Not only will this easy-to-use machine make perfect fluffy rice every time, but it also takes the hassle out of preparing rich and creamy risotto, and can sauté too.

An electronic controller ensures that the temperature is precise throughout the stir-free risotto cycle, while the gently simmering stock agitates the rice grains. The sauté feature means you can also brown mushrooms, onions, meat and more to include in the risotto.

Or use this versatile machine as a 10-cup rice cooker, and the machine turns itself to a “keep warm” setting once the rice is its fluffiest. The included steamer tray lets chefs steam vegetables for a healthier option. The generous four-quart capacity yields 20 cups of cooked rice.

Settings include:
  • Stir-free risotto setting
  • Sauté setting
  • Low/high slow-cook setting
  • Automatic keep-warm setting
  • Steam setting
Machine comes with steaming tray, measuring cup and plastic rice paddle (not shown). Durable tempered-glass, stainless steel and nonstick construction makes this a wonderful addition to any home. 10 cups uncooked, 20 cups cooked rice. 1¾ lbs.; 10" h x 12¾" l x 11½" w.

I conquered risotto!!!
Ok...my update: I have battled risotto many a time and have never been quite happy with the result. Too dente or mushy. Tonight, right out of the box...I have conquered! The saute feature was wonderful for browning some hungarian sausage bits and zucchini. 1.75 cups of arborio rice to 1 cup wine and 4 cups warm chicken stock...and walked away. 30min later: added my parm cheese, veggie/sausage mixture, stirred done. A little sprinkle of fresh parsley, a couple of glasses of white wine= lovely dinner with my hubby. The pot was lighter than I expected, will have to see if it will replace my beloved crockpot on the counter, but so far worth my purchase. By the way: clean up was a breeze. The nonstick surface did not cause the overnight soaking in the sink problem that the stove top version previously done on regular basis. It cleaned up in a snap. LOVED IT!!

All in One Perfection
My wife and I have owned this product for a little over a month now, and we use it almost every day. The steam feature quickly and easily steams vegetables. The crock pot feature makes all the slow cook recipes we love, and the risotto feature is unbelievably good.

I HIGHLY recommend this product to anyone who likes to cook

Has Earned Place of Honor on My Counter
I bought this mainly for the Risoto feature and I am so pleased. I love Risoto, but have never had the patience to make it often. This product makes amazing Risoto and its so easy. The first time I used it I cooked the Risoto below and steamed Sole (fish) and carrots in the basket above. It was great. I have since made white and brown rice, and Farro in it. This product has a permanent place of honor on my kitchen counter

Super Easy and Super Tasty Risotto
The risotto I whipped up in the Breville Risotto maker was a big hit this weekend. So big, in fact, that I made it twice! I loved that I could saute some chicken, onions and garlic in the same pot I made the risotto. And making the risotto was a snap. Just press the risotto button and walk away. About 25 minutes later I had perfect risotto. I mixed back in the chicken with a little parmasan cheese, pesto and watercress and a tasty meal was ready to serve

worth the space on counter
I saw this in the catalog and got it immediately. Great rice cooker and crock pot. Haven't tried the risotto feature yet but this wasn't a deal beaker when I bought it. Cleans up easily and crock pot is perfect size for a couple who like leftovers! My old rice cooker and crock pot are headed to my next yard sale!

LOVE it!!
I have made risotto , I have made rice and I have made a stew in this cooker. Each dish turned out perfectly. The risotto was as good as what I make by hand. I have now given away my crock-pot and rice cooker. This cooker's all-in-one features are top of the line

multitasker
Alton Brown of Good Eats (Food Network) says a good kitchen tool must be a multitasker. Well that's the Risotto Plus in spades! I've had a week now and have used the steamer function, the saut? function, and the slow cook one. The latter two I used to make a pot roast and I now have a one stop pot roast pan.
Yes, it seems expensive, but it's worth every penny. It's well made, easy to operate, holds its heat better than a crockpot, and cleans very easy

Amazing Purchase
I've spent years waiting for an appliance that works like this one. I've thrown out single use (rice cooker, slow cooker, etc) small appliances when downsizing, and waited for someone to make one appliance that could do it all, and this is it! I've used this pot on every setting and across the board it produces great results, with the rissoto being my biggest surprise. I made a recipe that I've made many times in the past in the traditional manner and Iit produced an equally great rissoto, and with no hastle! AMAZING

I was a disbeliever - NO MORE! Great risotto!
I bought this device because I needed a new rice cooker and the risotto feature, if it worked, would be awesome. The reviews are all great, but risotto is my favorite food, and I had a REALLY hard time believing it could produce the perfect al dente texture required.

The rice making feature, perfect. Fluffy, separated grains, not too mushy. I've used it a few times with consistent results.

I just tried the risotto feature for the first time tonight. And one word of warning. If you are expecting to throw all ingredients in and have risotto come out the other end, you will be disapointed. You do have to saute the onions, allow the wine to absorb, etc. HOWEVER, you do NOT have to stand over it waiting for the rice to cook, stirring constantly for 18-20 minutes.

I used a recipe in the Breville book for guidance on proportions, but my own stock recipe and stir-ins (tomatoes, cream and pureed shrimp, topped with sauteed shrimp). It was al dente, delicious and I did it all while on a work teleconference in about 30 mins. AMAZING

Fantastic rice cooker
We've made risotto twice with this cooker and it came out perfect both times. So much easier than making it the old fashioned way!

Great Product
An really enjoying all the functions of this product! The risotto function is fantastic as are the slow cook and steam functions. My only criticism is that the rice tables seems to be inaccurate as the rice seems to boil dry the. The keep warm function after the rice has cooks makes a strange crunchy skin on my rice...user error?! Also I wish that there was a button for 'keep warm.'

Excellant product
This product is the ultimate multi-tasker. Yeah, it makes very good risotto. But that is not enough reason to buy an appliance. This cooking-jewel sautes, steams, gets hot enough to boil pasta, slow-cooker setting and an over-drive high gear for the slow cooker as well. The design is sleek and sturdy. I have purchased 5 of these cookers; 3 for my adult children for Christmas and 1 for the office and 1 for my boss. You may never use your stove top again

Versatile Machine!
I didn't believe an appliance could make risotto. I gave up making risotto because of all the time and attention it took. I took a chance that this would work and IT DOES! Not only that, it sautes, slow cooks, steams vegies, and makes regular rice. My only complaint (hence 4 stars) is it is huge. It takes up twice the space on my counter as my old rice cooker. OK it does replace four other appliances, but it is still much more than I need. If you have a big family or throw parties, this is a great addition to your kitchen. It's a little too much for me, but still worth it to make risotto again without adding broth every 5 minutes and stirring for half-an-hour. Sooo easy

This product is everything it is advertised
The Rissoto features are so great that we had a difficult time using the other features. The Rissoto is so good and so easy to prepare we just kept cooking it over & over. We have began using the other features and they are just as great. This was supposed to be my birthday gift as well as Christmas present from my wife, but she decided to give it to me early and I believe she is happier than I am!

Risotto heaven!
I bought this risotto maker yesterday and gave it a try the same evening. I have to say the risotto came out PERFECT. I had to read the instructions a couple of time but once I got it, no problems.
I'm using it again tonight for my New Years dinner with friends. Lobsters & risotto, perfection. Run out and get this appliance it's worth the money

Just OK
Others have detailed the features and uses for the Risotto Plus, so I won't repeat that. I received this as a gift and while it certainly does make risotto, and there is much less stirring involved, that's the best I can say.

We made Risotto Milanese from the included recipe booklet. Instructions were clear, but it did involve almost 50% hands-on time, which was a bit disappointing. The risotto was undercooked when the machine switched over to WARM, so had to add more chicken broth, then wait before adding the parm. The final product was no better than my slow cooker recipe, which takes longer but requires no hands-on time.

Next up was white rice. The rice was good, although only 15 minutes on WARM left it a bit crunchy around the edges and on the bottom. I would not want to keep it warm for an hour or longer.

Clean-up was easy and the instructions were clear and easy to follow. It seems well built. My overall impression is that this is a decent product, but not as good as I expected from Breville

Breville's hidden gem
I enjoy rice dishes and have several rice cooker cookbooks and a Zojirushi fuzzy logic rice cooker. There are many recipes that call for an initial saute before adding wet ingredients, such as risottos and pilafs. However my fuzzy logic cooker shuts off during the middle of the saute and must be cooled down before it can be restarted. This requires me to saute the ingredients in a separate pan on the stovetop before transferring to the rice cooker.

In contrast, the Breville Risotto Plus does a superb job of sauteing, for as long as I need, before adding the wet ingredients and resetting to risotto or rice/steam for pilafs. It gives that perfect sizzle when onions or meat are sauteed. I have made the Risotto Milanese in the owner's manual with amazing creamy results. From other rice cooker cookbooks, I have made Italian sausage with mushroom risotto, and Arroz con pollo (a Spanish rice and chicken pilaf) with excellent results. With a perfect saute, I can now make these kinds of dishes easily.

I haven't rated this based on plain rice or the slow cooker features because I already have a programmable slow cooker and a fancy fuzzy logic rice cooker. But for people who don't have those, the additional settings make this an excellent multi-use appliance

So versatile!
I love that this is a risotto and rice maker plue it sautes, steams and is a slow cooker. My only wish is that it had the warm setting as a button, not just an automatic feature since some slow cooker recipes call for a while on high then low after, and then I'd like to switch it to warm on my own

Second One
The second risotto maker is great. Unfortunately, the one I ordered didn't work at all. I plugged it in and no heat.
Thank you to Sur La Table because even though the Breville instructions are not to return to store, and even though I had ordered it online, my store here in Houston, gladly exchanged it.
I am really impressed with this appliance and so glad I didn't just say forget it when the first one didn't work

Risotto!!!
I love Risotto. I bought this hoping to make a risotto that was good. I tried it for the first time and it turned out better than my favorite risotto I get from this wonderful Italian restaurant. I no longer have to go there. Mine turned out so much better. I had ingredients in the house that I thought I would want in the risotto and just started one step at a time without anything prepared. I sauteed the onion and added chicken stock instead of wine because I didn't have any. While that was absorbing I started to cut up the vegetables, then I added the remaining chicken stock with some heavy cream to make up the difference for the missing wine. I let that cook for 20 minutes and added the red pepper, zucchini, yellow squash and asparagus. Final touch was to add 1/4 cup parmesan cheese 5 minutes before it finished. I didn't sautee the shrimp in the risotto maker because you have to pull them out to cook the risotto. I did do those separately in a pan. This way they were still hot when I served the meal. But this is a nice feature for the onion and if you were to sautee meat for the slow cook option. I am thrilled after one use and made a place for easy use in the front of my cabinet
