Thanks for joining. We're so glad to have you. Here are some ideas to get you started on the road to cooking smarter.
Follow along as we develop a recipe from start to finish. Each day, our chefs keep notes as they modify, test, and improve their recipes. Use what you learn to test our recipes and offer suggestions, or develop your own!
Drawing on our years of combined culinary experience, we create hands-on online classes about food and cooking that are both informative and entertaining. We won't tell you how to use a whipping siphon or make macarons from scratch — we'll show you.

At this time, Breville does not respond to Do Not Track browser settings or signals. In addition, Breville may use other technology that is standard to the Internet, such as pixel tags, web beacons, and other similar technologies, to track visitors to Breville’s website. Those tools may be used by us and by third parties to collect information about you and your internet activity, even if you have turned on the Do Not Track signal.
We store the information we collect about you for as long as is necessary for the purpose(s) for which we originally collected it, or for other legitimate business purposes, including to meet our legal, regulatory, tax, bookkeeping or other compliance obligations.
Additional Privacy Data Protection Notice for Users Individuals in the EEA
If you are in the European Economic Area (“EEA”), you have certain rights and protections under the EU General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) and applicable national data protection law regarding the processing of your personal data.
IMPORTANT: Data Processing in the United States
Legal Basis for Processing
1. If you are already a ChefSteps customer and you already sent personal data to ChefSteps, not much will change for your data protection. ChefSteps has legally received your personal data under the EU-US/Swiss-US Privacy Shield (cf. its current Privacy Shield registration with the US Department of Commerce at https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000TQSmAAO&status=Active). Breville will be the new data controller for these data sets and will provide an adequate level of data protection. Breville may share these data sets with its parent company, Breville Pty. Ltd. in Australia, for IT and marketing purposes as described in this Policy. Both companies will be bound by a so-called Onward Transfer Agreement as foreseen by Section 3 (a) of the Privacy Shield Principles (available at https://www.privacyshield.gov/servlet/servlet.FileDownload?file=015t00000004qAg ).
2. Your personal data that Breville will receive via its EU-based subsidiaries will be protected by EU Standard Contractual Clauses (EU Model Clauses) between the relevant companies (Art. 46 (1) (d) GDPR).
3. The transfer of the new personal data to Breville, e.g. through any the websites will be based on Art. 49 GDPR. In particular, the transfer of your personal data (name, email address, phone number, billing address, shipping address, information you store on our services, your IP address) is necessary for the performance of the contract between you and Breville or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures taken at the data subject’s request - Art. 49 (1) (b) GDPR.
4. For your photographs, forum contributions, personal recipes etc. or social media contacts that you send us to post them on our websites, Breville will rely on Art. 49 (1) 2nd sentence GDPR as the legal basis. This provision states that under a number of specific, expressly enumerated conditions, personal data can be transferred to the United States if it is necessary for the purposes of compelling legitimate interests pursued by the data exporter (the individual). Breville has performed a “legitimate interest” analysis. In particular, Breville has considered that individuals have an interest in knowing about new products and services as the ones they have ordered. We have also considered that you may send us photographs and social media contacts with the specific purpose to upload them so that they may be visible worldwide.
Once the EU personal data are in the United States or Australia, we process your personal data in the following situations:
· When we need to use your personal data to perform our responsibilities under our contract with you (e.g., processing payments for and providing the products or services you have requested);
· When we have a legitimate interest in processing your personal data. For example, we process your personal data to communicate with you about changes to our Services, and to provide, secure, and improve our Services;
· When the processing is necessary for us to fulfill a legal obligation; or
· When we have your consent to do so.
EU Data Subject Requests
You have the right to access personal data we hold about you and to ask that your personal data be corrected, erased (to the extent allowed by applicable law), or transferred. You also have the right to object to, or request that we restrict certain processing. If our processing of your personal data is based on your consent, you have the right to withdraw your consent for future processing at any time. If you would like to exercise any of these rights, you can log into your account and edit certain account information or contact us at email@example.com
The EU’s GDPR requires that personal data from the EU/EEA must be especially protected. In addition, all EU-based individuals, irrespective of their nationality (“data subjects”) have certain individual rights under the GDPR, such as:
1. The right to be informed about the collection and use of their personal data.
2. The right of access to find out that is stored about them.
3. The right to rectification of their personal data if it is inaccurate or incomplete.
4. The right to erasure to enable an individual to request the deletion or removal of personal data where there is no compelling reason for its continued processing.
5. The right to restrict processing to ‘block’ or suppress processing of personal data.
6. The right to data portability allowing individuals to obtain and reuse their personal data for their own purposes across different services.
7. The right to object to the processing based on legitimate interests or the performance of a task in the public interest/exercise of official authority (including profiling), direct marketing and/or for purposes of scientific/historical research and statistics.
8. Various rights in relation to automated decision making (making a decision solely by automated means without any human involvement) and profiling (automated processing of personal data to evaluate certain things about an individual).
If you would like to exercise any of these rights, you can log into your account and edit certain account information or contact us as described below.
