HINTS & TIPS
Problem
Easy Solution
Motor doesn’t start or blade
doesn’t rotate
Check that the blender jug and lid are securely into
position.
Check that the ‘Power’ button and selected function or
speed setting is illuminated.
Check that the power plug is securely inserted into the
power outlet and switched on.
Food is unevenly chopped
Either too much food is being blended at one time or
the pieces are too large. Try cutting food into smaller
pieces of even size and processing a smaller amount
per batch.
For best results, the food should be chopped into pieces
no larger than 2cm.
Food is chopped too fine or
is watery
Blend for shorter period of time. Use ‘PULSE’ function
for more control.
Food sticks to blade and jug
The mixture may be too thick. Try adding more liquid
to the mixture and / or use a slower speed.
Blender Overloaded
The Breville Kinetix® Blender features a motor
protection feature. If the motor is being overloaded the
motor will stop and the overload warning icon on the
LCD will start to flash. Once the icon stops flashing the
blender has now cooled down and you will be able to
use the blender as per instructions. At this point the
blender will be in standby mode and you will only need
to press the function / button that you require to start
blending again. However if you have turned the blender
off you will need to switch it back on and only if the
icon has stop flashing commence blending as usual.
• We recommend removing a portion of the mixture,
cutting food into smaller pieces or processing smaller
amounts per batch.
14
HINTS & TIPS
Do’s and Don’ts
Don'ts
Do’s
• Do not use metal utensils as they may
damage the blades or blender jug.
• Use the function 3 - 4 for drink or cocktail
making, emulsions such as mayonnaise,
dressings, marinades and foods that
require mixing until just combined, such
as batters, also for pureeing soups and
aerating liquids.
• Use a combination of the
Blend/Pulse functions to suit the foods
being processed.
• Do not operate a heavy mixture for more
than 10 seconds. For normal blending
tasks, for example, mayonnaise, dressings
etc., do not operate for longer than 2
minutes at one time without turning
off the Breville Blender and stirring the
ingredients, and then continue blending.
• Use the Smoothie function to blend
fruits, ice cream and yogurts into thick
smoothies, whips and milkshakes.
• Do not operate the Breville Blender
without having the blender lid in position.
To add additional ingredients during
blending, remove the inner lid and place
ingredients through the opening in the lid.
• Use the Ice Crush function for foods that
only require short bursts of power such as
chopping nuts and crushing ice.
• Do not place any objects, other than food
or liquid, into the Breville Blender while
the motor is running.
• Use the Ice Crush function with short
bursts of power, when blending drinks
containing ice cubes or frozen fruit.
• Do not use the blender jug to store food.
• Ensure all foods are cut into cubes
(approx. 2cm square) where appropriate to
achieve an even result.
• Do not remove the blender jug while
the Breville Blender is operating. Always
make sure the blender is switched off by
pressing the ‘Power’ button, switch off
the power at the power outlet and unplug
the power cord from the power outlet.
• Do not put more than 2 cups of warm
ingredients into the blender before
blending commences. After the blending
process has begun and the blades are
turning you may slowly add another 1½
cups of ingredients through the opening
in the lid if desired.
• Thick mixtures puree more efficiently if
the Breville Blender is ¼ to ½ full.
• When using several ingredients, place
liquid ingredients in the blender jug
before solid ingredients, unless specified
in the recipe. When blending thick or
dry mixtures it may be necessary to stop
the Breville Blender and scrape down
the sides of the blender jug with a plastic
or rubber spatula, once or twice during
blending.
• The blender will not knead dough or mash
potatoes.
• Do not overload the Breville Blender
with more than the specified quantity of
ingredients as doing so could cause the
motor to stall. Once the icon stops flashing
the blender has now cooled down and
you will be able to use the blender as per
instructions. At this point the blender
will be in standby mode and you will only
need to press the function/button that you
require to start blending again. However
if you have turned the blender off you will
need to switch it back on and only if the
icon has stop flashing commence blending
as usual.
• Do not place hot or boiling ingredients
into the Breville Blender; allow to cool
before placing into the blender jug.

power cord.
NOTE
Do not use abrasive scouring pads
or cleaners when cleaning the motor
base as they may scratch the surface.
CLEANING THE BLENDER JUG,
BLADES, LID AND INNER LID
When cleaning the blender jug it is always
a good idea to clean straight away to avoid
food sticking to the blades and jug. Placing
about 200ml of warm soapy water into the
jug with the lid on and inner lid in place you
can blend this water for 5-10 seconds on a
low speed which will help clean the blades
and jug. Then rinse jug in cold water and dry
thoroughly.

Blades are sharp please use care when
cleaning around the blades.
The blender lid may be washed in the
dishwasher on the top shelf only and on a
standard wash cycle. The blender jug may be
placed in the bottom shelf of the dishwasher
on a standard cycle only.
Removing stubborn or strong
food stains and odours
Strong smelling foods such as garlic, fish
and some vegetables such as carrots may
leave an odour or stain on the blender jug
and lid. To remove, soak blender jug and lid
for 5 minutes in warm soapy water. Then
wash with a mild detergent and warm water,
rinse well and dry thoroughly.
Storage
Store your Breville Blender upright with the
blender jug, lid and inner lid assembled and
inserted on the motor base or beside it. Do
not place anything on top.
WARNING
The blending blades are extremely
sharp. Avoid any contact with fingers
and hands. Use caution when handling
and storing.
