Featuring an EasySear removable insert pan, the Breville 7-qt. slow cooker is essentially a premium piece of cookware with a slow cooker base. Use the aluminum insert on the stovetop for searing and browning meats and sauteing vegetables before slow cooking - the key to even deeper, richer flavor. The insert also functions on its own as a covered roasting pan and goes straight to the table for easy serving. EasySear stovetop insert lets you sear, saute, slow cook and serve all in one pot. Also safe for oven roasting. The insert is made of die-cast aluminum with a Quantanium nonstick, nonscratch finish. Simple controls offer three temperature settings: low, high and dual.

Dual setting automatically shifts from high to low after approx. two hours for added ease. Wraparound heating element promotes even cooking. Cool-touch silicone covers on handles for easy transport of the insert from stove to slow cooker to table. Large 7-qt. capacity is ideal for entertaining.
