So Far So Good

We got this to replace a Instant Pot which was good but the pressure release broke. I had a look around and found this on special in the Qantas shop so bought it with points. It's certainly a step up from the instant pot with more functionality. It does its job very well, slow cooks and pressure cooks have turned out great. As always time will tell quality wise but after a year of regular use it's still like new. Show details

The most used item in my cooking arsenal

I've owned a few multi cookers over the last couple of decades, but nothing has won my heart like the Fast Slow Pro. This device is adjustable in almost every way, from temperature to cooking time to pressure. I live alone, so being able to cook bigger meals and freeze the extra serves for later is essential to my cooking habits. I am also a huge fan of curries and slow cooked meals like Lamb Shanks, so being able to make big batches of these types of meals under pressure at 1/4 of time is just awesome. In typical Breville style, particularly for the flagship products, this cooker is so much sturdier than the cheaper competition. It may not be the cheapest multi cooker on the market, but I definitely reckon it's the best. Show details

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.

Great product

Great cooker.
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.
Jan 2023 update. Still working well. Show details

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 . Show details

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!!! Show details

Short lifespan

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. Show details

Questions & Answers

I have had my Breville Fast Slow Pro for a couple of years and have really enjoyed using it. However, it will not get to temperature any more (eg: for sear, reduce etc). There is power to the unit but the screen just says 'pre-heating' and it doesn't warm-up. Anyone got any quick-fixes?

First time using the Breville Fast Slow Pro Pressure Cooker to make a Chicken Stock recipe straight out of the cookbook that came with the cooker. Lid shut, pin matches up, valve in right place. After it gets through pre-heating it starts spattering liquid out through the pin all over the lid and kitchen bench. I've never seen this before in our old pressure cooker. I ended up turning it off as it was so messy and dangerous with hot liquid spraying out and I'm guessing would only get worse throughout the next hour of cooking. Does anyone know why it did this?

Points of Praise

  • This multi-cooker prepares a variety of foods to perfection, including risotto, rice, stews, roast lamb, and fudge among them.
  • Pre-set functions make cooking a breeze, while the option to use the manual settings for more manual c ontrol was also appreciated by reviewers.
  • One of the best things about this multi-cooker was the versatility of cooking functions available. Reviewers appreciated that they could do all their cooking in the one machine, if they chose to. Others stated that while they preferred slow cooking, they often forgot to start the cooking process in the morning - in which case, the speedy pressure cook function came in handy.
  • Overall, this appliance was praised as being highly user friendly. It won points from reviewers for being both easy to use and easy to clean, especially as the lid is dishwasher safe.

Points to consider

  • A number of home chefs stated that they’d prefer a stainless steel inner pot instead of the ceramic-coated inner bowl, as it’s more resilient when it comes to cooking.
  • The lid doesn’t always seal correctly, and some reviewers experienced issues with this - particularly before a pressure cooking session.
