BREVILLE RECOMMENDS SAFETY FIRST cont’d

Regularly inspect the supply cord, plug and actual appliance for any damage.

If found damaged in anyway, immediately cease use of the appliance and call Breville Customer Service on 1-866-BREVILLE.

This appliance is for household use only. Do not use this appliance for anything other than its intended use. Do not use outdoors.

Your Breville appliance comes with the unique Assist Plug™, conveniently designed with a finger hole in the power plug, for easy and safe removal from the outlet. For safety reasons it is recommended you plug your Breville appliance directly into the power outlet. DO not use in conjunction with a power strip or extension cord.

This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). To reduce the risk of electric shock, this plug is intended to fit into a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit, contact a qualified electrician. Do not attempt to modify the plug in any way.

ELECTRIC CORD STATEMENT

Your rice cooker has a short cord as a safety precaution to prevent personal injury or property damage resulting from pulling, tripping or becoming entangled with the cord. Do not allow children to be near or use this appliance without close adult supervision. If you must use a longer power cord or an extension cord when using the appliance, the cord must be arranged so it will not drape or hang over the edge of a countertop, tabletop or surface area where it can be pulled on by children or tripped over. To prevent electric shock, personal injury or fire, the electrical rating of the extension cord you use must be the same or more than the wattage of the appliance (wattage is marked on the underside of the appliance).

OPERATING YOUR BREVILLE RICE DUO

Before first use, remove all promotional labels and wash the non-stickremovable cooking bowl, stainless steel steaming tray and glass lid in hot soapy water, rinse and dry thoroughly.

HOW TO COOK RICE

1.Use the Rice Duo measuring cup provided to measure the required quantity of rice (refer to cooking tables - page 9). Always measure level cups, not heaped (see fig 1).

fig 1

2.Place the rice into a separate bowl and wash with cold water to remove any excess starch. The rice is ready for cooking when water runs clear from the rice.

3.Ensure the exterior of the removable cooking bowl is clean before placing it in the stainless steel housing (this will ensure proper contact with the inner cooking surface). Add the washed rice to the removable cooking bowl, ensuring rice is spread evenly across the bottom of the bowl and not heaped to one side (see fig 2).

fig 2

4.Add water using the following ratios: White Rice = 1 cup water: 1 cup rice Brown Rice = 112 cups water: 1 cup rice

5.Place the glass lid into position.

6.Plug into a 120 volt power outlet. The amber ‘Warm’ light will illuminate.

7.To commence cooking, depress the selector control. The red ‘Cook’ light will illuminate.

8.When cooking is complete, the ready bell will sound and the Rice Duo will automatically switch to the ‘Keep Warm’ setting. The amber light will illuminate.

9.Open the lid and turn the rice over with the serving spoon provided. Replace the lid and allow the rice to stand for 10-15minutes before serving. This allows any excess moisture to be absorbed, resulting in a fluffier rice texture.

1 level Rice Duo measuring cup = 41/2 oz (140 grams) uncooked rice or 6 fl oz

 

(180ml) of water.

OPERATING YOUR BREVILLE RICE DUO cont’d

Rice can be kept in the automatic ‘Keep Warm’ setting for up to 5 hours.

Do not remove the glass lid until ready to serve (except for when turning over rice after cooking is complete or as suggested in the recipes).

To stop the ‘Keep Warm’ setting, unplug from the power outlet.

IMPORTANT

Always place liquid into the removable cooking bowl, or be ready to add oil, butter or margarine, before depressing the selector control to the ‘Cook’ setting.

Never try to force the selector control to stay in the ‘Cook’ setting after it has automatically switched to the ‘Keep Warm’ setting.

Do not interfere with the automatic selector control during operation.

To prevent scratching the non-sticksurface of the removable cooking bowl, always use wooden or plastic utensils.

ALWAYS LIFT AND REMOVE THE LID CAREFULLY, ANGLING IT AWAY

8FROM YOURSELF TO AVOID SCALDING FROM ESCAPING STEAM.

COOKING RICE

The rice measuring cup provided with your Breville Rice Duo is used in the following tables.

The Rice Duo measuring cup is not a standard imperial/metric measuring cup. 1 Rice Duo measuring cup is equal to 41/2 oz (140g) of uncooked rice and

6 fl oz (180ml) of water.

If your Rice Duo measuring cup is lost or misplaced, use another cup but maintain the same cooking ratios and ensure you do not exceed the 10 cup maximum line in the removable cooking bowl:

White Rice = 1 cup water : 1 cup rice

Brown Rice = 11/2 cups water : 1 cup rice

COOKING RICE cont’d

TIPS

Add a little extra water for fluffier rice and a little less water for firmer rice.

Some rice varieties may require more water for cooking, such as wild rice blends, Arborio rice or short grain rice. Follow the directions on the packet or use the brown rice cooking table.

Due to the additional water needed to cook brown rice, some starchy water bubbles may rise to the lid while cooking. For best results, wash rice before cooking and keep warm for 20 minutes after cooking to absorb the remaining moisture.

10

RICE VARIATIONS

Savory Rice

Prepare the rice in the Rice Duo as specified, substituting all the water with the same quantity of chicken, beef, fish, or vegetable stock. Apple juice, orange juice or pineapple juice may be substituted for half of the water quantity.

Sweet Rice

Prepare the rice in the Rice Duo as specified substituting half the water with apple juice, orange juice or pineapple juice. Cooking rice with milk or cream is not recommended as it will burn onto the bottom of the removable cooking bowl.

Saffron Rice

Add 14 teaspoon of saffron powder or 2 saffron threads to every 2 cups of water. Use the white rice cooking tables. Mix well.

Arborio Rice

Arborio rice is short round-grainedpearly rice often used for Italian risotto cooking. Use the brown rice cooking tables.

Jasmine Rice

Jasmine rice is fragrant long grain rice. Use the white rice cooking tables.

Basmati Rice

Basmati rice is an aromatic long grain rice. Use the white rice cooking tables.

Wild Rice

It is not recommended to cook wild rice alone in the Rice Duo as it requires a substantial amount of water. It is possible to cook wild rice as a blend with white or brown rice.

STEAMING FOODS

Steamed foods retain most of their nutritional value when cooked in the Rice Duo. Foods may be steamed by placing food in the stainless steel steaming tray over stock or water and covering with the glass lid. Keep the glass lid on while steaming food unless the recipe or chart specifically states to remove the lid. By removing the lid unnecessarily steam is lost and the cooking time will be extended.

1.Measure 3 Rice Duo cups or more of water or stock into the removable cooking bowl. Use up to a maximum of 6 Rice Duo cups of water.

2.Place food to be steamed directly onto the stainless steel steaming tray. (Refer to the Steaming Charts on the pages 12 –14for approximate cooking times).

3.Place removable cooking bowl into stainless steel housing and cover with the glass lid.

4.Plug into a 120 volt power outlet, the amber ‘Warm’ light will illuminate.

5.Push the selector control down to begin cooking. The red ‘Cook’ light will illuminate.

6.When the liquid starts to boil place the steaming tray into cooking bowl and replace the lid.

7.When steaming is complete, remove foods from the Rice Duo. If further steaming is required ensure sufficient water is in the

removable cooking bowl. If not, add more hot water or stock.

8.Turn the Rice Duo off by unplugging from the power outlet. Allow to cool before cleaning.

Do not let the removable cooking bowl boil dry during steaming.

Hot liquid can be added during the steaming process.

HINTS AND TIPS FOR STEAMING VEGETABLES

Smaller pieces will steam faster than larger pieces.

Try to keep vegetables to a standard size to ensure even cooking.

Fresh or frozen vegetables may be steamed.

If steaming frozen vegetables, do not thaw.

The size and shape of vegetables, as well as personal taste, may call for adjustments to the cooking time. If softer vegetables are required, allow extra cooking time.

Do not allow water or stock to reach the stainless steel tray. The steaming will not be effective.

ALWAYS LIFT AND REMOVE THE LID CAREFULLY, ANGLING IT AWAY

CARE AND CLEANING

Switch off the Rice Duo by unplugging from the power outlet.

Allow all parts to cool before removing the removable cooking bowl. Wash the removable cooking bowl, stainless steel steaming tray and glass lid in hot, soapy water, rinse and dry thoroughly.

Breville does not recommend that any parts of your Rice Duo are washed in a dishwasher as harsh detergents and hot water temperatures may stain or distort the removable cooking bowl and accessories.

Do not use abrasive cleaners, steel wool, or metal scouring pads as these can damage the non-sticksurface.

The stainless steel housing can be wiped over with a damp cloth and then dried thoroughly.

If rice has cooked onto the bottom of the removable cooking bowl, fill the bowl with hot, soapy water and leave to stand for approximately 10 minutes before cleaning.

DO NOT IMMERSE STAINLESS STEEL HOUSING, POWER CORD

 

OR PLUG IN WATER OR ANY OTHER LIQUID AS THIS MAY CAUSE
