CONTROL

Step 4

Plug power cord into a 230/240V power outlet and switch on.

Step 5

Press the ‘Power’ button on the far left of the control panel to turn the blender on. The ‘Power’ button will illuminate and flash. The LCD timer screen will illuminate with ‘00’ displayed.

NOTE

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.

Step 6

Select the required speed (1 to 5) by pressing the corresponding speed button. The blender will start to operate and the selected speed button will illuminate. The ‘Power’ button will illuminate and cease to flash.

The ‘Stop’ button will illuminate and flash.

The LCD timer screen will start counting upwards in one second increments until 120 seconds is reached.

NOTE

Operate the blender only for the appropriate amount of time required – do not over blend.

Step 7

When 120 seconds is reached, the blender will automatically cease to operate and the selected speed button and ‘Stop’ button illumination will go out. The ‘Power’ button will illuminate and flash. After a few seconds the LCD timer screen will revert to ‘00’.

NOTE

• The Blender will automatically stop blending after 120 seconds (2 minutes). This is a safety feature and restricts wear on the motor.

• To stop blending at any time, press the ‘Stop’ button or the selected speed button. The ‘Power’ button can also be pressed, but this will also turn the appliance off and all illuminations will go out.

• The speed can be changed at any time during the blending process.

Ice / Crush 60 seconds (1 minute)

When ‘00’ seconds is reached, the blender will automatically cease to operate and the function button and ‘Stop’ button illumination will go out. The ‘Power’ button will illuminate and flash.

NOTE

Use the ‘PULSE’ button when the food that is being processed is too thick or coarse to circulate within the blender jug.

NOTE

The smoothie function has a unique processing technique that blends the denser ingredients at a lower speed, then increases as ingredients thicken.

This may happen several times while blending smoothies.

To stop blending at any time, press the

‘Stop’ button or the selected function button.

The ‘Power’ button can also be pressed, but this will also turn the appliance off and all illuminations will go out.

The maximum amount of ice cubes the blender can blend at any one time is 1 standard ice tray or 250g.

WARNING

Never place anything other than food and liquids in the blender whilst the motor is running.

Step 9

For ingredients that require short bursts of power, select the ‘PULSE’ function. The

‘PULSE’ button will illuminate and remain illuminated while the button is depressed.

When this function is selected, the LCD timer screen will illuminate and count upwards in one second increments during pulsing. Press the ‘PULSE’ button in short bursts until blending is complete.

Step 10

At the end of use, always ensure the blender is turned off by pressing the ‘Power’ button on the control panel. Then switch the appliance off at the power outlet and unplug the cord. Ensure the motor and blades have completely stopped before attempting to move the appliance, or when the Breville Blender is not in use and before disassembling, cleaning and storing.

NOTE

• During the blending process, ingredients may stick to the sides of the blender jug. To push the food back onto the blades, press the ‘Power’ button on the control panel and switch off at the power outlet and remove the power cord.

Remove the lid and use a plastic spatula to scrape down the sides of the jug. Replace the lid before recommencing blending.

• If any moisture or liquid appears on top of the motor base during blending, press the ‘Power’ button on the control panel, switch off at the power outlet and remove the power plug. Remove the blender jug.

Wipe the motor base immediately with a dry cloth or paper toweling to absorb the liquid. Check the blender jug is correctly assembled.

HINTS & TIPS

PROBLEM

Motor doesn’t start or blade doesn’t rotate

Food is unevenly chopped

Food is chopped too fine or is watery

Food sticks to blade and jug

Blender Overloaded

EASy SOLUTION

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.

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.

Blend for shorter period of time. Use ‘PULSE’ function for more control.

The mixture may be too thick. Try adding more liquid to the mixture and / or use a slower speed.

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.

HINTS & TIPS dO’S ANd dON’TS

do’s

• 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.

• Use the Smoothie function to blend fruits, ice cream and yogurts into thick smoothies, whips and milkshakes.

• Use the Ice Crush function for foods that only require short bursts of power such as chopping nuts and crushing ice.

• Use the Ice Crush function with short bursts of power, when blending drinks containing ice cubes or frozen fruit.

• Ensure all foods are cut into cubes

(approx. 2cm square) where appropriate to achieve an even result.

• 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.

don'ts

• Do not use metal utensils as they may damage the blades or blender jug.

• 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.

• 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.

• Do not place any objects, other than food or liquid, into the Breville Blender while the motor is running.

• Do not use the blender jug to store food.

• The blender will not knead dough or mash potatoes.

• 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 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.
