Yes! The insert goes directly on the stove and browns meats and vegies beautifully, then fits directly in the main unit for slow cooking. There is not a separate setting for roasting, but you can slow cook a large cut of meat with sufficient sauce in this slow cooker.

This irreplaceable kitchen tool will free everyone—even beginners—from any fears of the pressure-cooking process. It’s simple-to-use. Chefs can sauté and brown vegetables and meats directly in the insert, then switch to pressure-cooking for maximum flavor.
Cooker features Low and High pressure settings, progress arrows to show when system is pressurizing, and a display to show remaining cooking time. Unit automatically switches to keep-warm function when cooking is complete, then cooks can release pressure naturally or with the quick-release option.
Fast and Energy Efficient
Utilize more pressure, higher cooking temperatures and steam to cook foods in one-third of the time traditional cooking takes, with delicious customizable results every time.
Healthy and Flavorful
Vitamins and minerals are retained, rich colors are preserved, natural flavors are intensified, and less seasoning is required.
The cooker’s pressure won’t increase if it’s improperly operated, and once the pressure increases the lid can’t be opened. Electronic sensors ensure that pressure remains within a safe range, and at the end of cooking the lid can’t be unlocked until pressure is completely released.
