machine after constant use for almost a year. We bought this machine to replace the Tefal Cook4Me that had been replaced once under warranty and then returned with the same problem - steam leaks in the lid even with seal checked and installed correctly.
Back to the Breville. The ability to be able to use different pressure levels for various recipes/dishes is brilliant. The Breville Fast Slow Pro cooks rice better than all the rice cookers I have had and that includes brown rice, risotto, plain old white rice...and especially basmati. I make bolognese that tastes like it has simmered all afternoon in under an hour (all time for prep of ingredients through to serving). I especially like that I can sauté the ingredients first in the one pot then go on to either pressure cook it or slow cook it. I have slow cooked legumes that come out meltingly soft and so full of flavour, it took me by surprise. This appliance is very easy to maintain, clean and use. It has one silicon seal to remove and replace each use. It can be a little fiddly but is much easier than many other pressure cookers. The nut for attaching the lid has an o-ring which ensures a good seal every time. The finger-loop on the power plug make removing the cord from the powerpoint very easy and the whole machine is good for those with arthritic hands.

After 18 mths and only used approximately 10 times the error code EO constantly flashes and renders the machine incapable of working. In consultation with Breville support, the solution was given to contact them for a reduced cost on purchasing a new one. Although I was prepared to purchase a spare part I was not purchasing a new machine after so little use. Will not by purchasing Breville or affiliated brands again. Going straight in the bin!

Great product, simple to use with excellent results
After researching a number of similar products I chose the Breville Fast Slow Pro primarily due to its ease of use and the fact that other Breville products I have used are of high quality. As far as the device is concerned I have not been disappointed as it performs extremely well. My only issue is that it comes with a very limited recipe book and most online recipes I can find are for the Instant Pot and therefore are USA based recipes, using different terms and measurements Hopefully Breville can come up with a Fast Slow cooker community...blog that has Australian based recipes on it. Apart from the small concern, I have been delighted with the Fast Slow Pro cooker. I suppose a measure of success, is that I have been using the cooker more often than I originally thought I would.

Broke down after 2 years light home use
Used this cooker about 2 times a month for 2 years, then the element stopped heating. Cant be repaired. Breville offered 30% discount of RRP for cheaper model, which i declined. This is a terrible lifespan for a premium product.

Outstanding product - used heavily for about 2 years now
I've used and loved this machine for about 2yrs now and while it's been good, it has really shone through since our family has moved to a more whole foods based diet. I use this appliance about 5-8 times per week for pressure cooking soups/stews/curries/hummus etc and now it's winter I've been using it overnight a couple of nights a week to make slow cooked porridge - the BEST way EVER to make porridge it turns out!!! So easy to program, easy to customise if you want to, It's easy to clean, MAX marker on the inside of the bowl stops overfilling..., fits heaps in (6L), very safe to use. Can take a little while to come up to pressure but I suspect that's because I often do dishes with quite a lot of fluid which I believe takes longer to build pressure onto. it's clear on the screen exactly what's going on and I've highly recommend this machine ever since getting it. There's been a few times it hasn't been able to come up to pressure and every time that has been my fault - either a bit of water under the seal, seal not set properly into the holding ring once and i think the other time was when I has pressure cooked one meal then cleaned the bowl and tried to do the next straight away so the retained heat in the unit might have thrown things a little???? Either way, I've always been able to get those minor glitches sorted and the food cooked perfectly. The only downside is the ceramic coated pot. Mine has finally got a chip in it and Breville are saying that the new stainless steel pot from the Fast Slow Go won't fit this model. Frankly I don't believe them and feel like they're saying that to stop people with Pro models just getting the stainless bowl so now I'm wrestling between buying the larger Instant Pot with Air Fryer or getting the fast slow go.... instant pot larger + air fryer but reviews say horrid at slow cooking, breville, known to be awesome, smaller pot (if anyone can call 6L small...?) and a proven history of good results... PS this machine AMAZING risottos if you are like me and love a good creamy, nurturing risotto!!! (Sooooooo good!!!!!)

We love this Breville at home. I have 2 :D
The best Pressure cooker ever. I had problem with my "fancy one" from another brand and decided to try this one. I know it is not cheap, but worth the price, Love the fast release also is easy to clean. I fall in love and now I have 2.

Failed after 1 year and 4 months
The product failed to power on after 1 year and 4 months. Breville refused to replaceor repair it. It is gutted as the machine is one of the most expensive on the market. It costs 400 at the time of purchase. Not happy at all.

You think pressure is building but half an hour later the machine tells you to seal the lid
I bought this mainly as a pressure cooker. I cook casseroles mainly. However much care and force that I use to close the lid, in about 70% of uses the lid fails after half an hour of waiting. Don't buy this if you want a pressure cooker. It always smells whatever I do. I would never use it to cook sweet food.
