Breville recommends safety first
Breville recommends safety first (continued)
We at Breville are very safety conscious. We design and manufacture consumer products with the
safety of you, our valued customer, foremost in mind. In addition we ask that you exercise a degree of
care when using any electrical appliance and adhere to the following precautions:
• Care should be taken when removing the
food from the food processor by ensuring
the motor, processing blade and discs have
completely stopped before disassembling.
Ensure the Speed Selection Dial is turned to
the Off ‘O’ position, the appliance is switched
off at the power outlet and unplugged,
before removing the lid from the bowl. The
processing bowl should then be unlocked
from the motor body and the processing
blade or disc holder carefully removed before
attempting to remove the processed food.
• Do not operate the food processor
continuously for periods longer than 3 minutes
on any setting or if processing a heavy load.
None of the recipes in this booklet should
require processing for longer than 3 minutes
and none are considered a heavy load. If the
food processor is operated continuously for
too long, it should be allowed to rest for 2530 minutes before recommencing.
