Why is the Breville Hemisphere Blender superior?

What makes this blender superior?

The secret to the Hemisphere™ Blade System is the continuous movement created inside the pitcher. It allows the ikon™ 550 Blender to combine the functions of a blender with a mini food processor for the ultimate in versatility.

Combined with a powerful motor and heavy duty commercial grade components, the ikon 550 Blender is built for durability, reliability and professional results superior to all other blenders.

Operating your Breville Hemisphere Blender

Before first use

Before using your Breville Hemisphere Blender for the first time, remove any packaging material and promotional labels. Make sure the appliance is switched off at the power outlet and the power cord is unplugged. Wash the lid, inner lid, blender pitcher and blade assembly (refer to Disassembling the blender pitcher on Page 13) of the Breville Hemisphere Blender in warm, soapy water with a soft cloth. Rinse and dry thoroughly. You may opt to wash the parts in the top shelf of any dishwasher and the pitcher in the base section of the dishwasher You may opt to wash the parts in the top shelf of any dishwasher and the pitcher in the base section of

the dishwasher. The motor base can be wiped with a damp cloth. Dry thoroughly.

When using your Breville Hemisphere Blender for the first time, you may notice an odor coming from the motor. This is normal and will dissipate with use.

The blending blades are extremely sharp. Avoid any contact with fingers and hands.

Note

Assembling and attaching the blender

Step 1.

Place the motor base on a flat, dry surface such as a table top. Make sure that the motor base is turned off at the power outlet and the power cord is unplugged.

Step 2.

To reassemble the blender pitcher, replace the silicon seal onto the blade assembly (see Page 14 - Fig 1). Turn the blender pitcher over and insert the blade assembly housing into the pitcher base (see Page 14 - Fig 2). Twist the Blade Removal System counterclockwise until firmly screwed into position.

Step 3.

Turn the blender pitcher upright and insert on to the motor base. The handle of the blender pitcher can be positioned to the left or right hand side of the appliance.

Step 4.

Add food or liquid into the blender pitcher ensuring not to exceed the ‘MAX’ mark. Place the blender lid firmly into position on the top of the blender pitcher. Insert the clear inner lid into the blender lid and turn clockwise to lock into position. (see Fig 1)

Operating your Breville Hemisphere Blender continued

The Breville Hemisphere Blender features a patented* assist lid. This allows the lid to fit tightly onto the blender pitcher, avoiding displacement during operation. The ring pull design allows the user to easily remove the lid with a simple leverage action. (See Fig 1)

Note

Fig 1

Step 5.

Plug the power cord into a 110 / 120V power outlet and turn on.

Step 6.

Press the ‘Power’ button on the far left of the control panel to turn the blender on. The ‘Power’ button will illuminate and flash.

Do not fill the blender pitcher above the ‘MAX’ line. When the blender pitcher is filled at or near the ‘MAX’ line place one hand on the blender lid to avoid displacement of the lid during operation.

Note

Step 7.

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.

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

Note

Step 8.

When 60 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.

The ikon Blender will automatically stop blending after 60 seconds. This is a safety feature.

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. Each time a new speed is selected its button will illuminate and the previous speed button illumination will go out.

The maximum amount of ice cubes the blender can blend at any one time is 1 standard ice tray or 9 oz. Use Speed 2/Mix.

Note

Step 9.

For ingredients that require short bursts of power, select the ‘AUTO PULSE’ function. The ‘AUTO PULSE’ button will illuminate and remain illuminated while the button is pushed. Press the ‘AUTO PULSE’ button in short bursts until blending is complete.

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

Note

NEVER PLACE ANYTHING OTHER THAN FOOD AND LIQUIDS IN THE IKON BLENDER WHILE THE MOTOR IS RUNNING.

Operating your Breville Hemisphere Blender continued

Step 10.

At the end of use, always make sure the Breville Hemisphere Blender is turned off by pressing the ‘Power’ button on the control panel. And then unplug the cord. Make sure the motor and blades have completely stopped before attempting to move the appliance, or when the Breville Hemisphere Blender is not in use and before disassembling, cleaning and storing.

During the blending process, ingredients may stick to the sides of the blender pitcher. To push the food back onto the blades, press the ‘Power’ button on the control panel and remove the power cord. Remove the lid and use a plastic spatula to scrape down the sides of the pitcher. 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 pitcher. Wipe the motor base immediately with a dry cloth or paper towel to absorb the liquid. Check that the blender pitcher is correctly assembled.

Tips on how to best use your Breville Hemisphere Blender

Do

Use Low speeds (1-3- Snow, Mix and Blend) 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 (Liquify and Smoothie) for pureeing soups and aerating liquids.

Use ‘AUTO PULSE’ for foods that only require short bursts of power such as ice crushing or chopping nuts.

Use Speed 1 / Snow or AUTO PULSE for ice crushed creations. The maximum amount of ice cubes the blender can blend at any one time is 1 standard ice try or 9 oz.

Make sure all foods are cut into cubes (approx. 1 inch squares) where appropriate to achieve an even result.

Do not put more than 2 cups of warm ingredients into the Breville Hemisphere Blender before blending. After the blending process has begun and the blades are turning you may slowly add another 11/2 cups of ingredients through the opening in the lid if desired.

Thick mixtures puree more efficiently if the Breville Hemisphere Blender is 1/4 to1/2 full.

When using several ingredients, place liquid ingredients in the blender pitcher before solid ingredients, unless specified in the recipe.

When blending thick or dry mixtures it may be necessary to stop the Breville Hemisphere Blender and scrape down the sides of the blender pitcher with a plastic or rubber spatula, once or twice during blending. Do not use metal utensils as they may damage the blades or blender pitcher.

Don’t

Do not operate a heavy mixture for more than 30 seconds. For normal blending tasks, for example, mayonnaise, dressings etc., do not operate for longer than 1 minute at a time without turning off the Breville Hemisphere Blender and stirring the ingredients, and then continue blending.

Do not operate the Breville Hemisphere Blender without having the blender lid in position. To add additional ingredients while blending, remove the inner lid and place ingredients through the opening in the lid.

Do not fill the blender pitcher above the 'MAX' line. When the blender pitcher 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 Breville Hemisphere Blender while the motor is running.

Do not use the blender pitcher to store food.

The blender will not knead dough or mash potatoes.

Do not remove the blender pitcher while the Breville Hemisphere Blender is operating. Always make sure the blender is off by pressing the ‘Power’ button, turn off the power at the power outlet and unplug the power cord from the power outlet.

Do not overload the Breville Hemisphere Blender with more than the specified quantity of ingredients as doing so could cause the motor to stall. Turn the Breville Hemisphere Blender off by pressing the ‘Power’ button on the control panel, turn off the power at the power outlet and unplug the cord. Remove a portion of the mixture from the blender pitcher before continuing.

Do not place hot or boiling ingredients into the Breville Hemisphere Blender; allow to cool before placing into the blender pitcher.

Ice making capabilities of your Breville Hemisphere Blender

The revolutionary Breville Hemisphere Blender allows you to make different consistencies of ice depending on your blending needs. ‘Speed 1/Snow’ and ‘AUTO PULSE / ICE CRUSH’ offer two distinctly alternative icy results. When using ice on either setting, be sure to consider the actual condition of the cubes before proceeding, as it will affect the end consistency.

‘Speed 1/Snow’ is unique to the Breville Hemisphere Blender and will allow you to make even, powdery snow. When making Snow, be sure to use only large, solid, dry ice that has come straight from the freezer (22 ºF / -5.6ºC, or below).

If using ice cubes with ‘Speed1/Snow’ that are small, slightly melted or even hollow, the end result may form an igloo and leave lumps of ice. If the condition of the ice cubes appear to be small, hollow or even slightly melted, only use with the ‘AUTO PULSE/ICE CRUSH’ setting.

For applications when you desire a coarse consistency, use with the ‘AUTO PULSE / ICE CRUSH’ setting, in which case any type of ice cubes may

be used.

The ice cube matters.

To create even, powdery snow for flavored ice drinks, be sure to only use large, solid, dry ice that has come straight from the freezer, then press ‘Speed 1/Snow’.

When coarser ice is required, use any type of ice, then press 'AUTO PULSE/ICE CRUSH'.

Note

Coarse ice is great for using as a base for fresh oysters. Snowed ice is great for Shrimp cocktails or slushie frozen treats!

Note

Trouble shooting

Trouble shooting chart

Problem

Solution

 

 

Motor doesn’t start or blade doesn’t rotate

Check that the power plug is securely inserted into

 

the power outlet and switched on.

 

Check that the blender jug and lid are securely

 

locked into position.

 

Check that the ‘Power’ button and selected function

 

or speed setting is illuminated.

 

Be sure to press only one speed or function button

 

at a time.

 

 

Food is unevenly chopped

Either too much food is being chopped at one time or

 

the pieces are not small enough. 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

The food is over processed. Use brief pulses or process

 

for a shorter time.

 

 

Food sticks to blade

Processing too much food. Turn the blender off by pressing the

 

‘Power’ button on the control panel. Then switch off at the power

 

outlet and unplug the power cord. When the blade stops rotating,

 

remove the blender lid and remove some food with a spatula.

 

 

Ice is not chopping to desired consistency

The actual condition of the ice cubes will impact the end consistency.

 

Use larger, solid, dry ice on Snow/Speed 1 to create a snow

 

consistency. Use any type of ice on ‘ICE CRUSH’ when coarser

 

chopped ice is required.
