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. When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should always be followed including:

Important safeguards

Read all instructions

Remove and safely discard any packing materials and promotional labels before using the grill for the first time.

To eliminate a choking hazard for young children, remove and safely discard the protective cover fitted to the power plug of this appliance.

Do not place the grill near the edge of a bench or table during operation. Ensure the surface is level, clean and free of water, flour, etc.

Always operate the grill on a stable, heat resistant surface. Do not use on a clothcovered surface, near curtains or other flammable materials.

A fire may occur if the grill is covered or touches flammable materials, including curtains, draperies, walls, and the like, when in operation.

Do not place the grill on or near a hot gas or electric burner, or where it could touch a heated oven.

Do not let the power cord hang over the edge of a table or counter, or touch hot surfaces.

To protect against electric shock do not immerse the grill, power cord or power plug in water or any other liquid.

When operating the grill, keep a minimum distance of 4" (10cm) of space on both sides of the appliance. This

will allow for adequate air circulation and help prevent the possibility of wall discoloration due to radiated heat.

Do not touch hot surfaces. Appliance surfaces, including the outer surface of the grill are hot during and after

operation. To prevent burns or personal injury, always use protective hot pads or insulated oven mitts and use the handle to lift the top plate. Alternatively, allow the grill to cool down before handling.

On surfaces where heat may cause a problem, an insulating mat is recommended.

Do not operate without the drip tray in place.

The use of any accessory attachments not recommended by Breville may cause injuries.

This appliance is for household use only.

Do not use the appliance for anything other than its intended purpose as described in this booklet. Do not use outdoors. Do not use in moving vehicles or boats.

Do not leave the appliance unattended when in use.

Close supervision is necessary when the appliance is used by or near children.

This appliance is not intended for use by persons (including children) with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities or lack of experience and knowledge, unless they have been given supervision or instruction concerning use of the appliance by a person responsible for their safety.

BREVILLE RECOMMENDS SAFETY FIRST

When the grill is not in use or when left unattended, ensure the grill is turned OFF by turning the Temperature Dial to the ‘OFF’ position. The grill is OFF when the LCD screen displays ‘OFF’ and the default ‘0’ zero time. Remove the power plug from the wall outlet.

Before attempting to move the grill, or before assembling or disassembling parts, cleaning or storing, turn OFF the grill, allow to cool and disconnect from the wall outlet.

Strictly follow the Care and Cleaning instructions on page 24.

Do not use harsh abrasives or caustic cleansers when cleaning this appliance.

Extreme caution must be used when moving an appliance containing hot oil or other hot liquids.

This appliance is equipped with a power cord having a grounding wire with a grounding plug. The appliance must

be grounded using a 3-hole properly grounded outlet. In the event of an electrical short circuit, grounding reduces the risk of electrical shock.

If the power outlet is a standard 2-prong wall outlet, it is your personal responsibility and obligation to have it replaced with a properly grounded 3-prong wall outlet.

Do not, under any circumstances, cut or remove the third (ground) prong from the power cord or use an adapter.

Consult a qualified electrician if the grounding instructions are not completely understood, or if doubt exists as to whether the appliance is properly grounded.

The installation of a residual current device (safety switch) is recommended to provide additional safety protection when using electrical appliances. It is advisable that a safety switch with a rated residual operation current not exceeding 30mA be installed in the electrical circuit supplying the appliance. See your electrician for professional advice.

Regularly inspect the supply cord, plug and actual appliance for any damage. Do not operate if damaged in anyway or after the appliance malfunctions. Immediately cease use of the appliance and call Breville Customer Service at 1-866-BREVILLE for examination, repair or adjustment.

For any maintenance other than cleaning, call Breville Customer Service at 1-866-BREVILLE.

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

BREVILLE RECOMMENDS SAFETY FIRST

ELECTRIC cord INSTRUCTIONS

Your Breville appliance is fitted with a short power supply cord as a safety precaution to reduce the risk of personal injury or property damage resulting from pulling, tripping or becoming entangled with a longer cord. Longer detachable power supply cords or extension cords are available and may be used if care is exercised in their use. If a long detachable power supply cord or extension cord is used: (1) the marked electrical rating of the cord or extension cord should be at least as great as the electrical rating of the appliance; (2) if the appliance is of the grounded type, the extension cord should be a grounding 3-wire cord; and (3) the longer cord should be arranged so that

it does not drape over the countertop or tabletop where it can be pulled on by children or tripped over unintentionally.

10.Place food on the bottom cooking plate.

NOTE:

Do not use spray-on, non-stick coatings as these will affect the performance of the non-stick cooking plates.

NOTE:

For best cooking results when toasting paninis:

-Always place paninis on the center of the bottom plate.

-Toasting should take approximately 5-8 minutes. Exact toasting time will be a matter of preference and the type of bread and fillings used. For more tips and tricks, refer to Grilling Tips (page 20), Grilling Guide (page 23) and Recipes (page 28).

NOTE:

The LCD screen may display 'HEATING' during the cooking process. This is normal, indicating that the correct temperature is being maintained.

11.Use the handle to close the top cooking plate. The top cooking plate has two features designed to produce optimum cooking results:

a)Floating Top Plate. The top cooking plate is hinged, allowing the top plate to be positioned horizontally

on the food surface. This ensures the front of the food is as evenly cooked as the back. It also allows the top plate to float above the food surface, radiating heat to create open sandwich style ‘melts’.

NOTE:

The surfaces of the grill are hot during and after operation. Always use the integrated Leveling Support/‘Plate Release’ on the front, right side of the top cooking plate when adjusting the position of the top plate. Alternatively, use protective hot pads or insulated oven mitts.

The Leveling SUPPORT may get hot during and after operation. Always use the Leveling SUPPORT as pictured.

Never grip the Leveling SUPPORT or use it to open the top cooking plate. ALWAYS USE THE GRILL HANDLE to open and close the top cooking plate.

b)Adjustable Height Control. This feature reduces the weight of the top plate on delicate foods like fish and accommodates varying thicknesses of food like artisan breads. Located on the right side of the top plate, the clip fixes the top plate to a range of positions above the bottom plate. To set the Adjustable Height

Grilling Tips

Meats

Recommended Cuts:

Beef - Sirloin (New York), Rump, Rib Eye (Scotch Fillet), Fillet.

Lamb - Trim Lamb Leg Steaks, Fillet, Eye of Loin, Cutlets and Diced Lamb.

Pork - Butterfly Loin Steaks, Spare Ribs, Leg Steaks, Fillets, Diced Pork.

It is not recommended to cook items with thick bones such as T-bone steaks.

Tougher cuts such as beef blade, topside steak, lamb forequarter or neck chops can be used. To tenderize these cuts, marinate them for a few hours or overnight in a marinade with wine or vinegar to help break down the connective tissue.

If using a marinade recipe or pre-marinated meats from your meat retailer, drain excess marinade off and dab the meat with paper towels before placing on the grill. Some marinades contain high sugar levels which can scorch on the cooking plate.

Do not salt meat before cooking. Salt will draw out the juices, toughening the meat.

Do not pierce meat with a fork or cut meat while cooking. This will let the juices escape, resulting in a tougher, dry steak. Use tongs instead.

Do not over cook meat. Some meats are better served pink and juicy.

Parboiling sausages can alleviate the need to pierce sausages before cooking.

When removing fish pieces from the grill, use a flat heat resistant plastic spatula to support the food.

OPERATING YOUR BREVILLE SMART GRILL

Judging doneness

There is an art to determining when your steak, lamb chop or cutlet is cooked to the correct degree of doneness – rare, medium rare, medium, medium well or well done – but it is easily mastered with these handy hints and tips.

NOTE:

USDA Recommended Internal Temperatures are as follows:

-Medium 145°F

-Medium Well 160°F

-Well Done 170°F

Rare

Cook for a few minutes per side, depending on thickness. Turn once only. Cook until steak feels very soft with back of tongs. A meat thermometer will show the internal temperature of a rare steak as 130-140°F (55-60°C).

Medium rare

Cook on one side until moisture is just visible on top surface. Turn once only. Cook on the other side until surface moisture is visible. Steak will be cooked to medium rare when it feels soft with back of tongs. A meat thermometer will show the internal temperature of a medium rare steak as 140-150°F (60-65°C).

Medium

Cook on one side until moisture is pooling on top surface. Turn once only. Cook on second side until moisture is visible. Steak will be cooked to medium when it feels springy with back of tongs. A meat thermometer will show the internal temperature of a medium steak as 150-160°F (65-70°C).

Medium well

Cook on one side until moisture is pooling on top surface. Turn and cook on second side until moisture is pooling on top. Reduce heat slightly and continue to cook until steak feels firm with back of tongs. A meat thermometer will show the internal temperature of a medium well steak as 160-170°F (70-75°C).

Well done

Cook on one side until moisture is pooling on top surface. Turn and cook on second side until moisture is pooling on top. Reduce heat slightly and continue to cook until steak feels very firm with back of tongs. A meat thermometer will show the internal temperature of a well done steak as 170°F (75°C).

Panini Sandwiches

Bread

The grill is ideal for toasting most types of bread (white, wholemeal, kibbled wheat, wholegrain etc), as well as artisan breads (Foccacia, Turkish bread, baguettes, bread rolls etc). Raisin bread, brioche or other sweet breads which contain high sugar content will tend to brown quicker.

Fillings

Try to use canned or pre-cooked fruit as fresh fruit may release excessive juices when heated. Be careful when biting into sandwiches containing fillings such as cheese and tomato or jam as they retain heat and can burn if eaten too quickly.

Toasting Bread

The flat plate makes the grill ideal for toasting plain breads and Turkish bread, without any fillings or spreads. Try toasting Turkish bread with jam for a great alternative to standard breads at breakfast.

Fat Free Snacks

Due to the non-stick flat plate, it is not necessary to use any butter or margarine on the outside of your toasted snacks.

CARE & CLEANING

your Breville Smart Grill

Care & cleaning YOUR BREVILLE SMART GRILL

Ensure the grill is turned OFF by turning the Temperature Dial to the ‘OFF’ position. The grill is OFF when the LCD screen displays ‘OFF’ and the default ‘0’ zero time. Remove the power plug from the wall outlet. Allow the grill to cool completely before disassembling and cleaning.

Always clean the outer body, drip tray and cooking plates after each use to prevent a build-up of ingredients.

NOTE:

Do not use abrasive cleansers or metal scouring pads on any of the interior or exterior surfaces of the grill. These will scratch the surfaces and damage the non-stick coating on the cooking plates.

Do not immerse the body, power cord or power plug in water or any other liquid as this may cause electrocution.

Cleaning the outer body

Wipe the outer body with a soft, damp sponge. A non-abrasive liquid cleanser or mild spray solution may be used to avoid build-up of stains. Apply the cleanser to the sponge, not the grill surface, before cleaning. Rinse. Let all surfaces dry thoroughly prior to inserting the power plug into a wall outlet.

Cleaning the drip tray

After each use, slide out the drip tray and discard contents. Wash the tray in warm soapy water with a soft, damp sponge.

A non-abrasive liquid cleanser may be used to avoid build-up of stains. Apply the cleanser to the sponge, not the tray, before cleaning. Rinse and dry thoroughly. Always

ensure to re-insert the drip tray into the grill after cleaning and prior to inserting the power plug into a wall outlet.

Extreme caution must be used when handling the drip tray containing hot fats and juices.

Cleaning the cooking plates

2.Alternatively, release and remove the cooking plates:

-Always ensure the grill is completely cool.

-Use the handle to open the top plate to a 90 degree position.

-Use the ‘Plate Release’ on the front, right side of the top plate to remove the top cooking plate, and the ‘Plate Release’ on the left side of the control panel to remove the bottom cooking plate.

-Once released, gently slide the plates off the grill.

3.Place the cooking plates in the dishwasher (top shelf only).

4.Alternatively, wash the cooking plates in hot soapy water with a soft, damp sponge. A non-abrasive liquid cleanser may be used to avoid build-up of stains.

Apply the cleanser to the sponge, not the plate, before cleaning. Remove stubborn residue with a non-abrasive plastic scouring pad or nylon washing brush.
