Breville recommends safety first


Your Breville appliance comes with a unique Assist™ Plug, conveniently designed with

a finger hole in the power plug for easy and safe removal from the wall outlet. For safety reasons it is recommended you plug your Breville appliance directly into its own electrical outlet on a dedicated circuit separate from other appliances. If the electric circuit is overloaded with other

appliances, your appliance may not function properly. Use in conjunction with a power strip or extension cord is not recommended.


To prevent burns or personal injury, always use protective hot pads or oven mitts when touching or handling the wok. Appliance surfaces are hot during and after use.


Your Breville appliance is fitted with a short power supply cord as a safety precaution to prevent personal injury or property damage resulting from pulling, tripping or becoming entangled with a longer cord. Do not allow children to use or be near this appliance without close adult supervision. Longer detachable power supply cords or extension cords are not recommended but may be used if care is exercised. If an extension cord is used, (1) the marked electrical rating of the cord set or extension cord should be at least as great as the electrical rating of the appliance, (2) the cord should be arranged so that it will not drape over the countertop or tabletop where it can be pulled on by children or tripped over unintentionally and (3) the extension cord must include a 3-pronggrounding plug.

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 heating arrow 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.

The numbers on the dial represent the following:
