Breville recommends safety first
At Breville we 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
Read all instructions
BEFORE USE AND SAVE FOR
FUTURE REFERENCE
• Do not place food or liquid directly
into the housing. Only the removable
cooking bowl is designed to contain
food or liquid.
• Carefully read all instructions before
operating and save for future reference.
• Always ensure the Risotto & Rice™ is
properly assembled before operating.
Follow the instructions provided in
this book.
• Remove and safely discard any
packaging material and promotional
labels before using the Risotto & Rice™
for the first time.
• To eliminate a choking hazard for young
children, remove and safely discard the
protective cover fitted to the power plug
of this appliance.
• Do not place the Risotto & Rice™ near the
edge of a bench or table during operation.
Ensure the surface is level, clean and free
of water and other substances.
• Do not use the Risotto & Rice™ on a sink
drain board.
• Do not place this appliance on or near
a hot gas or electric burner, or where it
could touch a heated oven.
• Never operate the Risotto & Rice™
without food and liquid in the removable
cooking bowl.
• Do not touch hot surfaces, use oven
mitts to remove the lid. Lift and remove
the lid carefully to avoid scalding from
escaping steam.
• Do not allow water from the lid to
drip into the housing, only into the
removable cooking bowl.
• Always have the glass lid placed
correctly into position on the Risotto
& Rice™ throughout operation of the
appliance unless stated in the recipe to
have it removed.
• Always operate the Risotto & Rice™ on a
stable and heat resistant surface.
• The glass lid has been specially treated
to make it stronger, more durable and
safer than ordinary glass, however it
is not unbreakable. If struck extremely
hard, it may break or weaken and could
at a later time shatter into many small
pieces without apparent cause.
• Use the removable cooking bowl
supplied with the Risotto & Rice™.
Do not use any other bowl inside the
housing. Do not use a damaged or
dented removable cooking bowl. If
damaged or dented, replace bowl before
using.
• Always ensure the power is switched off
at the power outlet and the power cord is
unplugged from the power outlet before
attempting to move the appliance,
when not in use and before cleaning or
storing. Allow all parts to cool before
disassembling for cleaning.
• Position the Risotto & Rice™ at a
minimum distance of 20cm away from
walls and provide adequate space above
and all sides for air circulation.
• Never plug in or switch on the Risotto
& Rice™ without having the removable
cooking bowl placed inside the housing.

How to Make Risotto
SAUTÉ Setting
1. Ensure exterior of the removable
cooking bowl is clean before placing it
in the housing (this will ensure proper
contact with the inner cooking surface).
2. Plug power cord into a 230-240-volt
power outlet and then switch the power
on at the power outlet, the warm light
will illuminate.
3. Press the MENU SELECTOR button to
the SAUTÉ setting. The red light will
flash for a few seconds, then the light
will permanently illuminate.
4. Cover with lid and allow to pre-heat for
approximately 2-3 minutes (do not preheat for longer than 5 minutes).
5. Add oil/butter and allow to melt/heat for
approximately 1 minute.
6. If using chicken or seafood in the recipe,
sauté in small batches, cover with lid if
necessary and stir occasionally until food
is cooked. Remove from cooking bowl.
7. Add extra oil/butter to cooking bowl if
necessary or if recipe states. Allow to
heat for approximately 1 minute.
8. Add ingredients such as onions, garlic
and sauté, cover with lid if necessary and
stir occasionally for about 4 to 5 minutes
or until cooked to desired brownness.
9. Stir in Arborio or carnaroli rice and
mix well. Sauté for approximately 2-3
minutes, stirring occasionally.
10. Pour in wine (if using) and cook
uncovered until rice has absorbed all
liquid and alcohol has evaporated,
stirring frequently.
11. Refer to step 1 in the RISOTTO
setting section below.
RISOTTO Setting

2. Add stock or water and stir well.
Cover with lid and press the MENU
SELECTOR button to the RISOTTO
setting. The red light will flash for a few
seconds, then the light will permanently
illuminate and cooking will commence.
3. Allow to cook, until Risotto & Rice™
automatically switches to the WARM
setting. This will take approximately 2030 minutes depending on the recipe.
4. Remove lid and stir well using the
serving spoon provided. At this stage
remaining ingredients can be added
i.e., butter, parmesan cheese, herbs,

Operating Your Breville Risotto & Rice™
NOTE
How to Make RiCE
When adding extra ingredients to
risotto that require cooking e.g.;
chicken, seafood or vegetables.
These can be added towards the end
of cooking time before the liquid in
risotto has fully absorbed and risotto
is still quite runny in texture. Stir
ingredients into risotto, cover with
lid and continue cooking until risotto
switches to WARM setting. Check
for doneness and if not quite cooked
switch back to RISOTTO setting to
cook a little more.
RICE Setting
1. Use the Risotto & Rice™ measuring
cup provided to measure the required
quantity of rice (refer to cooking tables page 15). Always measure level cups, not
heaped (Fig 1).
Fig. 1
NOTE
When risotto maker has switched to
the WARM setting and rice is still a
little firm and under cooked and if
there is still some unabsorbed liquid
in the cooking bowl, cover with lid and
leave on the WARM setting for 5 to 10
minutes to finish cooking.
NOTE
When risotto maker has switched to
the WARM setting and rice is still
a little firm and under cooked, and
most of liquid has been absorbed, add
a little extra stock or water, stir well,
cover with lid and leave on the WARM
setting for 5 to 10 minutes or until
extra liquid is absorbed and rice is
tender.
TIP
For optimum risotto results, we
recommend you stir once after 15-20
minutes in the RISOTTO setting.
10
NOTE
1 level Rice cup =
150 grams uncooked rice
1 level Rice cup uncooked rice =
2 Rice cups cooked rice (approx.)
The maximum quantity of uncooked
white rice to be cooked =
10 Rice cups
The minimum quantity of uncooked
white rice to be cooked =
2 Rice cups
2. Place measured rice into a separate bowl
and wash with cold water to remove
any excess starch. The rice is ready for
cooking when water runs clear from the
rice. Drain well.
3. Ensure the exterior of the removable
cooking bowl is clean before placing it
in the housing (this will ensure proper
contact with the inner cooking surface)
(Fig 2).
Operating Your Breville Risotto & Rice™
Fig. 2
10. Open the lid and turn the rice over with
the serving spoon provided. Replace the
lid and allow the rice to stand for 10-15
minutes before serving. This allows
any excess moisture to be absorbed,
resulting in a fluffier rice texture.
NOTE
After using the RICE setting the
appliance will automatically switch to
the WARM setting for up to 5 hours.
4. Add the washed rice to the removable
cooking bowl, ensuring rice is spread
evenly across the bottom of the bowl and
not heaped to one side (Fig 3).
Fig. 3
NOTE
Do not remove the glass lid until ready
to serve (except for when turning over
rice after cooking is complete or as
suggested in the recipes).
NOTE
To stop the WARM setting, switch off
at the power outlet and then unplug
the power cord.
5. Add water using the following ratios:
White Rice = 1 cup water : 1 cup rice
Brown Rice = 1½ cups water : 1 cup rice
6. Place the glass lid into position.
7. Plug power cord into a 230V or 240V
power outlet and then switch the power
on at power outlet. The WARM light
will illuminate.
8. Press the MENU SELECTOR button
to the RICE setting. The red light
will flash for a few seconds, then the
light will permanently illuminate and
cooking will commence.
9. When cooking is complete, the Ready
beeps will sound and the Risotto &
Rice™ will automatically switch to the
WARM setting. The orange WARM
light will illuminate.
IMPORTANT
• Always place liquid into the
removable cooking bowl before
pressing the MENU SELECTOR
button to the RICE setting.

brown rice cooking table.
STEAMING FOODS
in your Breville
Risotto & Rice™
PAge header.....
Steaming
Steamed foods retain most of their nutritional
value when cooked in the Risotto & Rice™
Cooker. Foods may be steamed by placing
food in the stainless steel steaming tray over
stock or water and covering with the glass
lid. Keep the glass lid on while steaming
food unless the recipe or chart specifically
states to remove the lid. By removing the lid
unnecessarily steam is lost and the cooking
time will be extended.
NOTE
1. Measure 3 Risotto & Rice™ cups or more of
water or stock and pour into the removable
cooking bowl. Use up to a maximum of 6
Risotto & Rice™ cups of water.
Do not let the removable cooking bowl
boil dry during steaming.
2. Place food to be steamed directly into
the stainless steel steaming tray and
insert into the removable cooking bowl.
(Refer to the Steaming Charts on pages
20-22 for approximate cooking times).
NOTE
3. Place removable cooking bowl with the
steaming tray into housing and cover
with the glass lid.
4. Plug power cord into a 230/240-volt
power outlet and then switch on.
5. Press the MENU SELECTOR button
to the RICE setting. The red light
will flash for a few seconds, then the
light will permanently illuminate and
cooking will commence.
6. When steaming is complete, remove
foods from the Risotto & Rice™. If further
steaming is required ensure sufficient
water is in the removable cooking bowl.
If not, add more hot water.
7. If no further steaming is required, turn
the Risotto & Rice™ off at the power outlet
and then unplug power cord. Allow to cool
before cleaning.
Keep the glass lid on while steaming food
unless the recipe or chart specifically
states to remove the lid. (By removing
the lid unnecessarily steam is lost and
the cooking time will be extended.)
NOTE
Hot liquid can be added during the
steaming process.
Hints and tips for
steaming vegetables
• Smaller pieces will steam faster than
larger pieces.
• Try to keep vegetables to a standard size
to ensure even cooking.
• Fresh or frozen vegetables may
be steamed.
• If steaming frozen vegetables, do
not thaw.
• The size and shape of vegetables, as
well as personal taste, may call for
adjustments to the cooking time. If
softer vegetables are required, allow
extra cooking time.
• Do not allow water or stock to reach the
stainless steel tray. The steaming will
not be effective.
WARNING
Always lift and remove the lid carefully,
angling it away from yourself to avoid
scalding from escaping steam.
