If there’s one kitchen appliance I can’t live without, it’s my slow cooker. I don’t use it every week but when I want a meal that takes no effort and will be enjoyed by everyone, a pot of chili or pulled pork simmered to perfection in the slow cooker is always a hit.

When I only have thirty minutes to get dinner on the table, the slow cooker isn’t an option.
So what’s an overworked mom to do? Turn to the Breville Fast Slow Pro, a combination pressure cooker and slow cooker, of course! This multitasking kitchen appliance is my newest kitchen must-have and after only a week, I have no idea how I ever got by without it. When you have time, use the slow cooker setting to make tender and succulent stews, roasts, desserts and more. When you’re in a rush, the pressure cooker setting whips up everything from buttery mashed potatoes to sensational sauces or stews in just minutes!
