ASSEMBLY & OPERATION
of your Breville Scraper Mixer Pro
ASSEMBLY & OPERATION
Assembling the mixer
Before using your Breville Scraper Mixer
Pro for the first time, remove any packaging
material and promotional labels. Ensure the
speed control dial is in the ‘Off’ position, the
mixer is switched off at the power outlet and
the power cord is unplugged.
Remove the mixing bowl, beater, whisk and
dough hook and wash in warm soapy water
with a soft cloth. Rinse and dry thoroughly.
The bowl and the attachments may be
washed in the dishwasher.
NOTE
When first using your Breville Scraper
Mixer Pro, you may notice an odour
coming from the motor. This is normal
and will dissipate with use.
3. Insert the mixing bowl into the bowl
locking recess of the mixer stand and
turn clockwise until the bowl locks
securely into place.
Attaching the bowl
1. Place the mixer base on a level, dry
surface such as a bench top. The mixer
motor head should be in the horizontal
(closed) position. Raise the mixer
motor head by depressing the tilt
back hinge button.
NOTE
To remove or insert the mixing bowl,
the mixer motor head must be raised
and locked into the open position.
2. Lift the mixer motor head up until it tilts
back and locks into the open position.
11
ASSEMBLY & OPERATION
Attaching the scraper beater,
FLAT BEATER, DOUGH HOOK OR
WHISK to the mixer motor head
1. Ensure the mixer motor head is in the
raised/open position. Align the groove
in the top of the mixing attachment with
the locking pin on the spindle extending
down from the mixer motor head.
2. Push the attachment upwards and turn
clockwise until it locks securely onto the
locking pin on the spindle (see Fig. 1).
NOTE
When ingredients are in the mixing
bowl, the scraper beater may make a
slight noise as it scrapes the sides and
bottom of the bowl. This is normal and
should not cause concern.
Do not turn the mixer on with the
scraper beater in place if the mixing
bowl is empty. This will cause the
scraper beater to make a loud noise as
it scrapes the bowl.
Operating the mixer
Fig. 1
Planetary Mixing Action
By replicating a similar mixing action
used by commercial mixers in bakeries
and patisseries, The Breville Scraper
Mixer Pro head rotates around the bowl
whilst rotating the beater in the opposite
direction. This ensures a superior and
thorough mixing result without the need
for a rotating bowl.
3. Lower the mixer motor head by
depressing the tilt back button and
gently pushing the mixer motor head
down until it locks into the horizontal
(closed) position (see Fig. 2).
Fig. 2
4. The splash guard can now be assembled

the pour spout.
12
1. Ensure the speed control dial is set to
the ‘Off’ position, plug the cord into a
220-240v power outlet and switch the
power ‘ON’ at the power outlet. The
illuminated LED speed indicator band
will flash and the Count Up/Down timer
will display “0:00.” The mixer is now
ready to be used.
ASSEMBLY & OPERATION
NOTE
The count-up timer
If the mixer has not been used for 3
minutes it will automatically change
from 'Stand by mode' to a power
saving 'OFF mode' and the illuminated
LED will switch off. To exit 'OFF mode'
and begin mixing, turn the dial to the
selected speed or press one of the
count up/down timer buttons.
The count-up timer is especially useful
to gauge mixing time. You can monitor
the time it takes to thoroughly mix the
ingredients, so that the next time you mix
the same ingredients you can set the countdown timer for the specific time.
The count-up timer will automatically
begin counting up as soon as the dial is
rotated from ‘Off’ to one of the speeds.
When the dial is turned to "Pause" the total
time will be displayed on the LCD and will
flash. When the dial is turned to "OFF", the
LCD display will reset back to "0:00".
2. Add ingredients to the mixing bowl as
indicated in the recipe.
Always begin mixing by selecting a low
speed setting on the speed control dial.
This will prevent ingredients splattering.
Increase the speed as suited to the
mixing task. The speed setting can be
adjusted during operation by moving
the dial clockwise for the main mixing
settings. Use the mixing guide in this
booklet as a reference.
If necessary, stop the mixer during
operation and scrape any food mixture
down the sides of the mixing bowl with
a spatula.
NOTE
Always turn the Mixer off if you need
to scrape the bowl during use, and
then switch back on and continue
mixing.
13
ASSEMBLY & OPERATION
The count-down timer
NOTE
The count-down timer is especially useful
for any recipe that specifies the length
of time ingredients should be mixed.
For example, if a recipe reads, “beat for 3
minutes,” you can set the count-down timer
to 3 minutes by pressing the up/down
arrows. After 3 minutes of mixing, an alarm
will sound and the motor will automatically
turn off. The count-down timer will flash
“OFF”. The control dial must to be rotated to
the “Off” position to reset the timer and to
continue mixing.
To set the count down timer, press the up or
down arrows until the desired mixing time is
displayed on the LCD screen.
The maximum time displayed on the
timer is 59:59 (fifty nine minutes,
fifty-nine seconds). The mixer will
automatically switch Off at 59
minutes 59 seconds. The control
dial needs to be rotated to the “Off”
position to reset the timer and to
continue mixing.
NOTE
Press and hold the arrows down to
scroll through the timer setting
more quickly.
Rotate the dial clockwise to select the
desired speed and to begin mixing. When
the timer has finished counting down,
“0:00” will flash on the LCD screen and a
beep will sound to notify you that the time
has expired. The mixer will automatically
turn the motor off. The control dial must
be rotated to the 'OFF' position to reset the
timer and to continue mixing.
14
Pause Mode
While mixing, at any stage, you can rotate
the control dial to the “pause” setting. This
will turn the motor off and “pause” the
timer. This enables you to assess the mixing
progress or add additional ingredients
without effecting the timer.
For example, if you are mixing using the
‘count-up timer’ mode, you can rotate the
control dial from one of the mixing speeds
to “pause”. The mixer motor will stop and
the timer will “pause”. Once ready, you can
rotate the dial back to one of the mixing
speeds, the timer will continue to countup from the exact time it was paused.
Alternatively, if you have turned the mixer to
“pause” you can then reset the timer to 0:00
by rotating the dial to “Off” position.
If using the “pause” function in ‘countdown timer’ mode, you can suspend the
timer at any stage during the count-down
process by rotating the control dial to the
“pause” setting. To continue mixing in the
‘count-down timer’ mode, simply rotate the
dial back into one of the mixing speeds or
alternatively to the “Off” position to reset
the timer to 0:00.
ASSEMBLY & OPERATION
MOTOR HEAD SAFETY CUT-OFF
The mixer is equipped with a motor head
safety cut-off. If the motor head is lifted at
any time while the mixer motor is switched
on, the safety cut-off will automatically

mode, the LED indicator band will flash and
the error message “E2” will flash on the LCD
screen and the buzzer will “beep” 3 times.
Electronic Protection
CUT-OFF – Current Overload
The mixer is equipped with an electric
protection cut-off and will automatically
stop operating if the motor is stalled or
overloaded. This is normally a result of
excessive ingredients being processed at
one time. Should the mixer go into this
mode, the LED indicator band will flash and
the error message “E1” will flash on the LCD
screen and the buzzer will “beep” 3 times.
If this error occurs, turn the speed control
dial to the ‘Off’ position, switch the
appliance off at the power outlet and unplug
the cord. Wait at least 15 minutes before
restarting the mixer.
Disassembling the mixer
1. When mixing is complete, turn the
speed control dial to the ‘Off/Stand by’
position, switch the appliance off at the
power outlet and unplug the cord.

Recipes in this instruction book have been
developed using Australian metric weights
and measurements.
The New Zealand tablespoon is 5ml
less than the Australian tablespoon, so
care should be taken when measuring
ingredients to compensate for the variance.
For example, 1 Australian tablespoon
= 1 New Zealand tablespoon + 1 New
Zealand teaspoon.
It is important to note that New Zealand
ingredients, especially flour and yeast, can
differ from Australian equivalents. In the
Vital Ingredients section of this booklet,
suitable New Zealand products have been
listed. We suggest these New Zealand
products be substituted for the Australian
products in the Recipe Section.
Metric weighing scales
For consistent results it is recommended
that a Breville kitchen scale (for details
visit www.breville.com.au) be used to weigh
larger quantities as they provide greater
accuracy than measuring cups.
Tare (zero) the scales with the container in
position then spoon or pour ingredients in
until the desired weight is achieved.
Metric measuring cups
and spoons
If using graduated metric measuring cups,
it is important to spoon the dry ingredients
loosely into the required cup. Do not tap the
cup on the bench or pack the ingredients
into the cup unless otherwise directed. Level
the top of the cup with a knife. When using
graduated metric measuring spoons, level
the top of the spoon with a straight edged
knife or spatula.
Metric liquid measuring jugs
If using a graduated, metric measuring jug,
place jug on a flat surface and check for
accuracy at eye level.
NOTE
In general, water weighs the same in
grams as it measures in millilitres.

HINTS & TIPS
for your Breville Scraper Mixer Pro
HINTS & TIPS
For better bread making
• Do check the ingredients and read the
recipe before starting to bake.
• Do measure ingredients accurately
— weighed measurements are more
accurate than volume measurements.
• Do use bread flour unless recipe
states otherwise.
• Do check use-by-dates on ingredients.
• Do add ingredients in the order stated in
the recipe.
• Do store opened ingredients in
airtight containers.
• Do use ingredients at room temperature.
• Don’t use flour that contains a protein
level of less than 11%.
• Don’t use tableware cups, jugs or spoons
for measuring.
• Don’t use hot water or liquids.
• Don’t use self-raising flour to
make yeasted bread unless recipe
states otherwise.
• If you live in a high altitude area
above 900m you will probably need
to alter the yeast quantity in the bread
recipe. The higher the altitude, the
lower the air pressure and the faster the
dough will rise. Try reducing the yeast
by ¼ teaspoon.
• If the weather is hot and humid, reduce
the yeast by ¼ teaspoon to avoid over
rising of the dough.
• Flour properties can alter on a seasonal
or storage basis, so it may be necessary
to adjust the water and flour ratio. If the
dough is too sticky, add extra flour 1
tablespoon at a time if the dough is too
dry add extra water 1 teaspoon at a time.
A few minutes is needed for these extra
ingredients to be absorbed. Dough with
the correct amount of flour and water
should form into a smooth, round ball
that is damp to the touch but not sticky.
• When hand-shaping dough for rolls,
weigh each piece of dough for more
evenly sized rolls.
Sponging yeast
• Instant active dried yeast is used in the
recipes in this book however fresh or
compressed yeast can be substituted, if
required, for specific flavour or religious
dietary requirements.
• Fresh or compressed yeast needs to be
‘sponged’ (fermentation started) before
adding to the other ingredients.
• To substitute, use three times the
amount of fresh or compressed yeast for
the amount of dry yeast in a recipe.
• To sponge the yeast: Place the quantity
of fresh compressed yeast in the
quantity of (warmed) water from the
recipe together with 1 teaspoon sugar
and 1 teaspoon flour into a clean glass
bowl, stir to dissolve and cover with
plastic wrap. Allow to stand in a warm
area (30ºC) for about 30 minutes or
until the mixture starts to bubble and
froth. This mixture should be used
without delay.
Warm area for rising
• Yeast, either when sponging or in the
dough, requires warmth to rise.
• To create a ‘warm area’ for dough to rise,
place baking tray over a bowl of fairly
warm water, place prepared dough item
on baking tray, cover loosely with lightly
greased thicker-style plastic wrap or a
tea towel. Ensure kitchen is warm and
free of draughts. Allow the dough to rise
until doubled in size.
25
HINTS & TIPS
For better baking
• Check the ingredients and read the
recipe before starting to bake.
• Weigh and measure ingredients correctly.
• Variations may occur in raw ingredients
used so adjust other ingredients and
baking times if required.
• Preheat oven before starting recipe
preparation, this will ensure the
correct temperature is achieved before
baking starts.
• Temperatures and cooking times
may vary with some ovens so adjust
accordingly. If using a fan forced oven
reduce the temperatures in the recipes
by 10ºC.
• When mixing, start the mixer at a
lower speed then gradually increase to
the recommended speed in the recipe
especially when adding dry ingredients.
• When using smaller quantities turn off
the mixer from time to time and scrape
the bowl with a spatula.
• Ensure wire whisk and mixing bowl
are clean and free of fats when whipping
egg whites as these will impede aeration.
• Instead of greasing baking pans or trays,
line with baking paper where appropriate.
However, a little light greasing in pans
will keep the paper in place.
• Pre warm a measuring spoon in hot
water for easy measuring of golden
syrup or honey.
• Butter should be softened at room
temperature to make creaming butter
and sugar easier.
• Keep surfaces and ingredients chilled
when making, handling or rolling out
pastry. Butter for pastry making should
be kept refrigerated.
26
• Avoid stretching pastry when rolling
out as it will shrink when baking. Use
light, even strokes in one direction and
avoid pressing down hard on the rolling
pin. Where possible, rest pastry in the
refrigerator before baking.
• Eggs should be at room temperature to
give better volume when whipping
• Break eggs individually into another
container before adding to other
ingredients to avoid potential spoilage.
• Separate egg whites carefully to avoid
inclusion of egg yolks. Egg yolks contain
fat and will prevent successful whipping
of egg whites.
• Rinse beaten egg residue from whisk,
beater and mixing bowl or other utensils
with cold water immediately after use.
Using hot water will set the egg and
make removal difficult.
• Test if cakes are cooked at the end of
baking time by touching the top lightly,
the cake will spring back if cooked. A
fine skewer can also be inserted carefully

THE VITAL INGREDIENTS
for your Breville Scraper Mixer Pro
THE VITAL INGREDIENTS
For bread making
Flour is the most important ingredient used
for bread making. It provides food for the
yeast and gives structure to the loaf. When
mixed with liquid, the protein in the flour
starts to form gluten. Gluten is a network of
elastic strands that interlock to trap the gases
produced by yeast. This process increases as
the dough continues kneading and provides
the structure required to produce the weight
and shape of the baked bread.
White wheat flour sold as baker’s, bread
or plain flour may be used. Plain flour is
most readily available, however, best results
are obtained with flour at least 11% protein
content. For this reason, the recipes in this
book requiring bread flour have been made
using flour with 11% protein content. This
is normally indicated on the packaging. Do
not sift the flour or use self-raising flour for
bread making unless indicated in the recipe.
NOTE
When using a low-protein, plain, stone
ground or wholemeal flour the quality
of the bread can be improved by
adding gluten flour.
Baker’s or Bread Flour
There are several brands of bread or
bakers flour available nationally at larger
supermarkets.. It is a high protein, white
bread flour, with 11% protein.
NOTE
New Zealand only: ‘Elfin High Grade
White Flour’ or ‘Champion High Grade
Flour’. These are high protein, white
bread flours containing 12% protein.
Wholemeal wheat flour contains the bran,
germ and flour of the wheat grain. Although
breads baked with this type of flour will
be higher in fibre, the loaf may be heavier
in texture. Lighter textured bread can be
achieved by replacing 1 cup of wholemeal
flour with white bread flour.
Rye flour, popular for bread making, is low
in protein so it is essential to combine rye
flour with bread flour to make the bread rise
successfully. Rye flour is traditionally used
to make the heavy, dense Pumpernickel and
Black Breads.
Gluten flour is made by extracting the
gluten portion from the wheat grain. Adding
gluten flour can improve the structure and
quality of bread when using low-protein,
plain, stone ground and whole meal flour.
Bread mixes contain flour, sugar, milk, salt,
oil and other ingredients such as bread
improver. Usually only the addition of water
and yeast is required.
Bread mix brands such as ‘Laucke’, ‘Kitchen
Collection’, ‘Defiance’, and ‘Lowan’ are
available nationally from
major supermarkets.
For recipe information on these and
other brands of bread mix contact the
manufacturer listed on the package.
NOTE
New Zealand only: Bread mix brands
such as ‘Elfin’ are available.
Bread improvers are available nationally in
supermarkets and health food stores. The
ingredients in a bread improver are usually
a food acid such as ascorbic acid (Vitamin
C) and other enzymes (amylases) extracted
from wheat flours. Adding a bread improver
will help strengthen the dough resulting
in a loaf that is higher in volume, softer in
texture, more stable and has improved shelf
life qualities. A simple bread improver can
be a crushed unflavoured vitamin C tablet
added to the dry ingredients.
29
THE VITAL INGREDIENTS
Sugar provides sweetness and flavour,
browns the crust and produces food for
the yeast. White sugar, brown sugar, honey
and golden syrup are all suitable to use.
When using honey or golden syrup it must
be counted as additional liquid. We have
successfully tested granular ‘Splenda’ brand
low calorie sweetener as a sugar substitute.
NOTE
New Zealand only: Sugar can be
reduced for more improved results.
Powdered milk and milk products enhance
the flavour and increase the nutritional value
of bread. Powdered milk is convenient and
easy to use (store in an airtight container in
the refrigerator).
Low fat or skim milk powder can be used
with good results. Soy milk powder can also
be used but produces a denser loaf. Fresh
milk should not be substituted unless stated
in the recipe.
Salt is an important ingredient in bread
making. In the dough, salt increases
water absorption, improves kneading,
strengthens the gluten development and
controls fermentation of the yeast which
results in improved loaf shape, crumb
structure, crust colour, flavour and keeping
qualities. As salt inhibits the rising of bread
be accurate when measuring.
NOTE
New Zealand only: Salt can be reduced
for more improved results.
Fat adds flavour and retains the moisture.
Vegetable oils such as safflower, sunflower,
canola, etc. can be used. Butter or margarine
can be substituted for oil in recipes but may
give a yellow coloured crumb.
30
Yeast is used as the raising agent for the
breads and requires liquid, sugar and
warmth to grow and rise. Dried yeast has
been used in the recipes in this instruction
book where appropriate. Before using
dried yeast always check the use by date,
as stale yeast will prevent the bread from
rising. ‘Tandaco’ brand yeast (available
nationally in most supermarkets) was used
in the development of all yeasted recipes
contained in this book. Smaller packets of
bread mix usually contain sachets of yeast.
Larger bulk bags of bread mix usually do
not include the yeast sachets, however
the corresponding brand of yeast may be
purchased separately.
Some bulk and imported yeasts are more
active, therefore it is recommended to use less
of these yeasts. Yeast may also be more active
in hot weather. For information on other
brands of yeast relating to quantities contact
the manufacturer listed on the package.
NOTE
New Zealand only: We recommend the
use of ‘Elfin’ brand yeast.
Rapid rise yeast is a mixture of yeast and
bread improver. Brands will vary in strength.
If wishing to substitute for yeast in a recipe,
omit the bread improver. Rapid Rise yeasts
should not be used with Bread Mix as bread
improver is already included.
NOTE
New Zealand only: ‘Edmonds Surebake
Yeast’ is the most readily available
yeast product in New Zealand.
Water from the tap is used in all bread
recipes. If using water in cold climates or
from the refrigerator, allow water to come to
room temperature. Extremes of hot or cold
water will prevent the yeast activating.
THE VITAL INGREDIENTS
Eggs can be used in some bread recipes
and provide liquid, aid rising and increase
the nutritional value of the bread. They add
flavour and softness to the crumb and are
usually used in sweeter types of bread.
Other ingredients such as fruit, nuts,
chocolate chips, etc., required to remain
whole in the baked bread, should be
suspended in the dough. These ingredients
should be gradually added during the
kneading and before the dough rises for the
first time.
For more information about bread mixes
please contact the relevant number listed
below. Or refer to contact details on the
packaging of the bread.

For cake and pastry making
Flour, such as plain, self raising and
wholemeal, used for cake and pastry making
should be lower in protein (gluten) than
flour used for bread making.
Plain flour has a lower protein (gluten)
content and gives baked products, such
as cakes, muffins, pastries, scones and
pancakes, a softer texture.
Self–raising flour is a blend of plain flour and
raising agents such as baking powder. Self
raising flour can be used in recipes to replace
plain flour and baking powder. To make 1
cup self-raising flour sift together 1 cup plain
flour and 2 teaspoons baking powder.
Wholemeal flour contains more parts of the
whole wheat grain — flour, bran and wheat
germ — and can be used in muffins, breads
and pie cases but will have a denser texture.

Corn flour is made from maize (corn) and is
used in some baked products to give a finer
texture and can also be used as a starch to
thicken sauces and desserts.
Rice flour is derived from rice and is used to
give a finer texture in baked products such
as shortbread biscuits.
Baking powder is a mixture of cream of
tartar and bicarbonate of soda and is used as
a raising agent in baking.
Bicarbonate of soda also known as baking
soda is an ingredient in baking powder and
can be used as an additional raising agent or
to darken some baked products.
Butter will give particular flavour and soft
texture to baked products. Margarine can
replace butter to give a similar result. Oil
can be used in some baking to replace butter
but will give texture and flavour differences
— use only ¾ of the amount of butter.
Eggs should be at room temperature to
give better volume when making cakes and
sponges. Standard 60g eggs were used in
the recipes.
Milk should be full cream unless specified.
Light, low fat or skim milk can be used but
will give texture and flavour differences.
32
Sugar (white crystal sugar) is used to
give flavour, texture and colour to baked
products. Caster sugar is often used in
baking as it is easier to dissolve when
creaming butter and sugar. Brown sugar is
also easy to dissolve and can be used to give
a different flavour and texture. The large
crystals of raw sugar are slower to dissolve
and can be suitable for baked products such
as muffins.
Using the scraper beater
The Scraper Beater can be used for a variety
of mixing tasks. These include creaming
butter and sugar, pastry, cake and biscuit
batter, thin batter, icing and frosting. Due
to the efficient mixing action of the Scraper
Beater, the mixing time of many recipes
will be reduced. Refer to the chart below

THE VITAL INGREDIENTS
Issue
Tip
Choice of attachments
Use the beater for all mixing tasks. Use the whisk for all whipping
or aeration tasks. Use dough hook only for kneading bread dough.
Speed settings
Use the mixing guide to select a suitable mixing speed when
preparing recipes. Begin mixing at lowest speed then increase to
higher speed to prevent splattering.
Mixing
Mix for the recommended time in the recipe — avoid over mixing.
Should an object such as a spoon or spatula fall into the bowl
while mixing, immediately turn the mixer off, unplug at the power
outlet and remove the object.
Egg white
Be sure the whisk and bowl are completely clean and dry before use — a small amount of fat or egg yolk will affect
whipping performance.
Bread dough
Add liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients. Use Kneeding/
Folding setting to knead ingredients into a dough ball. DO NOT
place hands near dough hook when mixer is operating.
