Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

The Breville Fast Slow Pro is a versatile multi-cooker that performs well under many scenarios, including searing meat, slow cooking and pressure cooking.
A high-powered electric pressure cooker that helps you control the amount of pressure, cooking time, and how the pressure is released at the end of cooking.

As with most pricey cookers, the lid and the pot itself are dishwasher safe so you don’t need to wash it by hand for the sake of convenience.
Excellent at pressure-cooking beef stew.
I have three Breville Pressure Cookers. All work. Some of the reviews that are unfavorable appear to be user issues. It pays to learn all the in's and out's of pressure cooking. I have done my fair share of goofs but I figured out what I was doing wrong and all work perfectly now. The lid does not open because of safety reasons. It still has pressure. At first I did not like the detaching of the lid, but realized the benefit. It is very easy to clean. I still have control manually if I like things more or less cooked. I mostly use the auto setting. I am pleased with my results. Yes pressure cooking saves time, but it really adds flavor to many dishes like chicken. Breville is more expensive than many other brands but I think Breville really looked at ways to improve their product and make it better. There may be times that a product will malfunction and should be replaced. It happens! I believe every cook can use a pressure cooker in their kitchen! I appreciate Breville making a wider lip for cleaning drips and spills, cleverly providing a lift lid that holds open instead of me looking for a place in my kitchen to set the hot lid down, detachment of the lid for easy cleaning, an easy operating panel, and providing the circle plug found on all my Breville electric products. I would encourage anyone to take a look at the features a pressure cooker like Breville has to offer. This is one of my favorite gifts to give my family!
What impressed me the most is that the few automated programs I tried (with their pre-selected time, pressure and opening) worked while the other programs use the proper release for the type of food being cooked.
This unit also had a 3-way safety system that kept it safe for the average person to use. This safety features consists of a locking lid, a manual steam release and a safety valve. Which made me very comfortable using it.
Our previous upgrade pick, the Breville Fast Slow Pro, scored well due to its intuitive interface, sleek design, and altitude-adjust function.
Breville's signature interface with multiple selection knobs and a large LCD screen make what otherwise would be an overwhelming amount of settings and options feel intuitive and easily navigable. It really shines when it comes to prepping meats.
It's advertised as a pressure cooker, but it can also sear, steam, sauté, and slow cook. Great digital display that changes colors as it cooks, releases steam, or pressurizes.

What reviewers didn't like

It's difficult to get a good seal on the lid when it's time to use the pressure cooker function.
At $250, twice as much as most other pressure cookers.
- Wired
This cooker lacks the ability to cook yogurt.
Quick release valve wasn't fast to release pressure.
I had high hopes for the Breville pressure cooker. I loved the idea of all the different functions. However, the pressure cooker takes entirely too long to reach full pressure. I have been using the Cuisinart Electric Pressure cooker for years and it comes to full high pressure in half the time. I called Breville support and was told it could take up to 45 minutes to come to high pressure. If it takes that long to come to pressure -,it defeats the idea of cooking quickly in a pressure cooker. This pressure cooker will be returned.
The problem with the lid hinging to the right happens before and after pressure cooking. When I’m sauteing or browning ingredients my hand is always bumping into the lid.
The one thing that I really didn’t like about the Breville The Fast Slow Pro Silver is its ceramic cooking pot. While I didn’t necessarily have a problem with the ceramic pot, I do feel that it might be easily scratched and if that did happen, then it would start to retain odors.
he Instant Pot Ultra now occupies this Breville model’s spot because it offers all of those things while adding more functionality and an uncoated stainless steel cooking pot (the Fast Slow Pro has a nonstick coated insert), for $100 less.
The only real qualm we had with this machine is its price, as $250 is double what most cookers cost. If that sounds a bit steep we would recommend the still exceptional Instant Pot DUO60.
Pot can retain "taste" of previously cooked meals and has a delicate finish.
