1978 Breville Teasmade 860d

The Breville 860d was a rebadged Goblin 860, made by BSR. I have not seen any other Breville 860s, only the d. The date of this model is not confirmed. A reader suggests 1978, although previous research suggested early 80’s. If you have documentary evidence please let me know!

Models are known to have been exported to Australia. The example illustrated was contributed by website visitor, Terry. He writes:

“Interesting to note that the underside of the ceramic teapot and kettle is blatantly Goblin, as you’ll see in the photos. The serial number is Breville, and you may note the Breville branding on the clock fascia written ‘behind’ the Teasmade script. The colour is given a pinkish hue due to the soft lighting we have in our technical training classrooms. I did not adjust the hue to bring it back to the white it really is. There was too much glare when I used the flash.

I picked up the Teasmade from a ‘junk’ sale in northern New South Wales a couple of years ago, after having seen my first at a antique store here in Brisbane, Queensland. From what I rememmber, and so does my daughter, the antique store one had a radio. Probably an 870, although I thought it was more ‘art deco’ than the more modern ones. Wife convinced me not to buy it, but next time…..”

  5. We had one of these growing up in the 80’s in Australia. I wonder if anybody knows what they cost brand new early 80’s. Cheers. Ben

  6. I have this same teasmade with the instruction manual. There is no date that I can find on the unit, however, the manual says it was printed in 1978.

  7. Does anyone know if you can adjust the buzzer volume? I have followed the goblin instructions but there is no adjustment knob on the Breville model.

  8. I have a Breville teasmaid 860D in excellent condition but missing it’s manual. Therefore, l don’t understand how to set the timer. I am interested in selling it for approximately $100 .

  9. Remove the light lid, and there is a button or screw with the bell sign turn it to the desired volume

  10. I am looking for a boiler lid 1978 Breville Teasmade Model No: 860d Serial No: 661007 Could any one direct me if there is a spare parts supplier in Australia or if anyone has an extra lid. Could someone help please as this is for my 16 years old and old fascion grand daughter’s present.

  11. The lid on mine was stuck too but I up-ended it an put it in very hot (shallow) water for a minute (being careful not to get water on the electric socket) and was able to unscrew it. It has a very substantial rubber seal around the lid and I have to press down to screw the lid back on. I now know not to screw it too much! I am also looking for the instructions!
