The Tortoise & The Hare

Fast Slow Pro

What It Is: With Easter coming up tomorrow, I simply had to share a gift idea that speaks to the season…sort of. At the very least, it reminded me of the dichotomy of the infamous Tortoise and the Hare. Meet the Breville Fast Slow Pro, a multi-tasking, multi-functional device that you’ll wonder how you’ve ever lived without. This unique device works as both a slow cooker and a pressure cooker, and has been specifically designed to make whatever you’re cooking the perfect texture with the most flavour possible. What does this mean? Well first of all, it means hands off cooking – no more stressing and fussing and stirring over the stove or checking on a roast in the oven. For example, this amazing little device can actually make mouthwatering-risotto (I should know – I tried it this week and it turned out splendid!)

Secondly, it can also save you money. Tougher cuts of meat are often cheaper because they’re trickier to cook. But with the Fast Slow Pro, you can get the most out of your meat with tender, juicy results every time. Plus, it can save you time. The pressure cooker function is a shortcut to perfectly tender-crisp veggies, mashed potatoes, and meat. Did I mention it also works as a steamer? Or that it can make extra flavourful soup broths in mere minutes? Or that it’ll save you space because you can clear out a few extra appliances? Impressed yet? I sure am!

Who It’s For: The happy couple, as a swell wedding gift they will totally use. Your foodie sibling, to outfit her new home. Your spouse, to make meal time even simpler.

What It Costs: MSRP is $369.99

Where It’s At: Visit the Breville website for retailers or to buy direct.

    The Breville Fast Slow Pro – it can save me Money, it can save me Time, it can provide me with delicious Substance – I would LOVE to own one! I better start saving…

  4. Gizele says:

    I think it’s great to be able to use it for both a slow cooker and a pressure cooker. Why have two machines instead of one?

  5. Perfect for my daughter’s small kitchen with not too much storage space

  6. katydidit21 says:

    This would be a great addition to any kitchen. I love that it is multifunctional. I would love to own one of these puppies.

  7. Sherry K says:

    I would love this. I have hesitated buying a slow cooker because I didn’t think I would use it enough, but this Breville Fast Slow Pro sounds much more versatile.

  8. aketch says:

    I think it is fantastic. Perhaps it would save some cupboard space, because it is multi functional, so you wouldn’t need other appliances.

  9. Aimee says:

    I am a subscriber. I would buy this for myself, I love making soup.

  10. nicolthepickle says:

    It’s impressive. I can’t imagine that it can make risotto. I use my slowcooker a lot. This seems like a better version and faster.

  11. Jennifer Kelsie says:

    That is not my Mother’s Pressure Cooker!! I really like it! And probably less chance of it blowing up hahahahah 😀

  12. Susan says:

    I really like multi-purpose appliances and this Fast Slow Pro looks amazing!

  13. Anne Derkat says:

    Wow! Sounds absolutely amazing! I want one!

  14. Kim K says:

    I’ve never used a pressure cooker before and the versatility of this machine sounds awesome!

  15. Tom D. says:

    This will replace a number of cooking utensils in my kitchen. Looks good too.

  16. Karen says:

    That would be so great to have! It is a bit expensive though.

  17. Lindsey says:

    I already have a slow cooker, so I don’t think I would need this!

  18. Kay Burke says:

    This would be a great addition to my slow cooker (I would pass that on:) but is a little pricey.

  19. janinevan09 says:

    I like the size of it, doesn’t take up a ton of space and is certainly very useful!

  20. Gigi says:

    I love my slow cooker and would love to try a pressure cooker.

  21. cookie3 says:

    I’ve been having one of these on my wish list for a while now. Love it.

    I need something like this!

  28. Kelly H says:

    i love the idea! I have neither a slow cooker or a pressure cooker, so this would be great to have.

  29. dabrowne says:

    With the cost of meat these days, this machine would pay for itself in no time, by making the cheaper cuts very tasty.

  30. Alison K says:

    I’ve never used a pressure cooker before, but I definitely would if it was also a slow cooker. Great multi function!

  32. Christine Holliday says:
