Plastic Spatula
Your Avance Ultimate Wok is supplied with a
plastic charn for stirring foods, as it won’t
damage the non stick surface.
New Quantanium Scratch Resistant
Non-Stick Cooking Surface
Your Breville Avance Ultimate Wok features
the new highly resilient Quantanium coating.
It features special scratch resistant minerals
causing metal utensils to slide over these
particles without damaging the coating.
The end result is a non stick coating
which enables the use of metal utensils
such as spatulas and spoons, but not
sharp utensils.
This non stick surface also means that
foods won’t stick and less oil can be used
while cooking.
Regular high heat cooking may discolour
the non-stick Quantanium surface, this is
normal and will not affect the performance
of the non-stick coating.
6
Removable Temperature Control Probe
The temperature probe has 14 heat settings
plus ‘High Sear’ for accurate temperature
control. The ‘High Sear’ setting should be
used for searing and sealing meats when
stir frying.
The light on the probe switches off
automatically when the temperature is
reached and will cycle on and off during
cooking in order to maintain the
temperature selected.

heat controller into the appliance first,
then plug into main power outlet.
OPERATING YOUR BREVILLE WOK cont’d
3. Preheat the Avance Ultimate Wok on the
‘High Sear’ setting for approximately
10 minutes. The thermostat ‘On’ light will
illuminate on the heat control indicating
the temperature at which the dial is set.
4. When the thermostat light goes out this
indicates the wok has reached its set
temperature. The wok is now ready for
use. The thermostat light will cycle
on and off throughout cooking as the
temperature is maintained by
the thermostat.
5. When cooking is completed, turn
temperature control knob to the off
position (“0” on dial) before switching off
at the power outlet. Unplug from power
outlet. Leave temperature control probe
connected to the appliance until cool.
The Avance Ultimate Wok

and plug doesn’t scratch
the non-stick coating.
TO REMOVE THE BASE
FOR CLEANING
1. Move the Push-Lever Removable Base
Button to the ‘unlock’ position.
PULL-OUT SPOON REST
NEW QUANTANIUM SCRATCH
RESISTANT COATING
Your Avance Ultimate Wok features a special
scratch resistant non stick coating that
makes it safe to use metal utensils
when cooking.
Regardless of this fact, Breville
recommends that care is taken with the
non-stick coating particularly when using
metal utensils. A plastic spatula has been
provided for your use.
Do not use sharp objects or cut food inside
the Avance Ultimate Wok. Breville will not be
liable for damage to the non-stick coating
where metal utensils have been misused.
Cooking on a non-stick surface minimises
the need for oil, food does not stick and
cleaning is easier.
Any discolouration that may occur will
only detract from the appearance of the
Avance Ultimate Wok and will not affect the
cooking performance.
To clean interior and exterior surface
When cleaning the non-stick coating do
not use metal (or other abrasive) scourers.
Wash in hot soapy water. Remove stubborn
spots with a plastic scouring pad or nylon
washing brush.
Take care when the glass lid
is hot. Do not place hot lid
under cold water or on cold
surfaces. This may cause
id to break.
2. Lift the base from the wok, lifting over the
heat controller socket.
Remove the spoon rest from the wok base by
simply pulling the rest all the way out from
the base and depressing the area in the
middle. This will allow the spoon rest to be
fully removed. Wash in warm soapy water
using a soft sponge, rinse and dry
thoroughly. Alternatively, the spoon rest
can be placed into the dishwasher.
DISHWASHER SAFE
The wok base may be washed in hot soapy
water, dry thoroughly. The wok base is
dishwasher safe.
The Avance Ultimate Wok should never be
operated without the wok and base fully
assembled and locked into place.
3. To relock base to wok, move Push-Lever
Removable Base Button to the
‘lock’ position.
GLASS LID
Wash the glass lid in warm soapy water
using a soft sponge, rinse and dry
thoroughly. The glass lid is dishwasher safe.
Your Avance Ultimate Wok is dishwasher
safe for easy cleaning. The recessed heating
element is completely sealed so it is safe to
immerse in water. Both the top and base of
the Avance Ultimate Wok may be placed in
the dishwasher. It is recommended that
the base be washed by hand.
Before inserting temperature
control probe into the Wok
socket ensure the interior of
the socket is fully dry. To do
this, shake out excess water
then wipe the interior of the
socket with a dry cloth.

COOKING TECHNIQUES
STIR-FRYING
Recommended temperature probe setting ‘High Sear’ for stir frying meat.
13 - 14 for vegetables and seafood
• Stir frying is an energy efficient and
healthy way of cooking foods. The benefit
of this method is its speed and the flavour
result. The non-stick cooking surface on
your wok also means that less oil is
required for cooking. The cooking action
for stir frying is a continual tossing
motion to ensure the food is evenly
exposed to the heat and cooks quickly
and evenly in a couple of minutes.
• Stir frying should be carried out using
a high heat setting.
• Preheat your wok before adding any
ingredients, allow the temperature light
to cycle ‘on’ and ‘off’ several times. This
will allow the wok to reach an even
high temperature.
• Stir frying is a dry heat cooking method
and is best suited to tender cuts of meat.
Timing is a key factor when cooking them
as over cooking will give a tough, dry
result. Cooking times depend on the size
and thickness of the cut, as the bigger
the cut the more time is needed.

COOKING TECHNIQUES cont’d
RECOMMENDED CUTS
FOR STIR FRYING
BEEF
Lean beef strips prepared from rump,
sirloin, rib eye and fillet.
CHICKEN
Lean chicken strips prepared from breast
fillets, tenderloins, thigh fillets.
LAMB
Lean lamb strips prepared from fillet,
lamb leg steaks, round or topside mini
roasts and loin.
PORK
Lean pork strips prepared from leg, butterfly
or medallion steaks or fillet.
VEAL
Eye of loin, fillet, round, rump or topside.
STIR FRY TIPS
• Buy meat strips from your butcher or
supermarket, or prepare meat strips from
recommended cuts listed above by
removing any fat and slicing thinly across
the grain (across direction of meat fibres).
Slicing across the grain ensure
tenderness. Cut into very thin strips,
approximately 5 - 8cm in length. Partially
freeze meat (approximately 30 minutes)
to make slicing easier.
• Stir fry meat strips in small batches
(approx 200 - 300g) to stop meat shedding
its juice and ‘stewing’, resulting in
tougher meat.
• When adding meat strips to the frypan,
the strips should sizzle.
• Stir fry meat strips for 1 - 2 minutes.
Any longer will toughen meat.
• Remove each batch when cooked and
allow frypan to reheat before stir frying
the next. By cooking in small batches the
heat of the frypan remains constant,
ensuring the meat doesn’t stew
and toughen.
• A small amount of oil can be mixed
through the meat strips before adding to
the frypan, along any other flavouring
such as garlic, ginger and chilli. A little
sesame oil can also add flavour. Mixing
the meat with the oil rather than heating
it separately in the frypan eliminates
using too much.
• Drain off thin marinades from meat strips
before stir frying to prevent stewing
and splatter.
Fry vegetables before meat in a little oil
(or sprinkling of water) until vivid in
colour for:
3 MINUTES
Onion, quartered
Broccoli, flowerets
Carrots, sliced
Soaked Chinese dried Mushrooms
2 MINUTES
Snow peas
Capsicum, sliced
Zucchinis, sliced
Water chestnuts
Bamboo shoots
1 MINUTE
Garlic, minced
Chilli, minced
Ginger, minced
Shallots, chopped
Bean sprouts
This brief cooking time will keep
vegetables crisp.
• Peanut oil is traditionally used for stir fry
Asian style dishes. However other oils
such as vegetable, canola and light olive
may be used.
• Do not over fill the frypan. If necessary
cook in batches and reheat at the end of
stir frying. If using this method remember
to under cook slightly to not overcook the
end result.
• Serve stir fried foods immediately to
retain their crisp texture.

SHALLOW FRYING
SLOW COOKING (BRAISING)
SLOW COOKING TIPS
Recommended temperature probe
setting 8-10.
Used to crispen and cook foods in a small
amount of oil. The foods may have already
been cooked.
• Use approximately 3 cups of oil, or
sufficient oil so that half the food
is immersed.
• Preheat the oil before adding food. When
using oil never cover with the lid during
heating or cooking as this will cause
condensation to drip into the oil and
result in bubbling and splattering.
• Do not move the wok during heating
or cooking.
• Wipe moisture from foods to
avoid splattering.
• Cook a few pieces at a time to
ensure crispness.
• Drain cooked foods on kitchen paper
to reduce greasiness.
• Never leave your frypan unattended
or unsupervised while shallow frying.
• Allow oil to cool before removing
from frypan.
• Vegetable, peanut or canola oil is
recommended for frying.
Recommended temperature probe
setting 1 - 2.
Your Avance Ultimate Wok is ideal for
slow cooking curries and casseroles. Slow
cooking allows less tender meat cuts to be
used, to obtain a tender result. Less tender
meat cuts contain sinew and gristle, these
will be broken down during cooking to give a
tender result. It is not recommended to slow
cook with tender meat cuts as they will
toughen and shrink during cooking.
It is recommended during slow cooking to
place the lid on to retain the heat. During the
cooking process the curry or casserole will
boil then turn off. This is normal operating
for a probe controlled unit.
• Cut meat into 3cm cubes. Trim any
visible fat.
• Use a medium to low heat setting
• Cook for approx 1 1/2 - 2 hours, stirring
occasionally with the lid on.
• Add soft or quick cooking vegetables such
as mushrooms, tomatoes, beans or corn
in the last half hour of cooking.
• Thicken towards end of cooking by
stirring a little cornflour blended with
water, or plain flour blended with
margarine or butter. Alternatively, coat
the meat in plain flour before browning.

PREPARATION TECHNIQUES
SPECIAL INGREDIENTS
The success of any dish depends on careful forethought and preparation. To achieve an
authentic Oriental appearance and even cooking results, food should be cut into small,
even pieces. This allows food to cook quickly and to be easily picked up with chopsticks.
SLICING
SHREDDING
A straight slice is used for cutting meats and
vegetables. Slices should be of an even
thickness. Partially frozen meat will slice
more evenly. Slice meat very thinly, across
the grain to obtain a more tender result.
Used for cutting meats and vegetables.
5mm slices of food should be stacked, then
cut again into 5mm sticks. Vegetables such
as cabbage and spinach should have their
leaves stacked, then rolled up. Cut width
ways very finely.
A little planning ahead makes stir frying easier.
AGAR-AGAR
CHILLIES, FRESH AND DRIED
Is made from different types of seaweed. It
has excellent setting properties, similar to
gelatine, and will set at room temperature.
Chillies are available in many different types
and sizes. The small ones (birds eye or bird
peppers) are the hottest. Use tight fitting
gloves when handling and chopping fresh
chillies as they can burn your skin. The chilli
seeds are the hottest part of the chillies so
remove them if you want to reduce the heat
content of recipes.
BOK CHOY
Also known as Chinese chard or Chinese
white cabbage, has fleshy white stems and
dark green leaves. It has a slight mustard
taste. There is also a smaller version called
shanghai or baby bok choy.
BAMBOO SHOOTS
CUBING AND DICING
MATCHSTICK OR JULIENNE
First slice the vegetables as described
above. Then, stack slices and cut again into
thin or thick sticks depending on the recipe.
Used for cutting meats and vegetables. To
cube, cut 3cm slices, then stack them on top
of one another and slice 3mm thick in the
opposite direction. Cut again in the opposite
direction forming 3cm cubes. To dice, follow
the same directions, making 5mm slices
forming 5mm cubes.
The young tender shoots of bamboo plants
are available in cans. They are mainly used
to add texture to food.
COCONUT CREAM AND
COCONUT MILK
Both coconut cream and milk are extracted
from the grated flesh of mature coconuts.
The cream is a richer first pressing and the
milk the second or third pressing.
CORIANDER
This is also known as cilantro and Chinese
parsley. It is essential to many Southeast
Asian cuisines. A strongly flavoured herb,
use it sparingly until you are accustomed to
the unique flavour. Parsley can be used as a
substitute; it looks the same but tastes quite
different. Coriander is available fresh,
ground and in seed form.
CHAR SIU SAUCE
This is the equivalent of Chinese BBQ sauce.
CRISP FRIED SHALLOTS
These are available from most Asian
Supermarkets pre-prepared.

RICE NOODLES
SAMBAL OELEK
SZECHUAN PEPPER CORNS
A thin, salty dark brown sauce with a
distinctive fishy smell, which is used
extensively in Thai and Vietnamese cookery.
It is made from small fish that have been
fermented in the sun. Fish sauce replaces
salt in many recipes.
These are fresh white noodles, they do not
require a lot of cooking.
This is a paste made from ground chillies
and salt. This can also be used as an
ingredient or an accompaniment.
These are available from most Asian
Supermarkets and have a slight
aniseed taste.
TAMARIND
WATER CHESTNUTS
Tamarind has a fruit, tart flavour and is a
large, brown bean like pod. It is available as
a dried shelled fruit, a block of compressed
pulp or as a puree or concentrate.
Small white crisp bulbs with a brown skin.
Canned water chestnuts are peeled and
will keep for about 1 month, covered in
the refrigerator.
GARAM MARSALA
A blend of spices, usually consisting of some
combination of cinnamon, cumin, pepper,
cloves, cardamom, nutmeg and mace.
It can be bought already blended from
supermarkets, but it is best freshly made. It
is usually added towards the end of cooking.
GREEN GINGER WINE
An Australian made alcoholic sweet wine
infused with finely ground ginger.
KAFFIR LIME LEAVES
These are dark green, shiny, double leaves
which have a very pungent perfume. They
are rather thick and must be sliced very
finely for use as a garnish, or added whole
in a curry.
LEMON GRASS
TOFU
An aromatic fresh herb that is used in curry
pastes, stir fries and soups. Trim the base,
remove the tough, outer layers and finely
slice, chop or pound the white interior.
Whole stems can be added to soups or
curries. Dried lemon grass needs to be
soaked in water, but the flavour of fresh
is superior.
Tofu, or bean curd, is a high protein, low fat
food made from soya beans. It is available in
very firm or soft blocks and is either fresh or
vacuum-packed. It takes on the flavour of
the spices and sauces it is cooked with.
HOISIN SAUCE
This sauce is a thick sweet Chinese
barbecue sauce made from a mixture of
salted black beans, onions and garlic.
HOIKKIEN NOODLES
18

flavour, peel away the rough skin, remove
the seed and use. They are also available
in cans.
TURMERIC
This is best known in its powdered form and
is often used to colour food. It has a bitter
flavour and it is also available fresh as a
root, rather like ginger, which is peeled
and then grated and finely chopped.
RICE WINE VINEGAR
Milder than most western vinegars, it
usually has an acidity of less than 4%.
It has a mild, sweet, delicate flavour
and is made from rice.
