Time is something we all value. Whether you have all the time in the world, or none at all, the Breville Fast Slow Cooker makes the most of what you have available. I personally have purchased this fantastic item, and like all the Breville products, I have yet to be disappointed.
The fast slow cooker has a large capacity of 6 quarts. This is a great feature for large families, dinner parties and even meal prepping. The 6qt cooking bowl is also non-stick and removable! This makes it super easy for serving and clean up. Some other great features are that it has an easy to read LCD display, pressure cook settings Low Medium and High. Breville also includes a couple heat resistant tools along with a steaming basket and trivet. My personal favorite of the cooking settings would have to be Slow Cook (6 or 8hrs) and Pressure Cook (up to 99 minutes). Both of these make putting together dinner an easy task.
One of the greatest feelings is coming home and having dinner already done, with the fast slow cooker I’m able to put chicken (or a roast) into the cooking bowl, throw in some hard vegetables, season and then set the Slow Cook setting for 6hrs. After the time is up the automatic “Warm” setting comes on to maintain the heat of the dish without over cooking. If you are using frozen meats I recommend choosing the 8hr setting. The Pressure Cooking feature is amazing for when you’re short on time and need to pull something together in a rush. I put 4 chicken breasts into the cooking bowl, about 1 cup of water, selected 25mins on high pressure and sure enough, after 25 minutes I had perfectly cooked chicken ready, Remove the chicken and toss in some veggies into the steam basket and trivet. Put it on the Pressure Steam setting and in a few minutes they’re ready to accompany the chicken. Both of these settings eliminate the excuses of not having enough time to make a healthy dinner.
Combined with all the other great features, Breville’s Fast Slow Cooker really does it all. I personally have no complaints and totally love mine. 5 out of 5 stars for sure! Definitely an amazing asset to your kitchen.
