Breville recommends safety first
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:
Important safeguards for your Breville ikon™ Blender

• To protect against electric shock, do not
immerse the cord, plug or motor base in
water or any other liquid.
• Do not allow the cord to hang over the edge
a table or bench, touch hot surfaces or
become knotted.
• This appliance is not intended for use by
persons (including children) with reduced
physical, sensory or mental capabilities,
or lack of experience and knowledge,
unless they have been given supervision or
instruction concerning use of the appliance
by a person responsible for their safety.
• Children should be supervised to ensure that
they do not play with the appliance.
• It is recommended to regularly inspect
the appliance. Do not use the appliance if
the power supply cord, plug or appliance
becomes damaged in any way. Return the
entire appliance to the nearest authorised
Breville Service Centre for examination
and/or repair.
• Any maintenance other than cleaning should
be performed at an authorised Breville
Service Centre.
• This appliance is for household use only. Do
not use in moving vehicles or boats. Do not
use outdoors. Do not use this appliance for
anything other than its intended use. Misuse
may cause injury.
• The installation of a residual current device
(safety switch) is recommended to provide
additional safety protection when using
electrical appliances. It is advisable that a
safety switch with a rated residual operating
current not exceeding 30mA be installed in
the electrical circuit supplying the appliance.

Tips on how to use your Breville ikon™ Blender
Do
Don’t
• Use Low speeds (1-2 – Mix and Chop) for
drink or cocktail making and emulsions such
as mayonnaise, dressings, marinades and
foods that require mixing until just combined,
such as batters.
• Use High speeds (4-5 – Puree) for pureeing
soups and aerating liquids.
• Use ‘PULSE’ for foods that only require short
bursts of power such as chopping nuts.
• Ensure all foods are cut into cubes
(approximately. 2-3cm squares) where
appropriate to achieve an even result.
• Do not put more than 2 cups of 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
inner lid opening if desired.
• Thick mixtures puree more efficiently if the
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 blender and scrape
down the sides of the blender jug with a
plastic or rubber spatula, once or twice
during blending. Do not use metal utensils as
they may damage the blades or blender jug.
• Do not blend a heavy mixture for more than
10 seconds. For normal blending tasks, for
example, mayonnaise, dressings etc., do not
operate for longer than 1 minute at one time
without turning off the blender and stirring
the ingredients, and then continue blending.
• Do not operate the blender without having
the blender lid in position. To add additional
ingredients whilst blending, remove the inner
lid and place ingredients through the opening
in the lid. When adding oil or other liquids
during operation, slowly pour through the
small holes on either side of the inner lid.
• Do not fill the blender jug above the ‘MAX’
line. When the blender jug is filled at or
near the ‘MAX’ line, place one hand on the
blender lid to avoid displacement of the lid
during operation.
• Do not place any objects, other than food
or liquid, into the blender whilst the motor
is running.
• Do not use the blender to store food.
• The blender will not knead dough or
mash potatoes.
• Do not remove the blender jug while the
blender is operating. Always make sure the
blender is off by pressing the ‘Power’ button,
the lights will turn off. Switch off the power
at the power outlet and unplug the power
cord from the power outlet.
• Do not overload the blender with more
than the specified quantity of ingredients
as doing so could cause the motor to stall.
Turn the blender off by pressing the ‘Power’
button on the control panel, the lights will
turn off. Switch off the power at the power
outlet and unplug the cord. Remove a
portion of the mixture from the blender
jug before continuing.
• Do not place hot or boiling ingredients into
the blender; allow to cool before placing into
the blender jug.

Trouble shooting guide
Problem
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 / ICE CRUSH’
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 motor is protected from burning out by an
automatic, temperature operated, cut-out switch. If
the blender is overloaded or operated continuously for
too long, the motor may overheat. If this happens, the
safety cut-out switch will prevent the blender from
operating. To operate the blender again, you must
switch off at the power outlet, unplug and allow to cool
for approximately 30 minutes. Once the motor has fully
cooled, it is ready for use again.
