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.

Customer Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Ever slow cooker I don't usually write reviews, but thought I must for this slow cooker as it really is the best thing I own. I was doubtful about the Sear function but this is the best part! It browns everything perfectly - then there's no need to transfer meat etc, just switch to slow cook and it does all the work for you. Every recipe has been spot on and it cooks very accurately. Operating it is very straight forward and I love the fact that the insert is so light weight. It makes cleaning up a breeze. Well done Sunbeam!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fabulous features BUT We have had several of these appliances and use it several times a week, however we have found that the cooker element starts to fail shortly out of warranty - as in our current cooker 12 month warranty expired in July 2018 and 5 weeks later the element is now failing. After purchasing 2 and now having them both replaced under the ACCC consumer laws, next time we will not buy this product again. Such a shame that Sunbeam have had an excellent reputation for many decades and yet they now can’t produce a product such a fabulous cooker that lasts more than 13 months.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use! Have used a couple times since I purchased a couple weeks ago. Love being able to sear/ brown in the same pot for slow cooking. Happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to sear the meat and slow cook in one pan I like the idea that I can sear the meat and then slow cook all in the same pan, and it's automatically keep warm after cooking. The handle doesn't getting hot and easy to lift up. The non stick pan is also easy to wash. Nothing wrong so far!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lifesaver I used this many times following the birth of my grandson, to help out his mum and dad. A home cooked dinner was ready for them whenever bub gave them a break. It really was a lifesaver. I enjoyed cooking with this so munch that I went out and bought one for myself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Has everything I need to set and go! Bought this about a month ago and it's been great. I would set previous slow cookers and come home to a completely ruined meal. The Sunbeam SecretChef - our meat has been so juicy and tender and can't fault it! Best purchase I've made in a long time!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Multi Cooker I bought the SecretChef back in March and use it at least 5 times a week. This is the most versatile appliance I have ever used, and because of this, I have minimised the appliances in my cupboard!. It is so easy to use. I use the browning section regularly, because it's like using an electric frypan, but better. I've roasted pork, slow cooked chicken, made my favourite meal.. sausages in tomato gravy, made soup, and casseroles, plus more. You can't go wrong with this product. I Love it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Cooker+++++ It was time to upgrade so I decided on this model, very impressive, love the timer and searing option, have only used once since buying but looking forward to many more during the winter months.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Searing elements not working after 18months I was given this slow cooker sear as a present 18 months ago. It was working beautifully loved that I could brown then cook. However the 20min timer never worked for me. Something I could live without as the slow cooker timer worked fine. However 18months on the searing elements is not heating up past the standed heat of the slow cooker. I can not get a sear on any of my food even just putting one bit of meat in wont brown it only stew in it's own juices. Very disappointed as I have no proof of purchase either does my mother in law who purchased it for me. Now it just lives in the cupboard as I cant sear in it and too much effort browning food in large cast iron pot then transferring it all in slower cooker. Might as well cook it all in pot. This is a real shame as I loved being able to sear the meat at night add my stock and let it cook over night.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Good while it lasted does not work after 2 years. worked great until it didnt. started boiling food and rendering it uneatable. ruined my last 3 meals until no longer decided to use it again. contacted customer care and was told there was nothing they could do as it was out of warranty period. very poor. this is not a regulrly used appliance and i would guess that it has been used no more than 20 times.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cooking Pan is very easily marked/scratched Ive had my Secret Chef for a month and used it a handful of times. The cooking pan is covered in black marks from use of a wooden spoon. Unfortunately, my partner also used a tablespoon to serve himself one night and the cooking pan scratched straight away. I just think for the price of the product the cooking pan should be more durable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More than just a slow cooker. I have been so happy with my Secret Chef Sear/Slow Cooker that I bought this one for an engagement present. I love that I can brown my meat in the same pan as I am slow cooking it in. No need for more washing up. Also, with the digital timer, I now don’t need to rush home to turn it on. I can return from work and dinner is ready.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great temperature controls Great slow cooker the only negative I have is the nonstick surface on the insert is very poor. I purchased a second cooker because I couldn’t replace the bowl insert and hoping it was me not looking after the non stick correctly but it’s doing the same. As good as the cooker is I won’t buy another one due this problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this slow cooker Fantastic one pot cooking. Browning meat first and then you can add the rest of your ingredients . let it cook and it will keep it warm for you until you get home.unlike other slow cookers I have had in the past this one doesn’t seem to leave the food with a lot of extra water or juices that make the food very runny.
Date published: 2019-07-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use, love the browning function This is my first slow cooker and I love it. It’s simple to use and does everything i want it to. I love the browning feature and i like that it automatically switches to warming after slow cook timer is finished. I also love it can go in the dishwasher. Very happy with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ability to sear I bought the Sunbeam about 3 years ago and what wonderful product. Ability to cook a casserole, leg of lamb and the Christmas cake only problem is the bubbling and peeling of the coating on 3 crock inserts. The original, a $70 replacement, a free replacement and now I need a fourth.
Date published: 2018-08-13
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great idea Great idea of being able to cook all in one pot without requiring a fry pan first to brown. However I have had this product for a year and a half and the coating on the pot is all bubbles up and coming off. But disappointing as i did love this kitchen item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great slow cooker I bought this about a month ago and have cooked several different dishes. All turned out perfectly! I have had a few different slow cookers before but this is by far the most reliable with cooking time and results. Brilliant buy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome slow cooker Love this slow cooker because of the searing function. Have only had it a couple of weeks and have made lots in it. Cannot wait for winter to come as my slow cooker will be used a lot. Recommend this slow cooker to everyone :)
