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
• When placing the iron on its stand,
ensure that the surface on which the
stand is placed is stable.
• Carefully read all instructions before
operation and save for future reference.
• The iron is not to be used if it has been
dropped, if there are visible signs of
damage or if it is leaking.
• Remove and safely discard any
packaging material and promotional
labels before using the appliance for the
first time.
• Do not allow the iron to lay flat on the

OPERATING YOUR BREVILLE JETSTEAM IRON
BEFORE FIRST USE
Step 4.
Remove any promotional material from the iron.
Select the temperature setting required
by rotating the Temperature Dial so that
the desired setting is aligned with the
Temperature Indicator.
Remove any sticker or protective cover
from the soleplate.
When operating the iron for the first time,
iron on an old piece of fabric to ensure
that the soleplate and water tank are
completely clean.
When the iron is used for the first time
some vapour may be emitted. After a short
while however, this will cease. The vapour
is due to the initial heating of the materials
used in the iron. It is safe and will not harm
the performance of the iron.
NOTE:
As an important part of our quality
control process, your iron has been
individually tested. As a result,
you may notice a small amount of
condensation or water droplets on
the inside of the water tank. There is
no need for concern.
SETTING THE TEMPERATURE
Step 1.
Before commencing ironing, sort all items
to be ironed according to the fabrics
requiring the coolest temperatures first and
then work through to the fabrics requiring
the higher temperatures.
Step 2.
Stand the iron on its heel and ensure that
the Temperature Dial is turned to minimum.
Step 3.
Plug the power cord into a 230V or 240V
power outlet and turn the power on.
Step 5.
The heating Indicator Light will illuminate,
indicating that the iron is heating up. When
the Indicator Light goes out, the iron has
reached the selected temperature and
is ready for use. The light will cycle on
and off as the thermostat maintains the
selected temperature.
NOTE:
The heating Indicator Light is sealed
in a plastic compartment, and does
not come into contact with the water
in the water tank.

THE JETSTEAM IRON
INCORPORATES A THERMAL
SAFETY FUSE TO PROTECT THE
IRON FROM OVER-HEATING.
HOWEVER THE IRON SHOULD
NOT BE LEFT UNATTENDED
WHILE IT IS CONNECTED TO
THE POWER OUTLET. SPECIAL
CARE SHOULD ALWAYS BE
TAKEN WHEN THERE ARE
CHILDREN IN THE HOME/
VICINITY OF THE IRON.
11
OPERATING YOUR BREVILLE JETSTEAM IRON
!
NEVER LEAVE THE IRON
UNATTENDED WHILE IT IS
CONNECTED TO AN
ELECTRICAL OUTLET. SPECIAL
CARE SHOULD ALWAYS BE
TAKEN WHEN THERE ARE
CHILDREN IN THE VICINITY.
FILLING THE WATER TANK
Step 1.
Always ensure that the iron is
disconnected from the power outlet before
filling with water.
Step 2.
Set the Steam Selector Dial to the position.
DRY
Step 3.
Open the Water Filling Cap and with the
iron held at an angle, slowly pour water
from the water filling beaker provided into
the filling inlet until the maximum water
level is reached. Do not fill the water tank
beyond the maximum water level line. Do
not use vinegar, starch or other chemically
descaled water.
Step 4.
Push the Water Filling Cap down firmly to close.
NOTE:
During the ironing process, always
ensure that there is sufficient water
in the water tank.
12
OPERATING THE
STEAM SETTINGS
Steam ironing is only possible at higher
ironing temperatures, as per the indications
on the temperature dial (cotton to linen).
Step 1.
Plug the power cord into a 230V or 240V
power outlet and turn the power on.
Step 2.
Set the Temperature Dial to the required
position within the steam area and wait until
the heating Indicator Light goes out.
Step 3.
Set the Steam Selector Dial to the required
setting ie. From minimum to maximum
steam. The iron is now ready for use.
NOTE:
Always ensure that the Steam
Selector Dial (located in front of the
Temperature Dial of the iron) is set to
correspond with the setting on the
Temperature Dial. If you attempt to
iron with the Steam Selector Dial set
to maximum and the Temperature
Dial simultaneously set to a relatively
low ironing temperature, the
water will not be able to vaporise
completely, resulting in water leaking
from the soleplate.
OPERATING YOUR BREVILLE JETSTEAM IRON
USING THE SHOT OF STEAM
VERTICAL SHOT OF STEAM
The Shot Of Steam function provides an
extra burst of steam, ideal for the removal
of stubborn creases and wrinkles during
steam or dry ironing.
The Vertical Shot Of Steam allows you
to use the iron for vertical ironing. This is
especially useful for getting wrinkles out of
hanging clothes, curtains, wall hangings etc.
Step 1.
Simply hold the iron vertically, positioned in front with a slight distance from the item
to be steamed, and press the Shot Of
Steam button.
Turn the Temperature Dial to the maximum
setting (ie. cotton to linen) and wait for the
heating Indicator Light to go out.
Step 2.
Lifting the iron slightly above the surface of
the fabric, firmly press the Shot Of Steam
button and then release it. An intense burst
of steam will penetrate deep into the fabric.
NOTE:
For optimal steam output, leave
an interval of at least four seconds
between pressing the Shot Of
Steam button.
The Shot Of Steam can be used
when the Steam Selector Dial is in
maximum setting.
For a stronger surge of steam, set
the Steam Selector Dial to the
position.
DRY
!
NEVER USE THE VERTICAL
SHOT OF STEAM WHILE
CLOTHES ARE ON THE BODY
OR DIRECT THE STEAM
TOWARDS PEOPLE.
13
OPERATING YOUR BREVILLE JETSTEAM IRON
DRY IRONING
3-WAY AUTO-OFF FEATURE
Step 1.
The Safety 3-Way Auto Off feature is
designed to switch the iron off if forgotten.
Turn the Steam Selector Dial to the DRY
position. This shuts off the steam flow
should there be any water in the tank.
When the iron is left in the upright position
it will shut off in approximately 8 minutes.
Step 2.
Select the required setting on the
Temperature Dial for the fabric to be ironed.
Step 3.
Once the temperature has been reached,
ironing may commence.
USING THE FINE MIST SPRAY
Spray can be used to dampen difficult
fabrics, dry areas, woolen items and
accidental creases. Firmly press the Spray
Button (located on the handle of the iron) to
produce a fine spray of water ahead of the
iron and continue ironing.
When left in the ironing position it will
switch off in approximately 30 seconds.
The spray can also be used with delicate
(synthetic) fabrics which are ironed at a
low temperature and therefore can not be
steam ironed.
NOTE:
If the spray function is operated
during dry ironing ensure that there
is sufficient water in the water tank.
When left on the side position it will switch
off in approximately 30 seconds.
14
OPERATING YOUR BREVILLE JETSTEAM IRON
AFTER EACH USE
Step 1.
Set the Steam Selector Dial to the position and turn the Temperature
DRY
Dial to minimum.
Step 2.
Switch the power off at the power outlet
and disconnect the power cord from the
power outlet.
Once the iron has shut itself off, the Auto
Off Indicator Light will blink to indicate that
the iron has switched off.
To reactivate the iron, simply move the iron.
The heating Indicator Light will switch on
when the iron is reaching the temperature
selected on the Temperature Dial.
!
SAFETY AUTO-OFF IS
DESIGNED AS A SAFETY
FEATURE ONLY. IRONS SHOULD
NOT BE LEFT SWITCHED ON
DELIBERATELY WHILE
UNATTENDED. IF SAFETY
AUTO-OFF HAS ACTIVATED AND
NO FURTHER IRONING IS
REQUIRED, WE RECOMMEND
THAT THE IRON IS SWITCHED
OFF AT THE POWER OUTLET
AND UNPLUGGED.
ANTI-DRIP FEATURE
The iron is equipped with an Anti-Drip
function. The iron will automatically stop
steaming when the temperature is too low.
This prevents water from dripping out of
the soleplate.
Step 3.
Open the Water Filling Cap and over a sink
or a bucket, invert the iron and shake to
empty the water tank.
Step 4.
Stand the iron in an upright position and
allow to cool.
Step 5.
Store the iron on its heel rest (and not
resting on the soleplate). To save space,
the power cord may be easily wound
around the storage facility.
NOTE:
Always store the iron standing on
its heel with all the water emptied
from the water tank. If the iron is
stored with the soleplate facing
downwards, corrosion and staining
of the soleplate (from even the
smallest amount of moisture left
after the tank is emptied).
When this function activates you will hear a
‘click’ sound. It is safe and it will not harm
the performance of the iron.

CARE & CLEANING
for your Breville JetSteam Iron
CARE & CLEANING
SELF CLEANING FUNCTION
Your iron will give the best result and last
longer if you apply ‘Self-Cleaning’ regularly
(once or twice a month) to remove any
scale or impurities.
Step 1.
Set the Steam Selector Dial to the position.
DRY
NOTE:
Once you have done this, it is
normal for a little water to remain
in the water tank because the iron’s
Anti-Drip system may prevent the
tank being completely emptied.
This will not affect its ironing
performance. Repeat the cleaning
process if the iron still contains a lot
of impurities.
Step 2.
Fill the water tank up to the MAX FILL water
level with the water filling beaker supplied.
Step 3.
!
Only use the Self Clean
feature when you want
to activate the selfcleaning system. Do not
hold the Steam Selector
Dial to the Self Clean
position whilst ironing.
!
BOILING WATER AND STEAM
WILL EMIT FROM THE HOLES IN
THE SOLEPLATE. IMPURITIES
AND SCALE (IF ANY) WILL BE
FLUSHED OUT. MOVE THE IRON
FORWARDS AND BACKWARDS
WHILE THIS HAPPENS.
Place the iron on its heel.
Step 4.
Set the Temperature Dial to ‘Linen’ (max).
Step 5.
Plug in at the power outlet, and switch on
at the power socket.
Step 6.
Allow the iron to heat up until the heating
Indicator Light turns off.
Step 7.
Turn the power off and remove the plug
from the power outlet.
Step 8.
Hold the iron horizontally over the sink.
Step 9.
Turn and hold the Steam Selector Dial to
the Self Clean position.
17
CARE & CLEANING
CLEANING THE SOLEPLATE
AND EXTERIOR
Step 1.
Ensure that the iron is disconnected from
the power outlet and the unit has fully
cooled prior to storage.
Step 2.
To remove residue which may have built
up from certain fabric finishes, clean the
soleplate with a rough cloth which has
been soaked in a vinegar water solution.
Dry thoroughly with a soft cloth.
To clean the steam holes, simply use a
damp cloth to wipe away any build up of
lint or starch from inside the steam holes.
Step 3.
Wipe the outer housing with a soft, damp
clean cloth and polish with a dry cloth.
NOTE:
Never use abrasives or scouring
pads to clean the soleplate. Avoid
hard contact with metal objects. Do
not scratch or damage the surface
of the soleplate.
Do not use abrasives or harsh
cleaners as they may damage the
surface of the iron.
Never immerse the iron or its cord
and plug in water or any other liquid.
