This cooker exceeds the expectations of any electric pressure cooker you could get at this price. If you can afford it, this cooker beats any non-electric you can find and beats much of its competition in electric pressure cooking as well.

So now look with me into the more intricate details of this cooker as we look at some more specific features and benefits this cooker can bring to your dinner table.
The Features and Benefits of the Breville Fast Slow Pro
This cooker, as I mentioned, is a high-class electric pressure cooker and is on the steeper end of the market. It has all the simplicity features you would expect from an electric cooker and has a lot of the fancy touches you tend to see in higher priced cookers.
Let's take a look at these;
- The interface is a fully digital LED display that hosts most of your cooking options as well as monitors and displays the machine's current status. This along with the dials to control temperature settings and such on this cooker make it one of the most convenient and fancy cookers out there.
- This pressure cooker also has the option to slow cook foods to make them more tender.
- The Fast Slow Pro has several preset options as well as a custom setting to save your favorite dish.
- The design feature cool touch handles for safety and an automatic steam release valve monitored in real-time on the LED display.
- Other standard features such as an automatic keep warm function so that food coming out of it is ready to serve at any time.
- Unlike many other cookers on the market, this cooker lacks the ability to cook yogurt, however.
This cooker without a shadow of a doubt is one of the fanciest cookers out, it has almost everything you could want in an electric pressure cooker, short of full autonomy.
So we've looked at a lot of the good things about this cooker, but just how safe can something this automatic be?
How Safe is the Breville Fast Slow Pro?
This cooker is probably one of the most safety conscious cookers out. This is where the Fast Slow Pro truly shines.
So we've already established it's fancy, now let's make a list of all its safety features;
- The Breville has a 3-way safety locking lid, it functions in tandem with the automatic steam release valve to ensure that no pressure escapes the cooker while it is still cooking.
- The Safety valve is hands-free so you don't have to worry about getting burned when it releases steam after it is done cooking.
- The cooking bowl is removable with PTFE and PFOA free ceramic coating, this keeps the food from sticking to the pot and ensures no dangerous chemicals seep into the food while it's making.
- The cooker also features sensors at the top and bottom of the bowl to monitor the food in the bowl for more accurate temperature and pressure control.
- Safety conscious, cool touch handles to prevent potential burns when touching the cooker.
This cooker comes with many safety features that are uncommon, making it truly stand out in that regard. For the price this cooker is, it definitely earns that price tag here.
So safety nd flashiness is great, but how well does it cook? Let's see how it performs.
How Well Does the Fast Slow Pro Cook?
Most people would probably think this is a silly question but honestly, if we buy a pressure cooker, we want it to function well!
This cooker cooks rather well and from most reviews, it has a decently long life span, one of the safety features it lacks that can potentially decrease the lifespan is the display screen where most of the information and function is held, has no protection facing on it.
For the most part, as long as you are careful that the lid doesn't drip any stray hot water onto the screen you should be fine, but it is a concern.
All in all, it performs all cooking functions much better than you would expect, even for its price.
The cookers wattage comes in at just over an average 6-quart cooker's 1000 watts at 1100 watts. This extra energy cost is mostly for the LED screen power and all the meters in the system.
Maintenance and Cleanup
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.
With the electric bits and such, it would probably help to wipe them down with an anti-bacterial wipe just to keep it extra clean. Just don't use actual water as it could damage the internals or the screen.
Temperatures and Stats On the Fast Slow Pro
