The Breville Multi-Speed Ikon Juicer is comprised of the following parts, most of which are dishwasher safe. Please see the table below for reference.
Note: Parts that are dishwasher safe should only be washed on the top shelf of the dishwasher.
The Ikon Juicer (product review page) is easy to clean and nearly all parts are dishwasher safe.
The manufacturers suggest lining the pulp container with a plastic bag to make cleanup even more of a snap. Simply lift out the bag and discard the pulp when you are finished juicing. Alternatively, the waste container can also be easily removed from the main unit, emptied, and hand washed or placed in the dishwasher.
The juicing unit itself cannot be washed in the sink or dishwasher, as it contains the motor and control panel. The unit can easily be wiped down with a cloth and any commercial stainless steel appliance cleaner to remove spots and smudges. Avoid using cleaners containing chlorine bleach or other cleaners known to discolor stainless steel. A convenient cleaning brush is also included. Use the brush to remove dust or plant bits from crevices and harder to reach parts of the machine.
Ease of cleanup is an important consideration with any juicer or blender. The Breville Ikon’s dishwasher safe parts and accessories make cleaning simple, freeing up more time for you to enjoy your fresh, healthful juice.

REMOVING STUBBORN OR STRONG FOOD STAINS AND ODORS
Discoloration of the plastic may occur with brightly colored fruit and vegetables. To help prevent this, wash parts immediately after use. If discoloration does occur, the plastic parts can be soaked in water with 10% lemon juice or they can be cleaned with a non abrasive cleaner.
CLEANING THE CUTTING DISK/FILTER BOWL (“NUTRI DISC™”)
Cleaning the Nutri Disc™ For consistent juicing results always ensure that the Nutri Disc™ is thoroughly cleaned using the supplied cleaning brush. 1. Soak the Nutri Disc™ in hot soapy water for approximately 10 minutes immediately after juicing is completed. If pulp is left to dry on the filter it may clog the fine pores of the filter mesh thereby lessening the effectiveness of the juicer. 2. Using the cleaning brush, hold the juice disc under running water and brush from the inside of the basket to the outer rim. Avoid touching the small sharp blades in the center of the Nutri Disc™. After cleaning the Nutri Disc™, hold it up towards a light to ensure the fine mesh holes are not blocked. If the holes are blocked, soak the Nutri Disc™ in hot water with 10% lemon juice to loosen the blocked holes. Alternatively, wash the Nutri Disc™ in the dishwasher.
