The SecretChef is designed as a Frypan and Slow Cooker in one, that sears and slow cooks in the one unit, no need to have separate pans, or to use the stovetop. Use as a Frypan or as a Slow Cooker, or if you're slow cooking, you can use both modes. It's handy when slow cooking, as you can brown your meats on the Frypan mode, then switch to Slow Cook mode for the remainder. It's so versatile you can create roast dinners, mouth-watering soups and desserts to hearty slow cooked casseroles and curries. Even sear a juicy steak or make bacon and eggs. Ideal for 6-8 people, and those who love leftovers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HP8555 slow cooker I have been a huge fan of slow cooking for many years, the only problem for me was you had to brown the meat in a fry pan transfer it to the slow cooker once cooked back into a pan to reduce the jus or add corn flour to thicken. I was so excited when I read about the HP8555 . I have been using it for some time and can only say this has to be one of the best products I have ever purchased, it browns, cooks and reduces all in the same pan .All the recipes I have tried have been cooked to perfection The insert is so easy to clean and light weight. I would highly recommend this product

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant features, easy to use, highly recommend Does everything you expect and does it well. Very light inner tray, much easier to use than ceramic tray. I've cooked lasagna sauces, searing the mince, the slow cooking the mince for four hours, perfecto. I've used it to warm BBQ chickens that has been left in fridge for a day, great for an easy meal. Made soup, everything is easy and it is so light to lift. Varying temps and a browning function and adjustable time, nothing is wanting. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Value for Money I bought mine a few months ago at RRP$199 but HN price matched a competitor at $149. I have never owned a SC prior as I am not a huge meat or casserole person myself. However I bought it for Meat which my OH loves. I've done lasagna, potato bake, quiches and fudge so far for myself - I didn't realise how much this machine can do! I love the design, keeps warm once cooked as well as the digital countdown and time adjustment is great. So easy to pull out and wipe clean afterwards.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delivers My Sear and Slow Cooker is great, I have used it several times since I bought it and I'm impressed with the sear capability as well as the slow cooking. The large capacity is just right for feeding a large family, or cooking two meals for very little effort. This is my new best friend in the kitchen and as the winter sports season approaches I foresee that it will become an invaluable tool for feeding my family healthy meals around our busy lives.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish looking, great features Brought this over a month ago, the feature to be able to sear/brown in the slow cooker inner dish is a real time saver, also leaves all the lovely juices in for added flavor. Less washing up is also a bonus. Easy to use and lovely looking appliance. Inner dish can go straight to the table to serve from. I high recommend this slow cooker

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product! I have only had this product for a few weeks, but love its flexibility between frying pan and slow cooker, and have lost count of how many times I have used it so far. Highly recommend it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product but I hope spares are available We have had this unit for approximately 18 months now and have cooked with this unit many times, however the non stick coating on the insert is starting to bubble. Is this available as a spare part? Also, we do not cook on high and only cook on low as high is too hot :-)
