Rated 2 out of 5 by paula2 Breville cooker good for the young at heart
I got this and was very happy until I read the directions. What a sorry bunch there is of them and I took 3 days to read all and still didn't know what the heck I supposed to do, like where to go to start it. I am a senior and like they say you can't teach old dogs new tricks and that applied to me. I did try it just once and that was on slo cooker and burned the meat. It is being returned ..sorry I will get the one that doesn't cost this much and not be afraid to use it. Sorry
Rated 5 out of 5 by EspnART Worth Every Penny!
After many years of ignoring my stove top model (so noisy, so tricky to manage, and sooo scary), I tried a programmable, modestly priced, electric pressure cooker. The time came to replace it and, after doing my homework, the options became clear: spend an affordable amount and replace it again in a couple of years, or spend the cash for a higher priced unit that will last. Feeling that the cheaper course would be a waste of money, I opted for the latter.
The difference in the final product - the food - is amazing! The unit is easy to program and use, it cleans up like a dream, and the quality difference between this and my earlier electric cooker is substantial. Only time will tell if it will need replacement down the road, but if someone is hold off because of the price - SPEND THE MONEY! It is worth every penny!
Rated 5 out of 5 by MetaOaks Best Multi Cooker Ever
I adore Breville products in general. I have the Smart Oven and am so thankful I got it. The Smart Oven cooks better than my gas range oven. This Cooker is a Pressure Cooker, Slow Cooker, Rice Cooker and so much more. Breville products are expensive but they are SOOOOO worth it.

This has to be the best electric pressure cooker on the market!
I purchased a much cheaper pressure cooker previously and returned it after a few weeks. I loved the idea of pressure cooking though , so I went on a search to find the BEST and this is it.
No worries using this like with the cheaper brands, I simply set it and I do not have to worry that it won't come to pressure or that it will randomly turn off.
The smart settings are truly amazing, you can choose how you want the pressure to release and not have to touch a thing other than a button before you start cooking. I love all of the cooking options but have not tried them all yet. The rice is the best we ever had. I did purchase separately elsewhere a six quart 18/10 stainless steel insert pot and recommend doing the same. The pot it comes with is great but non stick just doesn't cook like stainless. It is nice having two pots for when I am cooking meat and a side.
This is pricy but Breville is top of the line and worth it.
