Keep your lattes, espressos, cappuccinos and mochas tasting fresh with Breville’s cleaning tablets, which will remove every inch of residue from your shower screen and filter basket. Barista tip: Don’t forget to use filtered water and clean your steam wand and portafilters as well.

The Combi Wave™ 3 in 1
The Combi Wave™ 3 in 1 is one of the most powerful, convenient and efficient microwaves out there. It can do anything from defrosting dishes to reheating leftovers, cooking a pizza, some grilled cheese sandwiches and a coffee cake… but also popping pop corn, air frying French fries and roasting an entire duck or chicken. Its Element IQ® system distributes heat much more evenly than a standard oven, which can often result in some undercooked or overcooked portions of a dish. This top-performing microwave will facilitate preparing large meals when having friends and family over by reducing the amount of pots, pans and ovenware in your oven and on your stovetop. Just imagine what Julia Child would have done with one of these…who knows what other acclaimed recipes she would have stunned the world with (and maybe how much less Mastering the Art of French Cooking would weigh).
The Handy Mix Scraper™
If you don’t have the countertop space for a stand mixer or simply don’t use one very often, have no fear, The Handy Mix Scraper™ is here.

Breville’s model featured attachments with rubber caps to protect your bowl from scrapes and your ears from disagreeable noise. The integrated timer will help you follow recipes to a T and the pause button is extremely useful when you need add ingredients before resuming your mixing.
