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

Read all instructions before using.

Do not touch hot surfaces. Use handles or knobs.

To protect against electrical shock do not immerse cord, plug or other non-removable parts of this toaster in water or other liquid.

Unplug from outlet when not in use and before cleaning. Allow to cool before cleaning or taking off parts.

The use of accessory attachments not recommended by the manufacturer may cause injuries.

Do not use appliance for other than intended use.

Oversized foods or metal utensils must not be inserted in toaster as they may cause a fire or risk of electric shock.

A fire may occur if the toaster is covered or touching flammable material, including curtains, draperies, walls, and the like, when in operation.

Do not leave appliance unattended when in use.

Do not attempt to dislodge food when toaster is plugged in.

Be certain appliance is OFF before inserting or removing plug from wall outlet.

Failure to clean crumb tray may result in fire hazard.

Do not clean with metal scouring pads. Pieces can break off the pad and touch electrical parts, creating a shock hazard.

Your toaster needs no special care other than cleaning. If servicing becomes necessary, return appliance to Breville. Do not attempt to repair it yourself.

For household use only.

Do not immerse appliance or cord in water or any other liquid.

This appliance is not intended for use by young children. It should be used by children only when supervised by adults.

Do not leave the appliance unattended when in use.

Always use the appliance on a dry, level surface.

If this appliance becomes damaged, immediately stop use and call Breville Customer Service at 1-866-Breville.

In the interests of safety, periodically inspect the electrical cord of this appliance. If there are signs that the cord is worn, cracked or damaged, contact Breville Customer Service at 1-866-Breville.

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

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

Never use a knife or any other object to remove jammed toast, bagels or any other items from the toaster; this can damage the elements as well as lead to electrocution.


This toaster should not be used near or below combustible material like curtains or place mats.

Do not allow hot surfaces of toaster to come in contact with countertops or tables. Do not store or cover this appliance until the unit has fully cooled down.

Always unplug your appliance when not in use.

This toaster should not be used near or below curtains or other combustible material and it should be supervised at all times when in use.

Do not use outdoors.

Care must be taken not to touch any hot surfaces, do not store or cover the appliance until the unit has fully cooled down.

Always attach plug to appliance first, then plug cord into the wall outlet. To disconnect, turn any control to OFF, then remove plug from wall outlet.

Do not place on or near a hot gas or electric burner, or in a heated oven.

Do not operate any appliance with a damaged cord or plug or after the appliance malfunctions or has been damaged in any manner. Return appliance

to the nearest authorized service facility for examination, repair, or adjustment.

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 toaster is electronically controlled : it will not lock toast down into position until the appliance is plugged into power outlet.


To prevent personal injury or property damage caused by fire, always unplug this and other appliances when not in use.

Never operate toaster on its side. Never add any food substance to the bread, English muffins or bagels prior to toasting (such as butter, jelly or marmalade), because this action may also lead to electrocution or to serious bodily injury. Do not use the toaster without the slide out crumb tray in place. Crumb tray should be cleaned regularly. Do not allow crumbs to build up in the crumb tray.

To ensure continued protection against risk of electric shock, connect to properly grounded outlets only.

Electric Cord Statement

Your toaster 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 cordset or an extension cord when using 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 underside of appliance). If appliance is of the grounded type, the extension cord should be a grounding-type 3-wire cord.

Operating your Breville Ikon Toaster

Before first use, remove any promotional material attached to your toaster.

Insert the power plug into a 120 volt power outlet and then turn the power on.

Place up to 4 slices of bread, muffins or bagels into the bread slots.

Select the desired browning setting using the browning control dial. Colour settings range from ‘1’ lightest to ‘9’ darkest.

When using the toaster for the first time, we suggest you toast on setting No. 4. Varying types of bread and personal preference may require a different browning setting, eg: raisin toast and white light-textured breads may require a lower setting, whilst heavier textured rye breads may require a darker setting.

The toaster will remember your desired setting. When the power is turned off to the toaster, the digital control will default to your original desired setting when next switched on.


Press the high lift lever down until it clicks into place. Toasting cycle will automatically commence. As the toasting cycle progresses the LED display will count down and the toasting progress indicator bars will go out until toasting is complete.

If the toaster is not plugged in and switched on at the power outlet, the high lift lever will not click into place.


The Breville Ikon Toaster has a ‘Lift and Look’ feature which does not interrupt the cooking cycle. To check on the toasting progression during the cooking cycle, simply use the high lift lever to raise and lower toast.

The toaster turns off when the desired toast color is achieved and automatically raises the toast. The toasting process can be stopped at any time by pressing the ‘Cancel’ button located on the side of the toaster.

When the toasting cycle is complete, the toaster will ‘beep’ to indicate that the toast is ready. No need to wait while the toast cooks.


High lift

To remove smaller items such as bagels and muffins, lift the high lift lever approximately 3/4 inch above the starting position.

In the unlikely event that the bagel or muffin becomes jammed remove the power cord from the power outlet and then carefully ease the bread out of the toaster, ensuring that you do not damage the element.


Operating your Breville Ikon Toaster continued

Toasting frozen bread

To toast frozen bread, place the bread into the toasting slots, select the desired browning setting, lower the high lift lever until it clicks into place then press the defrost button, this will extend cooking time. The light will illuminate behind the defrost button when selected.

Reheating toast

This function allows you to reheat toast without additional toasting. To reheat, place toast into toasting slots, lower the high lift lever until it clicks into place and press the reheat button. The light will illuminate behind the reheat button when selected.

Toasting bagels

This function adjusts heating elements to perfectly toast golden bagels without burning the outside.

To toast bagels, place bagels into toasting slots with the inside facing inwards toward the middle of

the toaster. Lower the high lift lever until it clicks into place and press the bagels setting.

This setting when activated adjusts the heating elements to produce additional heat to the center elements to cook the inside of your bagel faster than the outside. The light will illuminate behind the bagel button when selected.

The LED illumination will fade after approximately 5 minutes. The illumination will reappear when any of the controls are used.


Bagels must always face inwards towards the middle of the toaster. The toaster always reverts back to the bread toast setting after each toasting cycle, unless the bagel control setting is activated again.




Care and cleaning

The crumb tray should be cleaned out regularly. Do not allow breadcrumbs to accumulate in the bottom of the toaster.

Always remove power cord from power outlet before cleaning the toaster.

To remove any crumbs from the toaster, slide out the crumb tray from under the toaster, empty and replace it before using the toaster again.

Wipe the outside of the toaster with a slightly dampened cloth and polish with a soft dry cloth.

To clean the interior, turn the toaster upside down over the sink or waste bin and shake crumbs free.


Always switch off and then remove the power

cord from the power outlet and allow to completely cool before storing.
